The Sweetest of Delicacies
Oh my friend, you simply must try my pastries, they are the best on this market! Want to know my secret? They are made with Serulian honey..
Serulian honey is one of the most coveted delicacies in all of the Danatelian Lands. It is the food of the rich and powerful, its flavours layered and sweet like the kiss of a lover. The secret of its fabrication is well kept, and the only hope one has of ever tasting without spending a fortune is to gain the friendship of a Serulian.
Liquid GoldFor the Danatelians, Serulian Honey is worth every penny merchants sell it for. It is an luxury, reserved for the elite. And as all things rare and priceless, countless imitations can be found on markets and bazaars. However, only those who have never tasted true Serulian honey will be fooled by these pale imitations.
The honey is used in a wide array of recipe, for those who can afford it. Buttery honey-lemon cakes, lavender buscuits with a tinge of sugar, slow cooked sheep with herbs and its rich sauce, the possibilities are as endless as the cook's imagination. Serulian honey simply betters any food it is paired with.
The Serulians are an ellsuive people who live in the Altas forest, at the heart of the Danatelian Lands. They are mostly known for their tendency to avoid outsiders, and the delicious honey they trade with a few selected merchants.

Oooo I love honey. I wonder what they do to make it so taste so good. I love how you delve into the religious context. I think that second quote is fantastic in showing how important it is. Well done.
Thank you for the kind words <3 ! Religion really is my go to theme to develop anything ^^

I feel as though the merchant in the top quote is lying. Scandal. I love the religious meaning behind Serulian honey. Your religious stuff always makes me so happy.
Could very well be! Though whoever can tell is either insanely lucky, or filthy rich. And oh :'0 that means a lot, thank you so much!!

This is a neat take on Honey and its meanings in a culture. it certainly made me think about honey's role in Gaia. The Serulian Quote really stands out on it's importance. Very well done indeed!
