Why is it that whenever I set out to meta about things my mind wanders to food first of all.

OH WELL!

Suffice it to say this is all about AU Stormwind because canon is boring and stuff and nobody talks about this in-game and I like food. Food is a Major Thing in my family and a MAJOR major thing in my girlfriend's. So yeah, when I think about differing cultures the thing I think of first is often cooking. Food = home.

BASICS: Stormwind cuisine is some kind of joyous WTF hybrid of different aspects of Proven├žal, Canadian Maritime, Irish, British, Welsh, and Norwegian cuisine, to compare it to our world foodwise. In-universe, it's influenced by High Elven and Dwarven cooking primarily, with Night Elven and Draenei running a close second.

Stormwind has a tea culture similar to that of many places in the UK. If you ask a Stormwinder what meals he or she eats throughout the day, you'll hear 'breakfast, dinner, (high) tea and supper'. They do 'full breakfasts' much of the time (eggs, bacon, toast, baked beans, and so on). If you hear a Stormwinder mention 'low tea', that's an afternoon snack.

Also, King Varian Wrynn is really fond of fish and chips.

and the miscellaneous categories of of snacky-snacky! )
