Time for a Swiss Holiday Getaway!

December 21, 2011

Hi Cooks!

Winter is a great season for food and drink! It’s also a great time of year to spend with your friends and family, especially if you all decide to go on vacation together!

This week’s theme is inspired by our friends in Switzerland. From the recipes to the items, I’m sure you’ll agree – it all looks yummy and cute! ^_^

So without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s out now, and coming this Thursday! ^_^



Remember, cooks, new items are available every Thursday, so this is a sneak peek, but you can also unlock some of the items via challenges! Head in now and take a look for yourself!

Until next time, cooks!

It’s a TWISTED Holiday in Restaurant City!

December 15, 2011

Hi Cooks!

Brrrr – Winter is here in Restaurant City and we’re starting to see some very odd things happening! The holidays are looking a little more like Halloween and I’m pretty sure I saw a skeleton reindeer earlier…! :-O

Anyway. Without further ado, let’s see what we can look forward to this week!

NEW RECIPES!

This week’s recipes are so much fun – and a little bit cooky! – and they’re ready and waiting inside your cookbooks right now. 🙂 Check these out!

The Skeletal Reindeer is only available when you master the Frog’s Breath drink – check it out in the Weekly Challenges. 🙂

NEW FUNCTIONAL ITEM!

This week’s functional item is a stove that’s a whole 20% faster! 😀

NEW DECORATIVE ITEMS!

As you know every Thursday new items pop up in the shop – so let’s take a sneak peek at what’s to come! Just a note, cooks: the Skeletal Reindeer isn’t something you can buy – you get it by mastering the Frog’s Breath recipe. 🙂 But doesn’t it look good in the full collection? 😀

Until next time cooks…!

BEST ADVENTUROUS RESTAURANT 

1st Place – Knalltute – Shadowland

 

Knalltute says: “Halloween itself inspires me every year, I like the spooky atmosphere a lot. [I’ve been playing] since autumn 2009 [and I will] donate some [of the cooking cash] to designing contests in our great RC forum and spend some for beautiful decorative items.”

 

 

BEST REALISTIC RESTAURANT
1st Place – Pyrographer – The Pepper Mill

 

 

Pyrographer says: “My design was inspired by the Pizzeria (it’s so cute) and the Venetian deco items (they are so beautiful).  I’m also inspired by the design competition we hold in the Forum Gallery. I have played Restaurant city since August of 2009 and I love it!!! [I’m also] the organizer for the Restaurant of the Month competition in the Forum Gallery for the month of December, so I will probably [my cooking cash] for prizes. :D”

 

 

BEST ROMANTIC RESTAURANT
1st Place – Scouse Thumper – Breeze Hotel

 

 

Scouse Thumper says: “My design was insipeed by the idea of a romantic hotel for adults. I have been playing for around 2-3 years and im not sure what I will spend my cooking cash on, hopefully some great Christmas items.”

 

 

BEST MESSAGE IN A RESTAURANT
1st Place – Vcshox – Seashore Castle

 

 

This entry won by public vote and I think it’s a really beautiful little design. In their submission, Vcshox said: “I heard a lot [of stories] about prince and princess in my childhood, I always dreaming on live in castle . . . But when I tripped to Germany, I saw many real castle close to Seine river . . . I love bird’s sounds [it] make[s] me feel peaceful.”

 

 

BEST NATIONAL RESTAURANT
1st Place – Willrox – Greek Getaway

 

 

Willrox said: “I saw the competition on the [Restaurant City] forum, and even though I don’t do many designs decided to give it a shot. I had always loved the Greek theme, ever since it had come out, and also loved the idea of a little cafe, so I decided to combine the two into one and see how it went. Surprisingly, I received really positive feedback and I was really pleased 🙂 I’ve been playing since 2009, but I’ve been on and off. Stopped for around year, but came back at around the time of the Karaoke Bar, which was also around the same time at which I joined the forums. Have met lots of wonderful friends that I would never have had the experience to meet if it weren’t for the forums; I’m really glad I joined! 100 Cooking Cash… WOW! It will be divided, definitely some of it will go towards contests on the forum, some will go to people that I know, who can’t afford cooking cash items, and some might join my personal collection :)”

 

 

Keep an eye out for our next competition, cooks, and remember, you never know if you could win until you try! – Maggie x

Aaaar! Pirates in Restaurant City!

December 7, 2011

Hi Cooks!

It’s time for a new theme and this week Pirates have landed from far, far away in Restaurant City! They look very hungry indeed – do you suppose they’ll like the new recipes I have planned for them? 🙂

Thankfully we have lots of Pirate themed recipes to put on our menus this week! Maybe these will keep them happy! 🙂 Also, keep an eye out for the Sunday Special recipe which will only be out for 24hrs on Sunday!

This week’s functional items are very much in theme! The Hidden Treasure is definitely what I’ve got my eyes on… do you think you could get it, too?

If a challenge is what you want then a challenge is what you’ll get! If you can get your hands on these little guys – which one would be your first mate? 😀

But there’s so many other items coming out this week! Feast your eyes on these and I’ll see you on Thursday when they’re all out for us to play with! 😀

Until then, cooks…
