The Sims 4 Stuff Packs are making a triumphant return with the highly anticipated Home Chef Hustle pack. Stuff packs are the smallest add ons for the Sims 4, and it’s been a while since any new ones have been released. Before Home Chef Hustle, the last new stuff pack was Paranormal, which came out back in 2021. Needless to say, Simmers are excited to see the return of stuff packs.

EA seems to be pulling out all the stops with this new release, and Sims fans who enjoy a good cozy baking environment will be pleased. Home Chef Hustle is inspired by “kitchens around Europe” which seems to be a code for a certain beloved baking competition show if the previews are any indication. If you’re wondering whether this pack is worth checking out, here are the details to help you decide.
