The Prompt: Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)
Toriah’s actually quite the accomplished cook, especially for someone who finds herself bereft of a kitchen more times than not. Remember, her father was a restauranteur and chef, while her mother is a phenomenal cook due to necessity— she had to cook most of the family’s meals since she was the one who was home most of the time.
Admittedly, Melnir is a better cook while Toriah is the better baker. If she can’t combine everything into one dish and then throw it into an oven or over a fire, then she probably can’t bother with it. I say “can’t,” rather than “won’t,” because, in case I haven’t said it in this post yet, Toriah’s usually out in the field. Usually, all she has in her pack to actually cook with are things to make a fire and— you guessed it— a single fire-resistant dish.
Besides, baking means you make a large batch of something really tasty and you can share it with a lot of people. She’s a huge fan of feeding people (again, she’s the daughter of a restauranteur). Toriah’s favorite savory dish is salmon baked with herbs and lemongrass— a recipe she created while in Grizzly Hills where the rivers teemed with fresh fish.
As far as sweets are concerned, those are Toriah’s ultimate favorites to make and she has a really hard time pinning down just one favorite.. You know Aimee’s Dalaran Brownies? Guess whose recipe Aimee adapted to make those brownies because they’re so malleable and adaptable?
Yeah, that’s Tori’s recipe. She just doesn’t like to brag about it.
