I don't think we've noticed it all the time, but maybe subconsciously, for the last two years Julia Child has been watching over the creation of this game? :-)

We've often said that the inspiration for creating Crossroads Inn was to look at the adventures in games and stories from the other side. Every adventure begins with a meeting of the characters with a mug of good beer and filling food. This is how we dreamt up our tavern.

And every aspiring tavern in Delcrys must respond to the various needs of its customers with offerings to satisfy the desires of both their palates and spirits. The smart pricing of drinks, dishes and services makes up only a fraction of the responsibilities of a successful inn manager. One of the biggest challenges is to obtain the unique recipes and rare ingredients necessary to serve up specialties about which legends are told throughout Delcrys’ many roads and byways. Ambitious innkeepers, while sitting in their bowers during breaks, dream of this secret knowledge, hoping that finally, their own menu will be enriched by the most valuable culinary goods from across the continent.

We are a group of guys who are not masters of cooking, so the next, extremely important step was to find someone who would help us to reflect the atmosphere of Delcrys and the cultures living in them through food.

Anita from Nerds' Kitchen, responsible for preparing a culinary e-book based on the world of The Witcher, prepared for famous CD Projekt Red was the perfect choice.

Anita and her blog, Nerds' Kitchen, have been dealing with the influence of food and cooking and its impact on building the culture of virtual universes and immersion in the broad sense of the term for years. Anita herself says that

However, well-thought-out culinary motifs that are integrated into the game and the universe itself have a huge power, thanks to which the game can rise to the next level of good game design.

We don't think we could have imagined a better person to work with. That is why together we have created several dozen proposals of dishes and drinks, thanks to which each inn will be able to boast of its exceptional and unique menu.

The process of creating menus and dishes in the game was a result of many factors. Inspired by the mythology of the Delcrys world, which was created by the boys from Kraken Unleashed - the culture of countries and societies inhabiting Delcrys, and what they were based on, which was also inspired by real cuisine such as European, medieval or Middle Eastern world. The next step was to match the ingredients, tastes and textures so that they fit the theme to the character of the kingdom of Delcrys.

Thanks to our efforts in the culinary aspects, the game and its universe have taken on a richer and more original dimension. At the same time, I am proud that this will be the first title on the market, in which dishes appearing are the fruit of my work as well. In addition to the mechanics aspects, we also developed 12 recipes for the legendary game dishes and included them in the "Crossroads Inn Cookbook"- Anita says.

20b841fdf36d60cba1b287eeb3469e0a

The “Crossroads Inn Cookbook” will be available as an ebook in the pledge from $55 and above. Inside you will recipes for 12 unique, legendary meals such as:

Cheese & Ale soup from Untermach

Dear Haunch with wild berry sauce from Yorevale

Gilded Potatoes from Sambria.

One of your main goals and ambitions in the game will be collecting all of them and serving them to guest to ensure fame and wealth to ensure fame and wealth loudly throughout the kingdom.

To give you a sneak peak of the recipe awaiting in the cookbook, you can find a delicious recipe of SWEET FISH DUMPLINGS FROM BERSUHL on Nerds' Kitchen Blog!

Ps. We almost forgot! We take the creation so serious that we have even created our own beer! :-)
