I'm not sure that this is good Latin idiom. I can't find an example in the corpus of a person being said to "make food". There's one of "necessity" and another of "bees" (I think) making food, but that seems to be it.

Perhaps "parare" (lit. "to prepare") or "coquere" ("to cook") would have been a better choice of verb.
