The Unixplorian food culture draws inspiration from the past and present. In many ways, we live at the crossroads of culinary traditions.
Our Scandinavian heritage sets the standard for most of our taste palette, where fresh products from the forest's pantry and seafood are essential ingredients. We contribute to the great European cuisine, but we are always original and differ from the Continental by our culinary roots. Our historical and cultural heritage picked up flavors from the far corners of the world. The new ingredients are then lovingly blended and aligned to match our Unixplorian taste buds. Enjoy our delicious food and drinks, we do!
Eight easy steps for making your Unixplorian schnapps:
1. Buy a decent vodka. I usually use a brand of "brännvin," a Scandinavian liquor distilled from potatoes. The ABV is the same as in most vodkas,
2. Pour the vodka into an airtight glass container.
3. Add spices suitable for the season. I use dill, lemon, and ginger for our Easter schnapps. (*)
4. Let it mature for 2-7 days depending on what spices you've added. I removed the ginger after 24 hours since it usually adds too much spice for my taste.
5. Add a bit of honey or sugar to taste. Stir well!
6. Filter through a regular coffee filter.
7. Pour the schnapps into a bottle.
8. Enjoy Responsibly, if you can!
Most citizens of our fair kingdom would agree that Unixplorian tapwater would be their primary thirst quencher. Water is also the base ingredient for our national pride: Unixplorian beers and wines.
We have all heard that "Stressed spelled backward is Desserts." For Unixplorians this is taken quite literally. A good dessert is not eaten in haste; it is enjoyed without the sound of a ticking clock.
Eating doesn't just mean stuffing your belly to survive; it is a ceremony of esthetics as well as tradition. The culinary arts thrive here in Unixploria thanks to our endless curiosity and hankering for the good life.
