This mod is now obsolete and will not be receiving further updates. I have completely overhauled the cookbook and i'm in the process of uploading the olde cookbook kit here. In the mean time, it can be found on my patreon page - free to download!

What is Medieval cookbook?

Medieval cookbook is a custom food mod that works independently from all other known food mods. It is a book object that can be placed onto your sims lot and you, the player, can interact with the book to bring up a food menu and choose a food for your sims to make.

It's main purpose is for historical players as it contains replacement cooking props for a more 'medieval' kind! (It will not override any other foods so can be kept in your mods folder when not playing historically)

The recipes included rely on in game harvestables (with some recipes not requiring any, such as gruel)

What's included?

The newest version of Medieval cookbook - plus all current recipes up to 05.05.20

recipes

- Gruel
- Pottage
- Onion Soup
- Turnip Soup

- Chunky Vegetable Stew
- Fish Head Stew

- Baguette Bread Basket
- Raised Meat Pies
- Stargazy Eel Pie

- Carrot Pudding

How to use Medieval Cookbook?

I'm not sure what's happening there.. I downloaded the file and extracted it fine with no problems.. maybe re-download and extract again?

I love this one, thanks! What I love the best is that it is one object to place and no extra CC ingredients needed. Love the "simplicity" of that!!!! I truly appreciate your work, thanks!!!

Thank you

There is a decent amount of harvestables in game so I thought it would be nice to utilise them better and give them more meaning to gameplay! Plus it makes my sims work for their meal

I love this and use it Often in Game!! I just wish there was a chicken vegetable soup that had healing colds properties. You know instead of drinking from a bottle to mask symptoms, eat stout foods like Helga has prepared. ;-))

Sadly, it doesn't work in my game. The sims will start chopping up vegetables for the stew, but then suddenly stop and won't progress. Could this be because I'm playing an off the grid household?

Hey I was wondering if this is compatible with Srsly's Complete Cooking Overhaul? I've been looking to try that and definitely this medieval cookbook when I start my medieval longplay.. If someone is using both mods, I'd be happy to hear how they work together!

Excited to try this and wondering is there any chance this would work with grills? If not have you considered making versions of some of them for the grill? Not playing medieval(at the moment), but my sims are roughing it and there is a lack of recipes(especially breakfast food) for the grill and I can see some of these making sense there as well.

And a another thought, have you considered making some prehistoric(fire-pit centric hopefully) recipes? I play history challenge and my cave sims can only eat fish if they want to eat realistic meals that actually use ingredients.Not to mention that white plate -_-

Chicken soup that treats illness(a la the in game orange juice) is an awesome idea. I'd love an Italian Wedding too. I love Italian Wedding especially when I'm sick. Although those might fit better with the modders other cookbook which I'm about to go snag :D

I love this mod! However, I have a suggestion: do you think it could be possible to make this work with off-the-grid lots? Currently it does not (tried it in my game and the sims won't start cooking on an off-the-grid lot yet they resume cooking if I remove the lot trait) and it would make a lot of sense in medieval gameplay. I would love you forever! Anycase I think this is a great mod, thank you for sharing! ^^

Hi! I'll look into this because I'd also love to use the book off the grid (it only makes sense!) but I think EA have coded things oddly so that you can only cook mac and cheese off the grid.. or something like that but hopefully it'll be easy enough to do.. *hopefully* :D

This is a good idea! I'll make a note of this for future updates! :D
