Additional Dialogue
What brings ye to our kitchen, 'venturer? Fancy learnin' about the culinary arts, maybe?
What do you do here?
Lyngsath's me name, an' I'm 'ead chef 'ere at the Bismarck, the finest restaurant in all Eorzea. 'Tis my charge to make sure everyone as fines in our halls leaves with a smile on their face. The job's mostly supervisin' journeyman chefs at their work, but I try to fit in as much cookin' as I can. That ain't all I do, though. I also 'appen to be the master o' the Culinarians' Guild, which lives under this same roof. That role has me trainin' aspirin' culinarians--which is without a doubt me most rewardin' endeavor. Don't matter if ye can't tell one end of a skillet from the other--if yer willin' to learn, I'm more than willin' to teach ye.
What are the culinary arts?
There's some as say the culinary arts are just a lot o' fancy cookin'--but that's only the 'alf of it. 'Tis true we take well-known dishes an' raise 'em to mouth-waterin' 'eights, but when we ain't busy doin' that, we're laborin' to bring new tastes an' textures into the world. Now, as ye can prob'ly imagine, both of the above call fer a decent helpin' of experience an' skill... but neither's worth a damn if you ain't got passion. Our trade's as tough as old mutton, lass, an' passion's the only thing what gets us through the gristly bits. When ye pour yer 'eart an' soul into a dish only to 'ave a patron call it slop, will ye swallow yer pride an' start again, or will ye run 'ome cryin'? Words cut deeper'n knives, 'venturer. An' when yer pride's been 'acked to shred, passion's the only thing as keeps ye standin' in front o' the stove.
Lyngsath's name means "Long Knife, Son of Two Falcon" in the Roegadyn tongue.
