There is currently a procedure in game to produce printed materials. I would say you would need a camera to include pictures. I am fairly certain we have cameras in game already. There may be a post on the in game boards about a newspaper that would have this info in game
As for cooking, personally, my george foreman grill is part of the phys rep for my sandwich making device, but we have no device attached to Cindy's teapot. Simply put, its needed to make tea. I personally feel like anything you need to make your food should be allowed, if you have the procedure. The goal is not to make to it cost hundreds of credits to sell some sort of food. Cindy has a cheese procedure, but I don't have to use that procedure to make sandwiches with cheese on them.
