Cooks of Dereth have been hard at work and have added a collection
of delicious new recipes to their cookbooks for the Festival Season.
Many of these recipes will become year-round favorites while some
are centered on the festivities of the season.
Recently three new ingredients have been found in Dereth and its
Peppermint: Cooks have started using this new ingredient in their
recipes since its appearance on Drudges and Mosswarts this winter.
Many scholars believe that the mischievous creatures used some magical
means to steal the Peppermint from the strange Candy Sticks that
appeared in towns recently.
NEW INGREDIENTS (Cont.)

the jungles of the Vesayen Isles in the Southeast. When ground,
it adds a lovely flavor to certain dishes.

ground and used in cooking. Cooks have already found they can use
it to make Ginger Bread, and an industrious Tinsmith named Woz,
