As the days get shorter, and with them the frost and the first snows cover the lands of the Continent, its inhabitants, according to their own local customs, begin preparations for Midinváerne celebrations.
Especially on such chilly days, nothing warms you up better than the warm bowl of Dandelion Dashing Mushroom and Plum Soup, the recipe which the poet learned long ago, during one harsh winter he had to spend in Oxenfurt.
