Roland: Good morning,
Roland: Young apprentis //yeah, he says it in french
Tootsuki Academy Lecturer
French Cuisine Division Chief //Leader
Roland Chapelle //Ro-ran Shaperu, I'm no specialist in french last names so he might not be Chapelle
Roland: You're responsible to make delicacies from the moment you stand on a kitchen,
Roland: For that, neither your experience or position matter...
Roland: In my classes, any dishes that can't take an "A"---
Roland: Will get an "E",
Roland: Make sure to remember that.
Megumi(thinks): I'm too unlucky...!
Megumi(thinks): To have Roland Chapelle-sensei

Megumi(thinks): Last year, an entire class of 50 people got an E
Megumi(thinks): Amongst them 18 got expeled because of that class...

Roland: A standard french dish,
Roland: Just in case, I'll write down the recipe in the white board.
Roland: The time limit is two hours!
Roland: Submit your dishes as soon as you finish.
Roland: Then...Let's start---
Roland: Commencez à cuire. //start cooking
Megumi(thinks): For now I just have to do it...
Megumi(thinks): Calm down...Let's go steady...!
Megumi(thinks): And Souma-kun seems to be confident,
Megumi(thinks): Surely his cooking skills are...
Souma: Boeuf...Bour-what? //random fact, for a while I couldn't remember what was after the bour and got laughed at for it XD
Megumi: Souma-kun, have you ever cooked that dish...
Souma: No, I haven't...
Souma: It's something like a cow line stew, right?
Souma: Well, we'll do it somehow,
Souma: I'll go look at the recipe.
Megumi(thinks): This is hopeless...
Megumi(thinks): I'll take out the beef in 40 minutes.
Megumi(thinks): I'll take out the beef in 39 minutes...
Souma: Tadokoro! Look!
Souma: They have an amazing variety of seasonings.
Megumi(thinks): I look like an idiot being the only one nervous...
Megumi(thinks): I have to go take a dish!
Souma: Tadokoro...You left the lid open?
Megumi: I...I didn't...
Megumi: I mean, we have to let it boil for 20 minutes more.
Megumi: What? This white powder...
Souma: It's salt!
Megumi: Wh...! Why...!?
Megumi: Wh-What to do, What to do!
Roland: ! ...
Megumi(thinks): This meat is useless now...We have to remake this...!
Megumi(thinks): Even though it takes more than an hour to make the meat tender and for the flavor to soak in...
Megumi(thinks): And after that we have to boil it for 30 minutes for the sauce to fit in.
Megumi(thinks): The time left is...
Megumi(thinks): 30 minutes...
Megumi(thinks): Having said that, if we submit this dish full of salt
Megumi(thinks): We'll definitely get an E...Uuuh
Megumi(thinks): Uwaaaan, it's oveeeeeer!!
Souma: I went for some spare ingredients.
Souma: Now, let's do it.
Megumi: Souma-kun, but we
Megumi: Won't do it on time anymore...
Souma: That sensei says some good things.
Souma: Before we are students...
Souma: We are chefs---
Souma: I'll get this dish done no matter what it takes!!
Souma: Help me!
Voice: What about the garnish!?
Voice: Champignon saute...
Voice: And emm, garlic!
Megumi: Here! Salt, pepper, bouquet garni as seasonings.
Guy: Did you see the look on their faces...?
Guy: Yeah! With this they'll definitely get an E!
Roland: A! Next pair---
Guy: It's time for the other pairs to finish...
Guy: We also only have to add the sauce now! Let's hurry and---
Souma: Please evaluate us next.
Souma: It's done.
Roland: It's tender...!
Roland: It's as if the fork
Roland: Bounced on it...!
Thought: No way... They shouldn't have had time to boil...
Roland: ...Your team had an accident,
Roland: How did you complete this...?
Souma: I used honey!
Souma: I rubbed it on the meat before boiling,
Souma: I also added it as a seasoning.
Roland(thinks): I see...! Honey has protease.
Roland(thinks): That made effect on the hard beef
Roland(thinks): And let them make it tender in a short time---
Megumi: B-But why did you know that you could use honey...?
Souma: A long time ago, I was reading a cooking book that said that you could use pineapple to make meat tender,
Souma: But you don't have much opportunities to buy a pineapple,
Souma: So I tested various things to see if one of them could make meat tender.
Souma: Honey can be preserved and it's the easiest to use by far!
Souma: Well, you'll understand after you eat it.
Souma: Here, Tadokoro.
Roland: C'est Merveilleux //Marvelous
Roland: Yukihira, Tadokoro---
Roland: I'll give you an A.
Roland: It's a shame that I don't have the authority
Roland: To give you something higher...!
Souma: It wasn't much! //you know, the same phrase from earlier chs
Thought: That transfer student's dish
Thought: Is better than ours...!?
Guy: The sauce is burning.
Souma: Good work.
Megumi: Umm...Thanks for today.
Souma: It was nothing!
Souma: Best regards from now on, Tadokoro.
Megumi(thinks): We were on a tight spot
Megumi(thinks): And we got an A.
Megumi(thinks): I...Might have been paired
Megumi(thinks): With an amazing person---!
Souma: ...By the way, to commemorate that we now know each other, do you want to eat my new dish?
Megumi: ...! Yeah! Can I!? I want to try it!
Souma: Here! "Dried squid dressed on honey".
Box: The dried squid's taste transformed in a bad way
Box: It was so terrible it felt as if my whole body was being groped... (cd: Extract from a letter to her hometown---)
Souma: I have "squid tentacles dressed on peanut butter" too, how about it?
Megumi(thinks): I retract, I don't like this person!!
Star: A good combination!?
