Are You A Chef?
by Adam Biltcliffe

Are You A Chef? is a Z-machine 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Adam Biltcliffe.

In this unofficial sequel to Dan Shiovitz's bizarre game, You Are A Chef!, you play as someone who logs onto ifMud only to find interrogators threatening inky (Shiovitz) because of his game's extreme wackiness, and everyone else is transformed into fruits and vegetables! Are you a chef? If so, maybe you can save everyone!

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

Note: This game pretty much requires that you're already played the game You Are A Chef! by Dan Shiovitz, aka inky, and that you're familiar with ifMud. Otherwise you're not likely going to understand much of this.

Alex's Perch

Dropping a food item that isn't a person will save inky, but no one else. Only by playing You Are A Chef! are you likely to know that a potato, cabbage, and tomato are the missing pot ingredients needed to finish the recipe (and defeat the bad guys).
