[Foreword]

This guide is meant to aid players who need assistance with decoding Apicius' 
recipes and also a resource for those who simply wish to see the various 
dialogue options.

Before you begin reading, I would like to state the following:

*	Some dialogue contains spoilers for Story Mode. View at your own 
discretion.
*	Any spelling errors in the actual script will be corrected to help 
conveyance. Grammatical errors, such as "more sorry" instead of 
"sorrier", may be preserved to help capture that character's manner of 
speaking.
*	This topic will use my in-game naming for my own convenience. As such, 
the Fafnir Knight shall be referred to as Siegfried, the Guild as 
Chevalier, and the restaurant as Ambrosia.
*	Beginning with the Second Stratum, Chloe will begin to refer to 
characters by their first names rather than "Mr. /Ms. (Noun)". Some 
recorded dialogue may differ to reflect that.

A. Introduction

=============================================
[A01] What is the Ducal Restaurant?
=============================================

The Ducal Restaurant is a location within High Lagaard, available to the 
player around the time they reach the second floor. Sometime upon returning to 
town, Minister Dubois will ask your help regarding a matter, which will lead 
to the restaurant being opened and run by his granddaughter, Regina.

=============================================
[A02] What is the purpose of the restaurant?
=============================================

The café's aim is to serve the food of Apicius, a deceased former chef of High 
Lagaard who, due to the harsh climate of the city being unsuitable for growing 
crops, created food using the ingredients found in the Yggdrasil Labyrinth. 
The citizens of the town enjoyed his cuisine, due to the supernatural effects 
it would imbue them with. Due to his secretive nature, however, his recipes 
were lost upon his passing until recently, though they are still decoded.

The player's goal is to gather the ingredients hinted at within each recipe 
and recreate them, with Regina serving the food to the player for a small fee. 
Each meal has its own unique beneficial effect that will last until 
overwritten (with a few exceptions).

If you've played previous entries in the series, this system is akin to the 
cooking system in Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan and the 
Guildkeeper's Prepare option in Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl.

=============================================
[A03] What can I do here?
=============================================

When the game begins, a limited number of options are available in the 
restaurant. As you complete more recipes, however, new features will open up. 
Grimoire Trading and Recycling, for instance, are available after developing a 
district.

*	Restaurant
o	Develop Dishes: Create new recipes.
o	Prepare: Remake a previously created recipe. The effect of a 
currently active recipe can also be canceled here.
o	Advertise: Market your prepared recipes towards a particular 
district of town to make money. Later in the game, the Gourmet 
King can appear, which will allow you to sell any food to him, 
causing anyone in the district to eat what you purchase. Festivals 
have a similarly positive effect.
o	Town Development: Using your en to develop a district further in 
order to increase the number of customers at your restaurant and 
obtain better Grimoire Stones from your guests.
o	Ingredient Storage: Your inventory of ingredients.
o	Guild House: Switches to the Guild House menu.

*	Guild House
o	Grimoire Stones:
?	Equip Grimoire: Menu for equipping Grimoire Stones to your 
characters.
?	Grimoire Trade: Unlocked after developing the town. Trades 
Grimoire stones with NPCs or EOU guild members that visit 
the restaurant.
?	Grimoire Recycle: Unlocked after developing the town. Weighs 
Grimoires together to discover their total value before 
trading for a new stone.
o	Manage Items: Menu for storing and withdrawing items, equipment, 
and materials. 
o	Manage Guild Cards: Space for your Guild Card and other cards 
whose QR Codes you've scanned.
o	Data Settings:
?	Read QR Code: Used for scanning a Guild Card. 
?	StreetPass Settings: Allows you to obtain Guild Cards from 
people whose 3DS' you pass provided they have EO2U.
?	Invite Guild: Creates new guests for Grimoire Trading by 
using extra data from EOU: The Millennium Girl.
o	Talk: A brief chat with Regina that changes each time you reach a 
new floor.
o	Return: Switches to Restaurant menu.

number of steps in the Labyrinth!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, I have made Hi Lagaar Coffee!

Flavio: Wow, that's incredible...! It's coffee, but without the use of coffee 
beans!

Arianna: The aroma is so soothing... It is amazing that you were able to make 
this with that technique!

Regina: Yeah, that's a bold process that only Apicius could come up with. Come 
to think of it... I have heard that Apicius' cooking gave people mystical 
powers. It might be useful to your adventures, so why don't you have a drink 
before going out?

Chloe: Do you know any more recipes? I want to make more food...

Regina: Yeah. Currently three recipes are known. Could you help me develop the 
menu? If you just bring me the ingredients, I'll take it from there.

~Prepare~

Regina: Just drinking this makes you vigorous, they say. Why don't you have 
some?

=============================================

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

["Snail cooking...?"]

Arianna: Oh, no, Sir Siegfried. This is called escargot.

Flavio: Nah-ah. The escargot I know isn't this big!

["That looks good!"]

Flavio: ...Huh!? But don't you think it's a bit too big?

Arianna: Sir Flavio, this is an established dish known as escargot.

Flavio: Well... yeah, but...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: You didn't do your homework, kid. The bigger they are, the more 
valuable they get.

Flavio: ...Huh? R-Really?

Regina: ...Well, I can see how first timers would be hesitant. But the taste 
is exquisite. It is stronger and richer than normal escargot.

Chloe: I can't wait.

Arianna: I would love to have this as well. I have not eaten escargot since 
I've left my homeland.

["I want to eat too."]

Regina: Of course, go right ahead. I'll add this to my menu, so you can 
order it whenever you want.

["......"]

Regina: ...Ah, fine then. I'll cut it up for Arianna, Bertrand... and 
Chloe. You and Flavio don't need it, right? I'll add this to the menu so 
you can order it whenever you want. ...Hmph.

Flavio: *sigh*

~Prepare~

Regina: The bigger the escargot, the more flavorful it is. Now, bon appétit.

Effect: Max TP ? (Max TP has increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Bertrand: Hmmm... Looks normal to me.

Regina: ...Don't judge Apicius' recipes just by looks alone. It's hard to make 
such springy texture with just rye.

Flavio: Springy rye bread!? Isn't rye bread supposed to be hard?

Chloe: I ate it a lot when traveling with Trand. Because it's hard and not 
tasty, it gets thrown in the bottom of the sack... and becomes even harder.

["But rye bread is so good."]

Chloe: Then, you eat a bunch. I'll eat a bunch of meat for you.

Flavio: You plan on eating even more meat than now?

["That's a waste."]

Chloe: ...We ate it in the end. My jaw hurt.

Bertrand: It was good for me. Because the quiet you became even quieter.

["You should've used it as a weapon."]

Chloe: ...? What are you saying? You can't make food into weapons.

Regina: Exactly. It's not a forgivable thing to handle food in such a 
disrespectful manner.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: *giggle* So rye bread is a food full of memories for you two.
I wish I had something like that!

Flavio: ...Was this touching at all?

Regina: Putting memories aside... I'll add this to the menu, so order it again 
when you feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: It's made in a way, so it doesn't become hard over time. It's springy 
and fluffy at any time.

=============================================

Book: Western Food 1

Ingredients: 4x Venison; 2x Asparagus

Price: 99en

Memo (Hint): Grill thick cut red meat on a hot iron plate, and garnish with 
vegetable sprouts.

Memo (Description): Tender even when cut thick, the deer steak goes well with 
asparagus.

Effect: Recover HP Each Turn (You now recover HP at the end of each turn!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Chloe: ...Bone in. Superb!

Arianna: Oh... How wonderful. I absolutely love venison!

["Is it that good?"]

Arianna: Yes! It is tender and lean... It is very easy to eat, wouldn't 
you agree?

Flavio: Hmmm...? I've had deer one time before, but was it THAT good?

["You mentioned that before, too."]

Arianna: Oh... You remembered.

Flavio: How could we forget? The first thing you say after seeing that 
giant, mean-looking monster is, "It looks delicious!"

Bertrand: Haha, really? Sounds like she's as gluttonous as Chloe.

Arianna: B-but... deer IS quite delicious.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Arianna's right. If you prepare it properly, venison is a very 
flavorful meat. But well... You can taste that for yourself. I'll add it to 
the menu so order it again if you like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: People like the bone in. It looks appetizing... but moreover, it 
tastes fabulous.

sprouts.

Effect: Ail/Bind Recovery ? (Your natural recovery rate from ailments and 
binds has increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Bertrand: This is... quite an aggressive look.

Regina: Yes. Apicius' ideas never cease to amaze me.

["...How did it end up like this?"]

Regina: Hm? I simply followed the recipe.

Flavio: ...Er, I think what Siegfried is trying to say isn't that...

["I'm surprised for sure."]

Regina: Right? Preparing the roller like this was shocking for me, too.

Flavio: Er, isn't there something to be more surprised about...?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Umm... Is it edible like this? Our eyes just met...

Chloe: Just don't mind it.

Arianna: ...I-I do mind it.

Chloe: Fine. I'll hide the eyes with leaves.

Regina: The rice stuffed in the stomach is delicious too, so be sure to have 
it.

Arianna: The... The stomach...?

["Are you okay?"]

Arianna: I... don't think so. I feel a bit sorry for it...

Chloe: I feel more sorry if it's not eaten after being prepared. Heck, 
we were the ones who hunted it.

Arianna: Y-you're right, but...

["You can do it, Arianna!"]

Arianna: I-I'll do my best. Dame Regina's cooking is delicious, so I 
must eat it...!

Flavio: ...You're right. Her food is good, plus the effects are 
useful... If we think about it that way...

Chloe: You guys think too much.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...Hrm, there are problems with the presentation, huh? But this is 
Apicius' will. I'll add this to the menu so order it again.

~Prepare~

Regina: Surprised by the looks, then surprised by the taste. ...Yep, that's 
how cuisine should be.

=============================================
[D06] Citron Owl Bowl

Memo (Description): A rice bowl containing crispy poultry mixed with a tangy 
sauce.

Effect: Poison RES ??? (Resistance to poison has greatly increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Arianna: My, this is quite unique. The side dish is sitting directly on the 
rice?

Bertrand: A donburi is what they call it. The pub has a few too, remember?

Arianna: ...But wouldn't the taste of the side dishes mix with the taste of 
the rice? Oh, I get it now! You're supposed to eat just the food on the top 
first!

["Eat how you like to."]

Arianna: How I like...? Is there another way to eat this?

Bertrand: It's not a dish you need to be very proper for. Just as 
Siegfried says, eat whatever way floats your boat.

["You eat it with the rice."]

Arianna: ...? Is that not improper table manners?

Bertrand: It's not a dish you need to be very proper for. Well, it's 
probably best to eat it in whichever way you like.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: That's right. Eat how you like, when you like. That's the best. I want 
to eat this now... *nom* *nom* ...So I'm eating... *nom* *nom* ...first.

Regina: Don't try to justify pre-meal snacking! Have the least of manners!

Arianna: Wh-What is correct...?

Flavio: Somewhere down the middle...?

Regina: *sigh* I'll add this to the menu, so order it again whenever you want. 
Please no snacking then.

~Prepare~

Regina: The same ingredients cooked another way wouldn't give you poison 
resistance. ...Apicius' recipes are a work of art.

=============================================
[D07] Seared Deer
=============================================

Book: Chinese Food 1

Ingredients: 4x Venison; 2x Rock Salt; 2x Citron

Price: 97en

Memo (Hint): 

Memo (Description): Seared slowly with fire, the salt and citron bring out the 
flavor.

Effect: Block Bind once 3T (When battle begins, you can now block a bind once 
for 3 turns!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Chloe: Thick cut. Thick cut meat. That is... very good.

["What a splendid cut!"/"Meat should always be thick!"/"A carnival!"]

Chloe: Mr. Sword, you get it. Meat is awesome.

Flavio: Yep... It really gets me pumped up seeing such a thick cut!

Bertrand: ...You're all too excited.

Arianna: But still, this color... Is this not raw?

Regina: Don't worry, it's been cooked. The beautiful coloration is created by 
slowly broiling it. And the taste is exquisite.

Arianna: A rare, thick-cut venison steak...! It is truly delicious...!

Bertrand: ...Even you're excited, huh? Young'uns sure like meat...

Arianna: I-I mean, it's venison! It's so delicious. Sir Bertrand, perhaps you 
simply have yet to taste true venison!

Bertrand: Yeah, yeah, I never had it.

Regina: Arianna, there's no need for words. We'll have him taste true venison 
right now.

Arianna: Yes, Dame Regina! Please do!

Bertrand: Ugh, what a pain...

~Prepare~

Regina: This is a dish to show off the merits of venison. ...Care to try?

=============================================

Memo (Hint): Rub and wash a smelly monster, then dry with root skin and boil 
to extract.

Memo (Description): A unique-smelling tea that isn't too bitter.

Effect: Blind RES ??? (Resistance to blind has greatly increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Flavio: Ooh, that smells good. ...Hm? But was there anything this color among 
the ingredients we handed over?

Regina: Drying the giant bud and extracting the flavor makes this color.

Flavio: Huh!? This... is from that smelly monster!? But, it's not smelly!

Chloe: It's actually refreshing. I want to smell it forever...

Regina: After washing it with salt water and drying it, wrapping it with the 
skin of sugar beets gives it this scent. ...I was wary about it too, at first, 
but Apicius really was amazing.

Arianna: I wonder how he thought about changing the smell...

["Trial and error."]

Regina: ...You may be right. He is called genius, but it is most likely 
an answer he reached through hard work.

["Genius inspiration."]

Regina: ...Inspiration, huh? It is true that you can't reach new heights 
without it.

["Whatever, it's just good."]

Regina: What do you mean "whatever."? There's a better way to put it, 
you know... But thinking about it, the process of cooking may not be 
important to those on the eating end.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: Well, enough with the complex talk. Can I get another cup? I'm 
thirsty.

Regina: That'll be extra. I'll add it to the menu, so order it there.

Bertrand: Tch, don't be such a spoilsport.

~Prepare~

Regina: Smells completely different from the original ingredients, huh? I have 
to say, cooking can be deep.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Arianna: Oh, we could hardly... wait?

Flavio: Um, you know, this... Let me ask just in case. ...What is this?

Regina: Hm? I thought I told you the name before. It's a butterfly tsukudani.

Bertrand: It was a bit unexpected to have the name reflect the dish in its 
entirety.

Chloe: But the glaze is pretty. Shiny, crispy, tasty-looking.

Regina: Oh? You have good eyes, Chloe. Cooking something of this size to be 
evenly amber all around is the key to Apicius' recipe.

["It looks hard to eat."]

Regina: You don't have to worry. Apicius made this recipe with that in 
mind. I'll show you how to eat it. First, cut the body into manageable 
sizes... Now there, try it out.

["It might be good."]

Regina: Not "might"; it WILL be good. I made it myself, after all. Well, 
just eat it and see. First, you cut the body into manageable sizes... 
Now there, try it out.

["I'd prefer a different ingredient."]

Regina: You don't get it. This technique only works with the shape of 
the butterfly. It wouldn't work with other ingredients.

Flavio: ...Why did you put so much effort into trying to cook this, 
Apicius...?

Regina: You guys are really picky, aren't you? Give it a try and you'll 
see. First, you cut the body into manageable sizes... Now there, try it 
out.

[Dialogue merges here.]

["Thanks, but no thanks."]

Regina: ...Do you not trust my skill?

(Loops back to the previous choice.)

["A man must have courage!"]

Regina: Good.

You bite the bullet, close your eyes, and throw the food into your mouth! 
...... ......! It might not fit everyone, but the refreshing taste of the 
venomfly matches with the sweet, salty flavoring!

Flavio: S-So... How was it, Siegfried...?

["It's delicious!"]

Flavio: R-Really...?

["Eat it yourself."]

Flavio: Y-You're not trying to fool me, are you!?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: It's not anything to be up in arms about. This size might be rare, 
but there are regions that eat insects.
 
Flavio: W-Well, I've heard about that before back at Midgard... but seeing it 
for the first time is something else.

Arianna: I do agree... Seeing this has surprised me a bit- No, quite a lot.

Flavio: I know, right!?

Arianna: It surprise me to see those we were fighting becoming so delicious-
looking!

Flavio: THAT'S what you're surprised about!?

Chloe: I get you can eat the body, but what about the wings? Looks hard to 
eat.

Regina: You sprinkle them over rice. ...See? Like this.

Arianna: My, that is quite pretty. And the flavoring seems like it would go 
well with rice!

Flavio: You guys aren't reluctant at all...

["I'm with you, Flavio."]

Flavio: Yeah, huh... We never had something like this at Midgard, 
huh...?

["Open up a bit, Flavio."]

Flavio: Am I the odd one out...?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so feel free to order it whenever you feel 
like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Cooking something this size to an even amber color is something only 
Apicius could pull off. Enjoy it.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. I've finished it.

Bertrand: Ooh, I eat cartilage a lot at bars, but this one has a different 
texture to it.

Regina: ...Hey, I didn't say you can eat it yet. Keep your hands out of the 
dish.

Bertrand: Hm? It's gonna be eaten anyway, so what's the big deal?

Regina: That's not the point. This is a question of manners!

Arianna: Wh-What should we do, Sir Siegfried? At this rate, they're going to 
get into an argument...

[Calm Bertrand down.]

Bertrand: Yeah, yeah, the old man's wrong. You happy, now?

Regina: ...What's with this man? This attitude at this age... How did he 
get through life?

Chloe: ...You're too harsh on Trand. He may be rude, but it's just 
because he's too old to fix it.

Flavio: That's not helping! Ugh, just don't say anything! A-Anyway! I'm 
starting to get hungry now... *wink* *wink*

[Calm Regina down.]

Regina: Did I say anything that was wrong? He's acting like this because 
you pamper him.

Chloe: ...You're too harsh on Trand. He may be rude, but it's just 
because he's too old to fix it.

Flavio: That's not helping! Ugh, just don't say anything! A-Anyway! I'm 
starting to get hungry now... *wink* *wink*

["Let's just eat."]

Regina: Mm... You're right. The food'll get cold at this rate.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: This deep-fried meat... It is called "karaage"? Do we squeeze this 
citrus and eat it?

[Squeeze the lemon all over.]

Chloe: ! Siegfried, that's evil. The crunchiness is now soggy.

Bertrand: Come on, that doesn't matter anyway.

Chloe: That doesn't doesn't matter. It's a very important matter.

Arianna: Dame Chloe is so empathic about this... It must truly be a 
grave matter.

Flavio: Er, no, it's really nothing at all. These over here don't have 
any juice on them, Chloe, so eat them.

["Don't squeeze that lemon."]

Chloe: Yeah, the karaage will get soggy, so we don't need that.

Flavio: You think? I like the refreshing taste it gives.

Chloe: That's evil.

Arianna: ...I see this is a deeply rooted debate.

Bertrand: They just can't understand each other because the subject's so 
stupid. That's all.

Arianna: I see... That is quite deep!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Alright, I'll add this to the menu, so order it again whenever you 
feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Make sure to talk it out when squeezing the citron on it. ...I don't 
want you fighting over something so stupid.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done. ...But the MVP this time is her.

Arianna: Yes! I worked very hard to make it. Now everyone, please eat.

Flavio: Yokan, huh... I've never seen one before. Is it sweet? Well, it does 
look delicious! I like walnuts after all.

Arianna: Sir Siegfried, please have some as well.

["I can't wait to eat!"]

You take the yokan and bring it to your mouth... ...The sweetness is 
balanced with the saltiness of the walnuts. However... you should pair 
it with some bitter tea.

Arianna: Um... How is... the taste?

["It's delicious."]

Arianna: I'm glad you like it...!

Regina: Hmph, it's only natural. I'll add it to the menu, so order 
it whenever you feel like it.

["It's okay."]

Arianna: So I need to train more? ...I'll do my best!

Regina: That's the spirit, Arianna. Making picky eaters enjoy your 
food is one of the charms of being a chef. I'll add it to the 
menu, so order it whenever you feel like it.

["......"]

Arianna: Sir Siegfried? Did it... um, not suit your tastes...?

Chloe: But it's so good. Chloe will eat Siegfried's then. Any 
objections?

Arianna: ...I see. Um, if it is too much for you to eat, please 
give it to Dame Chloe then...

Regina: So everyone has different tastes... Well, it's not my 
place to tell you what you like. I'll add it to the menu, so order 
it whenever you feel like it.

["I'm not a fan of sweets..."]

Arianna: Huh... You do not like sweet things? ...Very well! If you pour 
this sauce on it, it will no longer be sweet, so you can eat that!

Regina: H-Hey! He's not going to eat that either, so stop it!

Arianna: But it might turn out to be delicious.

Regina: Listen, Arianna. Pouring tomato sauce on a yokan will not make 
it better!

Bertrand: Ack... Just thinking about it makes my stomach cringe.

Regina: I'll add the PLAIN yokan to the menu, so order it whenever you 
feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: It's an arrangement of an eastern candy. Supposedly, it's said to 
bring good luck.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Sorry to keep you waiting. It's done.

Chloe: ...! Meat, simmering. Simmering, meat!

Flavio: ...You really do sink your teeth into things regarding meat, huh?

Chloe: What are you saying, Flavio? What am I supposed to sink my teeth into 
if it's not meat?

["Exactly."]

Chloe: Chloe don't mistake meat.

["Sink them into vegetables, too."]

Chloe: ......

Bertrand: Hey, don't ignore him. Your mother told you the same thing, 
right?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: *sigh* When did she become such a meat fanatic?

Regina: A perfectly unbalanced diet, huh. Well, in that case... Listen up, 
Chloe. The true worth of this hotpot is not in the meat, but in the 
vegetables.

Chloe: !?

Regina: Those who don't eat the vegetables are unworthy of this pot.

["But they're still vegetables."]

Regina: Yes, they're still vegetables, but they have their own 
strengths. You just don't know them.

["Then I'm worthy."]

Regina: Siegfried has spoken. Chloe, how about you?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: ...... ...I'll become worthy of this pot.

Regina: Good.

Flavio: ...Wow. Chloe followed orders.

Arianna: Dame Regina, you're incredible!

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so when she is worthy, go ahead and order 
it.

~Prepare~

Regina: The meat compliments the vegetables, and the vegetables compliment the 
meat... Taste the best of both worlds.

Memo (Description): The boiled plant and savory leg meat complement each

Effect: Gather Amount ? (You will obtain more amounts of materials when 
gathering!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go. It turned out pretty well.

Arianna: My...! It has quite a strong bite.

Bertrand: Hmmm... So food is stuffed into this fanged vine's mouth? It's a 
basket, so even the meat juice won't drip out. Interesting.

Chloe: This makes me happy. The insides spill out all the time for me.

["Good for you."]

Chloe: Yeah. I can now eat all of it. I'm really happy.

["I spill a lot, too."]

Chloe: Sandwiches always spill... But with this sandwich, you and me are 
happy.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: H-Hmmmm... If you put it that way, it's not a bad sandwich... I guess. 
But since it looks pretty much exactly as the monster we fight all the time... 
it's... kinda...

Arianna: Hmm, it is true that depending on how you look at it, you're eating a 
sandwich along with the monster, huh?

Flavio: Er... That's not the positive opinion I meant...

["You're being too sensitive."]

Flavio: No one ever told me that while we were back at Midgard...

["I understand that..."]

Flavio: R-Right? I'm not the crazy one, huh?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Being able to enjoy the presentation is one of the charms of Apicius' 
recipes, but... it might not be for everyone. I'll keep tabs on the customers' 
reactions. This'll go on the menu, so order it whenever you like.

~Prepare~

Regina: A sandwich that never spills its ingredients... Hmm, Apicius never 
ceases to amaze me.

Memo (Description): Cooked for a long time, the ingredients are tender, and 
the soup is strong.

Effect: Walk to Build Force (Your Force gauge now increases after taking a 
certain number of steps in the Labyrinth!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go. It turned out pretty well.

Bertrand: Heh, a pout-au-feu. That's nostalgic; I used to eat those all the 
time... But isn't that a lot of meat in there?

Chloe: What are you saying, Trand? The more meat, the better. In fact, these 
mushrooms should be meat, too.

["That's too much."]

Chloe: You're wrong. There's no such thing as too much meat.

Regina: Sorry to butt in after you've made your statement, but there is 
such a thing as too much. Because there are vegetables, the meat tastes 
better. That goes the same vice versa.

["We don't need veggies."]

Chloe: Exactly.

Regina: I'll refute that. Because there are vegetables, the meat tastes 
better, and vice versa. It's about balance.

["Heck, I don't need meat."]

Chloe: ...!? Siegfried, are you insane?

Regina: Oh, you prefer vegetables? I thought that most explorers were 
meat lovers like Chloe... I'll remember that. But that's the problem, 
too. The vegetables taste better because there is meat, and vice versa. 
It's about balance.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: ...Is that true?

Regina: That's true.

Flavio: Hmmm, you really need to think about a lot of stuff when cooking, huh? 
I just think it's all good as long as the taste is good.

Regina: Well, it is the job of a cook to think.

Arianna: *giggle* Dame Regina's cooking is always so delicious... We cannot 
help but let you handle it.

Regina: I... I see. Then I'll take care of it. I'll add this to the menu, so 
order it again if you like.

~Prepare~

Regina: This country is cold, so you should warm up before heading out.

Effect: Rare Enemy Rate ? (The chances of rare enemies appearing has 
increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go. It turned out pretty well.

Arianna: ...? This is a bit different from the pudding I know.

Flavio: Is it? I've never seen pudding before.

Arianna: Yes. To start, the ingredients are quite different as well. First, 
you would mix flour with beef tallow, then-

Flavio: Hold on, there! We're talking about sweets here, aren't we?

Arianna: Yes, we are. Did I say something wrong?

["You did."]

Flavio: You don't use beef tallow in sweets, right? Wouldn't you use 
butter?

Arianna: Huh? But... in my country, that was normal.

["Keep going."]

Arianna: Yes, I shall do so. You then add eggs, sugar, some brandy, and 
dry fruits... Mix them all together and boil. Then, when it's cooked, 
you hang it in a well-ventilated place-

Flavio: H-Hang!?

Arianna: Yes, you hang them? For about... a month?

Flavio: ...Arianna, you're not trying to fool us, are you?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Don't be so suspicious of her. Arianna's recipe does exist. This 
recipe was arranged so that the pudding can be made with much more ease.

Bertrand: I see... The stickiness of the original isn't bad, but this is 
pretty good in its own right.

Chloe: Soft and tasty.

Arianna: Huh...!? U-Um... Where are... our servings?

Flavio: I was wondering why you two weren't entering the conversation. Why're 
you eating without us!?

Regina: ...I'll cut some more slices for you guys. This'll go on the menu, and 
I see that some of you already like it, so order it again.

~Prepare~

Regina: Apicius rearranged this dish to take less time than it normally does. 
Isn't it great?

Memo (Description): The deer meat is stewed until tender, making this spicy 
dish flavorful.

Effect: Max HP ? (Max HP has increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go. It turned out pretty well.

Flavio: It's curry! I freaking love this stuff! Oh man, this smells awesome!

Bertrand: I wonder who's excited...

Arianna: *giggle* Sir Flavio really must love curry. I am... not very fond of 
spicy foods...

["Pour some honey on it."]

Arianna: I see. No matter how spicy the curry may be, it must bow to the 
power of honey!

Flavio: Er, no! Maybe if you were still cooking it, but now? It'd just 
be crappy curry!

Arianna: Huh, is that so!?

["Add an egg."]

Arianna: Add an egg? Will that make it less spicy?

Flavio: Technically, no. More like it makes it easier to eat. It makes 
it pleasant and cools down the roux to a balanced heat.

Arianna: I see...!

["Suck it up and eat it."]

Arianna: Oh... I suppose I have no other choice.

Flavio: If it's that hard for you, why don't you rest your tongue every 
so often with something cold and sweet like lassi? You don't have to 
force yourself to eat it so quickly. Just do it at your own pace!

Arianna: I see... That might be okay then!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...I'm surprised. You're pretty knowledgeable with curry.

Flavio: Well, I was raised in a place where I could look up things I liked as 
much as I wanted.

Chloe: Midgard Library is incredible. You can become a genius of curry.

["Isn't that awesome?"]

Chloe: Yes, that's awesome. I want to look up meat.

Arianna: Then I would like to look up sweets!

Bertrand: To you guys, the world-famous temple of knowledge is nothing 
but a cooking class, eh?

["Not really."]

Chloe: Huh, not really? Midgard Library is nothing, then...

Bertrand: Those are some bold words to be throwing at the temple of 
knowledge.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Hrm, I'd like to visit Midgard Library one of these days... But the 
urgent duty is reproducing Apicius' recipes. I'll add this to the menu, so 
feel free to order it whenever you feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Despite its looks, it's a bit spicy. ...I'll be here to pour you as 
much water as you want.

heat.

Memo (Description): A pot full of flavorful meat in an incredibly hot soup.

Effect: Ailment Damage ? (Damage taken from poison, curse, and fear has been 
halved!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well.

Bertrand: Well, this one sure makes an impact.

Flavio: B-But, it looks like it's not use directly in the dish, so it's 
okay... I guess?

Chloe: This is interesting. Is this to retain the heat of the dish?

Regina: Yeah. Temperature is part of the taste, after all. I can keep the 
ideal flavor at this temperature. Being able to serve hot foods hot, this 
technology is great news to chefs.

Arianna: Temperature is part of the taste... I've never thought of that 
before. I cannot eat very hot food, though... But I shall try my best!

["Good luck, Arianna."]

Arianna: Yes, I shall challenge this hot dish!

["Don't strain yourself."]

Arianna: No. In order to answer Dame Regina's hard work making this 
dish... I shall overcome my weakness!

Bertrand: This is a big ordeal for a single dish...

Regina: I'm glad you think that way, but if it's your constitution, then- Hey! 
Don't stuff your mouth like that!

Arianna: ...! ......! ......!? It... It's... It's spicy! It may be hot, but 
it's even spicier! I-It's hot... and spicy... It's spicy and hot!

Regina: It's because you stuffed your mouth like that. Couldn't you tell it 
was spicy by looking at it...?

Arianna: It... It was red... But tomato soup isn't spicy...! I-Ich ho 
shpaishee... Wawer...!

Regina: It looks like temperature was the least of your problems...

Flavio: I didn't know you couldn't eat spicy things. It's so good, though.

Arianna: I cannot believe you can eat such foods with a straight face...

Regina: I'll put this on the menu, but make sure to take care when ordering 
for Arianna. ...I'll change it so that every person can adjust the level of 
spiciness.

~Prepare~

Regina: I'll adjust the spiciness to each person, so swallow your pride and 
tell me what you think, okay?

ailment once for 3 turns!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well.

Flavio: Whoa...! This smells good! And it looks normal!

Regina: ...What. You have a problem with what my cooking usually looks like?

Flavio: E-Er, that's not what I meant... Right, Siegfried?

["I have a problem."]

Regina: ...Ho-ho. I'll remember that.

Flavio: You pissed her off... You're too honest, Siegfried.

["I don't have a problem."]

Regina: Hmph, of course. Apicius arranged his recipes to entertain by 
looks as well.

Flavio: ...You're amazing.

["...I can't tell you."]

Regina: That sounds suspicious. ...Very well.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: Regina. More.

Regina: ...You always eat so fast. Are you even tasting the flavor?

Chloe: I'm tasting it. The fat of the meat and the tanginess of the sweet-and-
sour sauce, absolute harmony. Chloe likes the sweet-and-sour sauce. And the 
spices are great. The brisk texture and scent are unique.

Regina: Hmm, you actually have sharp taste buds. The strong smell is thanks to 
the forest vegetables. Because of the harsh living conditions and various 
beings, there are a lot of strong-smelling plants.

Bertrand: You're right. There actually are a lot of smells in the forest. But 
I've heard that they're more apt for medicine than food.

Regina: When prepared normally, the other ingredients lose to the strong 
scent. This leek here needs special preparation or else it can't be eaten.

Arianna: *giggle*

Regina: ...What is it, Arianna? You shouldn't look at someone's face and just 
laugh.

Arianna: Ah, please excuse me. I was just thinking about how much fun you look 
like you're having talking about cooking.

Regina: Having... fun...? Was I looking like that?


["You were."]

Regina: ...Shoot.

["You weren't."]

Regina: I-I see. Phew...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Why? I like the Dame Regina who smiles while talking about food.

Regina: D-Don't say things like that. Anyway, I'll add this to the menu, so 
order it when you like.

Chloe: ...Regina, are you embarrassed?

Regina: I'm not embarrassed!

~Prepare~

Regina: The customers say it goes well with rice. Why don't you order extra?

Memo (Description): A candy with moderate sweetness matched with the texture

Effect: Leg Bind RES ??? (Resistance to leg bind has greatly increased!)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well. I had 
Arianna help out again. I thank you.

Arianna: Oh, no, it was fun for me, too. The kitchen at Ambrosia is full of 
utensils!

Flavio: Hmmm... It looks small, but it's heavy. Looks like this'll be quite 
the eats.

Arianna: *giggle* Please enjoy!

Flavio: I will!

Chloe: *munch**munch* This is good. It's not meat, but Chloe approves.

Flavio: Same here. The warm sweetness of the chestnuts is great.

Bertrand: Moon cakes get their name from being shaped after the moon. In one 
region, it's tradition to eat these while gazing the moon over with friends.

Arianna: Moon over... a friend?

Bertrand: Yeah.

Arianna: Th-Then... like this? It's a bit embarrassing.

Bertrand: Uh, kid?

Flavio: Arianna, why are you eating the moon cakes while staring at Siegfried?

Arianna: Huh? But I thought you're supposed to do this? It may be rude to Sir 
Siegfried, but he is the only dear person who is always near me.

Chloe: ...... ...Then I'll look at Trand.

Flavio: ......

Chloe: ...Don't worry. You'll find someone who'll eat moon cakes for you one 
day, Flavio.

Arianna: She's right. You are a good person!

Flavio: Th-That's not what this is about! It's not that I don't have anyone; 
it's that there's no such tradition!

Regina: ...If you really want to, I could eat one for you.

Flavio: ...Oh!?

Regina: ...Don't worry. I was joking. Bertrand said moon "gazing", not 
"mooning over". You eat these while viewing the moon. Apicius took a hint from 
that tradition and created his own version. Alright then, I'll add this to the 
menu, so order this again.

~Prepare~

Regina: They look small, but... they're fattening. Eat with discretion.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well.

Arianna: My, how cute...! It is a pretty color.

Chloe: The texture is interesting. Jiggly, glossy... and sometimes lumpy.

Arianna: W-Wait, Dame Chloe! You must first enjoy the presentation of the 
cooking... Oh, it's already a mess...

Chloe: It's the same when you eat it. I don't mind the looks.

["I agree."]

Chloe: Right?

["Looks are part of the taste."]

Chloe: That's a lie. You can make something pretty, but if it can't be 
eaten, it can't be eaten. Chloe... has been fooled before.

Bertrand: ...Oh yeah. You bit into a bar of soap, saying it looked like 
cheese, huh?

Chloe: That soap is an unforgivable crime.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: But... Dame Regina worked so hard to make it pretty, I wanted to eat 
it tidily.

Regina: ...You don't have to mind it that much. Losing its shape is the fate 
of all dishes. The problem is you, Chloe. Your pre-meal snacking is the issue.

Chloe: Chloe eats when Chloe wants.

Flavio: Wha- Hey, you're eating too much! Leave some for me, will you!?

Chloe: Survival of the fittest.

Flavio: Hey, don't take the plate and run! Wait!

Regina: Don't run in the restaurant! *sigh* I added this to the menu, so next 
time, eat with a little more composure.

~Prepare~

Regina: Dragon fruits don't ripen after being picked, so the timing is 
difficult. ...I have to thank you for stocking them.

instantly using a hot rock.

Memo (Description): The dish is not only delicious, but it is fun to see the 
pot instantly boil.

Effect: Buff Item Effect: Line (During battle, the effects of Bravant and 
Stonard are now increased for the entire line!)

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well.

Chloe: Ooh...?

Bertrand: ...I was doubtful as to what use that would be in cooking, but... I 
see, that's a daring way to use it.

Arianna: Sir Apicius was one incredible person. I never imagined one could eat 
stones...

Flavio: I was just thinking... Can we use this softening technique in battle!?

["Great idea!"]

Flavio: Right!?

Regina: ...Sorry to burst your bubble, but you don't actually eat this 
stone.

["Think, guys."]

Regina: Siegfried's right. The stone isn't edible.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: Then why is it there?

Regina: When using the stone to heat the dish, the results differ from other 
methods. For instance, cooking sweet potatoes on hot rocks gives you a better 
taste than an on open fire, right?

Flavio: Oh, you're right! I get it now.

Regina: And after comparing, I've found that this strange stone makes the food 
more tender and flavorful than a normal rock. Even Apicius noted that he 
didn't know the reasoning behind it, though...

Bertrand: That doesn't change the fact we're eating something we know nothing 
about.

Regina: But I guarantee the taste. I'll add this to the menu, so feel free to 
order it whenever you feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Cooking using this stone makes the meat even more tender. ...I'm not 
sure how though.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you all waiting. It turned out pretty well.

Flavio: Ooh! There's a lot in here! When a soup is full of ingredients, it 
feels like a luxury.

Chloe: A pile of food. I'm happy.

["Let's pile more on."]

Flavio: Pile more on... That has a nice ring to it. Those were words we 
never could say back at the orphanage.

Regina: ...Let me warn you that if you pile on any more I'll have to 
raise the price.

Flavio: Ack, that's not good!

Bertrand: There's plenty enough on here, so just make do with it. You 
young'uns are so full of energy, it makes me jealous. But, still... 
There's so much, yet I can eat it like nothing.

["This is a bit much..."]

Chloe: Siegfried, don't eat much?

Arianna: I agree... With this much in front of me, I feel overwhelmed.

Chloe: Arianna, too...!? I don't understand.

Bertrand: Your stomach's too peppy. But still, this soup... Kid, 
Siegfried. There's no need to fret. Even I can finish this.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Oh... You're right. It is a gentle taste.

Regina: I stewed a lot of ingredients that warm you up, so it's even better on 
cold days. I'll add this to the menu, so feel free to order it whenever you 
feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: You should warm up before going. I've upgraded your portions.

Arianna: My, my... They look so cute. And delicious, as well.

Flavio: Ooh...! Candied chestnuts! I love the way they look like treasure.

Bertrand: But it leaves the mouth a bit dry. Hey lady, some tea.

Regina: I'm not a maid. You have your own legs.

Bertrand: It's a pain to get up.

Regina: ......

["I want some tea, too."]

Regina: You're the same as this man? *sigh* It seems the male members of 
Chevalier all lack manners.

Flavio: Wha- I didn't say anything, yet I was counted together...!?

["Get up, Bertrand."]

Bertrand: What, I'm beat from all the exploration. Let a man bum around 
a while in town, at least.

Chloe: Trand is bumming around even in the forest.

["I'll go make some tea."]

Bertrand: Ooh, sorry to bother you. Make sure it's hot.

Regina: ...Don't you think the reason why this man is so arrogant is 
because you're letting him?

Chloe: Uh-uh. Trand was like this before we met Siegfried.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: *giggle* I see that everyone is getting along very nicely with Dame 
Regina.

Bertrand: Yeah, we're the best of buddies. Right? Milady?

Regina: ...The man really is ill-natured. Whatever. I'll add this to the menu, 
so order it when you like. And let me warn you: the tea costs extra.

~Prepare~

Regina: I didn't use any sugar, yet this rich sweetness prevails... This is a 
dish you can only make from the forest.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ...Sorry to keep you waiting. Here you go. It turned out pretty well.

Chloe: I helped out this time.

Bertrand: Huh!? What'd the hell you do!? Your mother has told you over and 
over not to touch raw ingredients!

Flavio: The old man is getting that mad... Is Chloe's cooking THAT bad?

Arianna: Dame Chloe likes to eat, so I would assume she wouldn't make a 
blunder out of her cooking.

Bertrand: Eating and making are two different things. She thinks it's funny to 
start throwing random things into the pot.

Chloe: Trand doesn't trust Chloe at all. Trust me. Fine. Trand doesn't get to 
eat. Siegfried, wanna eat?

["...I'll eat!"]

You prepare yourself for the worst, close your eyes, and throw the dango 
into your mouth! ...... ......! The chewy and sweet dango matches well 
with the tangy sauce... It's quite delightful!

Bertrand: What!? Chloe's cooking tastes good!?

Chloe: Mm-hm! The dango that I skewered are delicious.

Arianna: Skewered...? Um, does that mean... that Dame Chloe simply 
skewered the finished dango?

Regina: ...I originally asked her to roll the dango, but that turned out 
to be quite a disaster. This is not only for you, but the prototype for 
the customers, so I limited her role to that.

Bertrand: Kid... That was a fine decision you made.

Regina: So, seeing that there's no problem with the taste, I'll add it 
to the menu. Feel free to order it whenever you feel like.

["I refuse!"]

Chloe: ...... Chloe hates Siegfried. What about you, Flavio?

Flavio: ...Er, well... I think... I'll pass, too.

Arianna: You are too cruel, everyone! Dame Chloe worked so hard to make 
them for us! If you are all going to not eat, then I shall eat them 
myself!

Chloe: Arianna... Thank you.

Arianna: ...... ......! These dango are very delicious! The sauce is 
sweet and fragrant, and the dough is chewy. This is amazing!

Chloe: Mm-hm! Arianna can have all of it.

Flavio: Huh? What about us?

Chloe: ...There's none for those who refused.

Regina: That was your own fault this time. Whenever you feel like it, 
you can order ones I made from the menu.

~Prepare~

Regina: ...Interesting sauce, huh? It tastes great hot like this, but changes 
flavors when cold, too.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Flavio: Th-This is...!

Arianna: ...I-I feel sorry for it. The poor thing is crying...

Bertrand: Before that, we didn't bring the entire carcass... Kid, where'd you 
find this?

Regina: Ha, if it can fool the people who fight it all the time, then it's a 
success. This is all an imitation. The eye is a cooked egg, see?

Chloe: ...It is. The body is... mashed potatoes?

Regina: Correct. The fish taste is a bit strong, so it matches well.

["That's amazing."]

Regina: I simply made it according to the recipe, but... it's not a bad 
feeling to hear that.

["I'd prefer it normal..."]

Regina: Well, I only made it according to the recipe. Like I mentioned 
before, Apicius' recipes entertain by looks as well. ...Hrmmm, it was 
fun to make, but is it really THAT disgusting?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: Hey, putting looks aside, this guy doesn't look very easy to eat. 
What're we supposed to do with the wings?

Regina: Oh that? You cut them off with a knife before you start eating. 
Like... this!

Arianna: Th-That looks painful...!

Regina: Hm? Y-You think so? It's just an imitation, though...

["Poor thing."]

Regina: I-I see... Even if it's fake, there are people who feel that 
way, huh?

["We're going to eat it either way..."]

Regina: ...Right?

Arianna: That's true, but because of the way it looks, I feel sorry for 
it.

Regina: I-I see... Even if it's fake, there are people who feel that 
way, huh?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I made it teary-eyed to go with the ingredients, but... should I 
arrange it to smile?

Chloe: ...Can you eat something that is smiling?

Bertrand: That kinda has its own problems...

Regina: Hrmmm... I see. It was really fun to make, though... Well, I'll see 
how the other customers think of it. It'll be on the menu, so order it any 
time you want.

~Prepare~

Regina: I did well this time, too. Recreating monsters using food... It's 
quite entertaining.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot. ...Hm? What's wrong, Chloe? 
It's rare for you to not come running in even though it's meat.

Chloe: But there's fruits on the meat. It's that tasty...?

["It's delicious."]

Chloe: ...Really?

["It must be horrible."]

Chloe: Yeah, sweet and salty. It's something to eat separately, not 
together.

["Then I'll eat all of it."]

Chloe: Huh... That's a little... no, very... ...No.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: What are you yapping about, Chloe? You eat meat the pub with 
cranberry jam and orange sauce all the time.

Chloe: ...Oh, yeah. I was too busy thinking about meat to notice that.

Flavio: That's so like you. But I've never had meat with fruit sauce before 
either until coming to High Lagaard. There might have been some at Midgard... 
but it definitely wasn't as major.

Regina: It probably has to do with the region. Still, meat and fruit go well 
together. This flitter apple especially. Grating it increases the taste, 
making it perfect for sauce.

Chloe: But...

Arianna: Dame Chloe, has there ever been a time when Dame Regina's cooking 
hasn't been delicious?

Chloe: ...No.

Arianna: Then it's okay!

Chloe: ...Alright, I'll take on this new flavor!

Flavio: Arianna's gotten used to how to handle Chloe, huh?

["I'm glad they're getting along."]

Flavio: Yeah, me too. She was a bit bad-tempered in the beginning, but 
it's nice now.

["I'm better at controlling Chloe."]

Flavio: ...Why are you trying to compete there? Alright, alright. Both 
you and Arianna are good at it. We all are.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Alright, I'll add this to the menu, so order it again whenever you 
feel like it. I'll be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: The fruit sauce and the oil of the meat work quite well with each 
other. We need to thank whoever tried this combination first.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Bertrand: Croquettes, huh? Looks tasty to me.

Chloe: Yeah... I'll eat a bunch. *chomp**chomp* ...!? Mmmmmm! Mmmmmmm!

["What's wrong, Chloe?"/"Is it good?"]

Chloe: Nnnng! *huff**huff*...*huff*...!

Regina: Chloe, don't rush it! Hot béchamel sauce is a lethal weapon!

Chloe: *gulp* You're right... It was very hot.

Regina: *sigh* You're supposed to eat meals calmly.

Chloe: I'm... sorry.

Flavio: Well, let's just say it was so good-looking, she couldn't help 
herself. It should have cooled off by now, so let's all eat.

Arianna: You're right. Then let's...

Arianna/Flavio/Bertrand: Thank you for this meal!

Flavio: Ooh! The sauce is creamy, and the crab flavor really sticks out... 
This is really good, Regina!

Arianna: I agree. I've never had such a wonderful taste, even back at home!

Bertrand: This old man's usually a small eater, but this is pretty good.

Regina: I-I see. Those words make it worth working hard making it.

Chloe: ...Where's mine?

Bertrand: You just ate yours, right?

Chloe: But it was so hot I couldn't tell what it tasted like... ...Oh, 
Siegfried!? You haven't eaten yours yet. Will you share some of yours with me?

[Give her all of it.]

Chloe: Siegfried! You're awesome, Siegfried! I'm so touched!

[Give her half.]

Chloe: Siegfried, thank you!

Arianna: *giggle* You're so kind, Sir Siegfried.

[Don't give her anything.]

Chloe: Siegfried... Meanie.

Flavio: Hey, you ate first. Siegfried isn't to blame here.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Well, I'm glad you're all enjoying it. That makes me satisfied. I'll 
add this to the menu, so if you really are in the mood for it, you can order 
it. I'll be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: ...When I first started cooking, this dish was something I avoided. I 
won't let them explode anymore.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Arianna: My, what an exciting dish, being served in its pot...!

Regina: Yeah. This is Apicius' arrangement of a foreign dish called paella.

Chloe: From here to here is mine.

Flavio: Hey, that's too much! Make it even!

Chloe: No. There's more meat from here to here.

Regina: ......

["Cut it evenly."]

Regina: ...I see you get it, Siegfried. Look, I've made plenty of it. 
The meat and vegetables are evenly distributed. So don't go hoarding 
everything, and eat properly.

Chloe: ...Ugh.

Arianna: She is right. We should all be nice to each other and eat 
together!

Regina: It would be great if you did. I'll add this to the menu, so 
order it whenever you want.

["Give me more meat, too!"]

Regina: Siegfried! You too!?

Flavio: That was asking for trouble...

Chloe: Siegfried got yelled at.

Regina: Chloe, you're the one that started this in the first place. You 
two don't get any of the food!

Chloe: ...Huh!?

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, but if you cause trouble like this 
again, I'll throw both of you out. Next time, you'll sit and eat 
properly.

Chloe: Awww...

~Prepare~

Regina: The proper way to eat this is directly from the pan. Different 
countries have different etiquette, you know.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I've finished it... I think.

Arianna: My, what an oddly shaped dish. ...I would think that a tad smaller 
portion would be easier to eat.

Bertrand: Er, is this a matter of size!?

Regina: I melted it and molded it into bite-size pieces, of course. But when I 
cooled it, it reverted to this size and shape for some reason.

["Is it okay to eat?"]

Regina: The taste is fine, but...

Flavio: Well, I trust the flavor... buuuut, that's not what he meant...

Regina: I-I know what you're getting at.

["How's it taste?"]

Regina: It tastes great, of course. It goes down smoothly, and the apple 
flavoring mixes well. I say mixes well, but...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: After chewing, swallowing, and putting it in your stomach, if you let 
your belly get cold... will it revert?

Arianna: It would be quite heavy on the stomach...

Flavio: Is that all that it'd be...?

Bertrand: Well, since she's all right, I figure we should be okay... Oh? This 
does taste good.

Flavio: Whoa, old man!? Y-You have guts...

Arianna: ...I shall also challenge this because I have faith in Dame Regina 
and Sir Apicius.

Chloe: Me too. Tasty food is not to blame.

Regina: I thank you for your consideration. Please enjoy it slowly.

~Prepare~

Regina: No matter how many times I melt and mold it, it reverts back to this 
shape. Seriously... Why?

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Chloe: I don't like the green on top. Trand, trade me for meat.

Bertrand: Yeah, yeah, go ahead and take 'em. And go ahead and leave 'em.

Arianna: Directly onto his plate... That's bad manners!

Regina: That's true, but before that... Chloe, I won't allow for fussiness 
with food.

Bertrand: Oh, let her go. It's more of a pain to try and get her to eat them.

Chloe: Greens are bitter. I don't understand why you would eat anything bitter 
outside of medicine. You understand, right, Siegfried?

["It can't be helped."]

Chloe: Yep, it can't be helped.

Regina: And how can it not be helped?

["That's not good."]

Chloe: ...Siegfried betrayed me.

Regina: That's your fault for believing in him.

["That's that. Manners are manners."]

Chloe: Manners...?

Arianna: Sir Siegfried is correct. Touching someone else's plate, 
handing food over directly from silverware to silverware... Those are 
all no-nos!

Chloe: ...O-Okay.

Bertrand: Whoa... Chloe lost to pressure.

Arianna: Sir Bertrand, you too! You are the senior here, so you must 
serve as an example!

Bertrand: ...O-Okay.

Flavio: She doesn't get angry often, but she's really scary when she 
does... I'll make sure not to upset her...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...Anyway, I'll add it to the menu. If you order it, you're eating it. 
All of it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Stretching noodles with just your hands is... quite deep. This dish 
has me interested.

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Flavio: Ooh, this is big! And tasty-looking!

Chloe: Full of meat juice.

Regina: Hey! Don't you start biting!

Flavio: But you need to eat it while it's hot, or else it's disrespectful to 
the bun, right?

Regina: Er, well, that's true, but...

Arianna: *giggle* They are stuffing themselves in such a delicious manner... 
Let us eat for ourselves, too!

Regina: ...That was it.

Arianna: Huh?

Regina: I only made two of them.

Flavio: Huh!?

Regina: I was going to cut them into pieces. I figured you'd be fine since you 
guys don't eat all that much...

Bertrand: *sigh* You guys...

Chloe: ......

Flavio: S-Sorry... I already ate it all...

["I won't forgive you."]

Flavio: I- I said- I said I was sorry!

["I won't ever forgive you."]

Flavio: Y-You're THAT mad...!?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: The grudge of food... Scary. I should know best...

Flavio: Don't forget you're being grudged right now, too!

Arianna: ...That is unfortunate.

Regina: Sorry, that's my error. I'll be sure to make one for each of you.

~Prepare~

Regina: The insides are very hot, so be careful. Burn your tongue and you 
won't be able to enjoy the taste.

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Bertrand: Huh? The egg shell's on the plate. ...It'll just get in the way.

["It makes it look better."]

Arianna: I understand, Sir Siegfried! It is quite cute, as if the food 
has spilled from the egg, right?

Bertrand: It look like a failed attempt at cracking the egg open to 
me...

Regina: How rude. And let me tell you: that shell is edible.

Bertrand: What? I've never heard of an egg shell you can eat.

["It actually can be eaten."]

Bertrand: Alright, then try eating it. And don't tell me you can't.

It may have been a joke, but your word is your word... You bite the 
bullet and break off a piece of the shell. ...... ......! It is crunchy 
and sweet!

Bertrand: Huh? It's good? Whaddya mean!? It's an egg shell!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: That is thanks to the forest ingredients. But flavoring it with the 
oil when frying makes it edible.

Chloe: ...Interesting.

Flavio: But even knowing that, it still takes a lot of courage to eat it...

Regina: Ha. Once you taste it, you won't have that problem. I'll add it to the 
menu, so take your time eating.

~Prepare~

Regina: You can enjoy it up to the shell. And when you reach the shell... It's 
addicting, you know?

~Story Conversation~

Regina: A traditional eastern dish, kabutoyaki. It's quite a piece of work.

Arianna: ...Kabuto...yaki?

Regina: Around the duchy we tend to throw this part away, but in the hands of 
Apicius, it turns into a delicacy.

Flavio: I don't really get it... but I can tell that Apicius was a great man.

Arianna: I see... Kabutoyaki... We do not have a tradition of cooking those in 
my country. Sir Siegfried, what do you think?

["Sounds delicious."]

Arianna: ...I-Is that so? You seem to be very inquisitive when it comes 
to food. I am... a bit hesitant to eat a grilled kabuto beetle.

["It's a bit cruel."]

Arianna: Y-Yes, you agree, don't you! It's a bit cruel to cook a kabuto 
beetle.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Uhhh, Arianna. Just in case you didn't know, kabutoyaki is a broiled 
fish head. It has nothing to do with the insect.

Arianna: ...Huh?

Regina: ...Hm?

Arianna: O-Oh... Is that so? I completely thought it was an insect dish... 
That was quite embarrassing.

Bertrand: But still... It does look a bit cruel, either way...

Flavio: It's a fish head cooked whole, after all...

Regina: ...Despite its look, it tastes great. I'll add it to the menu, so 
order it whenever you feel like it.

~Prepare~

Regina: It isn't a part that is often consumed in High Lagaard, but those who 
love it, love it.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Bertrand: Oden? ...That like a pot-au-feu?

Regina: Well, the broth is different, but you can consider the basis the same. 
It's a traditional dish in an eastern country, but using mustard as a 
condiment is another resemblance.

Flavio: Hmm... It's interesting for dishes from completely different countries 
to have such similarities...

Regina: The way food is prepared varies greatly, but sometimes you get these 
coincidences. ...The desire to eat delicious food is something that is the 
same for all countries, huh?

["Exactly."]

Regina: I'm sure Apicius made this recipe in search of delicacies here 
in this once-poor country.

["Really?"]

Regina: I can't say for sure since I haven't been to every country, but 
I'd like to think so.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: Tasty things are good things. That's a fact. Chloe approves.

Regina: *chuckle* Thanks. Alright. I'll put this on the menu, so order it 
again. I'll be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: It's well-stewed, so the flavor is infused. Just... be careful when 
eating the egg. It's hot... Very hot.

increased!)

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished it. Eat up while it's hot.

Chloe: *huff*... *huff**huff*...

Arianna: Dame Chloe, you'll spill your food eating so hastily like that.

Chloe: But... it's so good. I'm surprised that it's so delicious, even though 
it's not meat!

Bertrand: You're right... The crab flavoring mixes with each grain of rice, 
and the pleasant-smelling tea is in complete harmony... ...Yeah, this old 
man's satisfied. Good work, kid.

Regina: That comment makes me happy, but... the both of you are spilling way 
too much.

[Warn Chloe.]

Chloe: But you're supposed to eat hot things while they're hot.

Regina: Well, you're right about that. You just need to get better at 
eating it...

[Warn Bertrand.]

Bertrand: ...Huh? Hold on a sec. Let me just finish this... *huff*... 
*huff*... *siiip*...

Regina: ......

[Spill your chazuke.]

Arianna: Huh!? Wh-What's wrong? Are you not hot? You've spilled some tea 
onto yourself.

Chloe: Siegfried, calm down.

Regina: Look who's talking, Chloe. You guys...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: ...Looking at this, it seems this dish does not do well with manners.

Regina: It's just that their way of eating it is wrong. Pouring tea onto the 
dish and eating is a custom from another culture. It isn't improper, so don't 
worry.

Arianna: I see. Then... I shall eat as well!

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so order it if you feel like eating it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Apparently, this is for times when you don't feel like eating... but 
smelling this, how can you not get hungry?

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I just finished preparing it. Could you eat it right now?

Arianna: Oh my...! All you did was shave off some ice, yet it's so soft and 
glittery...! It's like magic!

Flavio: Wow... I've never had such a cold dessert before! This is amazing!

Chloe: Cold things are expensive. This is the first time I've had it.

Bertrand: Ice that doesn't melt is something that only the forest can give ya.

Regina: Yeah. There are alchemists that sell ice, but because it's hard to 
make, there aren't many. It's hard to find in bulk.

Flavio: Ooh...! Apples are popping out here and there...! ...!?

Arianna: Sir Flavio!?

Before you can ask your friend what was wrong, your head is hit with an 
intense pain! You feel like your head is being squeezed with immense power!

Chloe's voice: Regina, hot tea. Let them have some.

Regina's voice: R-Right! I'll go get some. Siegfried, are you alright...?

You slowly drink the tea Regina prepared. Eventually, your headache recedes...

Flavio: Ugh... What was that? That really hurt...

Chloe: If you eat cold food too quickly, your body becomes cold. It causes a 
headache for some.

Regina: ...Is that so? I see. I've never really handled really cold food, so I 
didn't know about that.

["Thanks, Chloe."/ "You're knowledgeable, Chloe."]

Chloe: Mm-hm!

Regina: ...I thought you were just a meat-lover, but you really are a 
healer.

Chloe: Mm-hm again!

Bertrand: Hey Chloe, she wasn't praising you there.

["More tea please."]

Regina: ...I'm not a waitress, but I'll do it since you're still aching.

Bertrand: Girl, get me some, too.

Regina: ...I guess it can't be helped since you're eating the shaved ice 
too. Hold on, I'll bring tea for all of you.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: But why is it that Damn Chloe has eaten so much shaved ice, and yet 
hasn't gotten a headache?

Chloe: Varies from person to person?

Flavio: That's not fair... Ugh, my head...

Regina: ...I'll serve hot tea with this dish. You don't need to worry the next 
time you order it.

~Prepare~

Regina: Eat slowly with some hot tea. Eat too fast and you'll get a headache.

Arianna: Like... this?

Regina: Yeah. The venom's been removed, so you can just crunch into it. It's 
got good texture.

["I'd like to try it."]

Regina: Yeah, you can enjoy it by eating it with the pasta at the same 
time.

["...I'm a bit hesitant."]

Regina: I do understand what you're saying, but... Well, you don't have 
to eat it if you don't want to. Try eating it if you feel up to it, 
though.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so order it whenever you feel like it. I'll

be wary?

["It's just you."]

Flavio: Huh, it's just me? Really?

Bertrand: It's true we've been served some bizarre dishes, but there's 
never been a problem with the taste, right?

Arianna: Exactly. We have faith in Dame Regina's cooking abilities.

Chloe: Only Flavio is wary.

Flavio: U-Urgh...

["Actually, me too..."]

Flavio: Yeah, right!? There's no telling what's what with her.

Regina: Well aren't you two rude. I simply prepared the ingredients you 
brought.

["Worrisome Flavio."]

as it is!

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, it's done. Can you try eating it now?

Chloe: Meat, meat. Meatmeatmeat.

Bertrand: Hey, this jam is made from that humongous strawberry, right? 
Wouldn't you have an incredible amount of jam if you made it from that?

Flavio: Come to think of it... you're right. Is the kitchen jam hell right 
now...?

Regina: You don't have to worry about that. It's a watery fruit, so boiling it 
reduces the amount by quite a lot. Plus, there are plenty of ways to use the 
jam, like including some with bread. ...Or maybe filling up small jars to give 
to customers to take home.

["Crafty, eh?"]

Regina: Y-You think? ...I just thought of that because there were 
customers that asked me if they could take home some spices...

Arianna: *giggle* Dame Regina always thinks about her customers.

Regina: It's no big deal. But, well... I think the same about you.

["You should charge."]

Regina: I thought about that, but I figured it'd be a good advertisement 
for the café to give them out for free first.

Arianna: I see...! You have to lose in order to gain, right?

Regina: Yeah. I know of a few customers that'd like to use my spices, so 
I think they'd advertise for me.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Alright, I'll add this to the menu, so order it again whenever you 
feel like it. ...I'll be waiting.

Regina: A place with flowers this beautiful, huh... I know the forest is a 
dangerous place, but I want to check it out one day.

this is welcome.

Regina: Yeah, a lot of customers order warm dishes. This recipe is perfect.

["I hope they like it."]

Regina: ...Yeah, I hope so too. Lately, I have been having fun imagining 
the looks on the customers' faces as I cook.

Arianna: Dame Regina...

Regina: Wh-What's with those eyes, Arianna? Don't look at me like that.

Arianna: What do you mean "like that"? I was just gazing at you out of 
joy...

Regina: Stop that, I said! I'm still not used to that aspect of you...

Chloe: Regina... Do you hate Arianna?

Regina: That's not what I meant... Argh, I'll just add this to the menu! 
Come eat it whenever you want!

["Seconds, please!"]

enough for seconds.

Flavio: Oh, this'll definitely become popular! I want seconds, too!

Flavio: ......

(*Thud!*)

Chloe: Flavio passed out.

Regina: What? Why? What did I do?

Arianna: Sir Flavio does not like insects... spiders in particular.

Regina: What a coward.

Bertrand: Whoa, whoa, hold on there, kid. Just this once, I'm with him. Now, 
let me say this on his behalf: What the hell is this!?

Regina: Fried whole spider. I told you the recipe name before, right?

Bertrand: Like that tsukudani before, why the hell does Apicius want to eat 
bugs as-is!?

Regina: High Lagaard wasn't an easy land to raise livestock, I hear. This was 
a precious source of meat, most likely.

Arianna: I see... It is a dish that tells us the history of High Lagaard.

Bertrand: That's not the point... Uhhh... Sorry, kid. This old man is out of 
things to say.

Arianna: However, coming face to face with it... It is rather difficult to 
eat. I do feel sorry for it.

Regina: ...You said that before, thinking about it. Siegfried, what about you? 
Do you dislike the looks of this dish?

["It's instinctively gross."]

Regina: I see...

["It's acceptable."]

Regina: Hrm, I see. So it varies from person to person.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: It looks like I need to think about this. I can only see them as 
ingredients, so I don't understand it. Though I feel really bad about what I 
did to Flavio...

["Don't worry about it."]

Regina: Thank you, Siegfried.

["Let's hide it before he wakes."]

Regina: Yeah, that's for the better. ...Too bad since it's tasty and 
healthy.

["Let's make him eat it."]

Regina: ...I see. Make him eat it so that he can overcome his fears, 
huh? That may be a good idea. If he eats what he's afraid of, he might 
no longer become fearful of it.

Bertrand: ...Allow me to speak on Flavio's behalf. Don't.

Regina: Do you think? I thought it was a good idea...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I'll add a note to the menu warning those who can't stand insects. 
When you order it, I'll make sure Flavio doesn't pass out again.

~Prepare~

Regina: Oh, you like this? I was bummed that not many people were ordering it.

Regina: I-I told you before... Flattery will get you nowhere. ...... 
Here, have a second helping.

Flavio: Ooh! Thanks a bunch, Regina!

Regina: Stop flattering me! I won't give you any more seconds, you got 
it!?

["Seconds!"]

Regina: ...Ha, fine, fine. Here, have as much as you like.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: Is it just me? Regina's face looks gentle.

Bertrand: She's settled things in her mind. She's got a refreshed look on her 
face.

Arianna: Just like you, Sir Bertrand?

Bertrand: ...Quiet, kid.

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so order it whenever you feel like it. I'll 
be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: It may just be stir-frying, but that's the precise reason why it's

Chloe: I'm not sick. Chloe is simply... moved. The meat is so big and juicy... 
It's a waste to eat it...

["Good for you, Chloe."]

Chloe: Chloe cannot thank Regina and Apicius enough for this... I want 
to just gaze at this dish all day...

Regina: Er, eat it, by all means. It's good cold, but it'll be a 
different taste.

["Then, I'll go first."]

Chloe: !!!?!!!

Regina: ...Hey, don't do it. You'll be hated for life.

Flavio: Yeah, if you take the meat from Chloe right now, I don't think 
even I could back you up...

Bertrand: Same here.

Arianna: Oh, everyone...! Sir Siegfried would never do something so 
heinous as that.

Regina: You think so? He sure looked serious to me.

["Of course I was joking."]

Arianna: *giggle* Of course. I believe in Sir Siegfried!

["I'm sorry."]

Regina: *sigh* Make sure you apologize to Arianna for believing in 
you, too.

Arianna: Huh? ...Um, what do you mean? Why are you apologizing...?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Well, take your time to enjoy it. I'll add it to the menu, so order it 
again. I'll be waiting.

Chloe: This is...

Flavio: Wow, that looks good! I like that look of it: as rich as it looks!

Chloe: Flavio. That is not the problem at hand.

Arianna: Dame Chloe...? Is there something wrong with this dish?

Chloe: Something really wrong. This dish... it is difficult to remove the 
vegetables.

Arianna: Oh my...! Would it not be a problem if you simply at them together?

["Don't be so fussy."]

Arianna: He's right. Dame Regina's vegetables are also very delicious.

Chloe: Urgh...

Regina: I've always thought this, but you're too picky with your food, 
Chloe. Eat before you pass judgment.

["Let's work at it."]

Chloe: Sorting the vegetables out, one by one... When the ritual is 
over, I feel like something good can be summoned.

worshippers...

Chloe: Meat!

Flavio: Calm down, Chloe! First, take a look at what's below that!

Chloe: ...A shell? And, it's cooking the meat? But it has nothing to do with 
the meat part. Chloe says this is edible.

["Something might seep out."]

Flavio: Whoa, that sounds a bit scary!

Regina: What do you mean by "something"? That's rude to say that in 
front of the person who made it.

["There's no problem."/Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I'm just using that in place of a grill. It's no different.

Bertrand: Then why don't you just NOT use the shell?

Regina: ...I thought that too and tried it in a normal pan, but... The taste 
turned out differently.

Flavio: So maybe something IS seeping out!

Flavio: I guess you can say that. It's not often when you can eat all 
you want. Let's give it a try!

Bertrand: Ooh... You kids have young stomachs, too. This old man'll just 
take the strawberry part.

Arianna: Then I will take the filling part! *giggle* I'll take a lot.

Chloe: I'll take all.

["Can we finish this...?"]

Flavio: Well, we have Regina, so maybe the six of us can take it on...?

Arianna: That's right! We can do it!

Chloe: Hoorah.

Bertrand: You young'uns have young stomachs, too.

["I wanted one for myself."]

Flavio: Wha-- You're not going to order another, are you!? This here is 
one Flavio; you gonna eat two Flavios!?

Chloe: We need to be challengers.

Arianna: Yes, if we work together... we won't lose to anything!

Flavio: Was the conversation this epic!? This is dessert we're talking

Regina: Alright, it's done. Could you give it a drink?

Bertrand: Hrm... Gotta love tea. I like black tea, but green tea isn't bad, 
either.

Flavio: ...Come to think of it, I see you drinking tea all the time instead of 
eating. Are you a tea-lover or something?
 
Bertrand: Ahhh, well... I guess you can say that.

Chloe: ...Trand, you're not going to tell him?

Bertrand: ......

[Ask about it.]

Bertrand: ...Well, I guess I should tell you.

[Don't ask about it.]

Bertrand: Oh, don't make that face. It's not anything serious, I tell 
you.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: It seems my body changed a little since the last ritual. I don't get 
very hungry. I tested it out one time. I can live off of just water for two 
months. So there you have it. After that, it's been a habit of mine to drink 
water and tea.

Arianna: The last ritual...

Flavio: ...The reason you always shared your meal with Chloe was because you 
weren't hungry?

Bertrand: Yeah. Useful body, eh?

["It is useful."]

Bertrand: Yeah, it was a valuable trait back when I was traveling alone.

["...Not really."]

Bertrand: ...Yeah, maybe you're right.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: It's hard to believe... You said you don't get hungry, but what about 
taste?

Bertrand: Hm? I can taste the difference. I can smell, too... That's why I 
prefer tea over water.

Regina: ......

Chloe: Regina, don't worry. Trand isn't a fan of eating... but he's having fun 
eating here.

Regina: Ah... is that so?

Bertrand: Well, I suppose. It's not a bad thing eating here with you kids. I 
used to skip out because eating was a pain, but now... not so much.

["Let's eat together more."]

Bertrand: Yeah, at this restaurant... right?

["No skipping out anymore."]

Bertrand: Yeah, yeah, I get it. I'll eat with you kids at this 
restaurant.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...I see. ...I'll add this tea to the menu, so you're more than 
welcome to come eat, even if it's just for tea.

exploration goes well.

me to eat while you two are staring at me...

["I won't lose either."]

Regina: Haha, I see you're not. You and Arianna make a great couple.

Arianna: Urgh!?

Regina: What's wrong, Arianna? It's not like you to choke on food.

Arianna: Th-That's because... Um...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: You're a strange one. But, as long as you like the dish, there's no 
problem. I'll add this to the menu, so order it whenever you feel like it. 
I'll be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: Smells delicious, right? They call this the "taste of home cooking". 
It's interesting there's a culture that cooks houses.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: ......

Everyone: ......

["How'd it end up like this?"]

Regina: ...I wonder the same thing.

["...Is this food?"]

Regina: All the ingredients are edible.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I checked the recipe over and over. I didn't do a single thing wrong. 
But when it got to the hardening stage, the dish just started to creep out of 
the mold.

Bertrand: Aaand it became this... Didn't something like this happen before?

Chloe: But that blue jelly was good, so this should be good, too.

Regina: ......

Chloe: Regina? Why aren't you saying anything?

Regina: ...Er, well...

["Did you taste it?"]

Regina: I really regret to say... but I haven't since it's become this 
shape.

["Is it no good?"]

Regina: ...I don't know.

Arianna: Huh? Do you mean... you have yet to taste it?

Regina: It is a big taboo as a cook not to do so, but since it has taken 
this shape... I...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: Well, I... can't blame you. Heck, knowing how you made it, it's 
probably even harder for you to try, being freaked out...

Regina: ...No, but as the cook, it is my responsibility. I'll taste it now!

["Good luck, Regina."]

Regina: Yeah, I'll fulfill my duties.

["Don't."]

Regina: No, don't stop me! It's unforgivable for me to serve you food I 
haven't tasted!

[Dialogue for the previous two options merges here.]

Regina: Now then...!

Regina: ......

Flavio: H-How is it?

Regina: Urgh...! *collapses*

Arianna: Dame Regina!? O-Oh, no! Please, hang in there!

Regina: I-I apologize. It was a completely unexpected taste. Or rather, 
it's not a bad taste, but... This doesn't make any sense. I didn't add 
anything that would make it taste this way... 

Regina: No wait, before that, the flavor is way too different from 
before it hardened... What happened when it cooled...?

Flavio: Th-that's scary...

["I'll taste it."]

Regina: Siegfried... I accept your resolution. ...Then let us both taste 
it. Now then...!

You close your eyes and put the jiggly purple block in your mouth. 
..Within the slimy gelatin is a crunchy texture as well as a springy 
texture you cannot bite through... ...In regards to the flavor, you have 
no capacity to describe it. It is like you ate a tender steak... or 
perhaps a burnt shrimp... You cannot even tell if it tastes good or bad. 
It is simply... incomprehensible!

Flavio: How was it...?

["I don't know."]

Flavio: Y-You ate it, yet... you don't know?

Regina: ...Unfortunately, I don't know either. It's not a bad 
taste, but...

["It's harmless, at least."]

Flavio: At least!?

Regina: ...That's about the only thing I can say about it, too. 
There is nothing wrong with my body... but...

[All dialogue merges here.]

Regina: What IS this dish, Apicius...?

Arianna: ...This rather interests me.

Bertrand: H-Hrmmm...

Chloe: Apicius is amazing. ...Let's try it, too.

Flavio: R-Right...!

Regina: Y-Yes. Please do. The taste isn't bad, but... Huh... Still, how did it 
come to this...?

~Prepare~

Regina: I shouldn't be saying this as the cook, but why did it turn out like 
this...?

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Arianna: Oh, there are so many little steaks. They're quite cute. I don't know 
which one to start with.

Flavio: Hm, each one really does have a different flavor. I used to think meat 
was meat, but they all taste unique.

Chloe: Even Inelaborate Flavio gets it. This dish is incredible.

Flavio: I-Inelaborate... Sure, I don't mind being called that by everyone... 
except you.

Chloe: But, you say things like, "This beef is good," while eating chicken. I 
can't believe it.

Flavio: The sauce was the same! No one thinks about different types of meats 
when eating, right?

["I never thought of it."]

Flavio: Yeah, see!? Siegfried doesn't do it, either!

Chloe: You both don't have enough love for meat.

Arianna: *giggle* But you two can tell the difference now. This dish is 
amazing, isn't it?

["You can tell."]

Flavio: Huh!? Y-You can tell...?

Arianna: They all have their characteristics. In the first place, isn't 
the shape of beef and poultry different?

Bertrand: You really don't think at all when eating, huh...?

Flavio: Huh? I-I'M the odd one...!?

Arianna: *giggle* But even Sir Flavio can tell the difference now. This 
dish is amazing, isn't it?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I changed the spices used to bring out the characteristics of each 
meat. ...If you couldn't tell the difference with this, I think Apicius would 
be in shock.

Bertrand: Good thing you were able to tell, eh, Flavio?

Flavio: ...Am I THAT bad?

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so you can try enjoying it in other ways, 
like changing the sauce or eating blindfolded.

~Prepare~

Regina: You can change the flavor by changing the sauce you use. Enjoy the 
different combinations.

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Chloe: Ooh... This is like a meat cake. It's so beautiful...

Regina: You break the yolk on top and mix it together. Like this...

Chloe: Ahhh!?

Regina: Wh-What is it!? What's wrong!?

["Don't worry about her. Keep going."]

Regina: A-Are you sure? She sounded incredibly dejected...

["*sigh*"]

Regina: I-I'm asking what the problem is! What did I do!?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: Oh, don't worry about her. She's probably in shock seeing the meat 
being crushed. You never think about how you eat normally, but you're so loud 
when it comes to meat.

Chloe: But... it was so beautiful that I wanted to gaze at it more. The meat 
cake...

Regina: S-Sorry... I didn't mean to disappoint you. But, this dish is all 
about freshness, so you have to mix the egg and eat quickly, or else it'd lose 
its flavor.

Chloe: You should have told me that earlier. Hurry and mix it, Regina.

Regina: ......

Arianna: *giggle* Dame Chloe is truly serious when it comes to meat.

Flavio: No, she's just being selfish.

Regina: ...Whatever. I'll add this to the menu, so eat it however you choose.

~Prepare~

Regina: Some might be turned off by the raw meat, but it's a taste you can't 
get by cooking it. It's something I wish everyone would try.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Bertrand: Ooh...!? I was wondering what was going to come out when we were 
told to bring soft floor. It's actually pretty normal.

Flavio: Heck, it looks really good!

Regina: Yeah, I also was wondering how it would look after reading the recipe. 
...The biggest thing to learn from Apicius' recipes is probably his flexible 
approach. It's not easy to take things that don't look like ingredients at 
first try and try finding ways to use them.

["That's the spirit."]

Regina: Ha, I don't know if I can reach the same heights as Apicius, but 
I will continue to strive.

Arianna: That's incredible, Dame Regina! I'll be cheering for you.

Chloe: I'm happy to have more food to eat.

["You probably shouldn't..."]

Regina: Hm? Don't make that face. I'm not thinking of starting off with 
something as extreme as cooking walls.

Arianna: Walls... Would that be sautéed? Perhaps a butter flavor would 
make it-

Flavio: Inedible! You're putting too much faith in butter! Even butter 
would question the strength of butter in this regard!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Well, first, I'll see if I can use this galette in other recipes. 
Alright, I'll add this to the menu, so order it again whenever you feel like 
it. I'll be waiting.

Regina: I never imagined such flavor could come from flooring... Apicius' 
ideas are truly amazing.

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Flavio: ...Uh, er, you know... something is, uh, sticking out?

Regina: Don't worry. It's sticking out of the soup, but it's been cooked and 
is edible.

["That's not the point."]

Regina: Hrm, could it be... the presentation again?

["Then it's A-OK!"]

Regina: Of course. I would never serve you anything that wasn't safe to 
eat.

Bertrand: Siegfried, Regina. I... don't think that's the problem here.

Regina: Hm? Then... is it the presentation?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: It looks hard to eat at first, but it's been stewed long enough, so 
you can eat the bones, too.

Arianna: Th-The bones, as well...!? We can eat... even the face? Th-That's... 
a bit cruel.

Chloe: If it's easy to eat, I have no problem.

Bertrand: Ooh, using it whole really makes the soup good, too. Even though 
it's using meat, it's not that fatty. It sure is easy for this old man to eat.

Flavio: ...Old man, I can't believe you can drink that.

Regina: Hrmmm... It looks like this is another dish that'll require a warning 
on the menu. The taste is exquisite and it's full of nutrient, so I'd 
appreciate it if you ordered it again. I'll be waiting.

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Chloe: This soup doesn't have meat...

Flavio: Well, yeah. There wasn't any meat in the ingredients. But what's this 
white thing? ...Hm, it doesn't really have any flavor.

Bertrand: Hey guys, bird nests are expensive ingredients here. That's an 
unworthy opinion, eh?

Flavio: Huh!? This is THAT expensive!?

["No wonder it's so good."]

Flavio: Wh-Whuh!? I-It's good...? I mean, the soup is great, but this 
white thing not so much...

Regina: Calm down. Just because it's expensive doesn't mean the flavor's 
good.

["...I don't get what's the fuss."]

Flavio: Y-Yeah, huh? Huh!? I mean, the soup's great and all, but this 
white thing isn't THAT good, right?

Regina: You're right.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: This ingredient is valued for its texture and nourishment... and most 
of all its rarity. Well, this is from the forest, so the price is probably 
different from the regular ones.

Chloe: Nourishment... Is it a medicine? What kind of effect does it have?

Regina: Let's see... According to Apicius' recipe... it's good for the throat 
and skin.

Arianna: The skin...!?

Regina: Wh-What is it? Is something wrong?

Arianna: Dame Regina, please give me another serving of this soup!

Regina: O-Okay... Sure. What happened to her, all of a sudden?

Bertrand: ...Just goes to show that she's a girl, too. Do you want my soup, 
too?

Arianna: Yes, please!

Regina: I don't understand... but if you like it, then you can order it again. 
I'll prepare it for you anytime.

eating it.

Chloe: ...... ...Too late, Regina. My tongue is burning...

Regina: It's my fault for not warning you earlier, but you should eat more 
calmly, you know.

["Yeah, let's eat slowly."]

Regina: See? Siegfried agrees.

["It's meat. We can't help it."]

Regina: *sigh* Not you, too.

Regina: Alright, it's done. Now, eat up!

Bertrand: Hrmmm... even I'm hesitant to eat dirt...

Arianna: This is the soft floor that we brought, yes? ...Does cooking it make 
it edible?

["Let me try."]

You decide to try and cut off a piece of clay from the side of the dish. 
...It is quite hard when you cut it and does not feel like it can be 
eaten. ...... This is most definitely dirt!

["Arianna, open wide."]

Arianna: Huh? O-Oh, me? O-Okay... ......

Chloe: How is it, Arianna?

Arianna: It... It's very grainy...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: ...I know you just ate it, but I don't think that's to be eaten.

Regina: Hrmmm... I didn't think you'd actually eat it...

Arianna: Huh? You mean... it's not supposed to be eaten!?

Regina: There weren't any notes on the recipe, so it's probably not harmful... 
But Siegfried, Arianna. That's just the casing to cook the meat in.

Arianna: ......! I-I see...

Regina: No, I apologize for not telling you earlier. I didn't think you'd 
really eat it...

["I want a more sincere apology."]

Regina: I-I'm really sorry...

["We ate it..."]

Arianna: Yes... We ate it...

Regina: ...I'm, well, um... really sorry.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: How do you really eat it?

Regina: O-Oh, you break open the clay with a wooden hammer. See? The meat 
comes out.

Flavio: Ooh... It's piping hot!

Bertrand: You can really smell the herbs. Are they soaked into the entire 
thing?

Chloe: Regina, cut it. Give me a bunch of the leg meat.

[If Fafnir ate it.]

Regina: Er, I think the best part... should go to Siegfried. I mean, he 
needs to refresh his palette, don't you think?

Chloe: ...You're right. I guess it can't be helped. I'll let Siegfried 
have it this time.

Flavio: Do you want some of mine, too?

[If Arianna ate it.]

Regina: No, I'll give the best part to Arianna. ...I hope it'll help 
cleanse your palette.

Arianna: Thank you so much...

Chloe: ...I should've ate some, too.

Bertrand: You're willing to eat dirt for the sake of meat?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: I'll add this to the menu, so go ahead and order it again. ...And 
remember not to eat the clay.

to tell you... but you can't eat the clay.

turn out like this.

Arianna: Born as a monster, he fought us and ended up as a kettle... Quite a 
strange fate it is!

["Life is full of surprises."]

Arianna: It certainly is. Us meeting and sitting around a kettle was 
something I never imagined, either. Perhaps one day we, too, will become 
a kettle like this.

Flavio: Er, that's way too surprising! Besides, if we become kettles, 
that'd be terrible!

["I would like to live that way."]

Arianna: As would I. Even if the day comes when I fall, I would like to 
be someone that keeps on helping... ...I would like to live like that!

Flavio: I... would not like to become a kettle.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: I want to become a frying pan. Then I could cook lots of meat.

Bertrand: Well, I'm glad you've decided your future career.

Chloe: Mm-hm.

Flavio: C-Career...? How's that a career...?

Regina: You can chit-chat, but don't stop eating. I'll give the first to

Bertrand: And what's this pot for? It's a strange shape... and nothing's being 
stewed.

Regina: *chuckle* I'll show you how it works, so keep a close eye on me. Take 
a slice of meat, swish it in the boiling water, and then...

Arianna: Wow... The color changed!

Flavio: Ooh... The shape changed, too! And is the fat melting off?

Chloe: ...Interesting. I want to try. Me next!

["Go ahead, Chloe."]

Chloe: Yep! I'll do it a bunch!

Bertrand: Good for you, Chloe. ...Hey, wait. Only do your portion, got 
it!?

Chloe: No problem. I'll eat all of it.

to the menu, so order it again if you feel like enjoying this again. I'll be 
sure to give you extra.

Flavio: Hmm? It smells good... What is it?

Arianna: This is flan, Sir Flavio. It's sweet and delicious.

Flavio: Huh? But there's meat in it, and it's hot.

Arianna: But looking at the ingredients and the cooking process... it has to 
be flan!

["This can't be flan."]

Flavio: Y-Yeah, right? Flan is cold, sweet, and served with fruits, huh!

Arianna: Now that you mention it... But this is Sir Apicius' recipe. It 
would not be surprising if he made a meat flan!

Chloe: Meat flan... Sounds so good... But if it wants to be called that, 
it needs to be more meaty. As such, Chloe does not recognize this as a 
meat flan.

Bertrand: ...No one's asking for your permission.

Regina: Besides, I'm sorry to say that this is not a meat flan, but an 
eastern dish known as a chawanmushi.

["Yeah, this is flan!"]

Arianna: Yes, that's right!

Flavio: Er, no. The flan I know is cold and served with cream and 
fruits, not meat!

Arianna: This is steamed, so of course it would be warm. But still, to 
think meat could become dessert... Sir Apicius is amazing!

Chloe: Meat dessert. That sounds like a wonderful thing.

Bertrand: Yeah, only for you. I'm getting heartburn just thinking about 
it...

Regina: Uhhh... Sorry to butt in, but that's an eastern dish known as a 
chawanmushi.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Huh? Is that so!? But it's sweet, right?
 
Regina: Not at all. I haven't used a pinch of sugar.

Arianna: I cannot believe it...!

Flavio: Er, I find a dessert using meat to be something more unbelievable.

Chloe: This is... tasty, but a little disappointing. The road to meat desserts 
is a steep one.

Regina: Hmm, a dessert using meats, huh. I don't recall if Apicius had a 
recipe like that... At any rate, I'll put this on the menu. It's no meat 
dessert, though... But order it again anyway.

Flavio: The jellies of meat juices are great, huh? I'm always happy to see 
them formed in a pot I left around.

Chloe: This is the taste of happiness. ...I want to take a bath in this.

["That's a great idea."]

Chloe: Right? To become one with food... That HAS to be happiness.

Bertrand: Go ahead. Just don't cause anyone else any trouble. I'm sure 
that Hanna'll knock you to the next Stratum.

Chloe: Hrm. So there was the problem of location.

Arianna: Well, if the bath is out of the question... How about Dame 
Regina's giant kettle?

Regina: There's no chance I'd lend it to you.

["You probably shouldn't."]

Chloe: Huh, why?

Flavio: ...Chloe's amazing. She really doesn't get why.

Bertrand: Why'd she turn into such a meat freak...?

Arianna: But I think the feeling of liking something is a valuable

presentation a problem?

["You're finally getting it."]

Regina: Well, after all I've made... I finally figured out that fishes 
of whole monsters-- especially insects-- aren't very popular.

Flavio: I'm glad that you've learned, but... Regina, are you really okay 
handling this?

Regina: Hm? The most I thought about it was that it was a big catch... 
an ingredient worth cooking.

Flavio: Cooks are crazy...

["This is out of the question."]

Regina: I knew it... It may have been fine during Apicius' time period, 
but it might not be as well-accepted now.

Arianna: A time when whole roasts were normal... That must have been an 
exciting time.

Chloe: I'm interested.

Flavio: I've never been more glad to have been born in this era...

["...Actually, I'm okay with it."]

Regina: Hm? Is it the size that makes it okay?

Flavio: Wait wait wait! Whaddya mean by "actually"!? What makes it 
actual!?

Regina: Hrm, so it does vary from person to person.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: So, what're we gonna do? Eat it?

["Let's eat."/"We have no choice but to eat."/"...Let's eat."]

Arianna: If you are resolved, Sir Siegfried... Th-Then... so am I!

Flavio: Huh, wai-- Really!? I-I... can't even...

Chloe: I'll eat, too.

Bertrand: Then, I guess I'll go along.

Flavio: Y-You're all eating it...!? Th-Then... M-Me, too!

You all bite the bullet and challenge the food sticking out of the dish...! 
...It is a long and heavy battle. It is flavored, but for some reason you 
cannot taste anything...

Flavio: U-Ugh... It's still not over yet... The legs are still there...

Bertrand: This old man's a bit full...

Arianna: U-Um... Do we have to eat this face here...?

Chloe: Empty your mind...

You impressively clean the plate! You are filled with a sense of 
accomplishment, similar to when you defeat a powerful foe.

Regina: If it was that hard, you didn't have to force yourself to eat it 
all... But, good work. I'll add it to the menu, so order it again if you feel 
like another challenge.

~Prepare~

Regina: Cooking something so big gives me a sense of accomplishment... Take 
your time and enjoy it.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, it's done. Could you try eating it now?

Arianna: My... Purple meat and orange sauce make it quite vivid!

["Yeah, they're complementary colors!"]

Arianna: Yes, they do make each other stand out. It is a nice 
combination.

Flavio: Y-You think...?

["Looks poisonous..."]

Arianna: Do you think so? Purple is a beautiful color; does it not make 
you hungry?

Flavio: ...You really love purple, don't you, Arianna?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Chloe: But why is the meat purple? When we brought it, it was a normal color.

Regina: This changes color when you cook it. If you mess up the temperature, 
the entire thing'll turn purple. It's pretty difficult.

Arianna: The entire thing will be purple...? That sounds delicious, too!

Regina: Hrm, you may be right. I think that this temperature is best for 
steaks, since any more would change the flavor... But it may make for some 
interesting color combinations for stews and such when combined with 
vegetables.

Bertrand: ...Well, that sounds like it'll turn out to be quite a unique stew.

["You should try everything."]

Regina: Hrm... Then, I'll give it a go!

["I'll pass on the taste test."]

Regina: Hrm... You telling me that makes me want to feed it to you even 
more.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Not an Apicius recipe, but a Dame Regina original.

Regina: *chuckle* A recipe with my name, huh? It'll be a long road... but I 
like the ring to it. Alright, I'll add this to the menu, so order it again 
whenever you feel like it.

Regina: Enjoy the colors of something only the forest can give you. I 
guarantee the flavor, too.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, it's done. Could you try eating it now?

Chloe: Sarmale? ...Not cabbage rolls?

Regina: You can think of it as a type of cabbage roll. I'm using pickled 
leaves to wrap the meat. I also added rice inside, so it might last longer in 
the stomach than a normal cabbage roll.

Flavio: Rice...!? Hmm, that sounds interesting. I always thought you only put 
meat in cabbage rolls!

Arianna: Chewy and crispy... *giggle* My mouth is quite enjoying this!

Bertrand: Man... Normal dishes like this sure are relaxing.

["Considering what our usual is..."]

Bertrand: Yeah, Apicius' recipes are full of crazy stuff.

Regina: That's Apicius' characteristic, so I can't do anything even if 
you complain to me. Besides, most of the customers enjoy the novelty of 
his dishes.

Bertrand: That's something I don't get... Er, the actual taste is great, 
but...

Flavio: Yeah, huh? It's great... but crazy sometimes.

Regina: I got it, I got it. This dish is on the menu, so order it 
whenever you need a break from the other dishes. I'll be waiting with 
the same flavor as always. That is my job.

["You need spice sometimes."]

Bertrand: When you become like me, you want to just relax. You'll 
understand eventually.

Regina: Siegfried... becoming like you? I can't imagine that.

Arianna: A Sir Bertrand-like Sir Siegfried... *giggle* That sounds 
interesting!

Chloe: We don't need any more bothersome people.

Bertrand: Hey, whaddya all mean by that!?

Regina: It's exactly as it sounds. Now, enough with the gibberish. I'll 
add this to the menu, so order it whenever you feel like it.

Bertrand: Talk about me was gibberish...?

~Prepare~

Regina: It's a type of cabbage roll, but it tastes different from what you 
know, right? The secret is in the leaves.

Flavio: It's pretty blue...

Arianna: Me neither. If you add a little more red, it would be a beautiful 
purple... But this is delicious as-is!

Bertrand: Kid, you eat without hesitation. ...Well, the monster WAS a pumpkin, 
so I guess everything's okay?

["Indeed."]

Bertrand: Yeah. A pumpkin is a pumpkin.

Flavio: Eating monsters is an everyday occurrence for us now, huh...?

["But it was a monster."]

Bertrand: Ohhh... Normally, that would be true, but don't you think it's 
a bit late to say that?

Chloe: This restaurant's food is pretty much all monster-made.

Regina: Hey, at least say it's forest-native.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: If you want to eat something sweet, you're free to order it anytime. 
I'll be waiting.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: I've made dangerous flowering tea. Could you try drinking it?

Arianna: ......

Chloe: ......

Regina: ...Hm? What's wrong? I thought that Arianna would like this drink...

Flavio: W-Well, there's no complaints about the dish, it's just this scent...

Regina: Scent? ...It smells fragrant to me.

["It's a trap!"/"Don't let your guard down!"]

Regina: Wh-What the!?

Bertrand: ...Er, sorry about that. This particular scent puts us on guard.

Chloe: This smell makes me sleepy... We can't move... It's very dangerous.

Regina: ...I-I see. To me, it's a very flowery smell... but is it THAT 
dangerous a monster? ...What will you do? If the smell's too traumatic, you 
don't have to drink it.

Arianna: B-But... it's Dame Regina's cooking. We should drink it!

["You're right."]

You tell yourselves that the perilous past and the tea in front of you 
are two different things and pick up the glass. ...The sweet smell 
relaxes you, beckoning you to slumber. ...At this rate, you're going... 
to fall... ...asleep...

["Good night."]

Unable to resist the soft scent, you let your consciousness go.

Flavio's voice: You fool! Don't sleep! You'll die!

(*Smack!*)

Flavio: Th-Thank goodness... You're awake, right?

["Thanks."]

Flavio: It's nothing. I can't just let my buddy put himself 
in danger.

["What are you doing?"]

Flavio: Whaddya mean by that!? If you sleep here, you'll be 
in danger!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Er, I don't think there's anything dangerous here in the 
restaurant...

Flavio: Huh? ...Now that you mean it, yeah... S-Sorry, Siegfried.

Regina: But still, it is a bit dangerous to nod off due to the 
scent.

["We can't sleep!"]

...This isn't good! You open your eyes with firm resolution!

Arianna: Zzz...

Chloe: Zzzzzz...

Regina: ...Oh, you're awake. I was wondering what happened. You 
nodded off due to the sweet scent... That IS a bit dangerous.

["Exactly. Go ahead!"]

Arianna: Yes! ...Huh? Um... Am I the only one to drink it!?

Bertrand: Wow, that's something I can't do. You're amazing, Arianna.

Chloe: Good luck, Arianna.

Flavio: You guys are all mean...

Bertrand: Oh? Then you drink it with her. I'll sit back and watch.

Chloe: Yes. Keep watch.

Flavio: Ugh... F-Fine then... Here I go!

Arianna: And I, as well!

Bertrand: Now then, how's the taste?

Arianna: ......

(*Thud!*)

Regina: Arianna? Flavio!? A-Are you two okay!?

Arianna's soft breath: Zzzzzz...

Flavio's snoring: Zzzzzz...

Chloe: ...Don't worry. They're both just sleeping.

Bertrand: The smell is so good it put them to sleep. Isn't that a bit 
dangerous?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...I'll serve this with something to waken the customers. And I'll put 
a warning on the menu... You guys be careful too whenever you order it again, 
okay?

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Alright, it's done. Could you try eating it now?

Flavio: Oh, that looks good! Heheh, let's eat!

Arianna: It's smaller and easier to eat than the bun. Mmm, the flavor of meat 
comes bursting out when bit into...! This is so delicious!

Chloe: But they're all smaller, so they're gone in an instant.

["This size is perfect."]

Bertrand: That's right. There's a perfect size for everything. If it's 
big, it'll be hard to eat, and you'd get full in the middle of eating 
it.

Chloe: I wouldn't.

Arianna: *giggle* It's true that we wouldn't have to worry about Dame 
Chloe becoming full.

Flavio: You really do eat a lot... Do you want my portion, too?

Chloe: I do!

Regina: Glad you like it. I'll add it to the menu, so order it whenever 
you like.

["Let's make it bigger."]

Flavio: Oh, that'd be nice. You can't go wrong with that!

Chloe: Well, first... I'd like it as big as Flavio's head.

Regina: A person's head, huh? ...Do I even have a steamer that size? No, 
but before that, I'd need to rethink the skin's composition.

Arianna: ...It wouldn't be as easy as simply making everything bigger?

Regina: Well, maybe if I didn't think about it, but you'd want it as 
delicious as possible, right?

Bertrand: The pride of a professional, eh?

Regina: It'll take some time to make a giant shumai... but I'll add this 
to the menu. Order it whenever you feel like it. I'll be waiting.

~Prepare~

Regina: They may be small, but they're packed inside. Isn't it delicious?

Regina: There you go, twice-cooked meat. Could you try it out right now?

Flavio: Oh... I like this dish. This would be great with some rice!

Chloe: I vote for that, too.

Regina: I figured you'd say that, so I prepared some. Here.

["How considerate of you."]

Regina: We've worked together this long. I can tell how you guys like to 
eat.

Chloe: ...I can feel Regina's love.

Regina: H-Hey, don't say it like that.

["I love you, too."]

Regina: Wha...!?

Flavio: Oh, me too! I like Regina, too!

Regina: Sh-Shut up! You guys are making such a big fuss over a 
bowl of rice!

["Dame Regina, thank you!"]

Regina: Wh-What are you saying!? I said don't call me that!

Flavio: No, I understand Siegfried's feelings. Regina alone isn't 
enough. That's right, Dame Regina!

Regina: I have no idea what that's supposed to mean!

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: *giggle* You are all really such good friends. ...Oh, Dame 
Regina, Dame Regina. I love you, too.

Regina: E-Er, stop that...

Bertrand: ...What? Is this where I'm supposed to jump on the bandwagon?

Regina: There is no such bandwagon! Ugh, I'll add this to the menu, so 
eat as much as you like! And I won't give you any more rice!

Chloe: Nooo...! 

["I'll pass."]

Regina: I see. If you need any, just ask me. There's no reason to be 
reserved.

Chloe: Regina, give me a big helping.

Flavio: Me too! I'll take a large helping!

Regina: Yeah, yeah, I know. You just sit and wait.

Chloe: Okay!

Arianna: *giggle* It's like Dame Regina is a mother, hm?

["You're right..."]

Regina: No one's ever told me that before. I doubt there's a 
mother this rough.

Chloe: But you did just seem like my mom. Mom also said the same 
thing when I asked for seconds.

Regina: ...I-Is that so?

Flavio: Hmmm... That's kinda touching.

["Can I call you Mama?"]

Regina: Of course not!

Flavio: Th-Then... Mother?

Regina: Who was talking about the way you call me it!? I don't 
recall having any kids, let alone children this big!

Flavio: ......

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: *sigh* I'll add it to the menu, so order it whenever you like. 
...I won't give any more rice, either.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Here you go: BBQ lizard. Could you try eating it right now? The flavor 
is a bit strong, so try sandwiching it with bread.

Bertrand: ...Ho-ho! This is pretty good.

Arianna: How can I put it? It is melodiously sweet... And the saltiness that 
follows is so well-balanced... Ohhh, and yet it disappears so fast from my 
mouth...!

Flavio: Man... I want to keep this in my mouth forever...

["It's edible happiness."]

Flavio: Putting it that way... it's a bit sad.

Chloe: ...DO you always think of such difficult things when eating?

Flavio: No, but it was so good it made me think.

Arianna: ...I understand the feeling. It is just so delicious.

Regina: I'm glad you took a liking to it. I'll add it to the menu, so 
order it again. I'll be waiting.

["One more, please."]

Flavio: Shoot, I didn't think of that!

Chloe: Seconds, me too!

Regina: I hate to burst your bubble, but I didn't prepare that much this 
time...

Flavio: ...I see.

Chloe: ......

Regina: Hrmmm... I'll add it to the menu, so the next time you order it, 
I'll make extra. Okay?

Where are we supposed to start eating from?

["Let's try the shell."]

Flavio: Well, it DOES stand out... Hm? This part's movable? ...Whoa, it 
came off!

["The whiskers?"]

Chloe: Hm, I'll try pulling on a long one. ...? The head came off.

["How about the claw?"]

Bertrand: You're right. If there's a place filled with something to eat, 
it'd be here... ...Huh? It came off!?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Amazing! The inside is cut into bite-sized pieces!

Regina: *chuckle* It looks hard to eat at first, but it has been prepared to 
be easy to eat. The yuzu goes well with it. Bon appétit.

You forget to speak, simply using your mouth to eat... Before you realize it, 
the giant hermit has disappeared!

Flavio: Phew... The presentation has impact, but more than that, the taste was 
great...!

Chloe: My heart was pounding when the head came off. However, it was pounding 
more at the taste. It's so good, even though it's not meat. I want to give 
this Chloe's Honorable Meat Award.

Arianna: *giggle* A blue-ribbon winner!

Bertrand: Is that even praising it? ...Well, I guess it is in Chloe's eyes.

Regina: I'll take that aware and add this dish to the menu. Order again 
anytime.

~Prepare~

a clear soup.

Flavio: Whoa... It's like... Boom! Don't you think so?

["Yeah. Boom!"]

Flavio: I'm usually not one for these types of clear soups... But with 
this "boom", I can drink it!

Regina: Hrm, I know you're giving me opinions on the flavor... But I 
have no idea what exactly that's supposed to mean.

Bertrand: Don't worry, kid. I don't get it, either.

Chloe: ...No clue either. How are they having a conversation with 
onomatopoeia?

Arianna: Do you think so? I think I can understand them. These kinds of 
refined soups are usually a bit "floofy", but... this one is "boom"! 
Correct?

["What are you talking about?"]

Flavio: Huh? You don't get it...? Why not? I mean, it's "boom"!

Chloe: I don't get it either. You're just repeating onomatopoeia.

Arianna: Do you think so? I think I can understand them. These kinds of 
refined soups are usually a bit "floofy", but... this one is "boom"! 
Correct?

Flavio: Ooh! You get it! That's right, it's "boom"!

Regina: Hrm, I know you're giving me opinions on the flavor... But I 
have no idea what exactly that's supposed to mean.

Bertrand: Don't worry, kid. I don't get it, either.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Here you go. Sumo chanko pot. Go ahead and try it.

Chloe: Full of meat. Thick slices. Me happy.

Flavio: Hmm, it's a big pot, but it's been well-stewed, so it's easy to eat! 
...But what's a sumo?

Bertrand: Ah, that's a warrior of the east. Something like the ronin.

Regina: Exactly. This dish was developed to help them retain their powerful 
bodies. In other words, this is the secret to their strength.

Arianna: I see. So warriors of the east are also chefs? ...I wonder if the 
ronin also have some traditional dish?

["Maybe."]

Arianna: ...What kind of dishes do they learn? I would like to ask them 
about that!

Bertrand: Well... I have a couple of acquaintances, but I haven't heard 
anything from them.

Flavio: ...Maybe it's a secret. This pot was a secret too, right? Regina 
said it herself: the secret of their strength.

Chloe: So the Mr. Ronin may be keeping their cooking a secret?

Arianna: Then perhaps it is not something to simply ask on a whim... It 
is dangerous to recklessly reveal the secret of your strength, after 
all.

Regina: But still, that shows how much Apicius was trusted by the sumo 
that told him this. ...He was truly a great man.

["Probably not."]

Arianna: ...Do you think? That's a bit unfortunate.

Regina: I thought the same as well and asked several ronin, but turned 
up empty-handed. According to them, sumo is a job where having bigger 
bodies is beneficial. That is why they have secrets in eating.

Flavio: The better the better? I wonder what kind of job it is.

Arianna: Are they incredibly tall? Then this dish was prepare to 
increase their height...?

Bertrand: Heh, if that's true, then Chloe needs to eat a whole lot, huh?

Chloe: Shut up, Trand. Chloe's not small. This is my perfect size.

["It may not just be ronin."]

Arianna: ...Does everybody know of a secret dish!? Wh-What should I 
do...? I do not know of any sovereign cooking...

Flavio: I don't know any survivalist secret dishes either...!

Chloe: ...Now that I think of it, Trand made a protector grill when we 
were traveling together.

Bertrand: Ah, that was a mess. I tried cooking meat on my shield, but it 
burnt and the maintenance oil made it smell...
 
Regina: ...That's just a failure.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Hm? The entire pot has been emptied out while we were talking... I'm 
glad you took a liking to it. I'll add it to the menu, so order it again. I'll 
be waiting.

hear. You should eat up, too.

Flavio: Whoa, what's this!? The vegetables are shaped like flowers... They're 
like toys.

Arianna: They're so cute and delicious! *giggle* I'm at a loss what to eat 
next.

Regina: Yeah, I thought this recipe was for you, Arianna. Conversely, I 
thought Chloe would hate it. Not hungry, Chloe?

Chloe: But... there's no meat.

Bertrand: I figured you'd say that. It's such an elaborate dish, too... What a 
waste.

Flavio: Huh? It's definitely good, but... isn't it just stewed vegetables?

Bertrand: Stew all these types of vegetables together, and you wouldn't get a 
taste like this. I think the seasoning and stewing process is different for 
each vegetable.

Arianna: Oh... So that's why each vegetable has such a definitive flavor. I 
was wondering how they were prepared.

Regina: ......

Bertrand: Huh? What's wrong, kid? Standing around like that.

Regina: S-Sorry, I was surprised. I never imagined hearing something so normal 
from you...

Bertrand: What!?

["That's your fault."]

Bertrand: ...Do I act THAT bad usually?

Chloe: Usually, yes.

Bertrand: ......

["Regina, that's harsh."]

Regina: S-Sorry... It was so unexpected, I accidentally spoke my mind...

Bertrand: You like to lay it on, kid...

Bertrand: Ooh... this is a good tea. The color is clear, and above all the 
scent is excellent.

Arianna: Yes, you're right... It has a hint of sweetness. Did you add some 
sugar?

Regina: No, I didn't add anything. This is the natural flavor of the bud.

Flavio: Hmmm... It's sweet just making the tea, huh? That's amazing.

Chloe: I don't like tea that much, but I like this. I want to keep smelling 
it.

Regina: Haha, this is what I'd expect from Apicius' recipe. Enjoy the scent.

~Prepare~

Regina: Lightly sweet, a refreshing scent... Just making it makes me happy. 
It's a taste you can only get from a bud.

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: It's done. This is Yggdrasil-sprout tea!

Arianna: My... The water looks so beautiful; it's like you melted a piece of 
amber. This is the first time I have ever seen such a beautifully-colored tea.

Flavio: Yeah, I don't know anything difficult, but I do know this is pretty!

Bertrand: Ah, it is a pretty sight. But, is this really tea? I feel like I'm 
licking honey. It's sweet as heck.

Regina: I didn't boil it like normal tea. I ground it instead, so the flavor 
of the sprout itself is what you're tasting.

Chloe: So, that means... Yggdrasil flavor is very sweet? ...If I bite the 
trunk, it'll be sweet?

["Let's try it."]

Chloe: Yeah. If it's sweet... then we don't have to worry about being 
hungry while exploring.

Regina: Sorry to burst your bubble, but the sweetness exists only when 
it sprouts. The trunk isn't sweet.

Flavio: Huh!? Wait, don't tell me that you've tried to cook it already!?

Regina: As a cook born in an Yggdrasil city, of course that's something 
I would try once.

["It tastes terrible."]

Chloe: Huh!? You mean... you've tasted it?

Regina: That's a coincidence; I've tried it, too... But it's not 
something to be eaten.

Arianna: A-And... How was the taste?

Regina: Like wood.

Flavio: I've never eaten wood before, so I wouldn't know how that's 
supposed to taste like...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: At any rate, this is the unique flavor of a sprout. Take your time and 
enjoy it.

~Prepare~

Regina: All I did was grind it, and it's this sweet... You can't underestimate 
Yggdrasil, even as an ingredient.

=============================================
[DEX3] Yggdrasil-Clover Tea
=============================================

Book: Tea Brewing 3 (Special Menu)

Ingredients: 1x Strong Clover

Price: N/A

Memo (Hint): Boil a rare Yggdrasil clover to obtain its extract.

Memo (Description): Very grassy and bitter, this tea has mysterious powers.

Effect: Extra EXP for Guild (All guild members gain extra experience after a 
battle! Effective until you return to town.)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: It's done. This is Yggdrasil-clover tea!

Flavio: Hmm...? This smells a bit like medicine. Is it drinkable?

Regina: Yeah. It's... drinkable.

[Drink it.]

You slowly bring the blue, clear liquid to your mouth. ...... A very 
grassy and bitter taste hits your tongue...!

Flavio: *cough* Wh-What is this!?

Regina: Yggdrasil clover. You brought it to me. According to the notes, 
it's a medicinal drink.

Chloe: Medicinal... The taste makes sense.

Bertrand: ...Hey, kid. If it's medicine, then tell us ahead of time. We 
need to be prepared here.

Arianna: Ueh... I can feel it spread from my mouth, through my nose, 
into my eyes...

Regina: I figured that being a secret recipe, it'd be best for you to 
try it without any prior bias. Besides, though it tastes terrible, the 
notes say the effects are great. Don't you think you should suck it in 
and drink it all?

Flavio: Er, well, yeah... But being this bitter and horrible, my 
stomach's still stirring...

[......]

Regina: Don't be so reserved. The smell and taste are horrible, but it 
is very nutritional.

Bertrand: Hey, kid. Did you just quietly mention that the taste is 
horrible?

Regina: Yeah, I did. According to the recipe, this is more like a 
medicine than a tea.

Chloe: Medicine... It does smell like it. ...But this smells worse than 
any other medicine I've had.

Arianna: B-But it's good for the body, yes...? It's a rare drink, so it 
should be worth drinking it...

Flavio: ...This'll take some courage.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Good medicine tastes bitter. ...It's the tough part about being an 
explorer.

~Prepare~

Regina: It tastes horrible, but the recipe says the results are worth it. Good 
medicine sure does taste bitter.

[DEX4] Court Haute Cuisine
=============================================

Book: Japanese Cuisine (Special Menu)

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Here it is: court haute cuisine!

Arianna: This is... incredible! The dragon is all bread! This is bread, 
right!?

Flavio: Alright, let's start cutting! Should I start from the tail?

["Give me the tail."]

Flavio: Ooh, like the edges? Then the tail is yours, Siegfried.

Chloe: Then I take the head. It looks crunchy and tasty.

["Give me the middle."]

Flavio: Okay, then. I'll take the tail. Ooh, the end is crispy, but the 
center is fluffy!

Arianna: This is cooked superbly!

["Give me the head."]

Flavio: The head!? You're starting from there!?

Chloe: No, Chloe gets the head. It looks crunchy and tasty.

Arianna: This is a pickle... With it being this big, why don't we split 
it into two pieces?

Flavio: S-Split this even more...!?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: *chuckle* I'm glad you're enjoying it. So... how is the dragon? Does 
it look like the real deal?

["Exactly!"]

Regina: *chuckle* Not bad for second-hand knowledge, huh? But still, in 
order to increase the degree of completion, I would like to see the real 
thing for myself...

["A little different."]

Regina: Hrm... I suppose that's the limit of creating from second-hand 
knowledge. I would like to see it for myself...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: Whoa whoa whoa, it's really dangerous. I mean, way past dangerous. 
Like, seriously dangerous!

Regina: Hrrmmm... You're right. I can only wield kitchen knives and pots, so 
it'd be reckless to explore the forest, huh?

Chloe: Weapon: Pot. That sounds strong.

Bertrand: It does, huh? She's pretty strong, so maybe she can actually do it.

["Regina's a chef."]

Bertrand: It's true she's skilled at what she does. It'd be a waste for 
her to change careers now.

Regina: ...I see. You think that highly of me, huh?

Flavio: Plus, it really is dangerous. Regina's a girl, after all.

Chloe: ...? Flavio, what does that even mean? Chloe and Arianna are both 
girls.

Flavio: Huh? Oh, now that you mention it... you're right.

Arianna: *giggle* Sir Flavio is quite forgetful, forgetting our gender.

Flavio: Y-Yeah, leave it at that, please! That's me. Forgetful Flavio!

Bertrand: ...You lucked out, Flavio.

["Want to join Chevalier?"]

Arianna: You're right. Cooking is a battle with your stamina! Plus it 
would be fun to have Dame Regina explore with us!

Regina: H-Hold on there. You're one of this town's top guilds! Welcoming 
an amateur would be-- Plus I would have to talk with Grandfather... No, 
but-- ...... R-Right now, I can't.

Chloe: Right now? So you're fine with it someday?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: ...It's tempting to go on an adventure with you, but before that, I've 
been entrusted with this restaurant. Right now, my main job is to cook up good 
food for you as you go exploring.

Arianna: ...You're right. We also enjoy coming here to eat.

Regina: Yeah, I will continue to strive to make you useful dishes. Now then, 
I've added this to the menu, so order this whenever you like. For you, I'll 
cook my best.

~Prepare~

Regina: This is Apicius' greatest work... and a dish I was able to make thanks 
to you. Bon appétit.

[DEX5] Traditional Osechi

---

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Here it is: traditional osechi!

Chloe: Oooooh...

Flavio: Wow, a dragon made of vegetables...!

["That's what I expect from you."]

Regina: *chuckle* Thank you. I've been waiting for that line. It took a 
while to make this, but I wanted to see the surprise on your faces.

Arianna: Yes, we were truly... surprised!

["I have nothing more to teach."]

Regina: Haha, what are you saying?

Arianna: She's right, Sir Siegfried. You have never taught Dame Regina 
once how to cook.

Regina: ...Actually, that may not be true. It may be true I've never 
learned cooking techniques from you, but I've learned something more 
important.

Arianna: Dame Regina...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Bertrand: But still... Eastern households sure make some amazing things. It's 
pretty luxurious to have this decorated dragon.

Regina: Yeah, it's a once-a-year celebration. Each household has its flavor. 
I'd like to check the country out for myself one day. I've made many eastern 
dishes here, but that's all from books...

Chloe: Huh!? ...Regina, are you leaving?

["It'll be a bit lonely."]

Chloe: You even have your own restaurant, too...

Regina: ...What are you saying? You're all from different countries; 
you're not going to stay here forever, right? But... it makes me happy 
to hear you say that.

["Want us to come along?"]

Chloe: That's a good idea.

Regina: Hey, don't turn this into a big deal. You have your own places 
you need to go to, right? Plus, Siegfried has to return to Midgard...

[Dialogue merges here.]

Regina: Well, that's still off in the future. I'll probably need Grandfather's 
permission, anyway.

Flavio: The Minister's permission, huh? He's really attached to you, so 
convincing him may be a feat...

Arianna: Hmmm... He might even cry.

Regina: ...Don't say things that'll make my resolution waver. I, uh... have a 
soft spot when he cries.

Bertrand: Hey, kid. Tell me when you do go talk with the Minister. I'll go 
watch.

["I want to watch, too."]

Bertrand: Yeah, sounds fun doesn't it?

Chloe: Trand, Siegfried, both of you have poor taste. You should let 
them cry by themselves.

["That's in poor taste."]

Bertrand: What, and be a Goody Two-shoes? It'll be a blast.

Chloe: You have poor taste, Trand. You should let them cry by 
themselves.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: That's right. It's an important parting for the two; you should let 
them cry together.

Regina: Hey, you guys. Why are you determining that I would cry too?

Arianna: Huh? Dame Regina, you wouldn't cry?

Regina: Er, well... Ugh, I said that's in the future! Enough with the 
suspicion of whether or not I'd cry! Anyway, I added this to the menu, so 
order it at any time. I'll work hard to make it for you.

~Prepare~

Regina: They eat this to celebrate the New Year in the east. I'm shocked they 
make all this at home. I'd like to visit one day.

~Story Conversation~

Regina: Here it is: Imperial manhan quanxi!

Flavio: Whoa, this is amazing! Huh? This dragon is edible!?

Regina: Yeah, the horns and wings are candy, but the actual insides are pretty 
much dragon meat.

Chloe: Ooooh...! All meat. Everyone, meat... This is the ultimate.

Arianna: Yes, I agree! It was difficult to defeat it, but seeing it like this, 
it is plump and quite adorable, is it not?

["Its attacks weren't adorable."]

Arianna: Oh, you are right...

Bertrand: Definitely not something I want to remember...

Chloe: But it won't counterattack any more. Meat is good.

["It does look adorable."]

Arianna: Right!? We won't have to be so scared the next time we meet it!

Bertrand: I'd rather not have to meet it at all...

["It looks delicious..."]

Arianna: U-Um, that's not what I meant... But the round thighs do look 
juicy...

Chloe: Chloe thinks the tail gets a high score.

Bertrand: Young'uns are true to their stomachs, eh?

[Dialogue merges here.]

Flavio: Man... They're really all so good. I don't know what to eat next!

Chloe: That answer is simple. Eat it all.

Regina: Yeah, eat as much as you want. That's why I made all of this.

Arianna: This is worthy of being called the ultimate dish. But... wasn't this 
a task to prepare so much food?

Regina: It was a bit tiring... But I wanted to answer to you for brining me 
such great ingredients.

["I'm glad we worked hard!"]

Regina: Hahaha! That's the face I wanted to see! Not only do you bring 
me ingredients, but you eat my food so deliciously; that's what keeps me 
going strong. ...Seeing that face makes me reaffirm that it's thanks to 
you that I made it this far.

["You don't need to worry about it."]

Regina: It's just me acting on my own. It was thanks to you that I was 
able to focus so much on cooking. It's my little show of gratitude.

Bertrand: Er, this amount of food... That's definitely past "little".

Regina: Do you think? I feel this isn't enough... at least, thinking of 
you guys.

[Dialogue merges here.]

Arianna: Dame Regina...

Regina: Now, eat to your heart's content. Filling your bellies is my reward. 
If you want to fill up, order this dish any time. For you, I'll cook my best.

~Prepare~

Regina: ...I didn't think I'd be making this again. I really, really thank you 
for gathering such rare ingredients.
