In the beautiful land of Astraea where a gentle breeze blows, a young man named Yuuki awakens with no memory of his past.
There he encounters a guide who has sworn to care for him—Kokkoro, a lovely swordswoman who’s always feeling peckish—Pecorine, and a cat-eared sorceress with a prickly attitude—Karyl.
Led by fate, these four come together to form the “Gourmet Guild.”
And so their adventure begins…
