If you need someone to cook up your victims into a true delicacy, there's no-one better for the job.
Becoming a Monster Gourmet
People tend to become Monster Gourmets because they are already gourmets, and have encountered many things on their adventures.

All of the following are class features of the Monster Gourmet.
Make Delicious Meal: The Monster Gourmet can convert any creature into a delicious meal capable of serving a number of creatures equal to the Monster Gourmet's class level. Making a meal takes one hour, requires a Profession (Chef) check with a DC equal to 10 + 2 × the creature's CR, and can produce 1 of the following effects. Tome of Prowess Variant: Instead of a Profession (Chef) check, make a Survival check with a DC equal to 10 + the creature's CR.
- Delicious meals are quite perishable, and must be made with only the freshest ingredients: a creature that's been dead for more than an hour is too old to use, and a delicious meal loses its potency after one day.
You Are What You Eat: At level 1, the Monster Gourmet's meals can transform anyone who eats it into the creature, much like polymorph other, with a less limiting CR restriction: the creature must have a CR no greater than that of the diner eating it. The creature may be exceptional for its type, if it was. This lasts for 8 hours. Eating one of these meals takes 30 minutes.
Extraordinary Flavor: At level 2, the Monster Gourmet's meals can grant anyone who eats it a single extraordinary ability of the creature for 8 hours. Eating one of these meals takes 30 minutes.
Supernatural Sushi: At level 3, the Monster Gourmet's meals can grant anyone who eats it a single supernatural ability of the creature for 5 minutes. Eating one of these meals takes a full-round action.
Magically Delicious: At level 4, the Monster Gourmet's meals can grant anyone who eats it a single use of one spell-like ability, psi-like ability, spell, or power of the creature. Eating one of these meals takes 30 minutes.
