Some themed eats are loosely based on characters; others are pulled directly from the canon. The first one here is one of Spike’s favourites — a delicacy they serve at the Bronze, which he describes as “a sort of flower-shaped thing they make from an onion. It’s brilliant.” It fascinates him endlessly: its dichotomous existence, simultaneously onion and blossom, seems to resonate with Spike, or at least confuses him in an entertaining way. “See, the genius of it is, you soak it in ice water for an hour so it holds its shape. Then you deep-fry it root-side up for about five minutes.” (Mine was baked in a beer batter, but same same.)
Xander: I believe it was vanilla, a cupcake baked in a cone and topped with (vegan) buttercream, raspberry coulis, and chocolate.
And a Weaponry Roast: Mr Pointy parsnips and roasted garlic.
