Please Download the correct version! There is currently a DLC and non-DLC version of this mod available from the downloads section!

Need to get smart quick to boost your Magicka regeneration? Have an apple! Do you feel drained of stamina and need some protein to mend those wounds? Have a nice chunk of beef! Need to buff that eyesight to shoot long range targets with your bow? Have a carrot! What's that you say? Blasphemy? That's right, it's Culinary Blasphemy!
Hey guys! This is my first mod here on the Nexus and it's one that I've used in my personal collection for quite some time. Culinary Blasphemy! aims to make cooking in Skyrim a viable alternative for warrior classes to alchemy! It does this in the following ways:

1. Increases the value and effect of eating foods (particularly when cooked over raw).
2. Adds penalties to eating raw food.
3. Makes harder to obtain foods worth more in terms of the effects they give you.
4. Attempts to give foods effects which are similar to their recipe/attributes ex. clams for speech as an aphrodisiac!

Now then, all stat bonuses provided by food are fairly reasonable and I have made a short list (shown below) to help illustrate what kind of changes are made. Given the rarity of food in skyrim and the overall weight costs assigned to each of them, it seemed silly to leave them as they were: useless inventory clutter. Now, food is no longer for petty immersion, but for actual gameplay as well. Moreover, throughout my game time in skyrim (nearly 600 hours) I've realized, food is harder to come by (especially cooked food that isn't just stolen) than potion ingredients. You'll find a hard time buying ingredients as their costs have been substantially increased in vendors, but that chunk of venison you chop off your recent Elk kill isn't just a waste of space anymore... it could be the lifesaving chunk of deer meat that saves your life!

Again, this mod was created for personal use so suggestions to the "balance" of it will most likely be ignored. If there are any real issues concerning its functionality or something I may have missed, please feel free to post in the comments!
