So was doing some research on food, and it appears in the Grocer's Ward each food group basically gives you two attributes. They are conveniently broken out per category. Also within each group each dish has an "optimum" rank. much like weapons and armor do.
Egg Dishes - Attack and Craftsmanship
Grain Dishes - HP and Defense
Meat Dishes - HP and Attack
Mushroom Dishes - Magic Accuracy and Magic Craftsmanship
Seafood Dishes - Accuracy and Control
Soups - Output and Magic Defense
Sweets - MP and Magic Potency
Vegetable Dishes- MP and Magic Accuracy
Drinks - Magic Craftsmanship and Elemental Resistance
I like how each one pretty much helps out 2 of the 4 diciplines.
If I missed anything here please let me know.
