BACKGROUND: Chef Torte's Apprentice idolized the baking master as a youth. When he grew up, he travelled to Marrymore where Chef Torte had just taken on a permanent catering job, and he begged the Chef to teach him.
After spending twenty days and twenty nights on Chef Torte's door step, the Chef finally gave in and made the young Koopa his apprentice. Chef Torte bosses his apprentice around a lot, and likes to insult him. The apprentice generally takes this in good humour, but he doesn't realize that Torte is actually proud of his progress as a chef.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"On the right side of the chapel, you'll find a secret entrance to the kitchens beneath the chapel. There you'll find Chef Torte and his assistant putting the finishing touches on Booster's impressive wedding cake. If you jump onto the cake (hey, it could happen), Torte will shoo you away." - SMRPG Player's Guide
