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- A hearty meat and vegetable soup brewed by families across the realm every Starlight Celebration.
The main meal would be:
A 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:
A sweet Starlight Celebration dessert popular in Gridania. This cylindrical cake is formed to resemble one of the Black Shroud’s many sacred trees.
The second dessert would be the Ore Fruitcake:
A 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:
A tasty Starlight Celebration dessert popular in Limsa Lominsa. This cake-like sweet is formed to resemble the legendary notorious monster, Princess Pudding─a terrible beast rumoured to once have roamed the meadows of La Noscea.
And that is what I would serve at my video game food meal! Come back tomorrow for the next collaboration post!
