Getting the potts and pans, putting butter and water in them and putting them on the fire, and reckoning it so everything is ready at the same time, is a Magickal Ritual, called Cooking.
Ater that comes the Ritual of Dining:
Laying the Table, Eating, Cleaning the Table and Doing the Dishes is a Ritual to stop being hungry and cleaning up the mess after the ritual.
The Magick Rituals of Cooking and Dining is needed to gain the Magickal blessing of a nice evening and a full stomach.
