MY PHILOSOPHY regarding FOOD and DRINK
Much of the food and drink seen on-screen was made using unappetizing or inedible ingredients because it was not meant to be palatable, or even eaten, it was meant to look like whatever the script called for.
Since we consume what we serve, and we want to enjoy it, we spent a lot of time looking for food that would look like what was seen on-screen but actually tasted good!
It was also important to us that the food be unusual; in other words, not what most Americans ordinarily eat. Because I have been an avid cook since I was about 12, and we both enjoy trying new and different cuisines, our panty is full of oddities and this was not too difficult for us but some of the ingredients we used may be hard to find for people who live in remote areas. Many of the dry goods are available online, the fresh ingredients you will need to track down locally.
I will provide recipes where possible but copyright laws prevent me from sharing published material. In those cases I will provide the name of the cookbook I used. If you're pressed for time, I can email you the recipes, I just can't post them here.
THE FOOD WE SERVED
I split the food into two parts, the food we served, and the food we did NOT serve.
The food we served is below.
On the left is a screen print, in the middle is our food, on the right is supporting data, if needed.
