Cooking and Catering

COOKING AND CATERING
The idea behind this feature is to create a more profitable market for the products that you grow yourself in the Farming Fields and Garden Plots north and west of Olde Yorke. Cooking and Catering involves a bit of legwork, but is also very rewarding, since the customers pay a good price in TOKENS - a lot more than you can get for the undeveloped farming and gardening products.

Some of the ingredients you'll have to collect and develop yourself. For instance; milk from milking cows can be turned into cream, butter and cheese in the Dairy south of Old Yorke, eggs and chicken filets can be procured in Old Sally's Chicken Farm on North Wall Road, and fruits can be picked during autumn in the Orchard south of Olde Yorke. Other ingredients, like various spices, have to be collected all over the realms.

When you have got all the ingredients together, you need to find a KITCHEN somewhere, to COOK the dish of your choice. You'll get help there with the preparations for cooking, but only if you are a legitimate cook, possessing Ma Brown's Recipe Book.

After finished cooking, you can TRADE the dishes to 12 different Taverns, 4 in each dimension. Their prices are generally very good, but will vary up and down a bit, due to the market situation.
You will also get exp for farming, gardening, developing and trading the products.

GETTING STARTED
The person to see to get started is of course Ma Brown herself, who lives at North Trade Road, between Olde Yorke and Osten Ard.
She is a famous cook, with a well established network of of customers, but since she is getting a bit on in age, she's looking for someone to assist her with the job.
When you find her, just say, "I want to become a cook", and she'll take you on as an apprentice. This means that she'll ask for your help with a delivery, but while you are working for her, she'll also teach you the basics of the professions each time you ask for a LESSON.
Once you've proved your valour to her, by delivering all the ingredients she asks for, she'll give you her famous Recipe Book as a graduation present, and you can start your own Cooking and Catering business.
Apart from 8 recipes, this book also provides info about the customers, and where to get some of the ingredients.
