To Eat and Drink

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.
