The Justicar from Paul Kidd's trilogy White Plume Mountain, Descent Into The Depths Of The Earth, and Queen Of The Demonweb Pits is a pretty good camp cook, but that doesn't stop Escalla from once remarking that "real meals don't look up at you from the plate and offer to negotiate". Escalla herself has a tendency to over-sweeten food.
Justicar: Escalla, do we even have the ingredients for any of the food in your recipe book?
Escalla: We can substitute with fresh foods from the wild! We'll do beef ragout.
Escalla: Beef, tree-frog, same difference. It'll be a blast!
