The Cooking Skill has 2 branches: Homestyle (regular) and Gourmet (advanced).

Sims can unlock 4 additional food recipes when entering the "Energized", "Playful", "Flirty," or "Angry" emotions.

Sims with the "Foodie" trait unlock the "Cooking Show" TV Channel.

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 your inventory will be highlighted green in the recipe panel.

The cost to prepare food decreases when using your own ingredients.
