@draw2much Chili sauce is even more difficult to make. In a world where are no other chefs that cater to taste, she can't possibly find a plant that was selectively bred for over a thousand years (this work started by ancient Mayans, just like with maize) even if she paid all her money to search for it. It just wouldn't exist.

Lets not get into details of how she was able to easily create those stuff and focus on her journey of becoming the Chef Queen where the world fought for the right to have her XD

The real issue with soap and soy sauce is if she had to make her own lye and koji starter (a kind of yeast/mold). Even people really into organics, DIY, all-natural type stuff wouldn't make their own lye and koji, they'd buy it. As a spoiled foodie from a high-tech country, it's unlikely she knows how to make either. And if those ingredients already exist in this fantasy world, obviously soap and soy sauce would already exist too. So what we have is some terrible writing from an author who can't cook or make soaps. Also known as Plot Armor. :D

@keks503 It's a mandatory skill of Isekai MCs to be able to recreate everything used in modern society, from chopsticks and paper to smartphones and even missiles.

Lol, how does she know how to make soy sauce? & soap? I once read about how to make your own soap but forgot it immediately X'DDD What kind of diy master was she in her past life?

@unime Almost every isekai has the protagonist automatically know how to make modern necessities with zero explanation. At this point I just hand-wave it as asian middle schools having a mandatory "Isekai survival" course.

Ok, i understood the food thing since she's a glutton... but the soap? What the heck did she do before??? Lol... At least japanese isekai had a reason like "they liked to read so they know all this random stuff".. but no backstory with her skills??? LOL
