The eating surface is in the kitchen.  Do you mean to put the table in another room from the fridge and stove?  How about the espresso machine?

I have the same problem with Filet Mignon.  Mine want to cook it for every meal, including breakfast, and it starts at 6 cooking points so is much more of a problem.  Of course, that's because I have Squinge's unawesome mods that allow them to cook it at home (as well as Lime-Seared Prawns & Fried Chicken, but they don't seem so interested in those).  They also have an obsession with Ribs, although I think that's from 7 points on.  I wouldn't mind so much if it was only available for dinner, because who has steak for breakfast?  Pregnant Sims maybe, but that's all.  I am forever cancelling it out and getting them to cook something more appropriate. but sometimes I miss it.  The ChristianLov NPC's tend to start cooking themselves Filet Mignon too, but they rarely actually finish.  Luckily, the odd Maxis nannies that I use seem obsessed mainly with Santa cookies, although I do have one that has a passion for Baked Alaska and one that always cooks herself Chilli Con Carne whenever she has a spare moment.

I do. Conventional concepts of "time appropriate" meals are for wimps. Besides, sims, like me, only eat one meal, if that.

Yea, I have the mod (Dizzy's, I think) that lets them cook any food anytime, and they're always wanting to make salmon or pork chops for breakfast. Smiley

Um, no. Smiley  Lobster is a type of crustacean native to the cold waters of the Atlantic and Pacific, usually living very near the coasts.  Delicious, especially the Maine ones. Smiley

Well, you know you can do away with all food just by sticking snapdragons next to the beds, toilets, chairs, etc.  Keeps 'em happy, full, and their bladders empty.

Maybe that's a needed hack: a snapdragon necklace!

When your Sims are treating their food as if it were a therapist, they certainly have need of that goofy Sims therapist!  Cheesy

Heh, long time lurker is amused enough by the mental image of a lobster dressed in a doctor's coat to finally post. Thank you Maximillian for helping me to stop lurking and finally post!

I've had one too many old Sims leave an unattended Lobster Thermidor because I wasn't paying attention to what they were doing.  I'd take it!  Grin

The thing I hate about it is that it is the most expensive thing they could possibly make, and they don't even need to eat it unless they are starving because the food value is so high. Then you cancel it out, but the food is already wasted- on the most expensive meal in the game!

The food value of Lobster is actually quite low. I don't know where you get the idea that Lobster has high food value, it's maybe only about 60% filling. Pork Chop has consistently demonstrated superior food value at lower prices!

And a sim doesn't need to eat, PERIOD, unless they are starving.

Also, with OFB, you don't have to cancel it out. You can let them finish, then take it away from them and stuff it in their inventory, and eat it later by Macro-eat when they're really hungry, or pull it back out the next time the headmaster drops by.

I think this is from the Prima Guide.  It lists Lobster Thermidor as having a Hunger Efficiency of 100%, with a cost of $8 to have and $32 per plate to serve ($5 per helping).  Of course, the skill of the cook and the type of counters have an effect on the final hunger satisfaction value of the food as it's prepared.  Pork chops are listed as having an 88% hunger efficiency and cost $7 to have and $28 to serve ($5 per helping). 

Of course, I know how most feel about the Prima Guide, but this is why most consider Lobster to be so filling.  And I have observed in the game that when a pregnant sim is starving and has high cooking skills, she can fix a plate of Lobster and have it fill her to full green.  But with the No Eat Crap hack, most sims with half a hunger bar who eat Lobster only eat half of it.

Empirical studies firmly disagree:

Lobster Thermidor, cooked by 10-point chef, best cooking equipment available: ~114 FPV.
Pork Chop, cooked by same chef, same equipment: ~150 FPV.

The numbers speak for themselves. A porkchop is worth about 75% hunger, Lobster at 57%. Guess which one costs more?
Conclusion: Like used terlet paper, the Prima Guide is full of shit, as usual. I have no idea where Prima comes with their "hunger efficiency" numbers, because they're 100% USDA Grade A BS.

Hmm, maybe it's time to 'forget' to put a fire alarm in his kitchen, and put him out of his misery. Smiley

That's not a real solution to the problem, though.  If you did that, you'd have to kill every single sim who has 10 cooking points.  Tongue  I use Carrigon's safe cooking hack because it still allows them to burn food, but it doesn't start fires.  When is the last time you had a cooking fire?  How many have you had in your life?  And wouldn't you think a Sim with the highest cooking skill possible would have learned not to start fires?  That's why I don't consider this hack a cheat, but something that makes the game more realistic.  So even if they sneak off and cook burn lobster, I don't have to worry that they will burn down the kitchen.
