I like the cooking mechanic. I'm really bad at it, but I like it. What do you like to cook to prepare for dangerous situations or a spot of climbing? I'd like to know what smarter players are doing to enhance their experience. I've taken a look at this wiki page to better understand how cooking works but I'd like to hear more organic stories of what the community has made to help them.
I also suffer from the hoarding mentality where I don't want to use any ingredients in case I make something I don't want or need. Really need to get over that obsession.
