So… Kemin’s having some trouble crossing the Aturan border. Despite bribing the border patrol with delicious deep-fried spicy meat rolls, he is stuck in Mierat for the time being. Must be something going on in the nation’s capitol.
Unfortunately, that means our food tour must be delayed until another time.
Stay tuned however, for other goodies!
“Breakfast at a diner in the canopy. The trees of Mierat are so large and ancient, that they are able to support buildings and complexes within them. This day started off with a roasted squash stew, pickled radish strips and a scone.”
See the process here:
“Brissel, a close cousin to the hybrid plant broccolini, is one of Mierat’s prized crops, and pairs nicely with a white tea poached salmon as seen here, purchased from one of Mierat’s many street vendors. That’s right, you can get fine dining from a street shop!”
Here’s the process video:
“The Bergamot orange is a revered delicacy in all of Kanvala, as it is grown only in Mierat… specifically in the Earl of Bergamot’s orchard. Because they’ve kind of cornered the market on Bergamot. And by kind of, I mean they’ve totally monopolized the crops. I’m not into politics, but there must be a reason why Regan Holdana won’t bust the House of Bergamot…
Anyway, aside from it’s use in brewing a mean cup of Earl Grey tea, the fruit gives a nice tangy twist to a hearty Mieratan stew.”
~Editor’s Note: There’s a reason the phrase “Beware the Bergamot” is heard frequently in Mierat.
“Ice cream tea is an interesting treat. Much like chocolate-dipped cones, or fried ice cream… You have to act fast! The interior of the waffle cone is coated, typically in a white chocolate, then a mild, grassy green tea on the lines of a Cloud and Mist blend is poured in. This is quickly topped with a plop of ice cream!”
“Our first stop is in Mierat, my home town. We’re known for our handcrafted teas. Actually, tea is so precious here, that it can still be used as a viable form of currency. So brew yourself a cuppa and hang on for tomorrow’s treat.”
~Editor’s note: I’ve never tried this blend, but as it is winter here, I’ll be giving it a whirl!
Here’s the process video:
Today we begin a food tour of Kanvala! Kemin will be showing us all that’s good to eat in this amazing world, each day of October.
Here’s a video of the process:
The piplan grows much like a giant grape vine. It’s close cousin the veratine is similar in taste but covered in a fluffy coating that is often peeled off before eating, but doesn’t have to be. The two fruits are similar enough that when one attempts to grow veratines, the plant may end up producing piplan instead. It’s a small gamble.
It’s winter here in the Northern hemisphere! Here’s a hearty winter soup just for you.
The marine region of Rialan champions sea life. Fish motifs show up in cloth patterns, pottery, bells and even this wood-burning oven.
