The Sims 4: Gourmet Cooking Skill Cheat

There are two types of cooking for your sims to learn in The Sims 4 and all sims start with their homestyle cooking skill and eventually are able to gain the gourmet cooking skill.

This skill is much fancier and has your sims cooking items like garlic noodles, herb-crusted salmon and the coveted ambrosia recipe. Just getting that ambrosia recipe alone is a great reason to use the gourmet cooking skill cheat.

Using this cheat can get you to quickly increase your skill and skip past the grind of making meals and wasting money on cooking them!
