Bon Appetit abilities can be used by characters who have Patissier assigned as a primary or secondary job. Similar to Catmancy and Cat Mastery abilities, Bon Appetit abilities require confectionary items, which can be purchased from the Adventurer’s shop or gotten via other means.
However, unlike those abilities, all Bon Appetit abilities are available from the start and don’t require any extra effort. Normally, Bon Appetit abilities affect a single target, but if the user has the Patissier’s Items for All ability equipped, they will affect all members of a party.

These desserts are perfect for crippling foes, but don’t expect them to work on bosses as most are immune to or resist ailments. Ghostly Ganache is the best of the bunch, as you can use it to turn your own characters into ghosts who are literally invincible.

The majority of foes have at least one elemental weakness, so these aren’t usually necessarily. However they are still useful if you don’t have a matching spell or attack or if you want to force a particular weakness for a some reason.

The lowest a stat can be reduced to is 75%. Each of these are fantastic options to cripple bosses, reducing the damage they deal to you, etc. Even better, with the Patissier’s Prolong Enfeeble, the reduction to stats will last twice as long (up to eight turns).
