And here’s how the publisher describes the game:
Chef allows you to personally don a kitchen apron and embark on an exciting career in the wild world of professional cooking. Starting with nothing but pocket change, a small restaurant, and an ambitious dream, you’ll ascend from the life of a humble cook to that of a world-famous chef.
Nothing will prevent you from deciding how to climb to the top of the food chain. Prepare yourself for a true sandbox experience in which all your management choices matter as you build your gastronomic empire. What will it be? A steakhouse? A vegan paradise? A pasta palace? An experimental cooking lab? Only you can figure out which path is best for your establishment.
In the game, you can create your own personalised avatar, who then picks up a range of abilities across six skill trees. You also get your own restaurant, which you can customise the look, feel, and layout of. You can even establish the staff, menu and policies of the place.
When it comes to the actual food, you can make your own recipes using a recipe editor, which rates each created recipe based on its taste and aroma.
There’s also story events in the game, and the choices you will make during them will affect you through your game.
