Hiya! I’m actually the designer for The Cook playbook linked earlier in this thread! Super humbled to see it here so huge thanks for mentioning it I’ve since made an itchio and a few changes to the playbook itself (https://tolinky.itch.io/the-cook)
You may be surprised to know that I actually ran into another in progress chef playbook while getting feedback on my one (https://www.notion.so/zackeys/The-Battlechef-Alpha-b7e0c000cfdd4726bc427e050324aea7 by Dristan in the Waypoint discord). There must be something particularly delicious in the Dungeon this season that’s been inspiring folks. I’ll say as well that I think having another take on this will be fantastic. There was a lot of very broad ideas I had for my playbook (chef battles, running a resturaunt, cannibalism, rolling recipes on tables, etc etc) that I threw out for the sake of focus and being able to fit the thing on a page. If there can be dozens of distinct playbooks about fighting and dozens about magic I’m sure there’s more than one way to skin a dire rat when it comes to cooking.
In regards to feedback I love love love the idea of having different schools/cultures of cuisine and I like your use of non-stat based buffs (e.g. being able to locate people who have eaten your cuisine). Also your names are brilliant. Only improvement I can think of is that you should slap a price tag on this because it’s good enough to sell.
