>An Orc who comes home empty handed either from a Raid or Hunting trip is often look down upon either as unlucky or incompetent, but they are always called a "Dog eater": an Orc so poor they can only afford roasted Dog at their raiding dinner party. >Dwarves can eat soil. They don't prefer soil, but they can eat it. As a rule of thumb you can usually judge a Dwarves economic background by how much dirt they eat and how used to the taste of it they are. An common saying amongst Dwarves hitting rough economic times goes, "And here I was; just getting Nostalgic for the taste of Dirt." >In Lizard and Snake people communities a like there exists a business which is both horrifying and disgusting: A store where live animals such as Chickens, Fish, Large Insects Small Pigs, Guinea Pigs, and Large Rats are kept alive. Customers may then purchase these creatures to either swallow whole, alive or dead is up to preference. These establishments have the same atmosphere as a Cafe. >The Elemental Plane of food is often used to teach children about "dying from success" and Moderation as both people and animals have been known to willingly eat themselves to obesity and dysfunction when exposed to it. >Fire Elemental Creatures are often celebrated as fantastic eats as far as monsters are concerned as they are already "cooked" and even in the ones that do contain parasites or diseases a normal being's body is far too cold to house them. >Many people are often quite shocked by just how common Hydra meat is in swamp lands given the terrible stories they hear of the beasts. Little is it known however that it's quite common for people to contain "Hydra coops" where a juvenile hydra is kept and fed Rats and other unsavory tidbits in exchange for harvesting it's regenerating, delicious and easy to prepare meat. You guys do anything like this? Food is interesting.
>The only disappointing thing about finishing a dragon hunt is the meat: it's worthless not because it isn't edible, but because of it's spicy, gamey, flavor and rather tough texture and difficulty to cook or work with. Giants however have a taste for it and just as well the best recipes for it from centuries of hunting the creatures. >Dwarven and Centaur baking is often celebrated as the best baking in the world. Both species were initially taught baking by humans and both completely stepped it up to 11. Humans even buy more loaves of Bread from Centaurs than they make themselves. >Worm Meat is often likened as the "spam of the dwarves" given how well inexpensive it is, how common it is, how easy it is to prepare, and (un)fortunately because of it's texture.>Minotaurs are often celebrated as making the 'best' curries in the world. It is also however universally agreed that it is a shame they cannot and will not cook with Beef.>As Important as Bread is: Humans, Dwarves, Centaurs, and Giants are often surprised to find out the a large portion of other species/races cannot actually consume gluten or for that matter bread. >Even though they are "evil": Ropers are actually quite delicious shelled, boiled, and cooked with garlic and butter or mushrooms and onions. Nothing?
I like this thread.Figure Drow eat a lot of arthropod and fungus.
My god, what is this? fantasy snacks thread?Anyway, get them snakes and lizards eating that worm meat, that's good protein that they need.
>HydraGood quality white meat, but the meat will always retain a very fishy, swampy, reptilian flavor- some people enjoy it. The meat can be salted and dried into jerky quite easily, the neck may be barbecued or turned into sausages, the body can be stuffed with oranges and baked. The tail though is where all the best quality meat is. A GREAT addition to any Gumbos, Stews, or Chilis, but is a really "local" food for sure.>BulletteThick, gamey, bitter, Red meat with a very "earthy" smell and flavor. Many underground and plains dwelling species have an aquired taste for the meat, but once it's shelled it's almost always barbecued or roasted (usually with a side of mushrooms, dried tomatoes, onions, or potatos). The bones can be kept separate and used to make very nutritious stews- the Organs like wise are 'very' rich in vitamins and minerals if albeit very, very, chewy. >Rust MonsterWhite, buttery, delicious insect/lobster like meat with a 'very' tell-tale sort of irony taste. Rust monsters aren't very versatile: boil them, crack them open, and serve them with butter and lemon. Some Adventurers though love to either on the side or thrown into "dungeon chili". Rust Monsters unfortunately are still treated on a scale lower than incests and recipes for them are Rare. The Organs of this creature are inedible and disgusting and should be thrown away.>DUNGEON CHILI <Dungeon chili is a vague "add everything" sort of stew where in almost ANY kind of meat or produce is thrown into a magical self-heating pot to stew: edible mosses, mushrooms, onions, powdered tomatoes, dried vegetables, and an assortment of random "mob" meat. The taste is never guaranteed, but it is often seen as a warm welcome and change up from "summoned food". Dungeon chili often goes great with a hard dried roll to sop up the juices.
Damnit anon stop convincing me to run in fantasy instead of cyberpunkMy players keep going on about how they want cyberpunk!
>Deep underground there is a form of baking involving spores: Fern spores, mushroom spores, and moss spores a like are all collected and with the combination of crystal clear cave waters make a magnificent flour. This "spore" flour is made to make numerous chewy, fluffy, delicious loaves of "highly" leavened baked Breads and Rolls. >Due to the well traveled nature of the human species: no matter where a human goes any establishment is guaranteed to have a "human friendly menu": Bread, Cobs of Corn, Cheese, simple potato dishes and nourishing glasses of milk are almost always available in such menus. >Little is it known the intense LOVE Dwarves have for cheeses of all kind. No matter if you're on the surface or in a subterranean world of perpetual darkness: Dwarves love cheese. Dwarves make cheese from more animals than any other race: Aardvarks, Dire wombats, Dire Rats, Dire Moles, Yaks, Sheep, Goats, etc.. etc.. >Little is it know that Ogres make some of the finest Cooks in all the land, not because of their attention to detail, but of their love of food and their curiosity. Orcs, Wild Humans, and Animal folk alike climb over one another for Ogre made pierogies, sausages, pies, and especially their numerous secret recipies for stolen livestock. An old Fable goes that an Ogre once escaped being execution by serving a king such a succulent and deliciously garnished Haunch of Mutton with onions, carrots, mashed potatoes and gravy that the king not only spared him but let the Ogre eat his Chef and replace him as head royal cook. There will now be an entire cheese post.

Gorgon Ramsesmedusa with her eyes cut out. she would have been killed if it weren't for the paladin in the group that beat her argueing that since they already blinded her she'd be harmless. they all left and she fell in love with the paladin, but doesn't know his name, so she plans on making herself famous to get him to come to her. decided to become the world's best chef after hearing the phrase "the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach". outside the kitchen she works hard to be polite and "civilized", inside the kitchen she's gordon ramses with snakes for hair
>Minotaur CheeseOften the something viewed initially with cringed looks: Minotaur cheese is some of the finest quality "cow" cheese known to both Humans, Centaurs, and very few lucky Dwarves. Minotaur's take immense pride in their women's cheese and happily sell it to Humans, Centaurs and the odd Elf or Changeling. The Minotaur's themselves don't touch it the stuff. >Aardvark, Wombat, Rat, and Mole. Underground Cheese.The Cheese made by subterranean Dwarves is as varied, flavorful, and delicious as it is suspicious to non-subterranean beings. Rat cheese is often said to be the sharpest and although likened to processed cheese. Dire Wombats simply produce the MOST cheese even if it's bland it has a slight pleasant sweet taste and is quite filling and is actually "chewy". Aardvark cheese is very brittle, the milk itself is better used for Creams or Yogurt due to the Creatures taste for underground Fruit- It's much sweeter than wombat and pleasantly sour. Mole cheese is often smoked: it's firm, keeps well, and has a very pleasant earthy 'cheesy' aroma as it ages as opposed to stinking to high heaven. Cheap Imported Dwarven Cheese is usually either humongous wheels of smoked wombat cheese or individual smaller sharp wheels of Dire Rat Cheese. >Horse CheeseMade usually only by Orcs, this cheese is usually sharper, a little bitter, and VERY high in lactose: often only enjoyed by the Orcs themselves, a few human tribes, and Dwarven cheese fanciers. They make excellent Cream cheeses however and if the Orcs made bread it would go great on toast. >DUNGEON CHEESE<Dungeon cheese is the "mysterious" cheese often found in dungeon storage rooms: it is more often than not smoked Rat, Horse, or Cow cheese.. and it can be quite delicious and a welcome change from dried vegetables and monster meat. If Adventuring parties have any Bread on them: Dungeon Rarebit can be QUITE the little treat.
>>28097121Here here, dragon doesn't sound half bad, that anon is just a pussy.
A common staple for carnivorous races, in addition to cheeses and meats, is insects. Dwarves have their worms, lizards have their leeches, desert snakes have been known to catch and grind down locust swarms into sausage.
>Changelings LOVE pasta and oranges, but they're mostly known for their pasta dishes. In their native archipelago nations Changelings offer and serve up dozens of pasta dishes from something simple as garlic buttered spaghetti with shrimp, to fine lasagnas and beef stuffed ravioli topped with cheese and bacon. >Changelings are also known for religiously guarding the means of "cracking" open a mimic, harvesting it's tough, stretchy, chewy red meat, and turning it into some of the finest dishes around. Baked Mimic with onions, Mimic on the half shell with oranges and fresh muscles, Mimic steak with a side of green onions. >Orcs not only take pride in breeding prize winning pigs, but also their prowess in cooking and serving them. Orcish pork and beans is a staple, but Orcish pork chops, bacon, and pork and rice meatballs in tomato sauce are all known world wide for their quality and flavor. There are few people -even warring humans- who would turn down a line of smoked sausages from an Orcish butchery. >A little known fact is how exactly wide and all inclusive a Giant's knowledge of cooking actually is. A well traveled and long lived species, Giants will live and learn to cook thousands of different animals to delicious quality: spit roasted elks, dinosaur baked underneath hot rocks with banana leaves, sea serpent kabobs with fresh grilled seaweed.
>>28096339>elves who can't consume glutenI truly am of a superior race.
The stereotype that elves eat nothing but salad, fruit, and bread is false. However, polite elven society holds a serious taboo against eating any meat that you or a member of your household did not hunt, kill, and prepare; hence elves in foreign lands tend to appear to be strict vegetarians (adventurers tend to be an exception to this rule, as they are to so many others). Popular elven meat dishes include wild boar ribs rubbed with dried herbs, and small game fowl basted with butter.By a similar token, while the orcish lust for red meat is barely exaggerated by stereotype, the average orc's diet is surprisingly varied. Local grains and eggs form breakfast, while the roast meat at dinner is accompanied by vegetables roasted in the drippings and hearty black bread. Seasoning tends to be limited to what a warrior has plundered himself, or what his chief has seen fit to gift to him for any noteworthy feats or services to the tribe (salt in particular tends to be given as a gift to those warriors who have distinguished themselves).
>>28097178dungeon cheese is best worst type of cheese.
>>28097565>what his chief has seen fit to gift to him for any noteworthy feats or services to the tribeA gift of a pepper rub is considered to be an act of bestowing highest honors. It is customary to give such when adopting a son or blood brother into one's family.
>OwlbearVery Gamey, strong smelling, red-meat that's rather tough, sweet, as well as being quite greasy. Owlbear is best eaten almost as soon as it's killed and harvested or dried as the smell will permeate any other foods and the meat is rife with parasites. The meat makes fine steaks, bacon, sausages, but it excels in stews and soups a long side apples, onions, carrots, celery and cabbage. Owlbear stew with Walnut Bread is a very common dish amongst Fey folk and other forest dwellers in the autumn.>ChimeraBoth red and white meat can be harvested, though all of it has the same mix of bitter, sweet, sour and gamey flavor- has a very "chemical" after taste. Chimera is one of the most difficult beasts to cook as it stinks as much as goat and it's as greasy and tough as lion.. ..the tail however can be easily cut off, seasoned, stuffed with lemons or vegetables and roasted as any other reptile. The legs, paws, and ribs however are salvageable and amazing barbecued. Chimera fat is often kept by those who actually enjoy the creatures "alchemical" aftertaste. >UnicornAbsolutely Delicious: savory, thick, slabs of marbled beautiful meat. Almost never hunted successfully, but when it is, it's quite a joyous occasion as many are surprised by how delicious this animal's meat is. If the Unicorn itself isn't just gutted, skewered through a stick, and roasted on spot with an apple the meat makes amazing steaks, ground unicorn "beef", meat balls, sausages, and Ribs. Fey lords often flaunt their wealth by having roasted Unicorn and their generosity by donating the bones to soup kitchens during the holidays.

>>28097928>ManticoreGreasy, Gamey, a very sweet yet bitter meat- with exception to the tail and wings. Manticore meat is exceptional sweet and the flavor is not for everyone, but it makes excellent Manticore chops, bacon, and fries up exceptionally in it's own fat. The Wings can be dried or deep fried for a tasty treat and the Tail can be either boiled and cracked open to be eaten like an insect with butter or deep fried and served in stews or curries. >SlimeInedible until salted. Upon being salted it turns into an antacid. >Sea SerpentEnormous heaps of red meat with a fishy sort of reptilian flavor- very similar to snake or poultry. Sea serpent is filleted, after which the slabs of it's meat can be either dried, salted, smoked, or roasted as is with fresh shellfish or rice on the side. Sea serpent is often hunted and cooked by Giants: spit roasted on sticks with octopus or sea weed and just as easily grilled with Mastodon Butter. The beast is also excellent deep dried and served with fries and lemon. >FlumphMeat has a Rubbery texture with a muddy sort of salty flavor. This creature is best dried or roasted and kept as a crunchy snack. It's not entirely well received otherwise unless heavily seasoned due to it's slimy water-filled body. Flumphs however make EXCELLENT chowders with the addition of mushrooms and Aardvark Cream. >TriceratopsThick, lusterous, well-marbled, Leaf and Grass fed, juicy slightly gamey red meat. Triceratops can be served and prepared more like Beef or any other hooved animal: gutted and roasted on the spot, the ribs harvested and lathered with sauce, even their feet are "alright" when pickled. Giants and Savage Humans however SWEAR by Triceratops Meat loaf with a tomato sauce gravy.>>28097961>ShardmindsNot entirely inedible. Creature's "crystals" must be grounded up into a fine powder before consumption by organic beings. This powder can be used as a mineral supplement and added by the teaspoons into water.
We should make a PDF of this stuff.
Some info on cuisine in Eberron.Aundairian cuisine features a cacophony of ingredients that their classically trained chefs turn into a symphony of taste and texture. Aundairian meals consist of small portions presented in elegant fashion, each plate a beauty to behold and a wonder to savor. Sauces play a heavy role in any recipe, and the cuisine of this nation is considered to be exquisitely rich and suitable for special occasions. Pan-seared rabbit with an Aundairian wood-nut sauce, gold pheasant stuffed with sparkle mushrooms and rice, and dragon salmon in butter and dark wine sauce are particular favorites that have begun appearing in House Ghallanda inns throughout the Five Nations.This region also has a reputation for its premier vineyards, and the wines of Aundair are considered among the finest in all of Khorvaire. Some of the best recent vintages now being traded in markets across the land include fireburst wine from the vineyards of Arcanix, dark Orla-un wine known for its fruity sweetness, and Windshire rainbow wine, a type of mursi (red wine) that changes color and flavor as one consumes a glass.Finally, Aundairian pastries and sweets reveal a level of artistic and culinary sophistication unmatched throughout the Five Nations. From tarts to cremfels (thin, fruit-and-cream-fi lled pancakes), the desserts that originated in this region combine elegance with artistry that reveals at least a portion of the Aundairian spirit.
>>28098222Brelish cooking utilizes meats, vegetables, and hearty sauces to create filling and comforting meals. Northern Brelish cuisine tends to be simpler fare, with a sweet and savory fl avor. This is the food of farmers, designed to satisfy even the most ravenous appetites before and after a day of work in the fields. Here one can find beef boranel, a favorite of the king, that features a bread and mushroom stuffi ng roasted inside a full side of beef. Other hearty meals from the northern and central regions of Breland include farmer’s stew, thrice-poached eggs and sizzling pheasant, and kettle fried spider and redeye berries.Southern Brelish cooking is more adventurous, utilizing the spices and vegetables that grow in the more tropical clime. Food with a lot of heat dominates the menu, as do meals influenced by the diverse population of Sharn and then transported into the rest of the countryside. Traditional southern Brelish cooking is spicy and fl avorful, and often too hot for those used to simpler fare. Fire-wrapped golden fish, spiced pork and orange peppers, and hot-spiced chicken in panya leaves are considered high cuisine in the best inns and restaurants throughout Breland.Sharn fusion, meanwhile, is a culinary experiment in combining traditional Brelish cooking with the exotic cuisine of the diverse people that regularly pass through or settle in the City of Towers. Taking ingredients and cooking styles from all over Khorvaire, the master chefs of Sharn combine these exotic dishes with their native presentation to make a totally new form of cuisine. Bold and exciting, Sharn fusion isn’t for everyone. But for those willing to try something new and a little different, this exotic culinary experience is worth the effort and expense (Sharn fusion tends to cost more than a traditional Brelish meal).

>>28098071When the frost hordes of the northern Ice Plains began their campaign of pillage and destruction, it brought an unexpected culinary marvel. Encountering numerous slimes in the verdant valleys they conquer, the horde's chefs quickly used it to create a wide variety of recipes, from slime jam to fermented slime beverages. the most famous recipe however was frozen slime yogurt, made accidentally when warriors returning home found their slime juiceskins frozen.
>>28098236Karrnathi cuisine tends to be as heavy and complex as its architecture, with filling, multilayered casseroles one of the mainstays of the typical family meal. Karrns consider sausage- and cheesemaking to be art forms, and all kinds and varieties of these foods can be found throughout the land. Because of the harsh winters, stews and soups are a staple of Karrnathi cooking, and every hearth has a pot of something simmering over the fire throughout the long winter season.Brewing, another popular Karrnathi pastime, has created some of the most flavorful and potent beers and ales in the Five Nations, and kegs of Karrnathi brews find their way to markets across the continent. Baking has also developed into a staple of Karrnathi culinary art, and all kinds of pies and breads come out of the rich-smelling ovens throughout the land. One particularly popular loaf, called vedbread, combines crusty bread with the flavorfully sharp ved cheese. This is enjoyed warm as it emerges from the oven, or slathered with onion butter.

>>28098262While the heart and soul concentrates on the Silver Flame, the collective stomach of Thrane looks to the country’s unique cuisine for a different kind of religious experience. Many fi nd that secular life in Thrane is stifl ed by the theocracy, but few who come to the country fi nd the food to be disappointing. “It is like a breath of fire in the cold of a dark winter’s night,” said Princess Wroya of Breland during a diplomatic visit to Thrane, after partaking in the Feast of the Silver Flame. Utilizing thrakel spices cooked in thick sauces, Thrane cuisine tends to be heavy, fi lling, hot, and delicious. Thrakel-seared beef in red sauce, three-thrakel fish stew, and the traditional silvered vegetable skewers are particular favorites in Thrane and beyond.The people of Thrane also enjoy their desserts, but here they take a different tack. To counter the spicy nature of the main meal, Thrane desserts tend to be sweet and served cold. Beesh-berry sorbet on top of silverfruit pie is considered the best of many tempting desserts.
>>28098279Food holds a special place in Adaran life. It is a requirement for life, but it is also a mode of expression, a blessing from the spirit world, and an experience. An Adaran avoids cooking and eating when he is angry or grieving, lest his emotions taint the meal.Food is usually baked in or roasted on a clay oven built in the house, though broiling over an open fire is a common alternative. Adarans avoid using utensils. They use their hands, sometimes protected by leaves, to pick up food, intending to involve all five senses in eating.Adarans like spice. The fragrant herbs used in cooking provide taste, and many also aid digestion and fortify the body. Foreigners can find Adaran food too spicy, and Adarans often find foreign food bland.A wide variety of comestibles can be found on the Adaran table, from broad, woody cavern fungi to the meat of mountain sheep, from fleshy fruits to the milk of oxen and goats—along with yogurt and cheeses from this milk. Some Adarans refrain from eating meat, showing their respect for the lives of all creatures.Monasteries are often more limited in fare, due to the ruggedness of the land around them. Still, the ascetics appreciate food as a manifestation of life.
>>28098295The people of Rhiavhaar, Pyrine, and Ohr Kaluun eat fish. Those of Dor Maleer are hunters by tradition. Few other Riedrans eat meat, and many consider the practice barbaric.The mainstay of the Riedran diet is the pomow plant. This fruit was developed by the Bountiful Horn during the first few centuries of the Riedran unification. Its origin remains a mystery, but common belief is that it involved metacreation techniques and wild zones bound to Lammania. Pomow is a hardy crop that can grow in a range of climates, and every part of the plant has a use. The meat, root, and seeds can all be eaten, and are remarkably high in protein; the core is filled with juice; the bushy fibers around the stalk can be worked into thread, much like cotton; and strips of the tough rind are sharp enough to shave with. A pomow is a dark purple spheroid, ranging from one foot to two feet across. Pomow plants are remarkably fecund, and a stalk begins growing new fruit as soon as the sphere is plucked. Riedrans use a wide range of spices to add flavor and variety to their common meal of pomow gruel. They abstain from any sort of intoxicants.

>>28098320Food in Syrkarn is plentiful, well spiced, and served with copious amounts of ustah—a potent liquor brewed from honey and wild berries, reportedly from an ancient ogre recipe. The demands of rural life limit the choices available to the Syrk palate, with meat, fruits, and vegetables all typically dried for storage and transport. However, Syrks treat cookingwith the same reverence as their other arts, and need no excuse for a feast.The Tundra is not the place for cultured cuisine, but in terms of resourcefulness and ingenuity, Tashanans must be admired. In coastal and lake areas, the diet consists primarily of fish, waterfowl, and sea mammals, with some varieties of harvested seaweed. Inland, meat is provided by the vast herds of caribou, supplemented by fox, bear, and the occasional mammoth in the far north. Many tribes also harvest various types of lichen and algae that cling to the glacial rocks of the plains. Tashanans are renowned for finding utility in every possible part of the kill—examples are foxsnout soup and the infamous Chuniigi blubbercake. Some larger southern tribes employ a limited system of agriculture for winter grains.

>>28098028>YetiHuman-tasting sort of sweet pork textured red meat. Yeti smells quite delicious when cooking, but the sweet flavor can be a little off putting to some individuals. The best meat is on the Forearms and Legs- the hands, ribs, and everything else is usually avoided due to it's similarity to humanoid anatomy. Yeti is best served roasted or barbecued with a good sauce- it's often boiled as an emergency food though in Harsh cold environments. >ChuulVery buttery, fluffy, delicious shellfish meat- the Tentacles are rubbery and chewy though. They best meat is in the claws and legs and are best served boiled up and with butter. The shell itself can be used as a bowl and with the meat still inside: garlic, vegetables, and oranges or apples may be thrown in to cook up a delicious stew. The tentacles are delicious deep fried- this creature is a favorite amongst those who deal with elderitch horrors. >HellhoundVERY "fragrant", flavorful, greasy, spicy, fatty sort of Red meat. Hellhound is often only eaten by Warlocks and Adventurous Orcs, the meat though is quite delicious when well prepared. A good warlock will tell you nothing beats braized ginger Hellhound with peppers. The Ribs though are particularly delicious sopped in sauce and barbecued slowly- the meat itself is can be 'quite' spicy though. The Fat makes an excellent flavor enhancer. >PhoenixSpicy, Gamey, extremely flavorful with no real odor, a very nice white meat. Phoenix is best when the entire bird is put out, stuffed with bread crumbs and then ironically enough, baked again. The meat is extremely tender once it's been cooked and is best prepared with methods that best compliment it's very signature already barbecued flavor. Phoenix due to it's rarity is not an entirely common dish and more often than not is only usually used to make simply AMAZING turduken style feasts.

>Dire animals are indeed dire. While their furs and claws or whatever else you can harvest off of them may be useful, the actual meat on the animal itself is tough and when consumed en masse, could make the eater sick. However, in Orc and Goblin culture, those who can survive a meal of it, digest it, and pass it are deemed as stronger, and are more attractive mates. They hunt the animal (Orcs hunting larger game, like dire bears and goblins smaller, such as dire rats) and then cook and consume the meat themselves.
>>28096339>best curriesShit, now i want to visit the minotaur district for some fish curry
>>28095823>lizardfolk animal cafeFor some reason that sounds adorable. And terrifying.Terriforable?
>>28099989just settle for "terrifying and adorable", don't just kludge words together like you're on reddit or tvtropes
>>28100011But anon, I envy the germans for their ability to just cludge words together.On another note- does anyone know what happens to meat from an animal if you didn't bleed it? This might be directly relevant to different styles of cooking.
HOW HAS RUTABAGA NOT BEEN MENTIONED IN THIS THREADYOU PIECES OF HUMAN SHIT, READ THIS DELIGHTFUL LITTLE COMIC RIGHT NOWhttp://rutabagacomic.com/:)
>>28097153If she still has the hair-snakes, she can still see without the eyes on her face. She just can't turn people to stone anymore.That said, that's fucking hilarious.
Shrink people and swallow them like you're chugging gold fish at a frat party.
>>28100033Not much. It's not like meat is just soaked in blood. It's all little capillaries and shit. It might be a little juicier. Mostly you bleed a carcass because the blood's coming out one way or another and it's cleaner to to it all at once.
>>28100169Hmm. Is there any way to seal the blood in?Or is that the reason there are so many blood pies and junk, because it just refuses to stay?
>>28100262Not that I know of. I guess with magic and shit you could do it. But then you wouldn't have blood sausages and all the crazy blood food people make.
>>28100296I was hoping there was some fancy effect that could be done by cooking meat with blood still in it. Like how if you cook it in a dry environment with fat, it becomes crispy and golden.
>>28100320Yeah, but why would you want to do that? It'd be like a raisin bagel, but with meat and blood clot instead of bread and raisin.
When I started reading this thread, I suspected a magical realm of vore, fattening, or worse.When I finished reading this thread, I'm now really hungry.The last "interesting" meat I cooked was pheasant. I left it a few days too late and it was rotten and smelt awful when I came to cook it, but I just told myself "it's okay, it's game. It's supposed to smell weird". After roasting it on a bed of vegetables, stuffing it with butter and slathering with goosefat to keep it moist, it came out dry as a bone and smelling/tasting just as bad as before. What''s worse, it's rotten juices had gotten all over the vegetables so they were a write-off as well. What I did have of my meal was nice though: roast potatoes made with goosefat, Yorkshire pudding, and garlic and herb stuffing. It's a crying shame; I'm most annoyed about the meat being dry as I can roast a chicken to perfection so it's juicy and tender.
>>28100169>>28100262You bleed meat to make it last longer.
>>28100358>why would you want to do thatIf a race enjoys the taste of clotted blood, and thinks it compliments meat... then for that reason.
>>28100358>>28100320>>28100262>>28100625Vampires.He's trying to make something nice for a vampire.
>>28100699well, vampires and any race that happens to like blood.Including my homebrewed giant sentient spiders.
>>28095823Tavern food? Tavern food.'Stew', for the most part. It has meat in it, and potatoes, and is served with dumplings and bread. It's cheap, it's filling, and, most importantly, it's hot. You're fine as long as you don't ask what the meat is.If you're feeling flush, maybe things went your way at the dog tracks, or you just got your first paycheck in the new gig, you order the omelette. The barkeep keeps chickens out the back, along with a few animals. Milk, eggs, and some actual named meats that are too good for the stew, but not enough for a proper cut of meat. It's served with potatoes that've been sliced thin and fried to hell and back. Plus, the barmaid (the barkeep's daughter) tends to lean down low over the table to make sure it doesn't slide while she's serving it.For adventurers, if you flash a little gold, he'll go delve in the icehouse and turn up some gammon. Salted, smoked lumps of pig. Fried with a little exotic produce, tastes delicious, especially with an egg on top. Customary to over-order a bit, and curry some goodwill with the regulars, as the leftover meats go into the 'stew', or omelettes.And they make the BEST trail rations. Basically the 'stew', with extra dripping from the roast beasts they do on holy days, poured into flatbread from the bakery across the road, and left to soak the juices up and congeal. Cold, but full of nutritious calories.
>>28101246Wasn't there a thread a while ago about stew being one of the best foods for adventurers?
>>28101408Yeah. I think someone challenged me when I posted that, and I went off on a writefag rant at them about it.There's meat IN it, but it's not exactly a meat stew, y'know? Cheap cuts of meat, thrown in whole and stewed until the meat falls off the bone. Then the bones fished out, cracked to get at the marrow, and chucked back in. Lumps of fat and gristle, vegetables stewed to the point of having nearly no goodness, but it's not a big thing. You eat the sauce as well; just soak it up with bread.They also sell the bread-and-sauce as a side dish, or a cheaper option for anyone who's a bit low on funds. Can't have your customers starve to death.

Gnomes>Gnome are inventive and have an affinity for magic, traits that are both apparent when dining on gnome cuisine. It is not uncommon for a traditional gnomish dish to include dinner and a show especially if dinner is the show. Food that serves itself, plays sweet music or dances about is all part of the traditional meal. Gnomes highly value spells and spices, applying both with great enthusiasm. As such gnome food can be overbearing to the uninitiated.

Could we archive this thread?
This was rather well done in Dragon's Crown. After certain levels there's a mini game where you get to eat most of the monsters you encountered in the previous levels for health and stat bonuses.You get to cook pretty much all the interesting stuff like, Kraken Soup, Roasted medusa snakes, and my favorite, Sauteed Demon heart.
>>28103273The thread content is currently in the process of being uploaded to a 1d4chan wiki article for future reference. To contribute, feel free to suggest an article name or provide more food-related fluff.
Although the general knowledge is that all humanoid taste like chicken a connoisseur of cannibalism will tell you that there are definitely differences between them.They might even claim to prove it in a blind taste test provided that you provide the samples.HUMANS>Humans are the most watery of the races, their meat tends to be juicy but devoid of strong taste compared to the others. The best recipes with human in them make use of the bone marrow and organs, it is recommended to let them simmer for a long time to bring out what little taste they have. Human brains and nerve centres can cause madness and should be discardedDWARVES>Dwarven meat exists out of multiple layers of muscle and when cooked the meat tends to fall apart, when dried and salted dwarven meat lasts far longer than other humanoid meat and most mainstream foodstuffs too. Tastewise it's very white and soft meat but it has a strong bitter aftertaste. Dwarven meat on the bone with some spices would not look or taste out of place in a royal feast (provided that it's unrecognizable as such). Sugary additions are not unusual to this at all.ELVES>Elves are wire-y with not much meat on them, and barely any fat. The meat is slimy, easy to swallow and quickly digested. Ogre women sometimes joke that elven meat comes out the same as it came in. The taste can only be brought out by roasting them meat rather than cooking it and this gives it it's signature fishy smell, the structure is the same as that of other primates but the taste is undeniably that of fresh water fish. Elven fat is by far the best fat in all creation to use in the butter making process, it has lower cholesterol.
>>28096339Centaurs being into baking makes no sense.
>>28103320GOBLINS>Even among Ogres goblin meat is a bit of a taboo, not because they have much respect for the creatures but because it's very unhealthy. Besides your average goblin having an unhygienic lifestyle and being quite disease infested their tiny bodies are filled with disproportionate amounts of humours. Consuming goblin meat leads to giddiness, poor risk assessment and heavy mood swinging, this also gives goblin meat it's addictive effects. Overly hedonistic pleasure cults can serve goblin brain in a bowl and believe themselves to have fallen in a spiritual trance, this ensures the loyalty of the members because the withdrawal symptoms feel very much like the wrath of a dark god. Aside from all this goblin meat is very gamey and good with mushrooms.
The article formatting proceeds on track. ETA 20min. The article name is currently Cuisine.> Fuck you guys who feel the need to capitalize the first letters of regular nouns in the middle of sentences. The sentence "getting Nostalgic for the taste of Dirt" looks strange.

>>28103621Butter is made from cream, not from the fat deposits in a cow's body.
>>28103677alright, can't say I'm not enjoying making this stuff up.HALFLINGS>Halflings have a tendency to be pudgy, although this is caused by cultural eating habits rather than genetics. Halfling meat is darker than that of the other races and tastes a bit more like game and wilder animals. Minced halfling is an overpowering taste in a pasta sauce, a bit to strong and overpowering according to some. There are no objections to think of about very thin slices of halfling meat on white bread though, aside from the obvious ones.ORCS>Orcs are like elves, only bigger and denser, the taste when baked resembles that of sea fish and can serve as a passable substitute for tuna in a salad to the untrained tongue. Of course it is much heavier than that and many people have admitted to preferring the tasteless slimy soup preparation, as eating an entire orc is an herculean task for any less than twelve people.GNOMES>Gnomes are frail little creatures with little to them, when roasted they tend to crisp up as the water disappears from their body and when cooked in a soup they taste like watered down halfling, if you have the technique though, they can be the component to unique spice, the fey blue. It grants a metallic magic-like spiciness, a bit like putting your tongue on a battery.Of course humanoids need to be skinned and carefully butchered before anything other than straight up spit-roasting can be done, just like any other animal.
>>28104011both, egg is used to. It's not just cream whipped until it's as thick as butter there's this whole emulation process going on.
>>28104201No. You are wrong. Butter is cream. The end.You may be thinking of mayonnaise, which is emulsified oil and eggs (mostly).

Here's a fucking awesome site about food history.http://foodtimeline.org/
I-I would anonBut I am poorAnd cannot afford treats
Original, OP here.Just got up. Drinking Tea.Come back to see this thread not only still alive, but you guys went and archived my work and now I'm just all a squirming around in embarassement.You guys need to know anything else about cooking anything or anyone else?Maybe a Races cuisine or something?
God damnit this thread makes me salivate.Hell, I'd be up for a gamer fuel thread.I'm gaming wednesday too, so some delicious home-made food would be a nice contrast to the usual>>28105988Tea's usually decent if I can dose it with sugar. Starting to like Green tea.Ya got any tips for making it palatable without getting diabeetus?
>>28106015>Ya got any tips for making it palatable without getting diabeetus?I'm a big fan of black teas: English breakfast and English afternoon are usually my standards. Both me and my father put unpasterized honey in our tea: it's much healthier and it's just as sweet.DO NOT BUY PASTEURIZED HONEY. Pasteurization "sanitizes" honey and allows them to add in buffers such as corn syrup and artificial flavoring that they normally wouldn't have been allowed to before. Honey into itself is completely sterile and will never go bad: it doesn't need to be pasteurized.
>>28106063Awesome! Thanks, gourmanon, I'll try that.
>>28102739Screw you, Anon! I will make it happen! It wouldn't even require very much cooking; I mean look at Toriko. They'll occasionally snack on something mid-quest, but the big meals were for after they'd beaten the beast of the week....Screw it. You know what? I am re-watching that entire anime while I start Gourmet Quest! Screw the lot of you; I am going to make ALL OF /TG/ HUNGRY!
>>28097565>you or a member of your household>adventurers tend to be an exception to this rule>implying an adventuring group isn't a household in its own right.
>>28106063>Dwarven HoneySurface Dwarves were made famous when they invented the "segmented" bee box: a multiple layered bee hive that could have it's shelves replaced and remove so that the main hive could be left unharmed and the excess honey could be harvested. This invention was inspired by another Dwarven method of honey collection: where in a cylindrical honey pot shaped funnel hive is created from clay and then smoked when the honey is to be collected. The pot is then tipped slightly and the honey allowed to "gently" flow out. Dwarves however are most famous for their MEAD, so delicious, warm, and sweet and with just a hint of a nutty flavor. Surface Dwarven children are often raised on Mead. >Bee womenBee women are beautiful, bipedal, bee based animal persons: they have shapely thick thighs, large rumps, and equally large "chests" that accentuate their very fluffy orange to yellow maned collars. Bee women are polite, courteous, love to bake, and above all: QUITE industrious when it comes to honey. The main pollinators of some particularly intimidating flowers and plants, Bee women strive to create the best honey for themselves and for the trade of goods and services with non-animal persons. Bee women are an all female species and often the workers go into town with huge pots of honey to "woo" husbands with their "wealth". >Dire BeesIf it weren't for Dire bees the savage dire wilds would quickly wither away into nothing, dire animals would go extinct, and Giants a long with them. Dire bees are the main pollinators of many species of Dire plant: even the carnivorous ones. Dire bee honey is incredibly sweet, thick, nourishing, and is a favorite addition to any Giants baking- however Dire Bee's are notoriously sting happy and with their foot long stingers the collecting of this honey can be "quite" dangerous.. but worth it.
>>28106560>Dungeon Honey<Dungeon honey is seen as a mixed blessing. This honey is produced by a species of Bumblebee known as "dungioneer's bumblebee" or "dungeon bumblebees". They are an often passive and gentile rat sized bee whom quietly makes a exercise ball sized hive in the walls of dungeons, buzzing around and pollinating the flowers both inside and outside their dungeon. Their honey has a slight "nutty" taste to it, but is otherwise a good source of sugar or sweetener in a dungeon. The Bees however can bee seen as a bit of a horrifying menace though to everyone involved as with their inch long stingers and their ability to sting more than once: an agitated dungeon beehive can be quite horrifying.
>>28106063Keep in mind though: Non-pasturized honey can fuck you over if you have bad pollen allergies, depending on where the honey was made.
>>28099669>>28099697>>28099832Ilithid cookery revolves around shellfish and other sea foods, although they do collect recipes of other races and significant numbers of slaves have tales of being sat down by their master one day and told to recall all the recipes they could.While ilithids do also consume nervous tissue, that is usually in a more suplementary usage, rather than the ravenous lust for gray matter and nothing else that most people think ilithids possess. The exceptions are the outcasts that most adventurers come across, and since almost no-one bar adventurers ever returns from an encounter with an ilithid, the myth of the cranium-cracking squid persists.
>>28105988Dwarven cuisine, maybe?I want to know how they make so many delicious masterful roasts from such strange ingredients, such as flour, sugar, whale meat, and cat tallow.
>>28100033It depends upon whether you're going to eat the meat right away (cooking optional) or whether you're keeping it for later. If you're eating it right away, nothing in particular. It might spit a bit more in a frying pan, but it's just meat, albeit unusually bloody.If you're keeping it for later or hanging the meat, that's another story entirely. Blood is a liquid, which means it's an extremely good medium for any external infection. There are stories of American Civil War soldiers sprinkling mule meat with gunpowder just to render it edible, because it had a foul smell and green streaks in it.>>28100262>Is there any way to seal the blood in?Why would you want to? Cut the meat up, drain any juices into a large pot or something, sear the meat quickly and add it to the pot with the juices, add veg and some more fluid and simmer for an hour. Boom, tasty stew. May need salt, but otherwise, it's good.
>>28106872>why would you want to?I thought something cool might happen.
>>28107198Okay. Have you ever seen British-style black pudding? All of that purple-blue-black in there is blood, mixed with oatmeal. That's what happens when you keep blood confined in the animal, too. The blood-vessels act as miniature sausage-casings, and you end up with a bunch of wierd-tasting shit throughout your meat.>AchaieraiDue to the large size of the bird, an achaierai roast is a weighty proposition (pun spotted and left in). The legs are usually cooked separately from the rest of the bird, as each in and of itself makes a good centrepiece for a meal. The main body is mostly composed of white meat, and while the organs should be removed before cooking, they make an excellent basis for any number of side dishes. The one organ that is never consumed is the smoke-sac. This organ is extremely toxic when consumed, although it is rumoured that slaves in service to aboleths buy and sell these dried in shady deals.>ArrowhawkBeing inherently flighted creatures, arrowhawks tend to be rather difficult to catch, but when this does occur, care should be taken to avoid killing (or getting killed by) the creature, as the eggs are not only nutritious but sell for large amounts to wizards wishing to acquire exotic familiars. They lack legs (a trait not uncommon to beings from the Plane of Air), which makes the options for cooking them (should the quarry be accidentally killed) rather more interesting than those for most creatures. The tails and necks should be removed from the bird, as they lack meat in significant quantities, but the rest of the body carries a sufficiently large amount of meat that an arrowhawk poultry farm is not an unreasonable suggestion, bar the obvious difficulties in catching and maintaining a sufficient breeding stock.
>>281060631)Honey can go bad if you let moisture and debris get into it. Even then it lasts a long time though.2)Not all processed honeys contain corn syrup or artificial flavorings. Dutch Gold, for example filters their honey (and they may heat treat it but I forget), but they add no additives.
>>28106709On the flip side, eating local raw honey can help build a resistance to many allergens.
>>28107880Very much this. Thanks to my grandfather's bees, I am now resistant to oilseed rape pollen. Since that's what the farmer who rented the hives from him was growing.
I want to learn more about the elemental plane of food
>>28107928>oilseed rape pollen>rape polleni didn't see that in bestiary 4
>>28107928Cool. I've never had that type before. How does it taste in comparison to other varietals? (And is there any chance he sells it? Depending on it's character, I'd like to try brewing with it.)
So can someone eloquent write up a delicious snack for monsters with this?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mellified_manPerhaps something that dragons have the necessary timespan to reap the rewards of this gruesome practice. It may also be used to feed their young to strengthen their bones (dragon bone is legendary strong in some settings).
>>28108059He doesn't sell it any more, on account of being dead, but his widow does. I'm unsure of the branding on it, though.As for taste comparison, I have no idea. I don't eat much honey, and what I DO eat is from said hives since it just doesn't go off.I'll look it up, though. Maybe I can find a labeled jar or something.Otherwise, I know they're Buckfast bees, kept in Wiltshire in the UK. Shouldn't be hard to find something similar, since he also dealt in importing queens to people around.
>>28108137>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mellified_manI'm actually rather intrigued.
>>28096657I've tried crocodile, and it tasted very weird and salty. Perhaps Hydra should innately taste the same? Water reptiles and all that.
>>28096657Hah, imagine if the witch slides into that soup. She'd be fucked!
>>28107969We had this whole thread once about a food-themed RPG with D&D classes refluffed in the Elemental Plane of Breakfast.It was glorious.

>>28108549Wait, you can have fantasy foods that are generic MREs?
>>28098246Saved this from /tg/ a million years ago:>Some types of Drow Foods found in the Underdark>There is a dish which closely resembling Haggis. It consists of Rothe stomach, soaked in salt water for a minimum of 12 hours and then stuffed with a mixture of rothe liver & heart meat, suet and diced mushrooms. It is then baked and served in the form of thick slices. The drow serve this dish either highly spiced or with a tangy sauce. >Rothe meat would also be used to make sausages & jerky (for travel rations). Rothe blood would be collected as a base for sauces, or to make puddings >Rothe hooves could be boiled down to create gelatine >In addition to the food value, the drow would likely have slaves collect rothe dung to fuel cooking fires. >General staples of the drow diet include: >mushroom/fungus flour: used to make pastry and noodles >mushroom-based tofu: a meat-substitute that is a staple of "middle-class" drow. >lizard eggs >rats: usually eaten only by the lower class, this is beneath the dignity of the wealthy and noble houses. >snails >lichen >fish: grown in ponds in or near the drow cities, or netted from underground rivers. >mollusks >insects: particularly cave crickets. Usually served fried with a spicy mushroom sauce, or carmelized as a dessert (along the lines of honey roast peanuts) >Subterranean Puffer fish: a dangerous delicacy enjoyed by the drow. If prepared incorrectly it can prove fatal (this is simply a variation of the Japanese dish)
>>28111186And booze:>Mushroom Wine>An Underdark drink fermented from mushrooms. It has a good deal of sugar added to it and tastes sweet, but may cause hallucinations...>Drow Azure Wine>The favored drink of the Drow and a main export from their lands. This glowing blue drink is said to cause hallucinations and be quite addictive, leading many to ask what is in it.>Spiderblood>A mushroom wine that contains the venom from poisonous spiders. It is crafted by the drow. Though its taste is remarkable, it can also be deadly.(alt descrip)>Drow Spiderblood Wine- >A specialty drow wine with a strong bite, and a hint of spider venom. Alcohol isn't the only thing you have to worry about when drinking it... but it does taste good.>Deep Abyssal Ale>This is one of the most common drinks in drow taverns. A very strong black ale that is said to absorb light. Many underfolk of evil descent claim it is a sinful beverage and thus all the better to drink.
>>28095823Nah, the elemental plane of food which implies "food" is an element, which is a neat idea in and of itself - cooks as "gastromancers" who get access to conjuration and transformation spells? has Hunger Spirits who make creatures compulsively eat.>>28097178>Mimic CheeseThe cheap restaurant owner's favorite delicacy, left to mature surrounded by another cheese will take on the flavour and texture of that cheese - though not the appearance.Many a restaurant has been shut down by the Merchants' Guild over reports of "blue veined" cheese that were merely Mimic Cheese with blue pieces of string mixed into it.>Beholder BrothAcrid tasting and nutritionally lacking, Drow matriarchs consider a broth made using the tears forced from all the eyes of a captured beholder to be a supreme delicacy, to the point where many a diplomatic mission to the underdark has ended in tragedy as the visiting dignitaries mistook the serving of Beholder's Broth for an attempt to poison them, rather than the compliment that it was intended to be.>Troll JuiceThe trading caravan's sustenance of last resort, Troll Juice is the blood produced by a magically inhibited troll hip bone whose marrow will continuously produce blood unless stored in a special container filled with specially tuned elemental fire.Said to possess a smoky bouquet and a surprisingly gentle hint of almonds under the not at all surprising overpowering taste of sweat and rotting bonemeal.
>>28108498Ring of fire resistance or magical fire immunity.
Undead >Despite the predictable problems with consumption of the undead, the act is still widely practiced in dangerous starvation situations, as well as among other undead themselves.Undead meat general>The principle problems with rancid meat, of either beast of humanoid, is due to both the bacterial and resulting toxins that exist within the meat. Best preparation can avoid most bacterial/viral/parasitic issues, however the toxins that the meat becomes imbued with is difficult to remove. Under the best situation for consumption of the undead, on should aim to carve out the center portion of a solid piece of meat that exist distal from any form of visceral body cavity.Undead meat for human consumption> Throughout a long or extensive journey one faces the risk of famine and resource depletion, during which time undead meat may be a needed fall back. Cooking and preparing meat is a under the general rule "if you think its ready, cook it longer". Pressure cooking, smoking into jerky, canning, and alcohol infusion can all ensure a less biologically diverse meal, however there will be a constant risk of botulism. Bone marrow>Depending on the age of the bone acquired one may find a rich supply of yellow or red marrow. As bones tend to be more vague of their origin there exists a large market for undead bones for retail sale.Taste> Its about what you would expect, however some like to describe artificially reanimated (through direct magical effect) meat as a bubbly sparky taste. Though if consumed to quickly one may find it still twitching throughout the digestive system.
Roasted disenchanter trunk. Deep-fried displacer beast tentacles. Beholder eye jelly. Flail snail escargot.Probably not adherer pudding, though. Blech.

>>28117870>Assassin VineWhile the obvious problems exist with harvesting the fruit of wild assassin vines, certain subterranean races have succeeded in domesticating, selectively breeding and farming these odd plants, primarily through careful use of perfumes. The benefit are two-fold: a steady supply of assassin wine and a crop that defends itself. For that reason, most farmers of assassin vines also grow other crops, and use the vines, with warning signs, as hedges and field boundaries.>FormiansFormian "culture" is rather lacking, having, as they do, a hive mind, but they farm a remarkably large number of fungi as well as rat-sized aphids, which typically feed on plant roots. These aphids are "milked" every day for honeydew, some of which is fermented for sale to other subterranean species - honeydew mead is a common tavern brew in drow settlements near formian colonies. However, the honeydew itself keeps for immense lengths of time, as it is almost entirely sugar, and dew sugar is another trade-product of formian colonies.>Shrieker and Violet FungusThe shrieker is, of course, a dangerous fungus to gather, as it commonly grows in company with the much more dangerous violet fungus. Nonetheless, an enterprising alchemist can gather both, violet fungi for their toxin and shriekers for the curious extract that can be pressed from their caps. This tonic is extremely useful for injuries to the lungs, throat and mouth. The stems, in the meantime, are usually used as filling in stews, being fleshy and absorbent.
>>28116676>beholder eye jellyEeeww, everybody knows only the floppily doppily bits of the beholder eye are good eating.
What about different kinds of sausage?Blutwurst made with dragon intestines and meat, plus whatever other animals you can find, seems like it'd happen from time to time as a celebration of said dragon being slain, and the best part is that it'd be enough to feed the whole village for a while.

Now I want to have a recurring Orc chef NPC in my next campaign.
You gotta imagine Kobold tastes good, dragons probably bred them that way
>>28095823Plebs. The lot of you.>Take a foray into the Deep, steal one of Cthulhu's tentacles, trek to Japan, and have a 70 year old Japanese woman make the most awe inspiring sashimi you could ever imagine using the finest utensils. >Then, wash it down with sake infused with Dagon's sweet and sour genital juice.I've done this 5 times now. Regrettably, the hallucinations aren't as strong any more, and I think Cthulhu is getting pissed with me chipping off his tentacles.

Note: If you're serving it up to a rival the still-beating heart of their lover makes for an amusing meal - Or you may consider garnishing with a few leaves of Lloth's Passion. Two leaves to humiliate them with public fornication, four to make them fornicate till they die.

>>28103476> The reason goblin meat is so unhealthy is because virtually every part of the body functions like a liver in some way. If a goblin is kept in captivity and force-fed, a type of "goblin gras" can be made from it whole. Goblin tribes often consume their fattest kin in difficult times.
So did the guy who put the stuff on 1d4chan come through? Where is it?

>>28124608>dragon genital juiceIs that just sexual fluids or is it like ball sweat or whatever the female equivalent is?
>>28132916So its a combination off all things mentioned or are you being cheeky with me?
>>28132936NoJust kidding I have no idea. I would assume ball sweat or the female equivalent
>>28132976Yeah but assumptions make an ass out of me and you.
>Gelatinous cubesThe highly acidic nature of gelatinous cubes means that it requires heavy preparation and magical treatment to make it edible. But once prepared, is used as a cheap preservative due to its antiseptic properties. Unfortunately, it leaves the food with a strong bitter aftertaste and can be extremely toxic if not prepared properly.Dwarves, in particular are fond of preservation of meats and other perishables in the thick jelly, due to the abundance of gelatinous cubes, their hearty stomachs and the difficulties associated with bringing large quantities of meat underground.The gelatinous cube is still very much alive and there are reports of people having been suffocated in their sleep by the de-acidified meat storage cubes. This has led to people storing the cubes in salt baths or locked cabinets.Variants such as the frost cube, which is used to store fruits and the stun jelly, which gives the food are numbing affect are in common use. There are reports of a Dwarven King using a conscious brain jelly to store his foods at a dinner party, as a display of his power.

As part of the mythology for my current game, there was a benevolent dictator necromancer that magically/genetically engineered ideal foods.>KornoaIt's basically a super grain. It grows in pods, similar to pomegranate (which makes it convenient to carry around for travelers). The seed pods naturally "bake" when laid out in the sun, and turn into what is basically larger kernals of popcorn over 20-30 minutes. One pod is enough food for one person for a day. It's beloved by travelers but considered bland by most. It's also really hard to season, so it's almost exclusively used as a cheap and very nutritious food stuff. The pods grow on cacti and fall off, and it's very easy to cultivate. Travelers are often caleld "Huskers" as a mild slur since they tend to leave a lot of plant husks wherever they travel and are always looking to buy more.>Purdu Large Insects (a couple hundred pounds) used as a meat source. They're basically made of protein, and actually taste pretty good Once past the outer shell they don't really have bones, and meat comes out in what is basically orbs of flesh. They eat rotting vegetable matter and waste in the forests, which the crap out as an even more effective fertilizer. They're asexual, and reproduce without mates. There are pods of eggs on their shoulders which eventually drop off and incubate in their waste/excrement, eventually hatching. The rule for hunting them is that you're not allowed to kill them until the pods have fallen off and the eggs have hatched, so that the population never dwindles. (Unfortunately, this has made the eggs a delicacy in certain parts of the world despite not tasting very good). Populations have pre-programmed magical limits to their population numbers so that they grow proportional to the size of the population. The meat comes out as fleshy bulbs. They're mild on their own, but they take to spices extremely well and are very fatty. There's others too, but I like those the most.
Tales from Thundar the Thunderer's adventure notes:>Damn elf. Won't eat any meat 'e dint shott hisself. Fine. Offers around the fruit bits he's got in 'is pack. By Odn's balls its delicious. I asks 'im wht it is. Elf says he picked the fruit off a dryad as a gift. I asked him what the 'ell 'e did to the dryad. Bastard said that a gentlmen don't kiss an' tell.>I owe the elf ten quid. He be me I couldn't eat as much meat as the orc could. Not bein' one to back don from a bet, specially one involving fod, I took 'im up. Bastard greenskin ate a whole bear worth a meat. THE ENIRE BEAR. Beargut sausage, bearfoot(hardehar) soup, and all the chops, strips and ground bits to be had. I barely managed to eat 40 ounces of elk steak. >I admit it, I mde a wee mistake. It was my turn to cook diner, so i opened up the 'ole bag 'o meatsa. And bits we save for stew and tossed som into the pot. It was crab. I know that crab sweet, so my stupidarse thinks i should get some sur in it to balance out. Whiskeys sour innit? So's i pours some of me private grog in the pot and stir it up. Stars to get real steamy, i figger all the actual booze has boiled off aye? Wrongo. I'd forgotten it was Iron grog mystic whiskey. Boilin it just boils out the non-alchohol bits. Melted some soft white cheese we ad, and i chopped up the meat and made a pesto out of it i spreads it on some biscuits we still had and passed the plate 'round. I did not know the orc had wanted to be a bard. I will not soon forget the sounds....

>Giant Lizards/SalamandersOften found in swamps and such, they're commonly found on the tables of most Mammalian creatures. For clear reasons, the more Reptilian creatures generally avoid it, treating it with the same wariness that we treat Dog or Cat meat. It's a White meat, often prepared similarly to Steak, no matter the cut.Insectoids: Generally avoided by Humans and Elves, many of the other races enjoy insectoids, treating them much like trail mix. There're of course the more popular insects. The best of the best can only be found in the dryer continents, A grub commonly found in the wood of trees. Large, Fat and brown with a white head, the Wood Grub has an almond flavour, and is best eaten tail first, minus the head when raw, or cooked in the coals of a fire.And yeah I'm totally basing those two of off my experience with Australian cuisine. Whichety grubs may look fuuuucken gross, but they aren't that bad. And Croc is really good if you can find a local seller. Same with snake.
