Tips Edit

  • Sims can unlock 4 additional food recipes when entering the energized, playful, flirty, or angry emotions.
  • When completing the "Master Chef" aspiration, Sims create high quality food that never spoils.
  • When Sims are ready for some of the regular meals (not quick meals) from fridge, they can use the "Cook" (select any serving), "Serve" (party size serving), or "Have" (single serving) options.
  • Having high quality ingredients from gardening increases the quality of the food.
  • Fresh ingredients from the Sim's inventory will be highlighted green in the recipe panel.
  • The cost to prepare food decreases when a Sim uses their own ingredients.
