Cafe World Grandma's Lost Dishes: Everything you need to know

If you've ever missed out on a limited time recipe in Cafe World, you're going to love the news I have for you now. Zynga has launched a new feature in the game called "Grandma's Lost Recipes," which will allow you to unlock six dishes that you may have missed otherwise. These six dishes are the Choco-Scotch Clusters, Corn Flake Chicken, Perfect Tuna Casserole, Angel Slices, Chef's Salad and Beef Skewers.

In order to unlock these dishes, you'll need to complete a series of goals, with one goal being available for each particular recipe. Sure, these goals are rather time-consuming, but consider the alternative of never having these recipes in our cookbooks, and I'm sure you'll see the value in completing them. We'll start with the Angel Slices dish, which is earned by completing the goal of the same name.

Cook 50 Dishes
Ask for 10 Translation Books
Ask for 8 Magnifying Glasses

Notice the wording here: Just cooking 50 Dishes is incredibly easy, and can actually be fairly cost effective if you choose to "cook" a very inexpensive dish. Just set dishes to cook, delete them from your stoves, and start all over again to quickly finish this task. Meanwhile, you'll need to ask your friends to send you the Books and Magnifying Glasses. Finish this goal, and just like that you'll have access to serving Angel Slices in your Cafe.

Unlock Tuna Casserole:

Cook 50 Dishes
Ask for 8 Translation Books
Ask for 13 Magnifying Glasses

Unlock Corn Flake Chicken:

Serve 70 Dishes
Ask for 8 Translation Books
Ask for 12 Magnifying Glasses

Unlock Choco-Scotch Clusters:

Earn 500,000 coins
Ask for 15 Translation Books
Ask for 15 Magnifying Glasses

Unlock Chef's Salad:

Spice 10 Friends' Stoves
Ask for 8 Translation Books
Ask for 10 Magnifying Glasses

Unlock Beef Skewers:

Serve 50 Dishes
Ask for 10 Translation Books
Ask for 8 Magnifying Glasses

As you can see, these goals are all incredibly similar, and share the common thread of requiring you to ask lots of friends for even more help to complete them. For the Choco-Scotch recipe tasks, if you're having trouble earning 500,000 coins, remember that you can sell things from your inventory (say, duplicate decorations and other items you no longer want) to give you a bonus in profit; it doesn't have to just come from serving and selling food.

Once you complete these six goals, you'll have access to these recipes just as though you had unlocked them weeks or even months ago. We'll make sure to let you know if Zynga adds more recipes to be unlocked through similar goals, so keep checking back.

What do you think of the Grandma's Lost Recipes feature? Had you missed out on any of these six dishes the first time around? Do you think users should have a second chance at limited edition recipes, or does that devalue the recipes for those that earned them the first time around? Let us know in the comments.
