New Noob questions

I thought I had a handle on chef, then I started thinking about some things.

For a recipe that calls for Light Food Additive, can you use a medium or heavy? If so, is there any benefit to it?

The new foods coming up, which ones do you think will be useful? Which ones of the old ones will still be useful? Which ones do you think will make you money, or friends, or just make your life easier (like the starshine surprise)

What are your thoughts on the usefulness of the changes from a production point of view? (I mean, leaving out the arguments about what they SHOULD have done, just take it from 'this is what we have, how are we going to deal with it')

any discussion or ideas are welcome, I feel like I"m scrambling to catch up now that I have my structures trader ready for the new houses.

No, you can only use a lower version (A light or medium in a recipe that calls for a Heavy Food Additive for example)

Disclaimer unnecessary, Sobuno, your answer is correct. Trixie, it is the other way around, as S said, and the possible benefit would be the lower production costs, but since we all know that combateers ... 8)

Ah, that makes sense, well, as much sense as anything, lol. I've always used a heavy when called for a heavy and a medium for a medium. So I never thought about it until now.

Got my light tissues cooking right now, I plan to have some 'decent' starshine surprise for me and my friends by tuesday.

Yea, you can always use a "lesser" additive in the spot but never one that is "higher" than what is called for:)
