A blue sky, and a vast plain.
A knight that rides on a horse is so much of a gallant figure that I reflexively stopped my feet to look at him.
…….If there were actually people ne .
Currently, we’re on a journey directed to the Castle.
Once I got back to Ragus village to collect my luggage, I felt like I was departing again.
Everyone in the village was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I’ll be going to the Castle.
Saying, in a border village you can’t get sufficient information, and it’s dangerous, etc.
I am deeply grateful to everyone that was anxious for me, while modestly receiving the reward from the Castle—– that Dark squadron’s head seemed to be the prize—- I handed all of them over.
In case something were to happen you’ll need money right?
In fact, in a self-sufficient village, money is not used much, so there’s no need to store it.
Still, if something at some point were to happen, I have money. There’s no loss in having it.
Or so everyone said with exaggerated emotions and I was silenced.
It’s okay, everyone. When I arrived from a different world it was thanks to you all that I was able to keep living.
If something happens in the future then I would like to repay this favor.
……well, there is something that those white knights have misunderstood though.
『We won’t let you feel discomfort, you can rest assured!』
And so, there was a complicated atmosphere here.
Oi, what are you doing in this deeply moving scene.
After that I collected the little baggage I had and left the village.
Iya, my luggage turned out to be quite the amount. Mainly food for the journey though.
As a farewell gift I received dried meat and honey—– sugar is precious it seems. However, it’s not something that is only high priced and that you can’t obtain—- all seasoning materials too.
Salt • sugar • pepper are this world’s standard seasonings, but I’ll really appreciate other seasonings too.
Well, the herbs here are easy to obtain thanks to the environment.
Thus I am currently going on a journey.
[ Sensei, after how many days will we arrive?]
[ Hmm, at this rate after two more days.]
While gazing at the setting sun, I asked sensei who was next to me, and he returned an immediate answer.
Yeah, I am awfully free. There’s nothing in the surroundings too.
Today’s 『Work preparations』are over.
Currently, I, Sensei, and the knights are being shaken in the carriage. 『If you don’t get used to travelling then it’s bad!』Or so it’s said, but I applied gravity magic to soften the mat so now it’s comfortable.
It goes without saying that Sensei, and the knights and surprised expressions on their faces but I disregarded it. If I were to give them an explanation then 『The world has something called gravity~』I’ll have to begin from this first. Generally, it’s impossible.
Since that mat was laid on the luggage part of the carriage, when it’s time to sleep it’s naturally comfortable.
I am truly sorry for the knight’s situation. Everyone, laughed it off and told me not to mind though.
I was feeling really guilty so I asked to be in charge of the meal. With the strong backing of sensei I got the job.
Actually that was for personal reasons.
Even though they have the ingredients. For some reason, this world’s cooking methods are only on a basic level.
Even though yeast bread exists, they don’t put anything inside the plain bread,and the cooking method is basically grill and boil.
……I never thought that there would be bread but no sandwich.
The bread is eaten with hands only…..It seems, bread itself is thought of as an already finished dish.
The way to eat bread is one thing. But the same applies to the other dishes. The cooking variation is awfully scarce.
It seems like the rule of ‘the transmigrated peoples from other worlds techniques= best’ wasn’t completely used.
Sensei was deeply moved when I cooked something in exchange for me freeloading at his house
It was just a salad dressed with peperoncino though……
From there he talked about cooking, and I received a shock from knowing about this reality.
Oioi, until now you didn’t ever summon a chef !?
[ Soon we’ll have to make preparation for camping. Mizuki, I’m sorry but…..]
[ Hai hai, I’ll make preparations as soon as we stop.]
That’s why I’m thinking of starting today’s dinner preparations.
For some reason the knights look to be happy.
Ahem……you guys are aristocrats right?
Is it all right to anticipate like this a commoner eating habit ??
[ It’s delicious!]
[ I would like to welcome you at our house as a cook]
[ Haa……it’s good if you’re pleased]
Other then that what else? In this situation.
Today’s menu content is vegetable soup and a voluminous sandwich.
A simple menu that anyone can make, I am truly sorry.
The contents of the sandwich consist of thin slices of grilled meat, onion and lettuce, seasoned with mayonnaise, salt and pepper. At best let’s mince the meat and then make a hamburger. When we reach the Castle shall I borrow the kitchen and make them?
In the vegetable soup I put in small pieces of dried chicken ham and cooked it together. (TN: for ignorant like me that don’t know what this bird ham is http://justbento.com/handbook/johbisai/torihamu-homemade-chicken-ham)
Bird’s ham and chicken meat smeared with salt, honey (sugar) and pepper which you’re familiar with, and if possible put it in an empty pack and leave it as it is in the refrigerator, after two days pass lightly boil it and you’ll have prepared a simple dish. It’s delicious you know!
The meat was already seasoned, so in this case it’s enough to just cook it together with vegetable since it still has its seasoning on.
I used reduction time magic so I cooked for a family in a short amount of time.
It seem like this magic is originally used in plant cultivation. Incidentally this world’s vegetation isn’t recognized as a living thing. Plants are just plants.
About this magic, being used on living beings with the exception of vegetation……I was worried, but the usage was restricted 『The use on living creature is prohibited』there were rumors about the fact that it has no effect on living things.
Well, if you grow the plants all in one go, once you cut its body it will die. Great, Ancient people.
By the way my 『state preservation』and 『reduction time』are special magics that I can use solely if I imagine the state I know will happen『no matter the result』.
Plainly speaking this is knowledge from movies and dramas of my original world.
According to sensei 『if those people were of this world they would’ve been matchless geniuses 』it seems. Certainly, being able to understand the effect of magic is important so it may be the best reference book.
Well if you can’t image then the magic will end up misfiring to people that are here.
[Stopping the time and maintaining the current conditions…….]
[ What kind of thing is time?]
[ …… ( explaining it is hard)]
What kind of situation is there? It doesn’t even have a definite shape so giving an explanation is difficult.
No, I’m digressing. I was currently talking about cooking.
Ah, how do you carry fresh meat I wonder?
Look like there’s a box tightly shut that maintains the conditions with the cast of a weak cooling magic, so there’s no problem at all.
If there’s no electricity then magic is put to use, it’s wonderful ne!
The principal bread is the white bread type and I just have to bake it because I already did the dough beforehand. Rather than baking I am currently just raising the surrounding temperature uniformly like an oven.
When I was broadening the view regarding bread’s type in the village, on top of that while pretending to do preliminaries I made a lot of it, and discovered that it was possible to reduce the time to bake them by several loaves. Magic, how wonderful ! It’s even more convenient than in my original world!
Right now they are all calmly eating without showing resistance, though at the beginning they were all bewildered except me and sensei.
Maa, when Sensei cheerfully began to eat, the others started to move their hands too.
From that moment started the elucidation about this world eating conditions.
It you suck then there’s the possibility that the people of the border will have a fulfilling eating habit, that I was thinking about this, is a secret.
……you’re so delighted that at this point I can’t bring myself to say 『apart from the fact that when it was stored in the house I used state preservation magic it’s a handmade dish』right. I didn’t think that it would shut the mouth of a noble.
Sensei, please don’t say anything. You’re the only one that noticed it.
Knights yo, you cooperated in making the bread dough so in exchange,you can eat a lot.
Before departing I exaggerated in making bread dough and produced a large quantity……I didn’t reflect on it.
[ It’s really delicious, Gordon-dono got to it this everyday……]
[ I was freeloading at his house. This was the least I could do to repay him]
[ What is this seasoning? It has a curious taste]
[ Are you talking about mayonnaise?]
[ Muaynezu? Is that what it’s called? I would like to know how it’s made……]
[ It’s im……eh, it’s okay !?]
I guess it’s impossible, is what you were going to say?
Well, I don’t mind, as expected from mayonnaise? Anyone can make it if looking at the recipe.
The eyes of the knights were all sparkling, I guess it’s better to write it down for everyone.
……Nh? Knights do you want it as well?
That, is such an amazing thing ?
[ Mizuki, do you know about the fact that they are nobles?]
[ If they don’t know about this thing then it means that it doesn’t exist in this world. In other words, I’m saying that it’s better if you remember that it’s something of worth that even a nobleman desires.]
I see. It’s a situation where for me it’s an ordinary thing but in this world it has ridiculous worth.
You’re amazing, mayonnaise. If it’s served on a nobleman’s dining table it’s possible to equal it to a high class seasoning.
But even if it’s like this, I don’t feel like monopolizing it.
[ Ano, I’d like that recipe to spread among the civilians]
[ To the civilians? Of course I don’t mind. If they have all the ingredients then I want everyone to savor this]
[ Thank you very much!]
Excellent answer, Duke’s third son.
I got your word, you won’t say that you forgot right?
[ But, why?]
[ This way a new dish may be born somewhere right!]
[ Ah, I see. Dining circumstances differ according to class and location.]
Yes, it’s exactly that!
Whenever the common people think it’s delicious then it’s delicious. Watching you guys convinced me!
Nobles that applaud with great ovation towards a commoner’s dish, what a sublime spectacle !! It’ll be hilarious right ♪
…….as expected I can’t say this, so I resumed eating in a good mood.
And then a problem appeared.
[ Mizuki, did you make something else too ?]
Sensei, you had to say it with this timing? As I thought you did saw it !
Everyone’s eyes began to sparkle, don’t have so much expectations- ! !
……I’m sorry, I lost to sensei’s silent pressure.
I have no other choice but to spill the beans, quickly.
In front of everyone’s eyes I took out crepes for dessert ( with custard inside) I thought 『what to do if I am questioned about this too ?』
Because you know?
In any case you won’t be able to understand custard and crepes if not with a demonstration?
Well, for the sake of the crepes shall I turn over the nobles’ houses….?
