Colors, colors, EVERYWHERE!

September 28, 2011

Hi Cooks!

Welcome to a NEW week of items – and this week I’m injecting a little bit of ( – ok more than a little – ) COLOR in Tutti Frutti Week!

After two weeks of cookbooks, I think we’ve all got a handle now on how to improve our restaurants and grab boosts by mastering recipes and cookbooks (if you’re still not sure, head over to the FAQ on the forum). So it’s time to get back into the swing of it all and update our menus and give our customers something AMAZING! Let’s go!

So recipes is a good place to start! Here are this week’s new recipes out NOW – except for the Sunday Special which, as the name suggests, will be out on Sunday for a limited time. 🙂 Have you signed up to the event on the official fan page? It’s a great way for folk to remember!

Functional items help your staff get what they need to do, done! This week’s functional items include a colorful array of stoves (and sinks) along with possibly the most colorful arcade I’ve ever seen…. ever!

Of course, if you’re wondering what you’ll be getting in challenges this week – apart from an array of FREE ingredients, you can also get these items – ONLY available by completing a challenge! Check out the Challenges FAQ on our forum here and then feast your eyes on the prize…!

There’s something extra new this week – and it’s a permanent feature, too! – you can now grow LEMONS in your garden! 😀 Just buy a seed for coins and plant it in your garden patch and watch to see if your little seed grows into your very own lemon! Remember, growing your own fruit and veg can be very rewarding – mostly because it’s soooo much cheaper than buying it from Tommy’s stall (don’t tell him I said that!). So go in now and check it out!

If you’re into collecting Maggie figurines (and who isn’t?!), you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a new one out this week! Add this colorful edition to your collection and it’ll boost the popularity for your restaurant! 😀

Finally, of course, I’ll leave you with a spectable for the eyes – the rest of the catelog for this week’s theme. Remember, items appear in the game on THURSDAY, so this is a sneak peek at what’s to come! Check out my restaurant to see the whole lot in action, too!

Until next time

Recipe Madness!

September 20, 2011

Hi Cooks!

This week we’re continuing getting to know our NEW cookbooks in Recipe Madness week!

Let’s jump straight in with challenges!

This week’s challenge rewards are focused on ingredients for your recipes (see more below) but also it’s all about the Gold Maggie – can you master enough recipes in time to get this coveted trophy? 🙂

If you’ve been doing challenges last week, you might even have the Bronze Tommy , Gourmet King and Silver Maggie already! So this will make a great edition. 🙂

If you want to see what recipes you can master this week to help you on your way, here you go:

This week’s recipes will each go into a cookbook so be sure to check them all out and see which one you can learn and improve all the way to mastering it.

If you’re raring to get started on challenges, check out the FAQ on the forum and don’t forget to check the fan page daily – I’m giving away ingredients all week that you’ll need for these recipes, so be sure to collect them all!

Finally, this week, as we’re still getting used to the NEW cookbooks, I thought I’d use this opportunity to bring back some old favorite items, each day in my boutique!

Each of these items is out for a day – and you’ll need to check in to my boutique to see which set is out when. 🙂 But you can also find out on the fan page, so be sure to keep an eye on it!

Ok! Let’s get cooking! 😀

Until next week…

Introducing NEW Cookbooks in Restaurant City! :D

September 16, 2011

Hi cooks!

I’m so excited about this week’s newest feature – NEW COOKBOOKS! That’s right, cooks – for a long time you have been asking for an easier way to manage your recipes and see how you’re doing. 🙂

Well after a lot of hard work I’m happy to introduce this new feature. Check out these guys:

Your cookbook collection starts off with the Essentials, and as you progress, opens up to a whole world of culinary delights! Have a good look through and feast your eyes on all of your existing recipes, see how far you’ve come in mastering them and how many you have left to master to complete cookbooks!

Every recipe counts!

That’s my new motto, cooks! With the new cookbooks, mastering a recipe really matters – with new boosts when you do! Each recipe now gives you one of three boosts: a coin boost (earn more coins!), a gourmet points boost (earn extra gourmet points!) or a popularity boost (give your restaurant a popularity boost!) when you serve that mastered recipe!

And when you master a whole cookbook, you’ll get an unbelievable speed boost for your waiters! They’ll walk 50% faster – which means they’ll be able to serve more customers and earn you more coins!

Better organised!

You can find your recipes by category and each cookbook is split up into starters, mains, desserts and drinks! PLUS you can find all of your favorite collectibles recipe in books, too! Want to make your menu all about Japanese food? Just take a look at the Japanese cookbook and start cooking up a storm!

Your new strategy!

Now that every recipe counts, your menu will reflect just how efficient your restaurant is! Be sure to serve recipes you’ve mastered to get your boosts – but impress your friends too with your menu! Likewise, be sure to start checking out what your friends are serving so you can get that edge on your competition (feature coming soon)!

New recipes to celebrate!

Now we’ve got these great new cookbooks, I’m releasing a new recipe EVERY DAY for a week to keep you busy. 🙂 Check these guys out!

Naturally these recipes will be related to daily challenges – be sure to read the challenge text each day to know how you can get your rewards!

You can learn more about the challenges here! This week is all about helping you get to know your cookbooks but there’s still plenty of items available in the game for you to play with and come up with amazing new designs.

It’s The Maggie Show!

September 6, 2011

Hi Cooks!

Welcome to this week’s new theme! Can you guess what it is yet? 😉

Yup, we’ve decided to shoot my very own TV show and now you can join into the fun, too! Head on over to my restaurant to see the full set, and take a sneak peek at the catalogue below!

Let’s go!


This week there’s a great little set for you to master. Want your very own audience for your show? Well, start with the Sausage and Beans Casserole (my very own recipe 😉 ) and unlock Alessandra Clapper and an exclusive recipe, the Tropical Fruit Juice (mnnn!). But who’s Alessandra going to give the cue to? Your audience, of course! But you’ll need to master the Tropical Fruit Juice to get them!

You can find out more in-game!


This week’s limited items is a cooking show director’s dream! Collect all three cameras and each one adds a special boost to the Studio Control Booth! Watch the booth animate differently as you add new cameras!

This week’s rewards are pretty cool. The Sunny Kitchen Stove is 3% faster than a regular one – and you can get this FREE when you complete a challenge!

Every now and then you can take part in a cooking adventure – this week you can help me set up my tv show and check out the great rewards you’ll get for completing it!

Of course, what is Restaurant City without new recipes to master for your menu? 🙂 Enjoy these delicious new recipes that I came up with – my personal favourite is the Creamy Vegetable Korma… mmmnnnn!

And finally… what you’ve all been waiting for. 🙂 Check out the new decorational items for you to play with! Remember, these will all be out on Thursday. 🙂 So until then… make sure you don’t drool on your keyboards too much!
