Recipe[]

The cook can be given specific items to aid in the creation of new recipes. These food items are more powerful than the Cook's basic food and offer more life, buff duration and an added Well Fed. After donating the suitable amount for each food, the Cook will give the player 5 free samples of the food, except for Bacon, and start selling them. The Cook will take one item per click and can hold on to any number of a single type of ingredient, but will only create new food if the total amount he has is enough.
