The pitfall of wanting a slow life is having to work hard for things to be the way you want...

What i indicated in my statement there is the maids..... the chef using money given by landlord to buy luxury goods and "experiment" with them in order to make a better food is reasonable to me..... but the maids that kept trying to get these sugar and demanded the result of experimantation are the weird one to me.......

edit:
It's not that i hate the idea of close relationship between a master and subordunate.... in fact i quite like it.... for example the maid that will give birth to mc's half sister in mushoku tensei, eliza and her subordinate in i turned into villainess noble girl but why did it turned out like this, mary and addie in albert house lady wished for destruction, etc...... but i don't like it when they go way beyond overstepping their bounds and completely ignoring it (mary and addie case a lil bit special tho...... their interaction more likely born from their trust, bond, and subconcious feeling for each other)

The parents and the chef were acquaintances from way before they're a feudal lord, so they're more like friends than master and servant,
Though I'm also curious of by what means did the adventurer and merchant parents turned into a noble..

Well tamagoyaki with sugar doesn't really suit my taste. I'd have one with salt and tomato/hot sauce mix, please.

keep everything in sub space, and since you're the young lord, they can't question your decision.

......... i'm always tired and confused whenever i try to understand japanese isekai world hierachy...... there are novels with clear social hierarchy and with sound reasoning, but more often than not, just like this manga..... it's a real mess...... if i were the landlord i would hang them on the town square and listed their crime so far (including what they planned to do..... i mean, trying to get sugar a luxury good from a noble family chef that bought those sugar using money entrusted to him in order to cook meal for the said noble family)

I'm not asking for much.... i just want them to act according to their station and time they live in........ or at least define the hierarchy and relationship between them and stick to it.....

Not very different from reality tbh, europeans were so desperate for the stuff so they moved over 10 million people across the atlantic to work in plantations

@Eksentrysyti i mean, thing was practically edible gold back then before the colonial era and sugarcanes. because the only sweet thing you had are honey and fruits.

Noble house, yet they treat sugar more precious than gold.

Weren't they in a village? That means there are more jobs than there are (skilled) people. Even the carpenter wasn't getting any help despite all the extra work.

Oh yeah, nice idea author, lets make Seria sound like a stupid person to exploit A 4 YEARS OLD CHILD NON-PAID JOB ON HER RESTAURANT, because the free receipts that Alfred give her and the increase in custormers income aren't enough to make money to employ new workers. Nice and GG IZI madam!

The sugar schtick is as annoying as mc's big sister. When are both gonna stop?

The issue with the sugar is that, as the chief, he is in control of ordering and using ingredients (especially the expensive/rare kind). But the chief is hording a portion of the stock to use for personal tasting/testing. So he is in the wrong for embezzling house resources but the maid has no right to it (it belongs to the noble family). If anything she is blackmailing him for a cut of the good stuff. (or at least that is how I figure this is playing out)

@feha Your box of imported chocolate or fancy cheeses is where my mind goes. Hell taking anything is pretty messed up unless it was company funded. This whole thing only makes sense if he's embezzling money for sugar lol.

Manga tends to have a lot of unreasonable things in it passed off as ok. Like when any female kicks a male around for accidentally seeing her naked or "cheating" on her, even when its the other person who made a move on them, even when they are not actually dating. Thats essentially victim blaming ain't it? I really wish they would stop using it but its kinda become ingrained at this point.

Always amazes me how rudely the ppl in this manga is stealing (or rather, rob, as its by gunpoint and not stealthy) the guys sugar that he paid for himself (its not merely pressuring him to do it, they appropriate it even if he says no repeatedly), a luxury good that costs a damn lot due to their location and technology. A modern day analogy would be if you worked at some place and your coworkers always thought it appropriate to force you to give them your cars gasoline, or your expensive skin care products/cosmetics or... special imported alcoholic beverages (no clue why you brought that to work, you damn alcoholic).
