Recipes of Redwall

          Ah, Redwall. Where various species of bipedal animals eat copious amounts of food. Seriously, there's like a feast and banquet in each book. And there are 23 novels in the series plus a couple of picture books. Wheras I haven't read them all, I did read many of them as a kid and boy did my mouth water. And look, here's a cookbook (left). This is on my "to own someday" wish list. But in the mean-time I can drool over the recipes at the sites listed below. The food is all vegetarian except for some fishes & shrimps. I mean, the animals aren't cannibals, you know. And Redwall is an abby after all.
          While you're at it, take a look-see at my previous post about Brian Jacques and the Redwall series (it's an "in memorium" post).
