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,
I'm trying to download this mod (along with the Gardener and NeckerMaker mods). I'm able to download the files but I can't get it to install into my game ("Windows cannot open this file" message). I try manually installing the mods (placed the unzipped file into the "Downloads" folder) but that still isn't working. My game is up to date (1.67 version), I have the required expansion packs (only ones I don't have are Showtime and Into the Future), and I also have WinZip.
Can anyone please help me and tell me what I'm doing wrong or is there something else I need to do? Thx <3
