Sims 3 Cooking Guide

Many dishes are free, some cost to produce, but other than the snacks they all need ingredients. You can buy these from the grocery store or grow and fish your own. You will need higher skills before some of these recipes are made available to you, but you will also need to learn recipes from the recipe cards available from the bookshop. Some meat dishes have a vegetarian alternative if prepared by a Sim with the Vegetarian trait. Compile your Sim’s cookbook with ease with our Sims 3 cooking guide.

We also have a Sims 3 Fishing Guide!
