Kʉrdeneχ (sometimes called kodoχ) is a bird of prey species native to the Frozen Wastes. It is best known among Stenza for their preferred method of preparing it: The bird is smoked with its egg inside of its internal cavity (where a human would put the stuffing of a turkey). The eggshell shatters early on in the heat, before the egg's interior has had time to boil, and the juices give the bird's flesh a unique flavor that the uninitiated often cannot replicate. Kʉrdeneχ are hard to come by during Hunting Season but can be found readily almost as soon as the Stenza leave the ships during Long Night. They are the food most universally associated with First Sunrise because of this, and are widely thought of as a "special occasion" food.
