This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.

Traits

  • The Natural Cook Trait in the Sims 3Natural Cook
    The Natural Cook trait improves the cooking skill in multiple ways. It is the single best trait for a chef. Natural cooks will make higher quality dishes, and can kick food up a notch to increase the quality further. They also learn the cooking skill faster, which is a major plus for sims in the culinary career track. What's more, they'll no longer burn food.
  • The Perfectionist Trait in the Sims 3Perfectionist
    The Perfectionist trait causes Sims to spend more time on things like cooking and painting. In the case of cooking, it will take longer but produce a higher quality meal.

  • The Green Thumb Trait in the Sims 3Green Thumb
    This is very helpful for getting ambrosia. Green Thumbs learn the gardening skill faster, and their plants produce fruit at one quality level higher than normal. This can save them an entire generation of plants on the way to getting perfect life fruit. Of course, this also helps with any other produce ingredients. Gardeners can plant high quality lettuce and make perfect autumn salad easily.

  • The Angler Traitg in the Sims 3Angler
    Another helpful trait for getting to be able to cook Ambrosia. Anglers learn fishing faster and catch more fish in general. They'll have an easier time getting perfect death fish for ambrosia.

  • The Vegetarian Trait in the Sims 3Vegetarian
    This can be useful if your Sims are vegetarians. Chefs with this trait will learn dishes with meat substitutes that are vegan-friendly.

    Lifetime Wishes

  • The Culinary Librarian Lifetime Wish in the Sims 3Culinary Librarian
    Sims with The Culinary Librarian Lifetime Wish desire to learn all recipes in the game. This is easily accomplished by buying all of the recipes from the book store. You may also want to watch cookin' cable, and trade recipes with other Sims who are good cooks by using share cooking secrets.

  • The Celebrated Five-Star Chef Lifetime Wish in the Sims 3Celebrated Five-Star Chef
    This ambitious Sim wants to make it to the top level job in the culinary career track. A high cooking skill will be required early in the career to excel, so natural cooks will have a much easier time. You may want to have your Sim learn a couple levels in the cooking skill before you begin the career to make it go faster. Less time spent studying cooking between work days means a Sim who can socialize and be happy as they climb to the top level job.

  • The Renaissance Sim Lifetime Wish in the Sims 3Renaissance Sim
    This is included because I feel that cooking, gardening and fishing are three great skills to work together for this lifetime wish. They're so complimentary, it's the perfect fit. Renaissance Sims want to reach level 10 in three skills. A workaholic Sim with Commitment issues can take this wish, and have room for angler, natural cook and green thumb.
