Tips and Tricks for Top Chef

[Post New]by bfgErie on Nov 19, 08 4:46 PM
Item Names – Before each level begins, you'll receive a list of items that may help in the recipes you are going to be working on. Move your mouse over the pictured items to get their names, this should help you to remember them later on.

Power-Ups – You start with the same amount of power-ups on each challenge. Unused power-ups do not carry over.

Classic Combinations – Once you learn a Classic Combination, they can be used on other levels to earn you extra points.

Stagger Anna – Keep Anna working and keep those ingredients coming. Once Anna has completed processing one ingredient, get her started on the next. Anna will work faster the longer she is working on one ingredient and some items take longer than others.

These are just a few helpful tips for Top Chef. If you have any tips you would like to share with the forum community, please post them here.

The first technique, and probably the most important, is to always keep Anna working at one station at a time. So, once cooking begins, we simply choose our first ingredient and immediately start Anna cooking on that one ingredient. We then have the time it takes to finish cooking that one ingredient to select the other ingredients for this set. Use this time wisely to choose ingredients that go well together and that will reward you with as many classic combos as possible. More information on which ingredients grant bonuses will follow in a later post. This time can also be used to plan choosing ingredients, because we may not always want to put a red onion in a red slot. If for example there is another empty slot that requires a Mexican spicy ingredient, and there is no red chili pepper, but there is paprika available, then we would place the red onion in the Mexican spicy slot and the paprika in the red slot. These sorts of decisions must take place rather quickly in order to avoid Anna stalling on a dish and losing a flame or losing your max combo bonus.


This is lifted from the Top Chef game site, which I can't credit by linking apparently.

Hi all,

I won't put a link, but if you go to the Top Chef The Game web site they have a list of most of the foods that are classic combos. Very cool! I had to study, but I finished the game and only have 3 levels that aren't Top Chef now.

I really enjoyed this game. Challenging, but not about how fast you can go to one place to another, like a lot of TM games.

Susan

Hello guys,I recently discovered great Top Chef the Game! However, it seems that their webpage is not working anymore, so I can't get the list of classic combos that all of you have been talking about! Does anybody happen to have a list and is willing to c/p here? Thanks!
