Learn Recipes by Cooking

It is possible to learn a Recipe by putting together the correct Ingredients experimentally. If you open your Meals Collection menu, you can see all the available Meals to be made, but the Ingredients for all of the locked ones will remain hidden. Although the Ingredients are hidden, you can still see how many Ingredients are required for them, making it easier to guess which ones you will need, such as French Fries: a potato with possibly a tomato for the ketchup.

Once you collect the Ingredients you believe are necessary for the Meal, head to a cooking station and put them together. The best way to learn through this method is to head to Chez Remy restaurant. Remy will do different emotes when you are creating a good combination or bad combination of ingredients. You can also open your cooking History to see past combinations you have already tried and see what you can do better moving forward. When you find a new Meal, it will be revealed on the screen that the new Recipe has been added to your Collection.
