CastleVille Renaissance Man Quests: Everything you need to know

After the launch of Workshop and Kitchen recipe mastery in CastleVille, we've finally been given the ability to master recipes in the Studios of our Kingdom, but we'll have to complete a few quests in order to actually unlock that ability. You see, a "Renaissance Man" by the name of Giovanni is about to arrive on your Kingdom, and he'll bring you this new feature through a quest set of the same name. Here's a guide to finishing this feature off!
