Preparing dishes and ingredients

Postby pearlbay » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:44 am

The game lets you prepare different dishes for your guests. The higher your level, the larger the array of dishes you may prepare.

To prepare a dish, you first need the required kitchen appliance: to produce pasta with tomato sauce you need a stove, to prepare an espresso, you'll need a coffee machine, for instance. Each dish also requires ingredients. You'll be able to collect them either in your own (see here) or your friends' cafés (see here), or prepare them yourself. In general, however, you'll purchase them in the shop.

How and where can I buy ingredients?

Click the icon of the ingredient shop on the bottom left of the interface. Choose a category, or search by entering a term in the search field. If you want to purchase an ingredient, click it, then enter the amount and confirm the purchase. The ingredients are now in your ingredient inventory, and will be available to you directly as you proceed cooking. Close the shop, by clicking the "Close"-button on the the right-hand side.

How do I start preparing dishes?

Image

Click on a kitchen appliance (stove, coffee machine, oven...), and select the recipe in your interface.

Once you've got all required ingredients, you can proceed to prepare the dish. This will gain you points and use up energy. Preparing a dish will take a short while. You'll be able to reduce the time by clicking the kitchen appliance and selecting "complete immediately". Depending on the dish, you will receive a different amount of helpings.

Once a dish is prepared, you need to place it on a free counter, to serve it to your guests. Depending on the dish, this will cost you a bit of energy.

Master's stars

Preparing a dish repeatedly will increase your mastery. Once you have prepared a dish a predetermined amount of times, you'll gain a master's star. The more master's stars you have, the faster you'll be able to prepare the dish. The amount of master's stars you currently have will be displayed on the top right of the recipe's name when you click a kitchen appliance and choose the recipe.

Preparing ingredients yourself

Some ingredients can be produced by yourself. This requires you to have a special appliance, however. Place the appliance, then click it. After that, the process is exactly the same as when preparing dishes. Preparing ingredients will cost you time and energy, but will give you a proportionally higher amount of points. Plus, on a long-term base, the products will be cheaper than if you were to purchase them in the shop. As soon as an ingredient is fully prepared, all you need to do is click the appliance, and the ingredient will be placed among your stocks.
