Many would argue that cooking is not just uniquely human, it is what makes us human. Cooking gave us bigger brains and the free time to tinker and socialize.
If not for cooking, we wouldn't gather around tables to roll dice, laugh, make stories together, and bicker about attacks of opportunity. So I think we owe it to cooking to make it an integral part of Pathfinder and something that anyone from Grog'Huk the Barbarian and Abracadabra the Wizard can do.
In fact, all that is required to utilize the Culinary Magic subsystem is 1 feat and an investment in the Craft (culinary) skill, so you can start making Manticore Chili at level 1. Combat Expertise can wait!
What's in the Cookbook?
The Culinary Magic Cookbook contains updated rules for the Culinary Magic subsystem, previously introduced in Letters from the Flaming Crab: Culinary Magic.
The Cookbook features 75+ recipes that both you and your character can make. What better way to enhance your RP than to share with your gaming group the same Breakfast Pizza that your character makes!
What are print vouchers?
When the book is finished, eligible backers will receive a link to a Print-on-Demand copy. There, you can pay DriveThruRPG ~$5 + shipping, and they will print and ship the color softcover book to you.
Why do print vouchers?
They reduce the risk involved and eliminate funding complications from stretch goals and the Head Chef reward. Too many Kickstarter projects collapse from the costs of over-funding. With print vouchers, we can add stretch goals without the fear of increasing printing costs.
Increase your pledge by the cost of the desired add-on. After the Kickstarter has been funded, you will be sent a survey in which you specify which add-ons you want.
Culinary Character Options: $3

Risks and challenges
We are currently in the editing stage of the Archetype Compendium. Our monthly Letters from the Flaming Crab series is ongoing.
However, all of the base 75 recipes are written. We will only need to write the Head Chef recipes and any additional stretch goals.
Our delivery date of December 2017 accounts for 25 Head Chef recipes and 2-3 stretch goals. If we exceed 3 stretch goals, all rewards may not be fulfilled until 2018. The Cookbook itself should still be completed by December.
