Probably should've just said that this was going to be a series of skill challenges and left it at that. >_<

Incidentally, I would consider five servings of Good Meals to have a Craft DC of 16 (check result 16) and a Profession DC of 15 (check result 15).

A single serving of a Banquet-level meal would have a Craft DC of 30 and a Profession DC of 35. Three servings and it's a Craft DC 52 and a Profession DC of 57.

Well, With all these checks, I hope she put some ranks into those skills, which if she was trying for a chef, she should have.

I can see the logic, but even still, most of this sounds way to complicated.

Like, I could see a player asking for the survival or Local knowledge checks, to enhance a bad roll. But to have the DM already have it all stated out ruins part of the fun of trying to figure your way out of a bad roll.

They seem mostly just to be examples, so you can still try to imagine other things to do.

I was following this until that last rule box... at which point my brain shut off. Good page.

Welcome to the difference between 3.5 and 5e :P

Player "I want to cook a meal to impress these nobles"

5e:
Dm: Ok, you said you trained as a Chef in your backstory so you probably know what you're doing. Give me, say, a slight of hand check to see how well you prepare it.

3.5e:
Dm: Ok, so the DC is 30 and it requires training in at least three specialised skills that are used for nothing else and if you haven't put at least half of your points into them the resultant slop i going to get you and your part killed as the Baron dies from food poisoning.

See, in 3.5 that's why you have the GMN-duprt PC do stuff like that because their stat base tends to change as needed.

Nah. In 3.5 you wouldn't have anyone get into a cooking competition unless they'd specifically made a Chef character (like in this case). And the difference THERE between the two editions...

5e:
Player: Okay, so I have a Bard with the Chef background, which gives me proficiency with Cooking Utensils. And I guess that's it? Oh, and they wield a huge ladle as a weapon, which I guess is a counts-as light club.

3.5e:
Player: Okay, my character's a Bard, but they use FOOD for their Bardic Performances- so I've got both Profession:Chef and Craft:Food, as well as knowledge on all the best places to get ingredients with Knowledge:Local and Survival- I've taken this feat from a splatbook that reduces my Number of Bardic Performances Per Day to 3 but makes each of them last for a number of hours equal to my character level without me having to do anything. And I looked up the weapon-creation rules and designed a weaponized spatula that does 1d4 damage x2 is finesse and gives me +1 to Craft:Food rolls- I also have this other feat that lets me add my level to a single Profession skill of my choice, so I've chosen Chef, of course... Oh, and I spent some of my starting gold on a Ring of Ant Haul so I can carry a portable kitchen and all my ingredient without slowing us down.

Cooking Utensils. There is a tool proficiency called Cooking Utensils in 5e that would be more appropriate than Sleight of Hand.

Couple of typos in the fourth GM box. "...like *Surival* to pick out good *ingrediants*".

All that talk about food, is the best moment to instead call for Food... Maybe a Pizza unless someone like a chinese food?

I once made rules and custom cards for a D&D cooking event based on an episode of Toriko. There really needs to be more cooking rules.
