Kaiila & Verr Milk

"...the suckling of the young in the sand kaiila is a valuable trait in the survival of the animal; kaiila milk, which is used , like verr milk, by the peoples
of the Tahari, is reddish, and has a strong, salty taste; it contains much ferrous sulphate; a similar difference between the two animals, or two the
sorts of kaiila, is that the sand kaiila is omnivorous, whereas the southern kaiila is strictly carnivorous. both have storage tissues; if necessary, both
can go several days without water; the southern kaiila also, however, has a storage stomach and can go several days without meat; the sand kaiila.
Tribesman of Gor, page 71

Bosk Milk

The Wagon Peoples grow no food, nor do they have manufacturing as we know it. They are herders, and it is said, killers. They eat nothing that has
touched the dirt. They live on the meat and milk of the bosk. They are among the proudest peoples on Gor, regarding the dwellers of the cities of Gor
as vermin in holes, cowards who must fly behind walls, wretches who fear to live beneath the broad sky, who dare not dispute them the open,
windswept plains of their world. Nomads of Gor, page 5
I brought up from the kitchen, where I had been keeping it hot, a vessel of black wine, with sugars, and cups and spoons. Too, I had brought up a
small bowl of powdered bosk milk. We had finished the creams last night and, in any event, it was unlikely they would have lasted the night. If I had
wanted creams I would have had to have gone to the market. My house, incidentally, like most Gorean houses, had no ice chest. There is little cold
storage on Gor. Generally food is preserved by being dried or salted. Some cold storage, of course, does exist. Ice is cut from ponds in the winter, and
then stored in ice houses, under sawdust. One may go to the ice houses for it, or have it delivered in ice wagons. Most Goreans, of course, cannot
afford the luxury of ice in the summer. Guardsman of Gor, page 295

Cheese, Bosk

The Tarn Keeper, who was called by those in the tavern Mip, brought the food, bosk steak and yellow bread, peas and Torian olives, and two
golden-brown, starchy Suls, broken open and filled with melted bosk cheese. Assassin of Gor, page 168

Milk Curds

By one fire I could see a squat Tuchuk, hands on hips, dancing and stamping about by himself, drunk on fermented milk curds, dancing, according to
Kamchak, to please the Sky.  Nomads of Gor, page 28

Arctic Gant Eggs

I stepped aside to let a young girl pass, who carried two baskets of eggs, those of the migratory artic gant. They nest in the mountains of the Hrimgar
and in steep, rocky outcroppings, called bird cliffs, found here and there jutting out of the tundra. The bird cliffs doubtless bear some geological
relation to the Hrimgar chains. When such eggs are frozen they are eaten like apples. Beasts of Gor, page 196

Vulo Eggs
She had been carrying a wicker basket containing vulos, domesticated pigeons raised for eggs and meat. Nomads of Gor, page 1



Grunt, from his own stores, brought forth some dried, pressed biscuits, baked in Kailiauk from Sa-Tarna flour. Savages of Gor, page 328

Black Bread

The great merchant galleys of Port Kar, and Cos, and Tyros, and other maritime powers, utilized thousands of such miserable wretches, fed on brews of
peas and black bread, chained in the rowing holds, under the whips of slave masters, their lives measured by feedings and beatings, and the labor of
the oar. Hunters of Gor, page 13

Sa-Tarna Bread

Then, while the other fellow took his place on the wagon box and started the ponderous draft beast into motion, he gave me two generous pieces of
bread, two full wedges of Sa-Tarna bread, a fourth of a loaf. Such bread is usually baked in round, flat loaves, with eight divisions in a loaf. Some
smaller loaves are divided into four divisions. Kajira of Gor, page 216
"How much bread?" I asked.
"Two of four," she said. That would be half a loaf. The bread would be in the form of wedges. Gorean bread is most always baked in round, flat
loaves. The average loaf is cut into either four or eight wedges. Renegades of Gor, page 70

I went to the side and removed a bowl from its padded, insulating wrap. Its contents were still warm. It was a mash of cooked vulo and rice. Earlier I
had taken Yanina to the kitchen. There, under my supervision, on her chain, kneeling, she had cooked it. It was perhaps the first thing she had ever
cooked. "-Players of Gor.
