The Elder Scrolls is one of my favorite video game series of all time. I enjoy all entries in this franchise, including the spinoffs and The Elder Scrolls Online. While many of The Elder Scrolls games have been successful, Skyrim is the one that practically everyone knows. The fifth entry in the series, it has sold over 30 million copies across various systems since its release in 2011. This summer I completed the main quest in this game, along with numerous side quests, on the Nintendo Switch. I also sunk more than 150 hours into The Elder Scrolls Online on my PC – which is an excellent game that I highly recommend. When I read that Skyrim’s open world was coming to a tabletop game created by Modiphius, entitled The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, I was intrigued.

The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook is a beautifully bound hardback book that clocks in at nearly 200 pages and more than 70 easy-to-follow recipes so you can take in all of the diverse tastes of Tamriel. Released in 2019 by Insight Editions, this cookbook does a wonderful job of respecting its source material and providing gamers and foodies alike with a wealth of options to try at home. As a longtime fan of the Elder Scrolls franchise, I appreciate having the opportunity to create dishes I’ve only ever seen in the games. It’s a fascinating and brilliant bridge between Tamriel and reality. Yes, other cookbooks have done this in the past. However, the Elder Scrolls games are steeped in rich history and culture that goes beyond other titles – making this book feel like an artifact one might find and read in Skyrim, Oblivion, or Morrowind.
