And then nosimpleway figured that if he doesn't need money, he can just skip from day to day with an empty menu to speed along game progression.
Anyway, fish pies. Comes in herring flavor, eel flavor, and trout flavor. One more pie to go but damned if I know what it is.
A guess for that middle-of-the-steaks recipe. Turns out it's one you just don't get a hint recipe for, even if you have all the ingredients handy.
Moguani wants a particular puzzle.
In hopes of unlocking more hint recipes, I go out and gather all the rare ingredients I can without turning them into anything, in hopes of a specific odd-item combination giving me the next hint I need. It sort of works, as a Golden Fish combined with the previous seafood pies gives me the final pie recipe.
A look at the monetization list spoils the last ingredient and at least one dish I can make with it. So I need to find a sort of dragon I can tear the tongue out of, drake tongues are apparently inedible.
Of course, there's always the philosophy of "if you don't know a recipe, try using the upgraded version of an ingredient in the recipe right above it." Water to Otts Water, Tuna to Platinum Tuna, Mushrooms to Pineshrooms to Blackshrooms, and... Crab to King Crab.
After several minutes of stuffing things into jars and throwing them at Alter to see if he reacts, I concluded that the end of the bomb list is the same as the beginning of the salted vegetable list.
