Food in the How To Train Your Dragon Universe

A list of the foods seen or referenced in the How To Train Your Dragon film and TV series (Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk).

Food explicitly seen or named:

  • Fish: salmon [lox], eel [bloodbane, unnamed yellow striped species, unnamed yellow mottled species], sturgeon, guppy, fish eggs, crab cakes (Breakneck Bog);

  • Meat: yak [steaks, ribs], sheep, goats, chicken, wild boar;

  • Fruit and vegetables: potatoes, cabbage, apples, lingenberries, dragon nip;

  • Baked: bread [sandwiches], biscuits, poundcake, barley cake*;

  • Meals: chowder;

  • Other: eggs, dairy [yak, sheep, goat], honey, ice;

  • Questionable: "sheep dip"**.

* Barley Cake, or possibly Burly Cake?, is mentioned by Dagur in View to a Skrill Part 2.
** "Sheep dip" is referenced in Fright of Passage, and may be mutton dripping or something similar.

In Book of Dragons, we also see Bork farming some sort of cereal, and later see him and his partner eating some sort of corn on the cob which... later pops. There's nothing that fits that description that I can find.

Animals which get referred to, may or may not be on Berk, may or may not be eaten:

  • Squirrel [ref. Terrible Twos]

  • Chipmunk [ref. Terrible Twos]

  • Moose [ref. Dragon Flower]

  • Reindeer

  • Shark [shark skin seen in The Heather Report and Cast Out Part 1]

  • Ducks [ref. "leather duckies"]

  • Squid (or giant squid) [ref. Dragon Flower, Frozen]

Fishlegs also refers to the colours pistachio and apricot, implying knowledge of the nut and fruit respectively. [ref. Appetite for Destruction]

Stuff which may or may not be edible:

  • Bark beetles [ref. View to a Skrill Part 2]

  • Broad grass (presumably a species of broad-leaved grass?) [ref. The Flight Stuff]

  • Fish oil [ref. Free Scauldy]

  • Buckthorn, rock blossoms, goatweed, wild dagga plant [ref. The Eel Effect]

Addendum: other foods are also visible in the online game School of Dragons, although the canonicity of this game (and its grasp on geography) are questionable to say the least. Below is a list from the game.

Foods grown while farming:

  • Dragon Nip

  • Corn

  • Sunflowers

  • Cabbage

  • Pumpkin

  • "Toothache Plants"

  • Tomatoes

  • Lavender

  • Elderberries

  • Flax

  • Black Beans

Animals to be farmed:

  • Chickens

  • Sheep (white or black)

  • Yak

  • Turkeys

  • Rabbits

Fish to be caught:

  • Perch

  • Brown Trout

  • Herring

  • Halibut

  • Salmon

  • Eels

  • Ozark Cavefish

  • Blindfish

  • Lugworm [bait]

  • Glowworm [bait]

  • Minnow [bait]

In the game Eel Roast, eels can be striped red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple, plus "bonus eels" which are glittering white and black striped, and "electric eels" which are grey and black striped. For Fireball Frenzy, Snotlout states that Hiccup has discovered an "energy fish" which allows dragons to safely break their shot limit for a small amount of time.

Other food items seen in quests [incomplete list]:

  • Kelp

Astrid also reveals during a quest that Yaknog is made of yak's milk, eggs, cabbage and kelp, which explains a lot.
