COMPATIBLE: BASEGAME PATCH v1.54 ~ v1.67

This mod adds a Chef Service in your game, so you can hire a Sim to cook your favorite recipe. You can "Ask to Cook" a specific Recipe or let the Chef choose a random one. He will always choose the recipe based on the ingredients available in your Fridge. If you don't have enough ingredients, he will charge you the missing ingredients. The Chef will automatically start cooking some recipes if there is a hungry Sim (Human ChildOrAbove) in your house.

If you have a Butler (from EP3) in your house, this mod will automatically delay the Butler's auto-cook functionality. So the Butler will clean the house, while the Chef will take care about the cooking tasks.

Features:
  • You can "Ask to Cook" a specific Recipe or let the Chef choose one for you;
  • He can cook all the recipes, except the specials (that gives life/reward boost);
  • He will automatically cook some recipes if there is a hungry Sim in your house (you can disable in the Configuration);
  • It's a Live in Service (like the Butler, but she/he will not interact autonomously with your family.); (not anymore, after update v1.5)
  • If you have University EP, he will automatically improve Meals by adding Herbs.
  • If you have Supernatural EP, he will automatically improve Desserts by adding Honey.
  • it's possible to set the "Service Room", the place where the Chef will wait when idle;
  • He will cleanup you kitchen (wash dishes, PutAway Leftover, dispose snacks and bad food from fridge only);
  • If you have a Vegetarian Sim, he will always prefer Vegetarian Recipes;
  • Possibility to disable the PutAway Leftover and CleanUp Food;
  • Socialize with the Household Sims is disabled;
  • Inappropriate Interactions are disabled;

You can request the service using the Interaction on the Telephone (not Mobile) ("Chef Service > Request Service").
To set a new Service Room just click on any LightCeilingLamp ("Chef Service > Save as ServiceRoom").

Hi douglasviega!
Thank you for putting your time into making this (free) very cool mod!
Do you think this mod is ever going to work in community lots as well in the future?
I have always hoped that I could make a Teppanyaki restaurant community Lot in my Sims world one day.

Cool! I changed my computer back to factory settings months ago because of some virus.... All my sims stuff was gone when I re downloaded it. I started again and downloaded skins clothes hair (packs). I put them on my game. When I played there was lots of lag, I moved the mods into another folder. My game was fine. If I add the mods in after I make my sim will it lag?

What a great Idea. But which version do I install? All of them, or just the last update? I don't want to get this wrong. Thanks for making this patch. I hope you make one for the community lots too. It sucks that I can't build restaurants anymore.

Yes, it works fine for 1.63. You must use the 1.67 version of the mod though. 1.54 ~ 1.57 version won't work on 1.63.

Install only one version. The version you install must be relative to your game patch level. For example if you use patch level 1.63 or 1.67, then you'd want to use the 1.67 version.

In this context, there's no disrespect ...We got five minutes for us to disconnect
Let's get retarded in here.
