Broiled Krada Legs
Heart of Targ
Rokeg Blood Pie
Stewed bok-rat Liver
The Klingon's high metabolism makes eating and drinking an important activity and Klingons take great pride in their recipes. Chefs guard them vigorously. It is a misconception that Klingons eat all their food raw or even live. Many recipes involve cooking and elaborate preparations.
boqrat: A type of animal. As a food item, boqrat livers are stewed in their own blood.
bregit lung: (bIreQtagh) A dish made of the breathing organ of any of a number of Klingon animals prepared in a manner that preserves its tough texture and blanched color.
Durani lizard skins: A delicacy served dried and thinly sliced. This dish was discovered by a Klingon military unit stranded on Durani I without supplies for six months.
Emperor's Meat: A food dish where aged meat is marinated in a sauce made with animal parts, blood and/or fruit juices.
fire skin: A food dish where animal skin is cut up and soaked in a strong liquor, then removing them and setting them alight just before serving. The pieces are eaten quickly while they are still burning.
heart of targh: A traditional dish. Only the heart of the wild targh is eaten. targhmey are also breed for food but their hearts have been weakened by domestication and are not consumed.
Kayvak's Food: A fermented meat dish named for a famous ancient warrior for now forgotten reasons.
pipius claw: A traditional food dish. It is not served cooked but neither is it served live or just killed. Chefs carefully guard their recipes for tearing the creatures apart and marinating the various pieces in some sort of animal fluid to add flavor and chemically alter the texture. The pIpyuS has a hard shell and, while the specifics have not been defined, it may be some sort of crustacean
Qaj: A type of animal. Its tail is served as a food.
qagh: A dish of serpent worms, best when served live. In preparing the dish, the worms are fed diluted animal blood, which the worms find unappealing and will eat only when they are starving. Just before serving, the now ravenous worms are placed in a thick sauce. The worms eat the sauce, including an herb ingredient that is toxic to them and kills them in just a few minutes. Leftover qagh is served as a stew. When referring to the serpent worms themselves, before being prepared as
food, the tlhIngan Hol word is ghargh. It is also served with m'ressa twigs. qagh is killed in one's mouth and the blood is savored. If ingested while alive it will act as a parasite inside the body ("A Time to Kill" Star Trek TNG Novel). Some Klingons say that they don't care for the taste of qagh, but like it for the fight it puts up when eaten. There are reportedly at least 51 distinct "flavor" varieties of qagh.
qa'raj: A type of animal with claws that can be served as food in a number of ways.
qettlhup: A sauce prepared by thickening chanDoq, a marinade.
raHta': A Klingon food. Some type of worm similar to qagh that is also best served live.
rokeg blood pie: A traditional dish. Blood pie is difficult to prepare properly and chefs protect the secrecy of their recipes fiercely. A blood feud was precipitated between the House of Rengat and the House of Dor when warriors of each house claimed to have the better recipe. Rokeg blood pie consists of animal meat and blood baked into a pie. Rokeg blood pie is Worf's favorite food, and because of this, his adoptive parents learned to prepare it.
slimy tongue balls: A klingon food served as an entree.
stuffed toDbaj legs: A Klingon food traditionally brought to the host on the QI'lop holiday.
targh:A Klingon mammal with characteristics somewhere between Terran canines and wild boars. These animals are hunted, although some are kept as pets. The heart and lungs are considered delicacies.
