Old Mairn's Propper Marish Meals
Old Mairn is a renowned cook in Grand Marin, she learnt from an early age the value of fine ingredients and combining techniques to create masterful recipes. Mairn began her career as a serving girl for the Duke of Hemsworth, she took over cook duties when she tasted the soup on its way to the Duke's table and realised the chef couldn't tell his salt from his straffire. From that point on her career went from pillar to post. Eventually, Mairn tired of cooking for other people's prestige and ventured out on her own. She compiled her recipes into a cookery book and sold enough to retire on the island of Bilney.
