Another day, another interview 🙂
This one is courtesy of Ami Lutkus-Phillips, writing as Mackenzie Flohr. Here’s an excerpt:
Question 5) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Historically-accurate food. Well, mostly historically accurate. I love cooking and food in general, and that seeps into my writing. I enjoy tremendously researching old recipes, and integrating the dishes into the story. Who wouldn’t be impressed by a feast serving dishes of brain-and-jellyfish custard? Or buying fried dormice in honey and poppyseeds from a street stall? And let me assure you, that these are historically accurate dishes.
Then again, there are also some adjustments for the fantasy aspects of the world. One of my favourite scenes to write was just such a feast.
