I wanna create a community made cookbook. Filled with two types of recipes. One type that you can actually make and another that can only exist on the island.

What do you guys think? Should we do something like this? If so, how would we do it? I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to whip up something in GDocs.

I'd imagine we'd have your basic categories like appetizers, soups, main dishes and so on for the two book types.

Hell, it would be an idea to even make a memento to give away as well once the cookbook is fleshed out. There could be a link in the memento to the GDoc with all the recipes.

Okay, I am in LOVE with this idea. So, I'm just gonna throw my ideas out there.

Firstly, cookies.
What kind of cookies give you enough stamina to fucking beat up monsters for hours? Not many I know. So, for a cookie recipe, it could be perfectly normal, except with WAY TOO MUCH SUGAR.

Same thing for a Valentine's cookie, except you literally throw a heart shaped cookie cutter into the literal mix.

Next, tea!
(See Tinkerbinker for recipes.)

Next, next, some rather common Mementos I could think of that are foods!
Scooby Snax! (Mine)
Mepins Muffins!
A bottle of Aiki's refined Improbable Wine!
Deelishus Toast!
Those candies that Wish made, maybe?

Next, next, next...
Then onto canon foods.
Unrep NEEDS to be in there.
Romantic Fun Pile.
All those waters from Kittania.
Maybe some of Joe's lame ass foods?
Crap meat!
Tasty meat!
Some disgusting foods from SH.
Etc, etc, etc.

That sounds delightful! I love cooking (and cookbooks). Though you know I'd have to write Esc's recipes in character...

Maybe we can wrestle a Happycakes recipe out of Ferryn?

Anyone who knows me knows I love cooking and I love food! So I'm totally on board. In fact, I'm a little jealous that I didn't come up with the idea myself!

We should strive to come up for recipes for the food in the varios outposts. Bangers and mash should be easy; I'm curious as to what we can come up for the romantic fun pile though!

Oh, and to answer Zoinks' question, I make espresso chocolate chips cookies at home. They can keep you up jungling for hours.

The waveform noodles would present a problem, but some of the dishes could easily have a recipe one could make at home. I should make the zombie drinks for Halloween and post pics.

I can supply a recipe for high stamina/energy cookies that actually taste good. It'll take a bit of experimenting to get it right, though.

This is indeed a fantastic idea! I think we should include a tasty meat dry rub (pretty authentic, given our limited prep time in the jungle) and crap meat curry. Maybe even a tasty/crap meat melange in the vein of bacon-wrapped filet mignon.

Twitchleaf: Basil/Oregano/Bay/Sage
SneezeRoot: Ginger/Turmeric/Anise/Cinnamon
SteelSeed: Black pepper (necessary and unique!)
Scroteweed: Carageenan? Nori? Hijiki? There aren't too many algae-oriented seasonings...

I love the idea, I can take some of the "recipes" from the bar and toss them in if you'd like, like the tasty meat stew that I actually based on a stew my mom actually makes Big Grin
