As it was mentioned on the stream last night/yesterday by Tom i thought i’d take the initiative to create the topic.
As the title sugguests, what cook recipes would you like to see show up? bare in mind that each suggestion needs to be modelled, maybe there will be different qualities to add more diversity to the dishes and recipes unique to each race.
This topic is only to serve as a reference of ideas…
Tom considered the possibility of vegetarian meals too (which makes me happy, boo the trapper!)
I guess we can use this place to come up with new crops too
List of ingredients currently: (ingredients for a recipe)
List of recipes from stream:
Carrot Cake (MrLurid)
Turnip Puree (MrLurid)
In the latest stream, Tom said we should post if we have some ideas about Cooking Recipes and new crops to go with them. I figured I’d give it a go. Just going to throw out a bunch of ideas and see if any stick.
Rice (only possible with access to water)
Sugar (cane or beets)
Sheep’s Milk (gathered by Shepherd)
Fish (gathered by Fisherman)
I like your ideas, but I have an issue. Personally, I despise the idea of a cook making baked goods (with no offense against you) I think there should be a separate baker class. The cook would focus on preserving food. Meanwhile the baker’s goods would focus on making settlers happier, but baked goods would spoil nearly as fast as unrefined food. Also, the baker’s goods would be useful for parties, festivals, and peace offerings. Not to mention, how are you going to make a pie using a cauldron?
Maybe they’ll have an advanced cook class or they’ll have a second workbench for the cook (a wood stove maybe?). They are planning on the blacksmith needing both forge and anvil, so that would be no surprise.
So far, the lesser spoilage of the cooked food doesn’t really seems to be more gameplay-based than reality-based. Vegetable Stew and Meat Stew were the initial things being worked on. The dessert suggestions are based on Tom talking about wanting to add some desserts for high-level cooks.
Having a baker could be cool, but I worry that it’ll just increase the number of jobs you need early on too much. Maybe if it is a class that advances from the Cook?
And now I’m reminded of another recipe…
Jam: Berries, Sugar.
Mushrooms(must be grown underground)
Grapes(maybe require an arbor from the carpenter?)
Kelp(must be planted in water)
Hot and sweat peppers
Spices(I figure keep it generic)
