Mocory Cream Soup

A beloved delicacy

The mocory cream soup is a dish eaten by the Fae at a yearly event named the Feast of the Fallen Leaves. The dish is made with Fae Mocory Nut Oil and is considered a delicacy by the fae, partly due to the fact that it is only possible to get it once a year.  

The Secret of the Soup

The recipe for the cream soup is kept secret, and the soup is only made once a year specifically for the feast. It's cooked by the same small group of chefs each time. Though there is no official punishment should someone reveal the recipe, all of the cooks understand, that it would have consequences.  

Fae Unity

However, that is not what is keeping them from disclosing the recipe. No one has interest in discovering the recipe, since the soup symbols the bond the different fae have built between them.   Stealing the recipe would be a bad omen for the future of the fae alliance which was established with the Treaty of Kloevendal.   Very few fae has any interest in bringing about any bad energy around the alliance.
The soup is a twist on an old family recipe brought forth by one of the High Fae, Anlyrri Zylthana. The idea was, that the seven high fae in the High Fae Court could come together in the project of making a new dish.   Anlyrri Zylthana got the idea after Magic-Driven Distillation was invented by two of the other high fae, Maielle Adwenys and Aepilon Virgella.   This allowed for the creation of Fae Mocory Nut Oil which had a rich flavour.
  The extremely secret recipe that must not be seen by anyone!

*sneakily reads the recipe* Aaagh it sounds so tasty! I wonder if I could vaguely replicate it with real world ingredients.   I love the symbolism behind keeping the recipe secret, and the alliance/bond it represents.

Thanks Emy! ^-^   It’s probably possible to replicate, I based it off a couple of recipes I had lying around, though maybe reduce the amount of oil :3

So now i have to make this. I do. It would be wrong of me not to try and replicate this in the real world. This is so well thought out and wonderfully immersive.

Oh goodness, if you do, I’d love to hear how it goes XD   if you’re completely serious about it, I’d recommend using less oil than what I wrote :D

I absolutely love this! I love the amount of detail you have put into this, and the symbolism behind each little detail is admirable. I love your website so much, and I only just discovered it. You've inspired me so much!
