Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

From my website:

Andorian cuisine

"Commander Benjamin Sisko recalls an incident involving Curzon Dax, Science Officer Kustanovich of the USS Livingston, and eight helpings of Andorian redbat. [Invasive Procedures.] Lieutenant Jadzia Dax enjoys Andorian tuber root more than Sisko and he lets her steal some off his plate. Seyetik presents a recipe to the station's officers that requires the use of an Andorian boiler. [Second Sight.]

"Authentic Andorian ale is available from Quark's bar [Meridian] as are Andorian Sunset cocktails. [DC Comics' The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine crossover mini-series]. An Andorian Fast Food outlet (Shop 01-754) is located on The Promenade [as seen on the directory board in the television special The Science of Star Trek].

"An Andorian citric beverage sampled by Nog tasted like a clear, fizzy version of the smell of a Terran goat in lemon oil. [Avatar, Book 2 (Pocket, 2001) by SD Perry.] Roasted Andorian flatroot is a delicacy popular with the Ops staff. [Mission Gamma, Book 2: This Gray Spirit (Pocket, 2002) by Heather Jarman.] This is also known by its Andorian term, hari.

"An Andorian stimulant beverage, katheka, is similar to Terran coffee. [Andor: Paradigm by Heather Jarman in Worlds of Deep Space Nine, Book 1 (Pocket, 2004).]

"Recipes for Andorian Tuber Root (in a pie, topped with marshmallows!) and an Andorian Ale (a yellowish, nutty version with a foamy head, not blue as eventually seen in Enterprise) are featured in the Star Trek Cookbook by Ethan Phillips and William J Birnes (Pocket, 1999).

Roasted flatroot, a brownish orange Andorian vegetable dish, and imparay redbat, a meat dish, go well with faridd, an Andorian beverage. [Enterprise: Rosetta (Pocket, 2006) by Dave Stern.]"

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

The coloured food cubes from TOS's protein resequences either taste like chicken, or Play-Doh...

I don't know why, I always imagine Hasperat to be like seaweed until I saw it on screen.

Romulan ale, I imagine, tastes like cleaning fluid. Though I did always wonder why even the Romulans call it Romulan ale And why would they only make one variety of it?

I did also wonder why Phlox's jar of leeches was handwritten (and why presumably Phlox couldn't draw an N the write way round). Maybe that labelling machine that tagged up everything else on the ship was out of tape The leeches I imagine wouldn't taste of much, but you'd be chewing it for a few hours...

Anyway, enough of this speculation, I'm going to go and have some Earth Coffee.

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

I know it's slightly off track but I was taken to a very posh Chinese restaurant recently and had Sea cucumber. It was disgusting, like eating a slug! and very difficult to do with chopsticks! Yuck!

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

I imagine hasperat to be more of a wasabi type hot. It's obviously something pickled since you need a "good brine" to make it. So maybe something kim-chee like, but without the fishy taste...

Plomleek soup...like a weak leek broth.

Food cubes...like marshmallows!

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

The one time I remember seeing hasparat, it looked like an organic Indian burrito a local grocery chain carried all too briefly. So I imagined it to have a grainy curry texture to it, probably tasting like creamed spinach and the fires of hell.

Plomek soup struck me as a plain seaweed dashi. Unadorned seaweed broth is a bit... flavorless.

Kanar looked like syrup.

Gagh probably tastes like live octopus.

I remember seeing hasperat in "Second Skin," and it definitely looked like a burrito. Which is probably why I equated it with Mexican spices.

That and for whatever reason I'd already equated Cardassian food with Southeast Asian food (descriptions of the food reminded me of things I'd eaten in Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants)--and so whatever Bajoran food was, it could NOT be THAT.

Kanar looked like syrup.
That was SO nasty when it ran down the mirror after Damar threw that glass.

Alcoholic molasses. Mm-mm-good.

NOT.

Isn't replicated food look suspiciously similar to soylent green? So it must taste like high energy plankton. Which tastes suspiciously like human. I guess.

Re: what does Star Trek food taste like?

I haven't really read much of the thread, but I'd assume that everything alien tastes like chicken.

It's always like that in TV, movies, cartoons, games, books and comics.

"Hmmm... tastes like chicken."

I imagine Batter-Fried Klingon Squid tastes alot like Batter-Fried Korean Squid, simply because that's what producers used on the set. Go Riker!

Oh, and I imagine Owon Eggs taste like ass.
