Top Chef is a simulation video game that was first released in 2008. It is based on the reality cooking show with the same title. In the game, players are tasked to cook different types of dishes using the given ingredients. Players assume the role of a budding chef, Anna, who must compete with other chefs to gain the title of Top Chef. There are two challenges before a contestant is eliminated from the game. The first is a quickfire challenge and the second is the elimination challenge.
In each challenge, the player must prepare a meal based on a theme presented by one of the hosts. The player then goes into the kitchen where different ingredients and flavorings are available. There are several cooking and preparation stations. A timer can be seen on the upper right portion of the window to signify the remaining time before the dishes have to be served to the judges. The judges will then rate the dishes from one to five stars. One of the chefs will be eliminated during the elimination round. More of the game’s features are listed below:
• Variety of meals to prepare

• Comes with power ups to boost dishes
