About Chef’s Delight

After installing the Chef’s Delight mod, you can obtain two new types of Villagers: the Chef and the Cook. This mod is an add-on for Farmer’s Delight so it won’t work without it.

To convert a Villager into a Cook, they will need access to a Skillet. Likewise, to create a Chef, a Villager will need access to a Cooking Pot instead. Villagers with these professions can be found naturally spawning in some Villages in some new structures, which might spawn with other Farmer’s Delight blocks.

When right-clicking these Villagers, you can trade with them. A Cook is expected to make more simple food swaps, with light ingredients and meals. Whereas a Chef might sell more advanced items, including Feasts like Roast Chicken or Honey Glazed Ham.

They’ll also buy items from you, especially Raw Ingredients which brings an efficient way of obtaining Emeralds. Inside the new structures, you can find some other useful items and blocks, such as Cupboards, Cutting Boards, Stoves and Rope which can be collected.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
