  • "How did any of you survive before I arrived? What could you have possibly been eating, dirt?"
  • "I'm stuck with dull knives while you wield weapons of unimaginable power? Give me a break..."
  • "No one should go adventuring on an empty stomach. Eat well hero!"
  • "Supply me with the proper ingredients, and I can make some truly powerful foods for you, hero!"
  • "That kid [Name of Angler] is so stingy with his fish. He has a million of them and he cant spare a single one for some fish fillet?" (Only if Angler is present)
  • "Cooking for [Name of Dryad] is no easy task. She simply refuses to eat any form of meat!" (Only if Dryad is present)
  • "The last time [Name of Witch Doctor] asked me to cook for him, he requested bugs! This truly is a strange place..." (Only if Witch Doctor is present)

When the player clicks Supply Ingredients:

  • If player doesn't have any valid ingredients:
  • "Looks like you don't have any ingredients in your bags. If you can find enough of an ingredient I'm looking for, I can supply you with new purchasable foods. Some of these dishes will be far more powerful than my usual wears, so keep your eyes peeled for unique ingredients!"
  • Sunny Day Lemonade: "When I was younger, my mother would always greet me with some ice cold lemonade after a day of playing in the sun... I miss the simpler times."
  • Sauteed Shroom: "This crisp morel was just asking to be put in a dish, I hope its to your liking!"
  • Prickly Jam: "Pink pears can be problematic if prepared improperly. Good thing I'm a professional pear pickler!"

  • Mean n' Green Stew: "With just the right amount of green, this dish gets real mean. Be careful eating it!"
  • Sea Spaghetti: "Not a single wheat stalk in sight... I guess kelp can suffice as a noodle, if prepared correctly at least."
  • Blueberry Salad: "Ah, just enough blueberries to start making blue berry salad. Magic casters would just adore this food!"
  • Sky Bloom Cocktail: "Yunno, its not just called a 'Sky Blue Flower' because of its color. Some say they've fallen from the sky islands themselves long ago."
  • Blood Root Goop: "Last time I took a swig of this stuff, I started thinking everything was out to get me... But hey, maybe that's what you're looking for?"
  • Glowing Souffle: "Ah, glowing mushrooms, a staple in the diet of a terrarian! Hopefully this recipe offers a little more 'pizazz' to its taste."
  • Life Fruit Platter: "I'm honored that you'd trust me with such rare commodities. Hopefully this new recipe suits your fancy!"
  • Mana Delight: "I myself don't know much about the Hallow, it's a rather strange place... But berries are berries, eh?"
  • Etherian Grog: "I can tell this was written by an ogre... Still, the pictures give me a clear idea on how to brew this. Be careful with this stuff, its real potent!"
  • Bacon: "So the legends are true... The Kitchen scholars thought this recipe lost to time, but its right in front of me. I can barely contain my excitement to try it out!"
