This is Makia.

Today is my 7th birthday. I’m glad to finally be another year older.

Winter is coming and it has been a little cold these last few days. However, it is also the season for delicious food.

Especially here in the Delia Fields, where [1], in addition to our locally produced fruits and vegetables, we could import all kinds of foreign ingredients from the harbour city. So, I can expect a lot of variety when it comes to food.

The birthday party is supposed to start in the evening but preparations have been ongoing since early this morning.

To think that I could not sleep the night before due to my excitement for a birthday party. Turns out I still have my cute side.

“Ara~ Makia-sama, you can’t enter the kitchen~~”

Pastry Chef Barnava quickly came over and catches me trying to peek into the kitchen.

“Barnava, what’s on today’s menu?”

“My, my, our Makia-sama sure is a glutton. Very well, shall I give you a hint?”

“Yes, please do!! Or else, I can’t wait until evening!!”

I have been told that my eyes shone like a little child at times like this. Well, I really am a child on the outside but not really one on the inside.

“Prosciutto from Margilia and fresh salads made with Delia Fields vegetables picked just this morning. White fish from Karted with special Genovese tomatoes followed by roasted guinea fowl with rosemary. Claire beef filet steaks with a berry sauce garnish…”


This is bad, I can’t stop drooling just from the names of these dishes.

At the back of the kitchen, Chef Augusto is silently working at his station. The other cooks are also busy with their own thing as well.

Ahh… the one thing that made me really glad about reincarnating into this world is access to all these delicious foods.

Fortunately, I am born a daughter of a prosperous Count family who made their wealth through food products.

“There’s also Lemon Cake with plenty of lemon syrup since it’s Makia-sama’s favourite.”

“Yes, I love it!! Barnava’s Lemon Cake is the best!!”

Lemon desserts made by Barnava are absolutely superb.

In Delia Fields, we cultivate our own lemons. One of our specialities is desserts and confectionery made from lemons.

Desserts such as Lemon Cake, Lemon Pie, Lemon Jelly…

“We’ll also have Fig Crostata, a Pear Tart and… hmm, and there’s the birthday cake. It’s going to be the highlight at today’s table so I can’t tell you the details but please look forward to the surprise~”

Looks like Barnava is pretty confident about his abilities.

Ahh, I love you Barnava, especially the part of you that seems determined to fatten everyone around you with delicious things~

I love Augusto too.

In my previous life, I used to love Yuri’s mom’s cooking. I really love that auntie.

Aah, I wonder how she’s doing? I’m sure she must be the saddest person when we all got killed…

I’m getting a little off-topic here, but getting back, I actually am not very picky with food. I find everything delicious and want to eat everything. Of course, while I do love my extravagant dinners, I also enjoy basic food such as natto on rice.

By not having any particular likes or dislikes, I can enjoy every kind of food in the world.

Aahh, the smell of roasting guinea fowl and sweet warm jam is just killing me.

The smell is stimulating my appetite like crazy, making my imagination go haywire. This is why I love peeking into the kitchen.

The smell, sound, and efficient movements of the cook’s hands fascinate me. I start to imagine what the finished products would look like.

Anticipation makes the food even more delicious when it’s finally ready to be eaten.

Aahh, just hurry up and come, my evening birthday party~!

The usual members will be attending: Smirda-chan, Lamia-chan, Camille-chan and Linda-chan. However, the presents chosen by their mothers don’t tickle my interest at all.

Ah, my father should be done with his work in the afternoon. Since he just came back from Karted, he had probably gotten me a present too.

Although, I would have been happy with just the delicious food.

The maids are all busily preparing for the party. Mother seems to be busy with all kinds of different arrangements as well.

I, too, feel like I should dress up more than usual today.

Something really special will happen today, I just know it.

Let’s wear my favourite fashionable red dress.

[1] Filling in the ‘Unspoken’. Often, when it comes to Japanese novels, the translation might be a bit lacking since the author deliberately chooses to use fewer words and let the reader fill in the blanks through a preset cultural understanding.

If the missing info looks too sparse, Gumi will fill in some of the blanks. This is not to imply that the writer’s craft is lacking, but we do have a cultural gap. Gumi will try to fill in these gaps unobtrusively.
