Creative Christmas: A Gaming Collaboration, 28th December

Kim at Later Levels has created this amazing gaming collaboration to get everyone in the festive spirit. Today’s post is my answer for this question:

It’s now time to head out to the kitchen to put on your oven gloves and start preparing Christmas dinner. It consists solely of video game food; what’s on the menu?

My Christmas dinner would be inspired by several dishes from Eorzea, in Final Fantasy XIV.

The starter would be:

starlight_stew_set_iconStarlight Stew- A hearty meat and vegetable soup brewed by families across the realm every Starlight Celebration.

The main meal would be:

roast_dodo_iconA whole dodo slow-roasted over an open fire and stuffed with a savory blend of bread and nuts. Often used in year-end ceremonies as an offering to the Twelve.

I would then serve up three of options for dessert, one to represent each of the starting cities in Final Fantasy XIV. The first is a Starlight Log:

The second dessert would be the Ore Fruitcake:

ore_fruitcake_iconA Starlight Celebration dessert popular in Ul’dah. This cake, if it can be called that, is unparalleled in hardness and density. Every season, at least thirty-seven severe injuries are attributed to various fruitcake-related accidents.

The final dessert would be the Princess Pudding:

And that is what I would serve at my video game food meal! Come back tomorrow for the next collaboration post!
