Word: roast, grill, broil



We know that despite the well-known Klingon penchant for preparing food raw, there are exceptions (e.g. roast leg of lIngta'). I believe I might have seen meQ used to achieve this effect, but somehow this seems to me to imply a culinary gaffe has occured.

Comment below with feedback and suggestions.


    1. Or simply tujDaq Soj vut prepare food in a fire.

      I also wonder if meQing food is actually even considered a bad thing to do, and thereby providing a shorthand for roast, grill. KGT only mentions that "burnt tendon is definitely a culinary gaffe" (p. 191, my emphasis). Perhaps burning tendon is considered a fail (because according to TKD most Klingons like it deep-fried), but perhaps there are some Klingon foodstuffs that are best when they're burned/seared(/roasted?)

  1. Roasting is not uniquely associated with food preparation; it's also used to process ores in metallurgy. So that's a point in this suggestion's favor.
