The Quest 3.2: Hands' Creepy Cookery

By Keith McDonald

Sylvester Hands recounts a few selections from his latest cookery book, 'Sly's sickly succulents'.


Sylvester Hands in The Quest, the Official Knightmare Newsletter. Volume 3, Issue 2.

The book can be obtained from Ah Wok's stall in Grimdale for the minimal price of three dungeon dollars.

Alternatively if you happen to be feeling really strange you might wish to approach the man himself (if you can stand the smell!) in which case the fee will almost certainly approximate to a pint of ale.

The Quest can not be responsible for any effects of actually eating these 'delicacies', but judging from the state of Sly's health the nutritional content is probably not high!

Sly's Sardine and Snail Crumble

Place all the ingredients in a copper pan and cook for a short time in a huge oven. Ale will help all the flavours mingle!

Pickled Tadpoles

Shove the tadpoles into a large glass jar and fill it to the top with the vinegar. Leave for seven months, then swallow, and for every mouthful of tadpole you need at least eight of the ale.

Wart & Bogie Bangers

Scrape out the pie filling and give it to the birds, shove in the little pigeon and the pimples, always use your own pimples with this recipe. Allow to sit in the blazing hot sun for five hours then eat. Oh I nearly forgot, this dish is best served with Old London Ale.

Lubberly Lemon Lizard

Place the lemon on top of the lizard and leave it in a leather knapsack for three months to mature. Eat slowly and drink very quickly, after this nice light meal you should at once go to sleep.

'The Quest' is published by Broadsword Television. Broadsword are the producers of 'Knightmare' for Anglia Television and Children's ITV.
