As I entered a nationwide cooking contest and have been invited to the finals in three weeks I wondered if you stumbled over some interesting recipes.
Some of the best recipes I found in Rebecca Bradle's Lady in Gil series: Whale balls cubes, maggot pate, fermented chicken innards, snails cooked in garlic root. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

Anne McCaffrey did some books, didn't she? Try: 'Cooking Out of This World' & 'Serve it Forth' as possible examples.

Please let me know where this cooking contest is so I can be as far away from it as possible. Maggot pate???! Ugh!
Much maligned Terry Goodkind has a recipe out there somewhere for the Spice Soup that Richard (the main character) always makes. Here is a link to the recipe: http://www.geocities.com/Area51/1025/Soup.html

See if your library has a copy of "Nanny Ogg's cookbook"

Cygnus, after reading that recipe, I'm having a hard time seeing Richard pulling all those ingredients out of his pack! (He doesn't seem like a zuchinni kind o' guy!)
This is a great post! I've always wanted to taste the foods I've read about so often. Like "honey cakes" (also a Goodkind food?).

I always wanted to compile a Wheel of Time cookbook -- some of the dishes described sound fab. Especially in Tanchico....

Honeycakes seem popular in fantasy.
How about making crappy ale from Ebou Dar. That'll fix 'em all.

Nanny Ogg's cookbook it great 'recipe for banananas' http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif i will make a strawberry wobbler one day. The author who most makes me want to eat the food they describe is David Gemmell, but i have no idea why. I long for a beef and onion pie he describes in one scene and yet the description is minimal. Must just be my general insanity.
