Mystic Chef (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
|“||I'll just switch my 8 ranks in Knowledge (decorative cake frosting) to 8 ranks in Knowledge (suspension bridge engineering).||”|
Lets face it, with out food no adventure would go anywhere, except maybe go hungry. And in a world full of magic, why shouldn't the arcane arts and the culinary arts be mixed from time to time? This is what Mystic Chefs do every day. Where wizards have wands, Mystic Chefs have wooden spoons. Clerics have divine focus and Mystic Chefs have ovens and bowls. So lets see whats cooking, its bound to be magically delicious!

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are class features of the Mystic Chef.
Serving Size: When you create a magical food, if multiple people eat from it, the magical bonus is evenly distributed among them. For example, a cake of cure light wounds heals for a total of 6 damage. If 3 people eat from it, they all are healed for 2 points.
Culinary Knowledge A mystic chef spends lots of time around food, baking food, eating food, researching food, and as a result he know a lot about it. Similar to the bardic knowledge ability this class feature lets him make a special knowledge check with a bonus equal to his intelligence modifier and his Chef levels. This check will reveal knowledge about foods including local cuisines, where to find raw ingredients, what parts of a creature can be used among other information.
An Art or a Science?: Choose either charisma or intelligence. You now add that modifier to the caster level of the spell when crafting foods.
You are what you Eat When creating the food, you have the option to let the food give the eater the ability to cast the spell once, similar to a tasty scroll.
Spell Like Abilities At 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th level, you gain spell a like ability usable at will. At 3rd level you gain the Create Food and Water spell, however you can not use this spell to craft magical foods. At 4th level, you gain the Identify spell, however, this only works on magical foods.
Spellcasting: At each level you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level and spells know as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a Mystic Chef, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
