I was thinking about some new food items for a cook, but most of my ideas would require… milk! So I figured I’d go the whole nine yards.
These would require a higher level Shepherd to create a pasture, maybe 3 or 4? Cow would produce milk, of course, and when slaughtered they would produce hide and beef. I think they should use the same feed as sheep, as they eat about the same foods. All pretty standard stuff.
As a side note, like how farmers can only grow certain things at a certain level, maybe that could be applied to shepherds? Apprentices only find rabbits, level 1 chickens, and level 2 sheep?
Second, desserts! (and other various foods)
I’d think it’d be nice if pies were added into the game, berry and prickly pear pies respectively. Hearthlings would love pies and maybe it gives a slightly bigger buff for them over normal foods. Milk is a requirement for many desserts so, cakes and cookies might be a great thing as well. A level 3 or higher cook can make these foods. Maybe if spoiled milk is left out for long enough it turns into cheese; the cook could make it too, what ever works. Since the cows also drop beef I figured that the cook should also be able to make grilled steaks and/or hamburgers too. (I’m writing this while hungry…) Maybe in the future when water is a necessity for hearthlings milk can also be used for making tasty drinks
Thanks for reading and considering it!
