The Culinary Librarian Lifetime Wish in Sims 3 has always been one of my favourite, despite not beeing updated for all the expansions added recipes. I wanted something similar for the Sims 4 so I created this custom aspiration. To make it a bit more interesting I made objectives that require the player to cook certain dishes with either high skill requirements in different skills or special ingredients. And of course you will have to eat tons of food to learn all the recipes from San Myshuno, Brindleton Bay, the experimental dishes and Selvadora!

IMPORTANT: It most likely won't work properly with Sims who already learned some of the recipes from Cats and Dogs, Dine Out and Jungle Adventures! It might work with already learned recipes from City Living as the game counts these itself, but I'm not entirely sure. Safest way is to use the aspiration only for Sims who didn't learn any recipes from eating certain foods prior to installing this mod. (After installing this mod you can do whatever you want, you don't have to choose this aspiration right away.)

There is a vast array of recipes to prepare for hungry guests and famished family members. By mastering the cooking skills and perusing the food stalls for recipes, your Sim can become a walking library of culinary expertise.

The aspiration can be found in the Food category and therefor gives the Essence of Flavor Bonus Trait.
