Gloriously and wonderfully, two book bloggers have come up with foodstuffs to accompany The Court of Broken Knives. Bake, mix, sit back and read….
The Speculative Kitchen bakes curd cakes:
“We’d buy bread, if you have some,” he said simply. “Milk, if you have that. Or just water.”
“Sweet water or salt?” she said in response, and laughed a harsh laugh. “You’re in luck, for I have milk, and bread, and curd cakes hot from the oven. If you’ve money for it.”
The Tome and Tankard mixes a strong, sour lemon cocktail:
Muttering. The audience began to disperse. Three men exchanged money between them, obviously settling bets. The sweet-seller jingled his tray enthusiastically; one man bought a bag of preserved lemons with his winnings and wandered off chewing, his lips puckered with the taste. They looked like good lemons. Orhan bought a bag and offered one to Amlis. The salt-and-sour might disguise the smell of onions. The rich golden yellow of their skins made him think of the victor’s hair.
