By and large the Cook’s Toolkit will probably be the most popular choice for players of Fifth Edition. Not only is it useful for making unpalatable food along the way more enjoyable but it provides the character using it an opportunity to make a living along the way as everywhere you will ever travel will need a cook. Perhaps it is that need for cooks that will make it so popular as players will be able to use it to infiltrate enemy camps, armies, and strongholds as that most necessary of professions.
No matter why you choose the Cook’s toolkit the contents will be readily recognizable to all who see it except for the spice rack. This will often vary depending upon the campaign world but for generic purposes the rack contains the following spices: Pepper, Salt, Cloves,Oregano, Thyme, and Basil. For additional common spices (per the Game Master) add 1 gold per spice. For uncommon spices, such as saffron, add 3 platinum per ounce.
