Grab your fellow chefs and get cooking with A la carte, a game of dexterity and delicacies for 3-4 players. Hone your culinary skills by adding spices and cooking your masterpiece to the perfect temperature. Be careful not to overspice or overcook your dish, because a ruined meal ends up in the garbage. This lighthearted cooking game by Karl-Heinz Schieml is sure to be a hit with the whole family. 

Become a renowned professional cook by mastering Tarte Flambeé, Spaghetti al Rabiata, Coq au Vin, and other tasty recipes. The more dishes you complete, the closer you come to winning. With quirky and delightful illustrations, you are going to want to try your hand at creating all of these tasty dishes.

To begin A la carte, you receive a stove and pan with which to cook a range of delectable dishes. Each player then selects a meal and attempts to skillfully complete it by adjusting the heat level of their stoves to the perfect level, or pouring spices into the dish to get them just right. You can also take a coffee break in order to exchange stoves with another player, gain an extra turn, decrease the heat on rivals’ stoves, or even add spices to another player’s dish in an attempt to ruin it. It’s all fair game in A la carte.

To win, complete as many meals as possible, since each one adds to your score at the end of the game. Any time you lose a dish because it is overheated or overspiced, you’ll lose precious points. So, work quickly to get ahead, and do your best to avoid any catastrophes that could fork your chances of winning.

In order to spice a dish, you literally pour spices out of a bottle into your pan. The spices can be fickle, though. Some pours result in the perfect amount of spice, but other pours yield too much spice and destroy the dish altogether, and some pours may provide no seasoning whatsoever. Each spice bottle also contains a small amount of salt, and if three or more salt crystals make it into a dish, it is ruined. It takes patience to master the art of seasoning a dish, and even then it can be a risky endeavor.

Another way to score points is to attempt to cook a crepe. This dish is unique because you must flip the crepe token in the pan in order to complete the dish. While this dish does not require any heating or seasoning, it does take a steady hand to flip and catch the token. Players who can flip their crepe token in only one or two tries can quickly return to cooking other dishes with a nice victory point bonus, so honing your flipping skill is critical.

A second helping

If you are ready for another serving, Dessert expands the original A la carte game. With the addition of another stove and pan, now you can play with up to five players. New coffee cups, dishes, and a special spice mix without salt have also been added to the game. Moreover, with the addition of Menu Cards, you now have the chance to earn even more points by completing special secret dishes. Everyone is dealt Menu Cards at the start of the game, and if they complete the dishes on the menu by the end of the game, they gain bonus victory points.


So, what are you waiting for? Get in the kitchen and get cooking with A la carte and the expansion Dessert. This game is sure to have you and your family flipping with enjoyment and keep you coming back for more.
