It would've nice if when you cook, you could cook meals on the fire, or in the oven similar to ore in the furnace. This would be nice because you could put some chicken in the oven, go off to complete something, then come back, and take the chicken out. It would also have a system that if you left the food in too long it would loose quality, and it you left it for too long it would overcook and become practically useless. In addition you would also be able to add modifiers like cabbage, carrots, salt and pepper to the food while it was cooking, and if you managed to have the same flavors (ex. Sugar, jalapeño = combo sweet and spicy) it would add bonus quality or maybe short term small special effects.
