Expand your sims’ palate with these mouthwatering food mods!
The world is full of different people with different cultures and different access to edible ingredients, which means there is a wealth of foods available. With globalization we now have access to a variety of recipes that our ancestors couldn’t even dream of!
The Sims 4 also behaves in this way, with DLC adding new foods to the menu all the time. Between Expansions and SDX the amount of different meals your sim(s) can enjoy has grown exponentially over time, and modders continue to increase the types of foods available. Whether you’re looking for more ethnic foods, holiday-themed treats, comfort food, or fancy dishes, these food mods will surely help your cravings!
