Pan Seared Ubuk

by Donla Pheinkuk

Many foreigners may assume the food in this underground region is wanting, due to the lack of traditional crops. The people of Terradinum, however, have developed a unique cuisine that cannot be adequately replicated anywhere else in Sobukand. Should you be lucky enough to find yourself invited to a family meal while visiting, you would be foolish to turn down the offer. A traditional home meal is simple, but hearty – steak of seared ubuk, served with a mixture of local mushrooms and a creamy scoop of mashed rutabaga root. All is topped with a glaze made of red wine and another Terradinum delicacy – glowberries. Do not be put off by thought of eating meat from the ubuk – a commonly hunted subterranean worm of unusual size. I can assure you that the meat, when properly prepared, is as good as any land creature I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. Rare have I been so satisfied with a meal as this.   – Excerpt from A Traveler’s Guide to Sobukand by Donla Pheinkuk   For a full recipe on how to make these for yourself, follow this link to the Feast In Thyme article
