I’m back online AND back in the kitchen working on another recipe post. Whoot!
Isn’t it a bit early in the morning for drunk food, Korra?
I will put Korra images behind the cut until the episode has aired on TV.
Which I’ll be trying out/refining over the course of the next few months. Current ideas include:
-Cactus Juice: tequila, lemon pucker, lemon-lime soda. (IT’S THE QUENCHIEST)
-The Avatar State: Ginger beer (preferably Fever Tree), blue curacao, and lemon juice. Add a blue or white glowstick for mystical power!
-Ty Lee Twist: Plum wine, sparkling water, gin, cranberry juice.
-Uncle Iroh’s After-Burner: Strong Lapsang Souchong tea, Fireball whiskey.
Any other Avatar Drink ideas you’d like to see (or do you have a recipe you don’t mind sharing)? Characters that deserve an adult beverage? Want to try one of these out and tell me your findings? Wanna come over to sew and slosh?
What’s Republic City’s favorite sport? Pro-Bending of course! And who’s our favorite pro-bender? Well mine’s the Fire Ferrets’ ever-adorable earthbender Bolin, who would probably wolf down more than his fair share of these buttery shortbread cookies. And they’re made to look just like the earth discs that he slings around the arena every night! (The method is courtesy of the fantastic mindfire327, recipe is my own!)
Hello everyone and welcome to nombending, a nerdy little blog that’s one part recipe spam, one part anthropology project, and all parts Avatard.
As you know, the Avatar universe is full of rich, detailed cultures and the team behind AtLA and LoK have done a wonderful job building a believable world. One of the most important physical and cultural aspects of this (or any world) is food! In this blog, we’re going to recreate some of the signature recipes of the Four Nations and the United Republic and use cultural contextual clues to construct cuisines (ALLITERATION, FTW) for them.
Of course, if you want to skip all the educational stuff and just make the recipes, that’s cool, too.
So who are you?
I’m Jen, I’ll be your blogger for this madcap culinary experiment. I should preface everything with the confession that I’m not a chef or a culinary professional by any stretch (though I know a few)- just a hobby cook with an experimental streak. However, I will always try my best to research and present safe kitchen procedure.
Outside of the kitchen, I’m a senior at University studying history and anthropology. I like costuming, drawing, sleeping, and writing wordy fanfic in my spare time. (Shout-out to all the foxy mommas on the S.S. Amorra!)
I can’t think of anything else to say… so I guess if people ask me more questions as we go I can edit this post. In the meantime, though- to the kitchen!
