International Cuisine | Friday, 3rd period

Class had been alerted that they would be meeting at Portalocity unless otherwise specified, and that their destination this week would be somewhat cooler than Baltimore currently.

When they all showed up, Hannibal nodded to them. "Welcome. The idea of this class is that each week we will experience a different cuisine of the world. Those of you who are not from Earth may not be aware, but this world is home to thousands of different cultures and cuisines. Even those of you that are from Earth may not be familiar with many of the sorts of foods available to you."

He waved them through the portal that appeared, where they ended up on a street in front of a building with a tree growing through it.

"Welcome to São Paulo, Brazil. Brazil is the largest country on the continent of South America; São Paulo is its most populous city. There are influences of both the indigenous peoples and the Portuguese empire in its culture and food. This restaurant is Figueira Rubaiyat, so named because of the tree it is built around. Some of the food is raised and grown locally. They employ a number of meats, from beef to octopus; they also take particular pride in their desserts. The local language is Brazilian Portuguese, but they should also speak English here, or Spanish if you prefer."

He led them in and they were shown to their table. "Please enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions."


[OOC: Anybody that wants to drop by Portalocity and catch them will be welcomed on the field trip, this week or any week! Auditors encouraged. :) ]

Peridot... had no idea what she was doing in this class, really. It was on her schedule. She was definitely meant to be here, at least on paper. But...

She eyed the tree.

Okay, at least that part was nice.

"I'm Peridot, from Homeworld," Peridot said, because... look, that was what it was called. Humans named their planet after dirt. It happened. "And I'm physically incapable of eating."

So.

Whee.

There was nothing masochistic about sitting around watching people do something she found to be disgusting. Mostly it just gave her a reaffirmed sense of superiority.

"It was on the paperwork," Peridot muttered, wrinkling her nose. "But I suppose anything that might help me better understand human customs would be useful."

Since food in general was still something of a mystery to her.

"Well..." Peridot tilted her head in thought for a second. "I understand the biology involved in eating and digesting food."

...

"And that's about it."

Did he want her to explain it? She could do that! Right here! While people ate!

"I... kind of knew... some of that," Peridot hedged. She remembered her early days on Earth, demanding why people were so obsessed with the way things tasted and driving people up a wall in doing so. "Experience?"

"I'm Kaylin Neya. I'm from Elantra, and I'll eat pretty much anything." She wrinkled her nose a little. "But some things I like better than others."

Kaylin shrugged, but her face showed her pleasure. "I'll get to eat good stuff," she said. "So I'm sure I'll enjoy it."
notamascot: (Happy)

Re: Introductions!

[personal profile] notamascot 2017-07-09 03:32 am (UTC)(link)
She shrugged again. "I'm not picky. I do like some of the spicy stuff as long as it's not too spicy."

Kaylin beamed at him. "I'm glad I can do this class again."
