A steampunk blog of fashion, food and fun..

Steamy food

Much has been said about the fashion, music and culture of Steampunk, but not a whole lot has been made of the cuisine!

So i would like to address this, in some small way.

To me, the basis of all Steampunk is that it is a fusion of cultures, a blend of neo-Victorian and current fashions, materials and aesthetics. Food is a natural extension of that.

When i think of Steampunk food, i think of the feast on the Nautilus in the 1954 film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" where a variety of exciting dishes are laid out, none of which being -quite- what they seem. Traditional recipes with exotic ingredients, or a blend of cultures, making up a harmonious whole.

Fusion cuisine:
Think of a Sunday roast, with game as the meat, sweet potato mash, satay skewers as entree and a coconut pudding for desert, all on fine china, with banana leaf placemats.

Steampunk cuisine always brings to mind colonial era cookery, making the tastes of home mesh with the local ingredients.
