Object of the Game

The objective is simple: Be the first to get 5 points by collecting ingredients and completing recipes.


Shuffle the blue cards and deal each player 7 cards. These will be referred to as the cards in your hand. The remaining blue cards become the draw pile and are placed in the middle of the table A.

Next to the draw pile is where cards will be discarded, face up B.

Shuffle the red recipe cards and deal each player 1 recipe. The remaining recipe cards are placed face down to the side to become the recipe draw pile C.

Players put their recipe card on the table in front of them, face up D.

Above each player's recipe card is where the 4 ingredients will be placed, face up E. Those will be the ingredients in play.

To the side of each player will be where their completed recipes are placed, including any extra point cards F.

The player to the left of the dealer goes first. Play continues clockwise.

Game Play

On your turn, you may perform 2 of the following 3 actions. You may perform the same action twice.

1. Play an Ingredient Card

Place one of the four ingredients listed on your recipe, face up on the table above your recipe.

Place only one of each ingredient required to complete your recipe, unless you have a Double Batch, which requires two of each ingredient (see player 2).

2. Play a Strategy Card

Among the blue cards are various strategy cards with different abilities. Descriptions of these abilities are on the other side of this rule sheet.

With the exception of Double Batch and Blue Ribbon cards, strategy cards are placed into the discard pile when they are played.

3. Replace a Card

Discard a card from your hand and draw a new card from the draw pile.

Playing the new card is a separate action.

End of the Turn

At the end of your turn, you will draw or discard back to 7 cards.

Completing a Recipe

Once you have played all four ingredients for your recipe, discard those ingredients.

Place the recipe card in your completed recipe pile, along with the Blue Ribbon card or Double Batch card if you played them, and immediately draw a new recipe card from the recipe draw pile.

In the diagram to the left, Player 1 has an additional point card in their completed recipe pile.

If you complete a recipe on your first action, replace your recipe before performing your second action.


Completed recipes, Double Batch cards, and Blue Ribbon cards each count as 1 point.

When you've earned 5 points, you win!
