food and drink

Are you seeking the edibles and drinkables mentioned in the Handbook?

The places shown on the map above offer clues to a landscape of honeycakes and caviar. (We have tagged and mapped only the mentions of specific items: many location descriptions mention cafes or restaurants, but we treat those separately.)

Click on the placemarks to read the entries, or use the network graph below: when you click on a dot, all other tags attached to that place will appear. By clicking and dragging the dots, you can find unexpected (and expected) connections between places. 

(To make the related dots disappear, just click again on the original dot.)

What will you find?

Well, there are pasties, ices, honeycakes, gingerbread, kvass, strawberries, oranges, perch, caviar, coffee, wine, mushrooms, beer, potatoes, pancakes, and purees.
