Balagog gro-Nolob is an Orc who keeps a hidden identity as the famous chef called the Gourmet. He is currently staying in the Nightgate Inn's cellar where he constantly wanders about until about noon when he leaves to go fish down by the pond. You can't initiate any conversations with him until you are asked to kill him in a quest given by the Dark Brotherhood, in which your only conversation options are to either announce to him that you know he is the Gourmet, or tell him it is time for him to die.
