Top 5 Delicious Fictional Foods We WISH Existed

Food. We can’t live without it, and luckily, it is, in all its delicious forms, one of life’s greatest pleasures. This is well reflected in the media landscape, with numerous TV shows devoted to the art of fine cuisine (Man V Food, I’m looking at you). Books are no stranger to the glorification of food, and writers have conjured astonishingly meals that are guaranteed to make your mouth water.

 

Here are five of the best fictional foods we wish really existed; each one devoted to making your mouth water!

 

5. Lembas bread from The lord of the rings

A special bread made by elves (also known as waybread in the Common Speech), lembas bread is very nutritious and stays fresh for months, aiding the Fellowship in their long journey across Middle-earth during the War for the Ring. Frodo and Sam in particular find it invaluable, subsiding on it during their walk to Mordor. Lembas is noted as tasting similar to honey-cakes, only being even better. Unfortunately, the recipe is a closely guarded secret but that doesn’t make the bread any less tasty.

 

4. Cauldron Cakes from Harry Potter

Cauldron cakes are a popular wizarding treat eaten by Harry and the gang multiple times throughout the series. They can be bought from the trolley aboard the Hogwarts Express or Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade. They play an important role at the dawn of Harry and Ron’s friendship, when Harry offers one to Ron, who doesn’t have enough money to buy his own. Cauldron cakes are probably a delicious sweet, always a fine snack when they appear.

 

3. klah from Dragonriders of Pern

A restorative drink in the world of Pern, klah functions as an analogue to coffee, as it is described as a mix between chocolate and cinnamon, always served hot. It is made from klah bark, ground up and brewed, although it can go bad if left on the fire for too long. It is drunk by multiple characters throughout the series and the official recipe is: two tablespoons sweet ground chocolate, 1/2 cup dark cocoa, 3/8 teaspoon cinnamon, one teaspoon dark instant coffee crystals, ground to powder and a small pinch of nutmeg. Brew it with boiling water then stir well. Enjoy!

 

2. The Great Hall Cake from Redwall

The Redwall series always has lavish descriptions of food served in the titular Redwall, often tremendous feasts for the abbey’s inhabitants. Uniquely, with the residents being vegetarian animals, the meals are entirely plant-based creations, with no meat at all, but they still managed to be utterly delicious in their presentation and descriptions. The Great Hall Cake is often the centerpiece of these feasts, a masterpiece of culinary artistry that never fails to make the mouth water. You know you want a bite…

 

1. Just all of A Song of Ice and FIre

Throughout A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin there’s too many lavish descriptions of excellent feasts to pick just one variety of food. Divided up by region, Martin puts as much thought and detail into the food as does into the rest of the world. From the delicious breakfasts at the North, which includes soft-boiled eggs, crispy bacon, berry seeds, and mint tea to lemon cakes to potted hare, there’s no shortage of food to drool over throughout the novels. A personal favorite is a traditional Dornish meal, which includes lamb, stuffed grape leaves, flatbread, wine, and white cheese. Other good foods include fried sardines with pepper in Braavos, elk meatballs with blue cheese in King’s Landing, and and pig stuffed with mushrooms in the South. Its all just so good!
