There is a saying among alchemists: “Everyone can mix up ingredients. To brew a masterpiece requires recipes.” In Jabbados experience, this saying holds true when it comes to food, even though it loses some of it’s explosive potential on the way from the laboratory to the kitchen.

A recipe turns a pile of produce, no matter how good on its own, into an experience better than the sum of its parts. It offers insights into the history and psyche of the people, the culture or the group that has invented and developed it.

But just like recipes change over time, they are not meant to be presented as static things hewn in stone here. They are meant to be seen as living ideas that can adapt to the circumstances. Replacing that elusive ingredient is just as permissible as experimenting in any way, as long as you are considerate of your invited guests.

Have fun experimenting!

Grass Stew – Veggie Stew with Noodles and Coconut Milk

In general, Orks are known as carnivores, and it would be wrong to say that they were fond of other food if they have a choice. If they do not, they will teeth-gnashingly resort to vegetables, usually in a Grass Stew. This usually happens after a lost battle or a

Rat Tails – Cheesy Snack

Gnome Waybread – Sweet Herb Cookies

Elven waybread satiated with the first bite – because it is impossible do get any more down afterwards. Gnome Waybread however can do much more, because it only satiates after eating quite a lot of it. But opposed to its more well known elven counterpart, it makes you happy starting

Swamp Dragon Ragout – Ragout with Beer-Nettle-Sauce
