It shall be this one's duty to offer recipes and menus. These will be easy to follow, and tested to be good enough that a slave would allow his Master to serve it to Master's Guests and reflect only the best of his Master.

slave wanted to come up with something special for February Fools
Day! While the appeal of sushi just never registered with slave,
Master has had the best from around the world. It did sound elegant
but really? I don't think so. Instead of rice rolls with raw fish,

served this with a rice dish and some roasted sugar snap peas.
