Hello, Aidan!  I think the rosemary pepper sounds wonderful!  So, too, the
portabello powder.  The Teonim would love to borrow from your people.  Do
you grind them all yourself?  They are great proponents of powdered white
pepper, which gives a heat to food (especially smashed potatoes) without
adding an intrusive taste, though they are also fond of cayenne and and
jalapeno (which adds a lovely, Mexican flavor).  They love stews and
casseroles, too (all under the general name of nizzoyzod /nI'zoizod/), and
especially combinations of root vegetables.  They are also quite fond of
what they call _dromgglenvr_ or "layers" ("onion way"), much like lasagna,
only with a greater variety.  They are at work on a red sauce, a green sauce
(suspiciously similar to Salsa Verde), a yellow sauce, and a smokey sauce
(harder to come up with).  They also love hard boiled eggs in various
combinations with other things.

I need to add all these to my Teonaht recipes, but I've been too busy, and
it's difficult putting the directions in Teonaht, what with the food names I
keep finding I don't have words for!
