allows the magician
to create food.
A magician creates food by the materelization of food items. This makes an item that did not previously exist.
Common Side Effects
A common belief
is that you can't get something from nothing, so an expected side effect
of this spell is that something else will cease existing. This may be anything from rocks or water to the actual ingredients that might be used to physically cook the food being created.
The more similar to the food the destroyed component is, the eaiser this spell normally is to cast--people generally find it easier to believe that flour becomes bread, or even wheat becomes bread, than they do that rocks become bread.
Some knowledge of biology
will affect food creation magic. Better understanding of how the component parts are combined into the final product will make the spell easier and the final outcome more correct.
Knowledge of alchemy
can also affect this type of spell.
Cooking is a fundamental principle of this type of spell.
No knowledge has been found that significantly affects the ability to cast this spell generally. Knowledge of specific types of food or ingredients in a dish may make specializations of this spell more difficult to cast.
Create Food is specialized for different types of food or different quantities of food being created. Better knowledge of the ingredients, taste, texture, or other properties of a dish can make the dish more closely resemble that of the proper final product. Better knowledge of the recipes needed to cook dishes (temperature and time, for example) can make the dish more closely resemble that of the proper final product.
Any of this knowledge also makes the dish more difficult to create (although the end product will be more "correct").
