Default Fictional Foods

Have you read about a dish in a book or seen it in a show and said, "How can I make that?"

Share your attempts here.

Here's a fire flake recipe to get things rolling.

Quote:
FIRE FLAKES
Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/4 teaspoons seasoned salt
3 teaspoons red pepper sauce (like frank's, or louisiana style)
1 teaspoon Tabasco, or more to taste (you can even put in a few drops of habanero)
9 cups special k
1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
1 cup pretzel sticks
1 cup fried chow mein noodles

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 250°F.
2. In ungreased large roasting pan, melt butter in oven. Stir in Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and pepper sauce. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients until evenly coated.
3. Bake uncovered 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes. Serve in little paper bags for authenticity.

There are several Earth recipes to make the pan-galactic gargle blaster, but all obviously fall short of the original's merits.

Yes it's quite hard to snag a decent wedge of lemon, let alone a gold brick to wrap it around.

Here's a recipe for Mulgore Spice Bread, from the late Nourish blog.

Quote:
Ingredients:

1 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed (use the heel of your hand to press the sugar into the cup – add sugar until full)
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°F
Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, and egg; mix well (if you have a mixer, use it on a very low setting)
Combine dry ingredients in another bowl; use a mixing spoon or spatula to mix the dry ingredients together – just be gentle! (Optional – add 1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for more spice!)
Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and alternate with milk (just add a little at a time to properly blend it all together); mix well.
Pour into a greased, wax paper-lined 9×5 loaf pan
Bake for 80-90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean (the toothpick test)
Allow loaf to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing it; place on wire rack to allow loaf to cool completely (alternatively, if you don’t have a wire rack, a bacon rack or other item that allows air to circulate under the loaf will work as well).
Wrap and let stand for 24 hours before slicing.
Enjoy!

And yes, they also have a recipe for Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters. Along with Lembas Bread, Chocolate Salty Balls, and Cellular Peptide Cake With Mint Frosting.

Back in January, I posted the following to the GameFAQs Skyrim forum re: my shot at Potage le Magnifique:

Quote:
After reading the article on Joystiq, I felt I had to try out the Gourmet's signature dish. And foist it on my wife and son, too, who were given no other options or means of escape.

And it was good!

Mind you, the Gourmet permits readers to add whatever else they see fit, so I tossed in some chicken (the local grocery store was out of walrus/sea lion meat, which I imagine is the closest equivalent to horker) and a splash of red wine (no mead, either), plus sage, a little thyme, red and black pepper, salt, and a huge wad of crushed garlic. I also bought precooked frozen carrots and fried those up in a pan along with the chicken and onions, which saved me the trouble of simmering all those ingredients in the broth until they'd cooked through. That could've taken ages.

The only challenging bit was adding the flour. The trick is to spoon a bit of soup from the simmering pot into a small bowl, then mix it with a lot of flour (more than you'd think; a 1:1 ratio is about right) until it forms a paste, which you can then dump into the pot without worrying about lumps. Do this a few times and the soup will start to thicken up nicely.

I served it with some croissants, although I'm not sure I'd recommend this to anyone else because the Potage le Magnifique is unbelievably floury on its own and didn't really need any accompanying starches. Still, it was tasty, and I hope that those who haven't tried the recipe will feel inspired to do so.

Honey Shroom:

"A Honey Shroom is an item found in the Paper Mario series. It's made by mixing a Mushroom ... with Honey Syrup."

I tried this once. It's simple, and it works. It's not exactly fantastic, but it's downright decent.

Of course, I only tried one type of mushroom I had around at the time...

Somewhere in the back of my pantry I have some "candy cap" mushrooms, which smell like maple syrup all on their own. I keep meaning to look up a good recipe to use them in...

Aw I was hoping it was about real fictional foods. For example, I would like to know what the fuck Luke and his Aunt and Uncle are drinking in A New Hope.

edit: "real fictional" doesn't even make sense. You know what I meant.

I tried making the official recipe for klah (Dragonriders of Pern) once and found it completely undrinkable, but then I used Hershey's baking cocoa as I didn't know any better.

I should try it again with dutch processed cocoa sometime.

I bought the Redwall cookbook about a year ago and it's definitely worth it. We all know the food was the best part about Redwall anway, and this cookbook proves it!

Oh man. My grade school best friend and I were Redwall nuts and we definitely tried to make a few recipes ourselves.

I've always wanted to eat whatever it was the Lost Boys were eating in Hook during the food fight extravaganza. A lot of it was just a bunch of colorful...paste? I mean it was imagination food, so does that make it, like, double fictional food?

It was probably a lot of cream- and egg-based recipes. You know, things that taste good and make you fart later. Everything a colony of preteen-to-pubescent boys can enjoy.
