Celebrate Midinváerne with GWENT’s holiday recipes!

  • Emhyr var Emreis was very pleased with the Challenger tournament which took place last weekend in his castle, and decided to share with us recipes for some of his favourite Midwinter desserts from around the world.

    We didn’t have much choice but to show them to you as well… so we teamed up with Nerd's Kitchen and got down to work – here is the first one!

    Any berries or forest fruit will do

    Cloudberries would be great; orange colour to bring in the 'Flame' part of the name.
    That's a great idea!

    Tried out White Flame (using frozen blueberries, because the only other option were cultivated, imported ones)... didn't turn out like in the video. But hey, at least it looks just as homemade as it is!
