Where To Learn the Recipe

Cooking inspiration is something that happens automatically as you make dishes with different ingredients. Once you’ve cooked with an ingredient a certain number of times, you can unlock a new recipe that uses the same item!

To learn the recipe for Paella, you need to cook with the following ingredients:

Ingredients Number of dishes you need to cook
Onigiri 10 dishes
Onion 5 dishes
Tomato

The quality of the ingredients you use can reduce the number of times you need to cook with that item. You can check the quality by looking at how many stars the ingredient has.

For each additional star that an ingredient has, the number of times you need to cook with it decreases by a factor of 1.

If a recipe states that you have to cook with Onions 5 times to unlock it, you can make any dish with 1-star Onions 5 times. But if you have 2-star Onions, you only need to cook with them around 2 or 3 times.

Likewise, 5-star Onions will unlock the recipe after only 1 use.

How To Sell Paella

Any dishes made in your kitchen can’t be shipped through Zack and the Shipping Bin. However, you can start selling food to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.

To sell a dish to Huang, stand in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.

Huang will then offer you a price, which you can actually reject for a chance at getting him to bid higher.

The price range for Paella is anywhere between 380 G and 470 G.

If Huang offers you 420 G for the item, for example, you can turn him down and try again to get a higher price.

Keep in mind that his bids will never go lower or higher than this defined range, so 470 G is the maximum price you can get for selling Paella.
