The Sims FreePlay Guide

The Candlelit Fork Restaurant

  • Bread Winner (unlocks the Cooking Hobby)
  • The Candlelit Fork: Reach Level 16 and complete the "Sous Judgement" Quest.

  • Sous Judgmental (Main Restaurant Quest)
    There is a 7-day Timer that kicks in as soon as you begin this Quest. IF you complete the quest within the 7-days allotted time, the bonus prize is special Chef Outfits for your Sims. If it is not obvious to you yet, you will soon realize that they did not add this just to have a place to take your Sim wife on special occasions - this is the home base for the newest Career Option in the game - Chef.

    * Note: Requires Cooking Hobby @ L4

    Once the Restaurant has been fully unlocked by this Mission and its Quests you then have to repair and upgrade it along the same manner in which The Stables was rejuvenated. You get the same basic feel from this as that...

    Although some players may be having some difficulty with the earlier tasks in this Quest, the first real problematic one is the Cook Pizza for Santa Task.

    Cook Pizza For Santa

    To complete this you will need quite a high level cook. One of our members has already answered the question on how to complete this and I will paste it here with a link back to the answer page:

    'You need to have a stove or fridge. Then, instead of Baking select Cooking. Now, cooking is a Hobby so you will have to get your sim to a high enough level to be able to cook the pizza. After they are high enough, tap on the fridge or the oven and select cooking, then select pizza and they will cook a pizza. '
    - Thanks Keyblade21!

    Serve Santa

    The task immediately following the cook pizza for Santa task, requires you to serve your dish to Santa... If Santa is not around, as was the case for me, and I could not find him, then you just need to restart your game and he should appear in your house! From there you can select you Adult sim character and there should be an option to serve Santa.

    Serve Santa!

    Make Quiche for the Grouch

    After a couple more mundane tasks we now need to make some lovely quiche for the Grouch. Like the Pizza task, you'll need to use a Sim who has progressed sufficiently in the Cooking Hobby... If you don't have one... Then the only way to get through this is to keep cooking anything and level up your sim in the cooking hooby, until the quiche option is given to you.

    Make Quiche for the Grouch

    Once you have made the quiche you'll need to serve it to The Grouch, to do this, make sure the Grouch is around then click a plate of food and select the option to Serve Grouch - It doesn't really matter if it's quiche or not!

    Serve Grouch

    Have a SIm Make Mud Pie

    Originally the task was for a toddler to do this, but over the years, this task has changed any now any Adult Sim can do it to. To make the mud pie you need to go to a garden patch, select it, and there will be an option to make mud pie.

    Make Mud Pie

    Next you just need to have a Sim head over to the Candlelit Fork Restaurant

    In case you have forgotten where it is - Your restaurant is here!

    Next, give The Grouch the Mud Pie and Open the Front Door - And there you have it The Candlelit Fork Restaurant is now open!

    Ready for opening!

    Yes, you may need a microwave, but you definitely need to have a level 4 cook! Keep cooking until the option to cook pizza is available.

    Dear other guest:
    You make a mud pie by sending a todler to the garden like you would an adult. It should give the option to make a mud pie.

    Building the restaurant takes an astonishing amount of time and money, and seems to give very little reward. Am I missing something? How do you get a sim to take a chef career? Is it worth it?

    So the judges all take 3 mins 12 seconds to call, the Grouch's order takes 8 hours - that's where I'm up to at present

    Second judge 3mins 12 secs - I think the timing might be less, the higher level you are at. I'm level 28. As regards to the player who keeps getting the error message, you have to have completely cleared the 3 training areas in the horse stables so that they are ready to use. I am still teaching horse tricks and have 2 stables open and 1 horse !

    If you want to add me I'm Paprikamax in Game Centre

    9) Serve food to Wumples - I served Cheese & Tomato on toast (1 min cook) as the bunny said it would eat anything and it took 10 minutes NOT 4 minutes to eat it !

    My first judge was 3.5 minutes not 8 hours !

    If it is giving you that notice it means you have not completed the stable - you have to unlock all of the stalls for it to be complete.

    How do you build the Candlelit Fork Restaurant when the Stable has already been built? I keep getting this error message when trying to construct it:

    You can't start building the Candlelit Fork Restaurant because Stable is already under construction in Sim Town.

    The Stable has already been completed for several months and I cannot begin construction on the restaurant.

    The hobby quests are flagged by and through it and I think they will be adding a bartender hobby for the bar upstairs perhaps?

    Does this place have a purpose to it? I can cook dishes at home for the chef hobbie. I feel like I'm missing something...
