One of my favorite pastimes is cooking for friends. I love throwing together fresh ingredients to make something tasty and wonderful to share. It’s like modern alchemy.
Steampunk continues to grow and define itself as a subculture and is being incorporated into people’s lives in remarkably creative ways. Modifications abound to technology, furniture, and fashion to make them more in line with out aesthetic preferences. Aaron, the author of the blog Steampunk Cookery, suggests that food too can be Steampunk:
If you can sew a steampunk wardrobe, write a steampunk story, and create a steampunk computer… why shouldn’t you cook steampunk food?
Indeed, why not? There’s already been a Steampunk cookbook created by the community via Brass Goggles, so the concept should not be terribly foreign. After all, the culinary arts and its resulting tasty food has a powerful ability to unite people and uplift moods.
Today’s post on Steampunk Cookery features The Victorian Tea Trifecta, a dessert that sounds positively decadent. There’s tons of Steamy recipes here, so be sure to check back often.
