A Cook is a staff of the prison which main task is to cook food for the Prisoners using Ingredients and a Cooker, and wash dirty Food Trays after each meal in a Sink. Each cook will use only one cooker to prepare the meal.
Any unused ingredients will stay in the Fridge to be used in the next meal. All prepared food that is uneaten will be trashed, moved to the garbage area and taken away by trucks.
As of alpha 16, the Cook can now work better in multiple canteens and/or kitchens.
Prisoner Labor Edit
With the exception of being able to prep during the night when prisoners are sleeping. Prisoners who have passed the "Kitchen Hygiene and Safety Program" and are assigned in the kitchen effectively do the exact same tasks as cooks. Therefore it is advantageous to employ as many prisoners as possible as cooks.
