Chapter 587 – An Oni Maid Who’s Good at Cooking

Youko-sama is asking something to village chief again.

Isn’t she relying on him too much?

-0-

I’m one of the oni maids.

I have received village chief’s favor but we don’t have a child yet.

I envy Ann-sama for bearing his son.

If there should be an order, the next one would be Ramurias but a child is bestowed by heaven.

After her, it would be me….

And Laladel-sama is crying.

She sounds like she needs a diaper change desu ne.

I just changed it a while ago but this is already expected from a baby.

Fufufu.

This is hard but fun.

Youko-sama asked village chief to hold a special cooking class in Village Five.

If it is only that, she could have just used her authority as the acting village chief and doesn’t need to bother village chief, however…..

She’s asking for our cooperation so she has to get village chief’s permission.

We basically don’t follow anyone’s order aside from village chief.

No, we’re not being mean.

It’s because we’re too busy desu.

We only prioritize village chief’s order.

That’s all there is.

-0-

We are already holding regular cooking classes for adventurers and residents of Village Five.

Because of that, this should be…..

The chefs who came to our special cooking class are not obedient.

I don’t care what their reasons are.

Dishes cooked with dirty hands are dirty dishes.

No matter how delicious it is, it will upset your stomach desu.

Do you know that you should wash your hands before cooking?

It’s an extension of that desu.

Yes, if we tell you to do it, you just have to do it.

Village chief even took time to watch over us, I shouldn’t make him see something unsightly…..

Maybe I should beat them up to let them know who’s the boss here?

……

No.

My common sense has been poisoned by the demon king’s kingdom.

Reflect, me.

「This is a procedure to get a blessing in cooking to make sure that no one would upset his stomach upon eating it. It’s complicated but please remember it.」

Using the advice of the holy maiden Celes, we managed to educate them about the concept of hygiene.

However, it took one day for them to learn it desu.

Village chief, I’m sorry.

……

I hear your kind words.

I should be happy but I’m not.

Because I failed.

My fellow oni maids feel the same.

Good.

Let’s prepare for tomorrow.

We were not prepared enough this day.

We should prepare for every situation that can happen and deal with it.

-0-

What is the result?

The second day of the special cooking class is going well desu.

There are tons of failed dishes but those are necessary for experience’s sake desu.

Also, even if you succeed, that doesn’t mean you can easily do it again and again.

Everyone, let’s do our best.

Ara?

What is it?

You want to be taught something other than basics?

Right, in our cooking classes, we only taught adventurers and normal residents so we only taught the basics.

But, can you do it?

I heard that all participants are chefs.

Okay desu.

We should teach you as if we are teaching a small child desu?

In order for you to understand everything better?

Okay, we’ll teach you as simple as we can.

However, you should think on your own on how you’re going to apply it on your job desu.

You are chefs after all.

…..

There are some chefs who have no pride.

I admire your greediness but you should have attended the regular cooking class if that’s what you really want.

In the regular cooking class, we even teach the participants how to cook eggs.

 -0-

The special cooking class ended safely.

I would like to say that we managed to do it without any major problem but….it was supposed to be held in a day.

I kept quiet.

Village chief’s gentle words still resonate.

Dinner at the mansion in Village Five?

What’s more, village chief will cook himself for us?

Is it okay?

Ah, you’re just watching the whole time so you want to do something now?

I see.

We’ll eat them with pleasure.

-0-

The dish he cooked is a peeled prawn with ground potato. It is fried then mixed with mayonnaise or sweet and spicy sauce depending on your preference.

The dishes that village chief makes are unique desu.

In addition, the concept is out of ordinary.

Where did you learn them?

Oh, I shouldn’t ask.

Snooping about our lord is too disrespectful desu.

We just have to remain silent and serve village chief desu.

However……

I envy Youko-sama, who can talk with village chief about anything.

「Village chief, the participants of the cooking classes said they want to hold a cooking competition.」

Ah, just like that.

Youko-sama easily asked village chief again.

If you want to have a cooking competition, you can decide on it on your own. Why do you have to ask village chief about it?

And village chief, don’t just take on her every inquiry desu.

We still have to prepare for winter and the autumn harvest is coming soon desu yo.

However, we have no right to say anything. We have spent two days of village chief’s time in the special cooking class after all.

We can only shut our mouths.

…..

What is it?

Youko-sama is looking at us.

And then, to village chief….

「I want the oni maids to join the cooking competition.」

……

Youko-sama, what are you saying?

Village chief asked why.

「There are those who are asking about the quality of the maids serving village chief.」

It seems like there are a certain number of butlers and maids who want to work under village chief desu.

It would have been okay if all applicants were excellent but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

They are those who only have self-confidence desu.

Youko-sama wants us to teach them their place.

I see, right.

If that is the case, I will not refuse.

Since they don’t know their place, I’ll personally teach them that.

Then, village chief.

Your order.

…..

Areh?

Village chief, are you thinking that we can’t win?

Are we being unreasonable?

No, I guess village chief doesn’t believe that much in our ability…..

Ah, since you’re the judge, if we join, you’ll be suspected of wrongdoing?

 Right.

We can’t disgrace village chief.

We won’t participate.

Yes, it’s a pity that we can’t personally teach those narcissists but there will be some other time.

「I think the maids serving village chief are skillful enough for you to not be suspected of wrongdoing.」

Youko-sama is saying good words to village chief desu.

-0-

We decided to take part in the cooking contest.

Let’s win for village chief.

…..

Ah, it will be in winter?

We’ll polish our skills until then.

    A stockboy is stacking fruit on a display, when a lady asks “Do you have any potatoes? ”
    The stockboy replies “Sorry ma’am, we are out of potatoes, but we will be getting a shipment tomorrow morning”
    The lady looks around some more. A few mins later she runs back to him asking where the potatoes are.
    The stockboy confused about her mental state simply tells her “Sorry ma’am, we are out of potatoes, but we will be getting a shipment tomorrow morning”
    The lady looks around some more then goes back to the same stockboy and asks “Where the hell do you keep the potatoes, I need some potatoes right now!”
    The stockboy, getting frustrated with his inability to explain the situation, tells the lady “Answers a couple of questions and I will get you your potatoes from the back.”
    The lady agrees and the man starts the questions. “Spell cat for me, as in catastrophe ” she says Ok, “C A T”.
    “Very good!” the stockboy says, “now spell dog, as in dogmatic. ”
    The lady getting frustrated spells it correct.
    Now the employee finally asks “now spell, Fuc, as in potatoes. ”
    She replies “There is no Fuck in potatoes?”
    To which the stockboy replies “THAT’S WHAT I’VE BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU THE WHOLE TIME!”

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Excited for Shokugeki no Oni in the following chapters.

  4. Shino

    It’s not surprising something like undermining VC’s maid happen bcs they want to work under VC but this still annoying, just teach them a lesson Oni Maid-san!!!

  5. CounterMAN

    ah now i want our Oni maid beat them in a food war and maid’s professional war

    1. Booty Whisperer

      I know Youko mentioned her heart only belongs to one man, Hitoe’s father, but I still want her to fall for Village Chief and make fox babies. Hitoe needs siblings, dood!

      1. axisl

        But i thought hitoe was just the copy youko made when she thought she need a child .So,basically hitoe was a part of her and youko dont have a husband .I think it mentioned before youko is is a vargin

      2. Elisus

        When Youko first showed up, she said she created Hitoe from part of her, which would imply there is no father. The fact she mentioned Hitoe’s father later is confusing.

      3. Koffee

        I think Youko meant Hitoe is her other half in the same way someone says their spouse/loved one is their other half. Not sure it said Youko created Hitoe in the sense of self replication, it said in her pov that she “tried having a child for fun”.

      4. Elisus

        So Youko’s POV chapter is 278. She says
        “About a hundred years ago, I tried having a child for fun.

        That child is my other half but I didn’t think that she was important.”
        Youko says that at the time, she didn’t consider Hitoe to be that important, so the “other half” comment makes more sense as being her clone. It’s possible that she required someone else’s help to create Hitoe, and that person was the “father”.

  6. Chronoa

    “prawn with ground potato” is it a prawn korokke?
    It’s delicious. You can make in to a sandwich or a berger.

  7. lycopene322

    I heard Village Chief invites Gordon Ramsay to be the Judge of the cooking competition…

    1. Эрик Жунусов

      Bcz there is no Fuck in Potatoes?

      1. Dan Baruch

        There is no Fuck in potatoes.
        There is no Fuckin’ potatoes.

    2. yomero

      And Ramsay will make idiot sandwiches with the conceited butlers and maids.

  8. Satan

    So why only Anne gets pregnant from the Oni maids

  9. Tree million

    I believe Harrison Ford once deliver this joke I an interview

  10. Ningen wa omoshiroi

    Shokugeki No Village Five

  11. Zax

    Those Oni maids are going to be so fired up for the competition. Thanks for the chapter

  12. Chris Sizemore

    Honestly I’d like to see a scene where the butler and maid candidates just see a line of Oni Maids and give up right there. Only the devil butlers are serious competition.
