In a word: CHEESE
For me it's the perfect G&S food. Being the keeper of many goats I have an abundance of milk which I collect on a regular basis and place in storage. This provides a constant supply for my four cheese tables. I really like the arrangement (shown above) as it saves me from placing jars out each time I milk. I also appreciate not taking any additional time in food preparation
I expend a fair bit of energy every day just caring for crops and I like to keep my energy level above 80 (it seems to work the best for caring). Cheese with an EP of 18 does this nicely.
For tasks that require more energy, think carpentry, smithing etc., I usually consume goat chops with a 30EP each. Again, I have an abundance of goat meat and this is a good way to help use it up.
My final staple is grilled fish which I am constantly cooking as I am fishing.
Ironically I am a master chef/baker but all that fancy food is sold at market. As I am constantly circulating coins for various QH goods I don't feel guilty about keeping my personal food consumption cost neutral.
I really appreciate the sumptuous banquets and displays that are the forte of Una, Abbondio, and Madame Ragueneau, among others. Not only are they are feasts for the eyes but they help to promote the rp itself.
I couldn't agree more with Abbondio's comment about food that talks. Make it stop!
