The Magic Chef

Magic Chef- a Prestige Class
The magic chef is a master of both the magical and the culinary arts. A central figure in any royal kitchen, his creations are both useful and delicious. Anything from his kitchen is sought after by both adventurers and aristocrats alike. He sails through the battle on top of an angel food cake lighter than air, striking down foes with a spatula or flambéing them with fireballs. Then he goes home to prepare a banquet for the king.
Wizards and sorcerers become magic chefs to pursue their love of cooking while still continuing their arcane studies. Clerics become magic chefs to honor their gods, who love a good meal as much as anyone. Bards, whose creative passion is music, not cooking, are rarely seen, as are paladins and rangers. Druids use their knowledge of edible wild foods to produce culinary creations at no cost other than time. NPC magic chefs are often found in the kitchens of kings or other royalty, preparing creations of oral and olfactory delight.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A magic chef is proficient with all simple and martial weapons.
Bake Potion: Like brew potion, except you must make a DC 15+spell level craft (culinary) check to create the potion, and, instead of being a regular potion, it’s food. If you want, you may make the potion out of perishable food, and get rid of the exp cost for brewing a potion. However, the potion now lasts only a week, and the DC for creation is 25+spell level.
Weapon to Spatula: Any weapon you wield is transformed into a kitchen implement. The stats of the weapon remain the same. It just looks different.
Food-Oriented: You are now just as much a chef as a spellcaster. Your spellbook is now a cookbook, and you must wear a chef’s hat and an apron at all times or suffer a -2 penalty to your spell’s save DC. Your spells are now of a culinary persuasion. Your fireball or flamestrike is now called flambĂ©, and your magic missiles are shaped like pies. Use your imagination to decide what this does to your other spells.
Wild Food: Before making a craft (culinary) check for a recipe, delicacy, or perishable potion, you may spend a day hunting for ingredients. A successful survival check, the DC of which is the same as the crafting check, means you don’t have to spend money to make the potion or recipe.
Basic Recipe: You learn how to make one wondrous item worth less than or equal to 1000 gp out of food, or one of the recipes at the bottom under basic recipe. Craft it as you would craft any wondrous item, but ignore the exp costs, make a DC 10+item cost/100 craft (culinary) check and, remember, this item will only last one week unless otherwise stated. It also sells for ½ the cost of the usual item.
Medium Recipe: Same as basic recipe, but the item cost limit is 3000.
Advanced Recipe: Same as basic recipe, but the item cost limit is 6000.
Five Star Recipe: Same as basic recipe, but the cost limit is 10000.
Delicacy: Same as basic recipe, but the cost limit is 20000.
Cook Wondrous Item: You get the feat Craft Wondrous Item, but the item is made out of food. Unlike your recipes, you must pay the exp cost and the item lasts as long as you want it to.
People Like Your Food: If you feed a person a basic recipe or better you have crafted that is not more than a week old, or spend a half a day making a DC 15 craft (culinary) check to feed them food, you get a +4 diplomacy bonus for one day with the person you have fed.
People Love Your Food: Same as people like your food, but the DC is 20, or you can use a medium recipe or better, and the diplomacy bonus is +6.
People Really Love Your Food: Same as people like your food, but the DC is 25, or you can use an advanced recipe or better, and the diplomacy bonus is +8.
The magic chef may switch the recipes he/ she knows at 5th and 10th level.

Basic Recipes:
Bag of Bad Meat: Same as bag of tricks, grey, but produces small quantities of undead meat, with the same stats as a Kobold Zombie, but with only the slam attack.
Bag of Pudding: Same as bag of holding 1, but only costs 1000gp, and anything that goes into it comes out covered in pudding. The pudding has no nutritional value and will not keep you from starving, and anything that would normally be ruined by being covered in pudding (paper, fabric, etc.) is ruined.
Bowl of Beans: Provides a +5 competence bonus to the user’s jump checks for one hour after being eaten. Costs 500 gp for the purposes of creation.
Medium Recipes:
Refilling Bowl of Beans: Provides a +5 competence bonus to the user’s jump checks for one hour after being eaten. After one hour, it refills. Costs 2500gp for the purposes of creation.
Spicy Tacos: Allows firebreath for 1d6 rounds after being eaten. Costs 3000gp for the purposes of creation.
Advanced Recipes:
The Perfect Angel Food Cake: This angel food cake is so light and fluffy it actually floats. Allows the person riding it to fly as if he or she had cast levitate on him or herself. Costs 6000 gp for the purposes of creation and the creator must cast levitate.
