10 Fictional Universes We’d Like To Live in Based on Food Alone

Allow Us To Explain
So here’s the simple explanation:
1. We were trying to think of a Power Grid.
2. We were hungry.
That’s it. I’m being perfectly serious. What you see before you is the product of a few people sitting down to write something about fandom when they didn’t have any snacks on hand. We started thinking about fantasy food and then had to make a list out of it.
Because there are some settings we’d never like to live in, but if they were a just a restaurant we’d never leave. Some of these foods, of course, have been replicated in the real world (I mean, these are fans we are talking about, we cook just as good as anybody else); and where possible we have tried to include links to the places where you could learn how to make Hotroot Soup, District 11 bread, and even Krabby patties, although some of these recipes are deceptively simple as stating in a clear voice “Tea, earl grey. Hot.”
Runners up are as follows: The Lord of the Rings (for Hobbit food only, it’s pretty clear that nobody likes lembas after a day or so), Trueblood (Pushing Daisies was deemed superior in the pie department due to it’s lack of vampiric complications), Dr. Seuss, Discworld, Star Wars, and World of Warcraft.
