Discover and create new foods to give you the meals that your stomach deserves! This add-on was created to give you a challenge and make you eat more than just a few portions of beef every now and then.
Strat's Food Expansion! This add-on nerfs all existing vanilla foods and requires more progression for you to obtain a fulfilling snack!
In my best way possible, I've provided information on all equipment in the Cook Book, and an intro to the add-on, so you don't have to read much of this page.
As you explore, you will encounter some things that will help you make some of your favourite foods.
When breaking these, you will have a chance of obtaining most of the new crops: tomato, lettuce, tea leaves and coffee beans, along with other vanilla crops, like potatoes, melon seeds, etc.
There are four new types: Forest Bushes, Taiga Bushes, Tropical Bushes and Torrid Bushes.
You can also collect them by using shears!
Each crop bush type has their own unique drops.
Strato' Soil + Copper Crop Pot
Due to the unfixed Minecraft bug that causes crops to pop off farmland, these two blocks are an alternative to farmland, allowing you to farm in style!
Maple syrup can be gathered from this tree, by using a glass jar when the syrup on the logs has matured.
A whole wood set is also introduced by this tree:
Maple Stairs do not currently have an accurate collision box, and instead work like slabs for now.
A Maple Leaf can be dropped by Maple Leaves, allowing you to make Leaf Piles (as shown on the far right).
Occasionally, you will also come across different types of crops on trees, which cannot be found in the crop bush, e.g. oranges and coconuts.
Salt Ore is a white ore, found in caves and mountains. When mining this, you can get from 1-3 pieces of salt, which is a key ingredient for making a lot of foods (generation now fixed).
This is used to make butter, by placing milk in it and churning it.
Pestle and Mortar
This is needed for grinding things, like wheat to get flour, sugar canes to get sugar and cocoa beans to get cocoa powder for chocolate!
This is used to toast bread, obviously. Just slot some bread slices in the toaster and it will become toast.
This can be buttered and even jam or marmalade can be added to it!
This is needed to cut food on the Chopping Board.
Netherite Kitchen Knives are now also available, if you are committed enough for one.
This is mainly used to cut foods into slices and more (recipes shown in the Cook Book).
An integral part of your kitchen.
Used for baking cakes, pies and for general cooking.
Once powered with typical furnace fuel, the door can be opened to begin baking.
This is used for making soups/stews and other recipes, such as salt and cheese.
Note: This can only be placed on furnaces or stoves.
This is used to cook many different foods, which can be seen from the Cook Book.
Note: This can only be placed on furnaces or stoves.
Used for making smoothies (recipes shown in Cook Book).
Used for cold drinks, like smoothies and juices.
These are used to make Ceramic Mugs by smelting them.
These are used for hot drinks, e.g. tea or coffee.
These are needed for making 10 fulfilling meals, like Fish and Chips, Bangers and Mash, Chicken and Waffles, etc.
However, they become dirty and are only a one-time use.
These are used to make Ceramic Plates by smelting them.
These are an alternative to Paper Plates but are reusable and also now placeable!
A big change to food is that it now has varied duration levels, depending on how many hunger points the food gives.
Because there is a lot of food in this add-on, I'll only give a few examples.
Bread has been tweaked to become a loaf and its recipe has been changed to make it more difficult to obtain.
First, you will need to make flour, using wheat in a Pestle and Mortar.
Next, you use water, flour and salt, and you get dough.
Finally, after obtaining three dough and placing them in a stove, you get bread!
Alternatively, you can also get the old bread (baguette) by placing the dough vertically.
Then, you can cut the Bread on the Chopping Board to obtain Bread Slices.
Fish and Chips
Fish and Chips is made with fries and cooked cod.
To get fries, you need 2 potatoes and salt, and you fry them in the frying pan.
And with the fries, cooked cod and a plate together, voila! You get Fish and Chips!
