My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 210
I Consulted Them About Using the Wine
The next day, I woke up feeling refreshed, thanks to Leo. And so I washed up and went down to have breakfast with the others.
After that, Leo and I trained with Tilura, and then I studied with Milina.
Apparently, she had made quite a lot of progress, and there were some points where she was the one who was teaching me.
I was happy to see her work so hard, but it also reminded me that I had to do my best as well.
“Mr. Takumi. Can you spare a moment?”
After lunch, I had meant to go out to the garden to make some herbs to send to Ractos, but Sebastian stopped me.
“It’s about the wine… Phillip reached the village on the same day that we met in Ractos, yes?”
“Indeed. Phillip arrived, and I confirmed that all of the wine barrels were loaded before leaving.”
“I see… In that case, it should arrive here in four to five days…”
Apparently, Sebastian wanted to know when the wine barrels would arrive at the mansion.
“If what Isabelle says is true, we cannot drink the wine unless it is boiled first…”
“Yes… I wish there was some other way.”
You could kill the source of the illness by heating it.
But that meant burning out the alcohol, so it would be nothing more than a kind of juice.
That was fine. And while Tilura might be happy to hear it, those who preferred wine would be disappointed.
“Herbs… Do you think you might be able to do something by using Ramogi?”
“Yes. Ramogi is able to heal the disease that is spread through the wine. So perhaps it can change the wine without the need of heating it as well…”
Since it works against the disease, perhaps it could remove whatever it was that was in the drink.
…While I understood why he might think this…it seemed unlikely.
“I don’t know… I won’t say that it’s impossible, but I would not be hopeful about that…”
“I see… Well, I was thinking of decoctions and medicinal liquors…”
Decoctions… I think it was when medicine is boiled with water so you can drink it… I studied it with Milina.
As for medicinal liquor… I did know a little about that as well.
They sold them in little red boxes in pharmacies in Japan…
I see… The idea of mixing medicine with alcohol was not too strange then.
…Though, I didn’t know how it was made…
“Perhaps medicinal liquor might work. It existed in the place that I came from. But I don’t know how to combine the two…”
“Of course… In that case, it might be best to consult Helena about it.”
“She is the head cook of this mansion. And she should have some knowledge when it comes to wine.”
After all…wine was heavily related to cooking.
Yes, it was obvious that we should ask her about it.
Sebastian did now know enough to give me an answer, so I had to talk to someone else.
Besides, as soon as the wine arrived, Ms. Helena would be involved with its fate.
“Very well. I will discuss it with her. Should I do that now?”
“As it is right after lunch, it should be a good time. However, don’t you have to make the herbs?”
“Well, that won’t take long. So I can do it later when I have time.”
“I see. Very well then. Come with me.”
As I had Weed Cultivation, it did not take long to make weeds.
If someone…like Ms. Lyra or Milina helped me, then it would be over quickly. And so I could do it later.
Sebastian then guided me to the kitchen where Ms. Helena was likely to be.
…Now that I think about it, while I had been here for a while now, I had yet to see the kitchens.
I wonder what it will be like…?
“Sebastian? And Mr. Takumi. Did something happen?”
We moved through the mansion and arrived at the kitchen. Inside, Ms. Helena and a few other cooks were in the middle of eating their meal.
Aside from the ovens and stoves, there were metal counters, knives, wooden cutting boards, shelves filled with tableware, and a place to wash things. It was a very substantial kitchen.
The cooks sat around a small table in the corner and ate.
“Is this a bad time?”
“…Mmm…gulp… Not at all. I have just finished. So, what brought you all of the way down here?”
As she was nearly finished, Ms. Helena hurriedly ate the last few bites on her plate and swallowed before answering Sebastian.
The other cooks also began to eat hurriedly.
As it wasn’t an emergency, there really was no need…
“We wanted to ask you about something. It’s not related to food, but drink…”
“That’s unusual of you, Sebastian. Is there something you want us to improve?”
“No, that is not it. Lady Claire is very satisfied with your work here.”
“I also enjoy your cooking very much, and have no complaints.”
As it was unusual for Sebastian the butler to confide in her, Ms. Helena wondered if there were complaints about the food.
As she worked for nobles, she would have to always listen and make improvements based on such feedback, which must be a lot of work.
…Perhaps it was like having to listen to customers complain at a restaurant.
But Sebastian and I then assured her that this was not the reason we were here… And that her food was as good as we could hope.
