[Hi, everyone. Have a view focused on a tray of fresh, hot pastries.]

While I was making these, I had a thought. Everybody here has obviously originally come from all sorts of different times and places, which makes for a lot of interesting conversations. Despite being someone who enjoys cooking and baking, I've never really asked about differences in food. So, if you feel like sharing the information, tell about your favorite dishes from your original universes. I'm curious.

[And then the view of the camera focuses on Wanda's face.]

Those things that you just saw are called kiflice. They're sweet pastries, and some of my favorite things to make and eat. I've filled some with hazelnut spread and the others with plum jam; you can fill them with anything you want, really, but those are my two favorite fillings for them.

[whoops you pinged the interdimensional foodie, sorry wanda :'D]

Those look excellent. I don't think I've ever had kiflice before, actually.

I'd have to say my favorite - although technically this isn't from my universe - but the best I've ever encountered is Serodche blue cheese. Bit of a misnomer, it's actually purple, but their language doesn't have separate words for the two... Sadly, you can only get it in Dimension Ectru, and I'm fairly certain I'm not allowed back.

Yes, please. That'd be fantastic.

It's nothing at all like the salad dressing. Even Earth's blue cheeses are a lot stronger than that. Ectruan cheeses actually have a more umami taste to them, a little less tang. Alien molds, you see.

And whyever should you be? That's one of the principal perks, I find. Although a word of advice: try to make sure ahead of time that none of it's toxic to you. Some chefs are apt to take offense if a guest goes and regurgitates on the banquet.

Yes, unfortunately. It was terribly embarrassing. Luckily, it didn't turn into an intergalactic incident that time.

And in my defense, that chef would have been equally offended if I hadn't tried it.
