A la carte

Can you prepare the perfect dish before being sabotaged by the competition, or will your chance at culinary stardom end up in the trash? A la carte, the culinary game for 2-4 skilled French cooks, pits players against each other in a cooking war to be named top chef. Follow the recipes to heat and spice your dished accordingly while attempting to avoid over-seasoning or burning them. What is competition without a little treachery? Coffee Break tokens allow players to gain special benefits like the ability to swap stovetops with other players. Every perfect dish gains you a cooking star, gain three or be the player with the most victory points to win the game. The finest French chefs need the finest equipment, which is why A la carte comes with four stovetops, four pans, over 50 culinary tokens, 4 spice jars, 80 psice bits, 1 heating die and more.

Can you stand the pressure, or will the competition serve you a dish of defeat?
