Cuisine and Agriculture in the Age of Sigmar

General

  • Those settlements and civilizations that have easy access to seas, lakes, and rivers will often be able to incorporate fish and other aquatic creatures as part of their stable diet. Fishing is most common in the Realms of Aqshy and Ghur.[2a][2b] Sky-fishing is also a common industry among those civilizations with access to vessels that can fly such as the Kharadron Overlords and fishing flees of the Realm of Azyr.[2a]
  • Game, meat acquired via hunting, will also be incorporated into the diets of many societies across the Mortal Realms. Hunting for food is particularly common in Aqshy and Ghur.[2a]
  • Dried or smoked meats, dried beans, dried fruits, and bread tend to be the most common rations used by travellers.[2b][26b] Saolbread, a long-lasting variety from the Realm of Life, is also popular.[2b]
  • Taverns across the Mortal Realms tend to offer a variety of foods, most common among them are bread and ales, often made from local grains, as well as spirits and wine.[1a] Other stables include foods such as cheese, fresh meat, and locally grain vegetables.[1a][2b]
  • Iron Rations are used by soldiers of the Freeguilds whilst they are out in the wilderness. These usually include hard tack and dried meat.[38a]
  • In the taverns, winesinks, bars, and pubs of the Cities of Sigmar Twin-Tailed Ale is always on the menu, though every city has their own take on this far-reaching drink. It is usually made from local grains and filtered water.[2b]
  • Most Gargants in the Mortal Realms are willing to accept food as payment for mercenary work, this fact has resulted in more than one high-stakes cooking competition breaking out before a battle as the forces on both sides attempt to sway a Gargant to their side. Volume and flavour are key factors to winning such competitions.[43a]
Stein of Magmalt

Realm of Aqshy

  • Some, wealthy and daring, Aqshians have been known to spice their food with Emberstone.[23a]
  • The communal kitchens and bakeries of the Brass Mire district of Hammerhal Aqsha are built around heat wells, holes in the ground that lead to the magma of the Adramar Rift far below.[44a]

Realm of Azyr

  • In the Realm of Azyr sky-fishing is known to be an expansive enterprise, with entire fishing fleets dedicated to the industry.[20a]

Realm of Chamon

  • In Droost there exist a collection of stone towers built in the Age of Chaos to defend the region's borders and settlements from the monsters and the rampaging servants of Chaos, after the region was incorporated into Sigmar's Empire in the Age of Sigmar the forts were ceded to the Order of Azyr. These forts were built over underground wells and had vaults constructed within them to allow the cultivation of edible moss and mushrooms, making them self-sufficient.[30a]

Realm of Ghur

  • Tandoors, a type of oven, are known to be used by some of the people of Thondia.[46a]

Realm of Ghyran

  • Aqshian delicacies, like salamander-meat, find heavy demand in the markets of the Jade Kingdoms.[2a]
  • Crops and other foodstuffs from the Garden City of Hammerhal Ghyra are transported to settlements, cities, and armies all across the Mortal Realms. In turn grubs and bugs serve as the primary sustenance for the people of the city.[16a]
  • The Free City of Greywater Fastness boasts a robust food culture with eateries and mobile restaurants around the city catering to all manner of tastes. Its many food carts are known to specialize in specific cuisines and dishes, with a Greywater twist and notable substitutions, ranging from spicy foods from Aqshian to delicate Azyrian dishes. Local favourites include meat and vegetable pastries as well as curried peas.[51a]
  • In Demesnus Harbour flour dough is often baked with pollen from bullrushes, to help thicken the bread.[36a]

Realm of Shyish

  • Fishing galleys ply the waters of Shyish. They bring in hauls of edible fish, such as bledrig, which are consumed by the human denizens of Shyish, especially in coastal cities such as Lethis.[4a][4b]
  • By the Age of Sigmar the cruel dominion that Nagash holds over the Realm of Shyish has left much of it barren. Its grey soil can sustain nothing but the hardiest of crops, its waters are full of ghostly eels, grey fish, and skeletal monstrosities which serve as the primary food source of the living.[22]
  • The soil in Shyish is often of poor quality, leeched of vital nutrients, thus those that reside in the Realm tend to cultivate hardier plants that bear tasteless strains of fruits and vegetables.[2a]

Cannibalism

There are those in the Mortal Realms that partake in a particularly morbid culinary endeavour, the consumption of other sapient creatures. The most notable purveyors of this grisly form of cuisine are the Ogor Mawtribes, the Bloodbound of Khorne, and the Flesh-Eater Courts.[3a][24a]
