Cooking for Blockheads

Cooking for Blockheads Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 introduces you about a cooking book in Minecraft. This book will only show useful recipes that you can currently cook from ingredients and devices that you carry in your inventory.


Furthermore, this mod also provides an optional upgraded version of the book that can craft the food by simply clicking on the recipes. There are five new blocks that form a Multiblock Kitchen Structure. It consists of the main components:

  • The Cooking Table is in block-form and uses the other Multiblock Kitchen parts.
  • The Cooking Oven can smelt food items only and provides smelting ability to the Cooking Table.
  • The sink provides water for recipes, the tool rack which can be used to store tools for recipes.
  • The fridge is where you can store all your ingredients.

This mod is together with Pam’s Harvestcraft (and all the other mods including lots of new food). It can get quite overwhelming if you are just starting out in your journey of becoming a kitchen master.
