Various foods are unique to Roshar. These include:

  • Avramelon - A fruit of which Danlan is quite fond.[1]
  • Clemabread - A large, baked roll, thick and granular, with spicy paste at the center. Lift thinks that it isn't particularly good, but is filling.[2] Further, she thinks the rolls are only slightly better than gruel, which is only slightly better than cold socks.[3]
  • Pancakes - There are ten varieties of them.[4]
  • Stagm - A brownish tuber that grows in deep puddles.[5]
  • Tallew - A grain that puffs up when boiled in water.[5]
  • Treb - A grain that grows in bunches inside hard pods on vines. Grown in slits in stone, the vines bunch up and grow pods that get wedged so they don't tumble free in storms.[6]


Their milk products are much lesser used, but they do get cream and whatnot from sow's milk. The pigs on Roshar produce more milk from years of natural genetic modification - breeding and whatnot - in the same way that humans have bred cows over the centuries. So they do have milk products. Some of their curries will have different types of cream. Whether they're dipping the crustaceans depends on the culture. For instance, Horneaters have teeth that break claws. Their back molars are different from standard human molars. To a lesser extent, the Herdazians have the same thing going for them. For those two cultures, they’ll chew the shells and eat them. For the Alethi, they're probably dipping the meat in a curry, or just preparing the curry with the crustacean meat in it. There are other cultures where they'll saute It or have a sow's milk dipping sauce or things like that.
