Carl's Sims 3 Guide - Skills, Traits, Careers, Rewards, and Lifetime Wishes for Ambitions and World Adventures

The Sims 3 Culinary Career Track

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.

Culinary Career Track in the Sims 3To apply for the culinary career track in the Sims 3, have the Sim head to one of the restaurants in town. Naturally, this career track will require a very high cooking skill. At the tenth level, Five Star chefs will receive a master chef fridge which serves as an awesome trophy and will improve all meal quality. Look for it in the family inventory under build mode after receiving the refrigerator. Chefs will also receive free meals from restaurants in the higher levels.

Good Traits for The Sims 3's Culinary Career Track

Natural Cook
Of course the only trait that is directed at cooking helps with this career track. This will help your Sim to learn cooking faster, and produce higher quality meals.

My stand-by trait for career tracks where your Sim needs to befriend the boss and co-workers pops up again here. Befriend them all early and your Sim will have a very easy climb to the top level job.
