Note: Most of this information came from The Narnia Cookbook: Foods from C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia by Douglas Gresham, but I have made up some of the Calormen dishes, such as the omelette, figgy pudding, and the mushroom philo pastry, and the lamb pasty of the Archenlanders. I have also made up the varieties of meat pasties, except for the venison pasty. The mushroom salad, sausage rolls, orange juice, and Dwarf Stew are not mentioned in The Narnia Cookbook but they are consistent with the English-flavored universe.

Frog Pie comes from a historical Spanish recipe. Marshwiggles like fricasseed frogs and eel pie so I imagine they would love frog pie.

Note: Not all of these fruits are mentioned in The Narnia Cookbook: Foods from C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia but blackberries, and raspberries are likely to have existed in Britain since Anglo-Saxon times, so I have added them.

Most of the drinks come from traditional English recipes rather than The Narnia Cookbook. My thought is that King Frank I and Queen Helen would have brought their traditional recipes and used Narnian equivalents to make them. These recipes would be passed down as royal recipes. Tea and coffee are mentioned generally in the Narnia books.
