Raeger

portrait

Raeger moved to Oak Tree Town to help his grandfather with the restaurant he owns. After his grandfather passed away, Raeger took over the restaurant, which he runs in the same manner and style as his grandpa did. He is always thinking of new types of recipes to cook up in his kitchen.

The chef is available from the beginning of the game. Most of the time you'll find him working inside of the restaurant, but on Wednesdays he'll take a break and appear in random locations around town. You can give him gifts while he is waiting for customers, as long as you walk behind the counter to directly interact with him. If you talk to him from the opposite side of the counter, he'll activate his shop inventory.

Raeger will reward you with cooking recipes when you eat at his restaurant. You will need to order something to eat from him 129 times before you'll receive all of his available cooking recipes.

Gift Preferences

Favorite Gift (+1000 FP)

Sea Urchin Bowl = Rice + Sea Urchin. This rice-category cooking recipe is a reward for winning the crop, fishing, or cooking festivals. You'll need to receive Recipe Set #12, which also includes the recipe for Squid Rice. For the recipe to appear as a festival, you need to buy the Basic Rice recipe set from Sakura Country.

Rice can be for 450 G at the Sakura Country Trade Depot vendor or the Silk Country vendor. Sea Urchin can be caught when diving in the river in the Piedmont area, by Georgio's and Fritz's farms, or in the pond at the Safari Park.

The recipe has a localization error on it, where it says it requires Rice + Basil to make, but it does take the correct ingredients when you go to cook it.

Loved Gifts (+500 FP)

The easiest loved gift to give to Raeger is Seaweed and Yellow Pearl. Seaweed is for sale at the Silk Country vendor for 270 G each starting in Summer of year 1. Yellow Pearl is sold at Mistel's Antique Shop for 4000 G each, which is quite a bit more expensive that Seaweed. Raeger also likes Yellow Downy Tuft, which is also sold at Silk Country for 1500 G, but not until Summer of year 2. You can also find Yellow Downy Tuft within the tree trunk foraging spot in the western Safari Park.

Other loved gifts that he likes are yellow-colored yarn+ and cloth+, Zebu Green Cheese+, and Black Ceramic Plate (made using the Pottery Barn on your farm).

Liked Gifts (+300 FP)

He also likes red and yellow cloth and yarn, golden crops, jams, mushrooms (except for Poison Mushroom), red and yellow flowers (Red Rose, Hibiscus, and Sunflower), Ruby and ruby jewelry, Agate, and Pink Diamonds.

He does like some cooked recipes such as Cucumber Namul, Turnip Salad, Boiled Spinach, Squid Rice, Yam Rice, Yam Ice Cream, Grilled Fish, Fish Ice Cream, and Soy Milk cooked recipes (ice cream, cookies, etc.).

Raeger is glad to see you. He's just made a new cake and asks if you would like to taste test it. You take a seat at the table and eat some of the cake. How do you like it?

You walk into the Restaurant and have a seat at the bar, but Raeger takes a little bit of time to welcome you. He's just a little tired, that's all. He asks if you'd like some fried rice and starts to make it for you. When he brings it to you, he made curry instead! He apologizes for the mix up and runs back to the kitchen, but he stops to catch his breath. He doesn't look well at all!

You must give Raeger a Ring to see his remaining love events. You can make a Ring when using the Sewing Shed Accessory Bench, by combining a Silver ore and a Fluorite. Give the Ring on a sunny Saturday or Sunday before 11:00 pm when Raeger has a blue flower color or higher and you have seen the white and purple flower events. If you are trying to trigger a reverse confession from Raeger, he needs to be downstairs in his Restaurant and not upstairs in his living quarters.

You happen to visit the restaurant while things are going slowly, so Raeger invites you to sit down and chat with him for a bit. Suddenly a customer walks in, a female customer, who begins to tease Raeger about skipping out on work to hit on a girl (i.e., you) when she had tried in vain to get him to skip out on work to be with her. He explains that he isn't skipping out on his duties to talk to a girl; he's merely being friendly to a customer.

Another lady comes into the restaurant to thank Raeger for the cooking recipe he gave. Her family loved the dish! Raeger talks with the two customers and eventually sees them out of his restaurant. You wonder if he is being overly friendly with those girls, but he explains that they are nice people and good customers, so he has no reason not to be nice to them.
