Before starting reading, can I have some spoilers?
Can someone explain to me the tag "love triangle" on this?
Is there a 2nd ML and how deep its developed ?

@Paulthetic: It might just be me but manhua in general seem to frequently have a lot of stuff in supposedly female-demographic stuff (going much deeper than character designs) that seem remarkably like they're from what we would consider an unhealthy male mindset, and/or are quite degrading towards women.

To the extent that that's true, though, I honestly have no idea what the underlying reason is. (I mean, I'm inclined to think it's because China's sexism runs horrifically deep to the point where it's hard to set it aside even in fiction ostensibly written for women, since I'm aware things are quite bad on that front there in other realms, but I don't understand the situation well enough to actually declare that that's what's going on here.)

Edit: Ignore everything I said above, I just hadn't read far enough to properly get to what the OP was talking about.

Yeah this one is just really weird. Artstyle tends to the Boichi-esque, zero percent hot guys on display, and 100% lovingly-shaded boob shots with the occasional girls-in-a-bath scene...? (I have yet to see the romantic interest depicted attractively like he is on the cover, I swear he's just a blob). I'm genuinely dubious about the demographic tag, though one never knows, but... "The protagonist is female and loves cooking" is about as female-demographic-y as this gets, it's a terribly poor showing.

(Like I suppose you could almost convince me that this theoretically-but-probably-not-actually could have been written by an enthusiastic and slightly crass lesbian author, to be read by other lesbians... except that surely no self-respecting thirsty lesbian would have written in this male lead? He would be distinctly reviled, I feel. Much more plausibly, it could have been written by a guy and reviewed by male editors who went, "It is pink and there is cooking. GOOD! It is clearly for woo-mans. TO PRINT!")

Not that this has been ecchi, either.

Um if this is a josei, why do the female character designs seem to be geared more towards a male audience...?

I'm sorry but I'm confused is the art from the cover for a different story because it is so detailed and BEAUTIFUL,really fits a "historical" setting but what I actually get is some embarrassingly tacky maid outfit wearing girl in a magical,fantasy setting where only the food looks good,the clothing style is so overused and the story is forgettable

Found a more food focused one for you all

If you all are here for food then I’m sorry food gets pushed to the side a bit in any way here is a better food comic also it’s super soft

I’ve been looking through this comment section some are this I the most unique thing and it’s is super generic and tropy or do we just have a lot of new people here?

@maisonaustyn I liked this at first for some reason. I don't know why I thought this would develop into something good.

can anyone confirm whether they found reading this to be worth it?

Generic historical style isekai #1000001

For real though. This is probably the most troupey and generic one I have had the pleasure to come across. Some of these have interesting ideas while still invovling the troupes like the awful soap plots but this is just bad with nothing original.

Edit: As an add. Normally even if there is nothing original then the characters are at least well done. That is not the case here. They almost seem to lack any personality and the choppy generic artstyle [People get tricked because of how flowy the style is, its just lazy most of the time] doesn't help the boring characters.
