GM Dictionary: Gastronomy #15

This month we are going with food! This month is a little less definition and a little more factoid. Be aware that some of these are a little vague because there might be evidence that suggests a food was being made but anthropology is a tough science. And be sure that a second of these will make its way to the GMD in the future. Who doesn’t love food??



Fish Sauce: Made from salted and fermented fish, this sauce is a staple in many Asian cuisines that has been around for around 5,000 years. It was also popular in the ancient Mediteranean where it was called garum by the Romans.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
