|Number of dishes you need to cook
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 10 times to unlock it, you can make any dish with 1-star Onions 10 times. But if you have 2-star Onions, you only need to cook with them around 5 times. Likewise, 5-star Onions will unlock the recipe after only 2 uses.
The equipment needed to make Palbochae can be bought from Jeff at the General Store.
The downside is that Jeff sells his kitchen equipment one by one, in 10-day intervals after you buy the first of Gotts’ house remodeling upgrades.
This means that you can only access the next piece of equipment 10 days after the previous one becomes available for purchase.

How To Sell Palbochae
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, talk to him in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as that 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 Palbochae 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 Palbochae.
