Bread And Venison

Spying, Spring Indigo sees bread being baked, realizes that the smell is "...intoxicating..." (p. 354) and understands why Peter dreams of eating it.

Later, at the main campfire, she tends a hide trough full of water where venison, onions, roots and greens cook, kept hot " dropping in hot rocks..." (p. 357). Leather is lighter than metal and less breakable than pottery. Peter's stomach rumbles.

Our food thread continues to grow.

Kaor, Paul!

We don't see as many discussions about food in the works of Poul Anderson as we do in those of S.M. Stirling! Stirling even devotes some thought into how the Nantucketers try to make even military field rations PALATABLE.

David Birr, our retired US Army officer, might have some opinions about "Meals Ready To Eat" (MRE for short)!
