Culinarian looking to sellFollow

So i have a rank 22 culinarian and in terms of recipies go i can make quite an assortment of goods that provide food buffs.

Some that seem appealing, just to name a few are:

Grilled Dodo: Optimal rank 25, boosts attack and hp

Dried Prunes: Optimal rank 22, boosts mp and mag. potency

Pinneapple Juice: optimal rank 20, boosts mag. craftmanship

Many of these buffs i have used on my lancer when leveling and have noticed significant improvements.

I am however, having trouble sellings goods due to players lack of knowledge/interest in food buffs so im just curious with this information would you purchase these items from a retainer?

All the buffs last roughly 30 min

I have I think a 13 culinarian which I was leveling until I gave up for the same reason. There isn't any reason for players to buy food atm for a bunch of reasons:

A) Really no one is min/maxing right now. There's barely any party play and most players aren't tackling the IT++ mobs that would necessitate the small boosts.
B) Again, we have a food system that doesn't explain directly what the benefits are or how the taste system works (some races find certain types of dishes more satisfying), therefore most will not know (or care) for a long time.

We're still a ways away from the "suishy" revolution FFXI went through.

Having said that, I think the biggest reason anyone should be buying food right now is probably for crafting. I've seen crafters using boiled eggs (supposedly boosts crafting skills) to help them on the tougher synths.

It may also help if you post in your server's forum, assuming you haven't done so already.
