Worldbuilding -- FOOD

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingOF COURSE there must be interesting food in your world. Or disgusting -- but definitely memorable.

HeartMate had cocoa mousse and I got to continue that throughout the series -- beloved of FamCats, and probably the best line regarding it came from my friend armoire-man "Never eat anything bigger than your head." And, of course, mousse may be an exception.

In Lladrana, Guardian of Honor, I had sweetcheese. Someone wrote me for the recipe. I looked around the web for brie in puff pastry with brown sugar and didn't find the exact recipe, but at least pointed her in the right direction. That really amused me.

So, have you salivated during your reading? I have.

May you bring taste into your scenes today.

In some Mediterranean countries quark cheese, sprinkled with sugar or honey, is served as a dessert. Rather lovely too!
