10 for the components alone. Tin frying pans! Cardboard stove with temperature dial! Cardboard wooden spoons as action markers! Actual spice shakers that you shake plastic spice bits into your pan with!
Oh and it's a fun game as well.

Just get it.

An absolute treat (no pun intended)! This game is perfect for families looking for a great dexterity game, or a great "push your luck" game, or a great components game! We had a blast playing this- although, the allowable spice shaker positions proved more challenging than I thought for my 7 year old. He did manage to get it right after some practice and everything was perfect from then on!

This ranks high as one of my favorite light games. This is probably too long as a filler (if played with three rounds), but it is a great closer. The crazy thing about the game is that, for as random everthing is, there really is some tactical control.

Light and silly, this game is just chock full of goofy fun. There is a little bit of a dexterity element (although, not really), but random spice generators (aka, bottles) keeps people actively involved.

Many laughs are had as you balance screwing your fellow players and trying not to feed your dishes to the pigs. The game would work out fine with just one round, though, but chances are you will want to play more.

This is great fun and a joy to play. The crepe is my bane! The expansion offers exactly what this game needed: more recipes, secret bonuses and some fun coffee cups. I'm not sure 5 player is well suited, as it makes the game last longer and it diminishes your control over the dishes that you pursue. I really enjoy playing this 3 player.

This is a perfect example of what a family game should be : plays quickly, almost no downtime, bits are wonderful, no pasted-on theme (it really feels like you're cooking some meals!), unique, interesting tactical choices, loads of fun... what else? A keeper!

It's a simple concept, well executed and fun with stellar component quality. Anybody with a passing interest in cooking who also enjoys something silly and doesn't mind a dexterity challenge should give this game a shot.

Probably one of the most inventive games ever. Visually it is a stunner, and the game play hits all the marks (dexterity, strategy, screwage). All this from the creator of Die Macher?! Definitely a must have and a must play -- excellent.

This is a very fun game, that would be good for families, as it's easy to play, looks great, and is fun to play. It's also a lot of fun for gamers too.

The components for this one are just awesome. It doesn't get much better than this, with the plastic bottles, plastic gems, metal frying pans, thick cardboard chits and the little stoves, with temperature dials. They really did a good job on this one.

Game play is simple and a lot of fun. Check it out. This is a cool light game.

Very fun theme, which makes the game for me. In reality, there's very little game here, it's half dexterity (though completely unskilled/luck-based dexterity) and half luck (die rolls or random draw from a bag). For me the fun comes from the bits (little frying pan and paper stove) and the cooking theme, which is very underutilized. I think that a game like Leonardo da Vinci would be way better with a cooking theme than an inventing one. It's also a little confrontational, which could put people off. As long as the game is quick, I would always be very happy to play.

The rating is based on it being a family game. I have only logged a play in, but I think its going to be a hit with my daughter when she does play it. A great filler that both kids and adults can enjoy.

I love cooking so A la carte's theme definitely adds to the appeal for me. It's a wonky and completely unserious cook-fest that will appeal to non-gamers, children and more serious gamers (when in a slightly less serious mode) - but doubtless the lack of strategic depth and amount of luck will repel some. The production value is great, cooking pans and stoves (although the outting together the stoves is a pain). A la carte lacks the high-pressure and comeptitive environment of a real kitchen - but as a short and strictly for fun excercise A la carte delivers. Stealing of the pans and destrying other chefs' plates adds a twang of viciousness for those so inclined.

I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.

[2009 edition] An incredibly silly game that is very difficult to categorize (dexterity game doesn't do it justice), but which is guaranteed to be a lot of fun with all kind of people. Gorgeous components.
