UP Food Critic
- - It was with great pleasure that I travelled to the city
of Magincia a few days early. I will be reviewing the Great
Horns Tavern soon, but first I wanted to meet their new
head chef and bartender, Mr. Ben
Mr. Kahns hails from Nujel'm
originally, but travelled to Magincia to make a name for himself
in the Food Business. Here is a small transcript of our interview:
Alonarg III: So what type of food do you specialize
Ben Kahns: Well, in Magincia it's mostly pastries. The
people seem to have a sweet tooth. They have two bakeries in town just to fulfill the
Alonarg III: Cake is one of my favorite dishes.
Ben Kahns: One regular yesterday evening wanted a
Alonarg III: Peach?
Ben Kahns: Alas, I could not make one... the dough
would just not mix properly.He settled for a fresh apple pie...
Alonarg III: A perfectionist...I like you already.
Never serve something substandard, eh?
Ben Kahns: But I feel I failed him. I must endeavor to
make my customers happy.
Alonarg III: They'd be happier with your best work.
Ben Kahns: Of course, but with food, individual taste
is of the upmost importance.
We went on to discuss why he'd chosen Magincia over Nujel'm, since
his home was there, and he mentioned the money, but mostly that he was tired of the poor
conditions in Nujel'm, and the lack of good food.
If you get a chance, go by the Great Horns and Visit Mr. Kahns, he'd
be happy to bake you a pie or a cake, or just pour you a nice cold drink. And check back
soon for a review of his handiwork.
