[Scalvoris] Food & Drinks

Bruised Mashroot
Image
Discovered by Ice Caves Expedition. Developed by Kali'rial
Found: Scalvoris

Toxicity/Hazard: none

Appearance: Bruised Mashroots are a culinary delight, sought after in most respectable kitchens for their wonderful taste and the starchy filling properties. An altogether hearty vegetable coming in blue, black and even purple, reminiscent of bruises on the skin. These bulbous roots grow in cold dark soil, with little care actually required except an occasional watering. Once pulled and washed, the root itself can be cooked a variety of ways. Steaming, boiling, frying, baking and mashing. Their colours become more vibrant after cooking, which lends to some beautiful table creations from across Scalvoris. Perhaps the most enjoyed way is mashing, as this breaks the small cells of oil in the vegetable and intensifies the taste. People have described the flavour as sweet, yet still savoury, with a morish undertone of elderflower. This curious combination allows the Mashroots to be combined with a variety of different ingredients, herbs and spices. Due to the quick way the roots can fill you up, they are a fantastic staple in any travellers pack. A little goes a long way.

Properties: Very filling, very tasty.

Other Information:

Rarity: Uncommon in the wild, but easy for a good gardener to cultivate.

How To Use: Pretty much anyway that can be culinarily imagined, provided it is cooked. The raw root is slightly bitter and very hard to bite.

Side Effects: It will stain your hands, clothes, mouth - basically anything it comes into contact with. This staining can range from a light blue, to an intense violet and a deep black. This staining will fade off the body in a couple of trials. It will not come out of clothing. An avid tailor might find this of value.

Status: Legal.

Price: Currently not yet for sale. Will be for sale from Vhalar 717 ~ 3sn per bag of ten.

[Scalvoris] Food & Drinks

Popfruit
Image
Developed by Tio Silver
Found: Sweetvine Woods
Toxicity/Hazard: Ever so slightly acidic.
Appearance: Identical to a normal apple, save for a couple of tiny black dots scattered around its skin.
Properties: Popfruit look like large, juicy apples to the untrained eye, but this is only because Popfruits come from a mutation in a standard apple tree that causes carbon dioxide to be pumped into the fruits like a balloon until they're on the verge of bursting. When exposed to the slightest trauma, such as being bitten into, the explode with a loud popping noise.
Other Information: They also taste really bad.

Shoal Rum

Developed by Tio Silver
Type of Alcohol: Rum

Appearance: The rum itself a deep red colour, with a slightly tinge to it when seen in bright light. It is usually sold in black glass bottle with a skull and crossbones upon it.

Taste: Just like regular rum, though with a curt citrus-like snap to it and a rather unpleasantly sour aftertaste.

Price: 2sn per shot / 8sn per glass / 15gn per bottle.

Alcohol Potency: Like most rums it is fairly strong, more than strong enough to get completely wasted on very quickly if you drink more than three three glasses in short succession, however most people do not do this simply because as rums go it isn't particularly nice or cheap. Strangely enough it is normally drank for its health benefits, as Shoal rum is made with the juices of various citrus fruits such as lemons, and helps prevent scurvy in sailors during their time at sea.

Stink Cabbage
Image
Developed by Devin
Found: Stink Cabbage can be found all over Scalvoris. It isn’t particularly picky as to where it grows.
Toxicity/Hazard: None, apart from the smell.
Appearance: Stink Cabbage doesn’t look in any way special. It looks just like normal, green cabbage. It’s even the same size. The only difference is the smell, which means that someone who suffers from anosmia won’t be able to tell Stink Cabbage and normal cabbage apart.
Properties: Stink Cabbage has several properties. The first and best-known “property” is its smell. When Stink Cabbage is fresh, it smells like unwashed feet which is not a particularly pleasant smell. It gets worse when the leaves are dried though. It also has a second, much less well-known property though. The dried leaves can be used to make an ointment with antibiotic properties that is quite effective. Unfortunately, few herbalists in Scalvoris stock Stink Cabbage, and few doctors make the ointment them due to the pungent smell. Furthermore, Stink Cabbage is actually quite tasty – if you get over the smell.
Other Information: Due to the terrible smell of the dried leaves, some especially naughty children like to use them for pranks.

Snappy Turtle Soup

Developed by Balthazar Black
Image
Main Ingredient(s): Chef's Choice of Tiny Tucks, Treedles, Fat Bob, or Snatchers chopped up and put in a turtle bone broth. Add diced carrots and celery. Add potatoes and stink cabbage if you want to make it more like a stew.
Appearance: Snappy Turtle Soup looks very similar to your typical chicken noodle soup however it has a darker colored broth and a very different taste depending on the turtles used to make it.
Taste: The properly cooked combination of ingredients will yield a notably salty and savory taste that is not all that different than what someone would expect from a soup using bear meat.
Price: 1 WP standard, price may vary depending on chef's chosen additional ingredients.
Availability: Widely available across Scalvoris.
Any other details: The soup doesn't bite.

Azulin Fruit Salad

Developed by Ari'sora
Main Ingredient(s): Azulin blossoms, assorted fruit
Appearance: Azulin fruit salad looksa deceptively simple. It resembles normal fruit salads, but the presence of the Azulin blossoms give this salad some extra color.
Taste: It varies depending on the types of fruit used, but the delicate sweet aroma and flavor of the Azulin blossoms serves to untie the entire dish.
Price: Varies depending on the fruits that are used. 1-10 WP per salad if ordered as a salad/side dish, and double that if ordered as a main course.
Availability: Rare; only restaurants boasting of having a master or grandmaster chef will offer this dish as only a chef of that skill can make it.
Any other details: 1) Sugared Azulin petals top the salad as a garnish. Shredded petals are part of the salad just as the fruit is for added flavor. And a dressing made from roipo nectar and the petals of Azulin flowers completes the dish. The fruits that are part of the salad vary, but raw sunburst fruit, melons, citrus fruits, yanja fruit, morning savior (raw or heated so the chocolate flavor emerges), grapes, raw cocolimes, and berries are common. Peaches, plums, snekfruit, and apples less so, but they wouldn't be considered uncommon. Exotic fruits are rarely used, but they can be - this includes bluecherry berries (white, purple, and blue). 2) Due to the difficulties dealing with some of the ingredients, only a master chef or higher can make this dish.

Re: [Scalvoris] Food & Drinks

Spine Fish

Developed by Darius Baer.
Main Ingredient(s): Spine fish, any other ingredients the ship's cook can provide to mask the taste - usually a mixture of vegetables, herbs, and other freshly caught seafood.
Appearance: Spine Fish takes on many different appearances, depending on the skill of the chef and the other ingredients at his or her disposal. The cooking styles are equally varied - smoked, grilled, fried - but none are effective in making it taste desirable.
Taste: Spine Fish tastes bitter. Additionally, the bones that give the fish its name are sharp and can be choked on if they are not removed first. As such, Spine Fish is an unpopular meal, but due to the ease with which they are caught, and the belief that eating them can help to fend off diseases, they are frequently eaten by sailors - particularly those on long voyages. Unfortunately, the bitter taste is so strong that it usually makes any other foods it is served with to also taste bitter.
Price: Most people would pay to not eat Spine Fish.
Availability: Spine Fish is almost exclusively eaten at sea. On land, most people would prefer to eat something else, no matter what the other option might be.
Any other details: Some sailors claim that eating Spine Fish is a greater test than enduring the ritual of dunking.
