Unofficial Recipes from Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Harry
Potter, and more Real-Life Recipes for Your Favorite Fantasy


Cassandra Reeder, the Geeky Chef

Page 92

As mentioned in the foreword, this was the recipe that inspired me to create
Geeky Chef, so it holds a very dear place in my heart and stomach.

In Twilight Princess, Link is told that a monster has been seen around Zora’s
domain and seems to have an affinity for reekfish, which is a sort of red-colored
fish known for its pungent smell. You track down the monster by following the
scent of the reekfish into the snowy mountains. Upon finding the “monster,” you
discover that he is a yeti named Yeto who lives in the Snowpeak Ruins with his
wife. The Yeti’s wife (Yeta) has fallen ill and the reekfish is needed to go in the
soup that will make her feel better. When you arrive in the ruins Yeto prepares
the soup’s reekfish base, but he wants to add more ingredients to make the soup
even better. So he sends you off to perilously retrieve a pumpkin and some goat
cheese from a different area of the ruins. There’s just something about coming
back to the warm kitchen of the icy abandoned ruins where Yeto is brewing a
giant cauldron of soup that’s very comforting.

This recipe is pretty simple because I wanted the three main ingredients to
shine; everything else is just there to complement and enhance. I’ve revised it
slightly from the version that is on the blog, but not much. This is truly one of
my favorite soups, and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!


2 pounds (900g) kabocha or pumpkin, seeded, peeled, and diced 1 medium white onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, cut into quarters
1/4 cup (50ml) olive oil 4 1/2 cups (1L) fish, chicken, or vegetable stock, divided 1–2 salmon fillets
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup (75g) goat cheese About 1 cup (240ml) cream
Fresh basil leaves, to taste

1 Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

2 Toss the pumpkin, onion, and garlic in a bowl with a bit of olive oil until they
are all coated.

3 Roast the vegetables in the oven on a baking sheet until they are tender, about
45 minutes, and have nice browned edges. Transfer to a soup pot over
medium heat.

4 Add 3 3/4 cups (890ml) of stock to the pot and simmer for up to 45 minutes,
or until all the vegetables are fully cooked.

5 Meanwhile, season the salmon fillets with a little salt and pepper and pan-fry
until cooked through. Set aside.

6 Transfer the soup to a food processor and blend until smooth—you may need
to do this in batches depending on the size of your food processor.

7 Blend in small amounts of the goat cheese along with the cream. Add the
remaining stock to the soup until it reaches your preferred thickness.

8 Flake the cooked salmon and add to soup.

9 Tear in a few basil leaves, taste for flavor, and add salt and pepper if needed.
