Howlina Characters Day 18 - Food

"18.) Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)"

Frank is an excellent cook.  He enjoys Tex-Mex, Cajun and Argentinian.  He considers himself and is considered by others as a grill-master.  He particularly likes to make the most from the most ordinary fare.  He tries to add just a little bit of flourish to everything he cooks and enjoys subtle flavors.

The dish that Frank is probably best known for is a gumbo that he developed the recipe for himself and refuses to share with anyone.  The thing that he loves to prepare more than others is a grill mixture of foods that he insists be cut on the plate into small portions so the different elements can be combined on the fork for a different experience in each bite.  Rarely do his guests have that kind of patience and they usually gobble it up without regard to his instructions.

Viole doesn't cook.  She can, she knows how, but she doesn't.  She normally eats very simply when she is alone.  When she is with men, they almost invariably insist on cooking for her.  When she is in a large group she busies herself with other chores and helps in the kitchen but doesn't cook.

She has cooked for men that she is in a courtship with, because that is part of Veebeelo instructions, for each partner to cook for each other.  She does it perfunctorily and without enthusiasm.

Her favorite thing to eat is a salmon salad sandwich or a fish sausage sandwich, either on pumpernickel bread.  Her favorite thing to cook is a cheese, mushroom and kelp omelet.  She also enjoys savesti berry ice cream.
