How To Cook Some Of Your Favorite Dishes From Zelda: Breath Of The Wild [WATCH]

If you’re like me and have been playing Nintendo’s amazing new video game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild nonstop since it came out, you’ve probably spent quite a bit of time cooking dishes for your character, Link, to eat. Ever wonder what some of those dishes, like mushroom risotto and monster cake, would taste like in real life?

Lucky for us, we have YouTube channel Binging with Babish to deliver the answer for us. Host Andrew Rea takes us through three dishes you can make in-game during the above video. These include a wild mushroom risotto, baked apples, and a monster cake that Rea gives a monster-like fruit twist through a particular secret ingredient.

As always, Rea stayed as close to the games as possible, cooking most of the food on cookware over an open flame and even resorting to only using goat butter, the game’s sole source of fat, for the entire video.

It’s a pretty accurate rendition of what these recipes would be like if Link and his adventures were real, and we can’t wait to try these out for ourselves.


Nerd up Your Boozy Game With This Legend of Zelda Deku Flask

From old school NES cartridges turned flasks to Mario “Beerio” Kart, mixing video games and alcohol is always a great decision. The Drunken Moogle, famous for creating signature cocktails, drinking games, and nerdtastic drinkware based on video games, has added this Legend of Zelda Deku Flask to their product line.

The Deku Shield flask is much more durable than its video game counterpart. The design is printed on commercial grade vinyl making it water resistant, scratch resistant, and UV proof so the design won’t fade. Fill your flask with whatever your boozy heart desires, speaking of hearts, might we suggest some Red Potion?

We’re not responsible for any Zelda fans who decide to drunkenly frolic in the forest dancing to Saria’s Song.

Deku Flask, $19.99 @ The Drunken Moogle

Behold: The Video Game Food Pyramid

Prepare to eat pixel dust, fellow gamers. This video game food pyramid recommends daily servings of health-replenishing crutches from our favorite childhood games, including Super Mario Bros., Zelda, Pacman, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage. At the moment, we’re debating on what disembodied hearts and anthropomorphic stars would actually taste like. So far we’ve got strawberry, cherry and red fruit loops for the pixelated hearts and lemon drops for the creepy star. Yes, we have a lot of time on our hands.

Although, we don’t quite trust the turkey from Streets of Rage. I’d rather chow down on a blue ghost (tastes like blueberries!) than poultry suspiciously left on the street.

Behold: The Legend of Zelda Animated Skyward Sword Cake

Did you ever get a cake this cool for your birthday? Made up of rice crispie treats, box cake mix, canned frosting and a whole lot of skill, Will and Liliana Turnbow designed this incredible Skyward Sword cake for their daughter’s 10th birthday.

This cake features the world of Skyloft, Faron Woods and even the Sealed Grounds. As if the cake wasn’t cool enough already, the Turbows decided to take it a step further and make the thing animated!

Link can be seen roaming the skies on his trusty loftwing, an octorok peeks out now and again and of course we can’t forget the villian of the game Ghirahim, watching ominously over the entire land.

Will says on his blog that the original cake plan included every land in the game and nearly four times as many characters.

If you can believe it, the Turnbows aren’t professional cake designers, they’re just really awesome parents.

Cartoon Link Bento Box

Cartoon Link is arguably one of the greatest/worst things to ever happen to Nintendo’s Zelda video game franchise. Whether you’re a hardcore Zelda fan, or have only seem the imagery in passing, you can respect the artistic merit of this completely edible Bento Box artwork.

The folks at mybealbox have worked their magic fingers once again re-creating the setting for this iconic Link imagery with chicken nuggets, broccoli chunks, corn, beef sausage, a slice of lemon and strawberry jelly. Great. Now I’m hungry…and my geeky nostalgia is kicking in.
