The first half of the Chef Academy 4 town. It has buildings made of books and food. There is a winding road with levels that the player must complete.

Chef Academy 4 is yet another Chef Academy town. By the time the player reaches this point, they have completed Chef Academy, Chef Academy 2, Chef Academy 3, and several other towns.

The interesting (and very annoying) thing about Chef Academy 4 is that Candace has decided to become a customer of Pepper’s food truck. The other customers don’t like Candace!

Not only does Candice have a bad attitude, she has also insulted Pepper (and the Goddess of Love). In addition, Candace is covered in a bright green, chemical, slime. Her presence at Pepper’s Food Truck makes the rest of the customers angry. The player has to move quicker than usual to serve food before the customers leave.

Basil Graham (food critic) asks Candice if her Capers Cuisine is closed.

Basil Graham: I hear that Capers Cuisine is closed for the semester. Are you taking a hiatus? What brings you back to the Chef Academy?

Basil Graham is a food critic. He comes to food trucks to eat the food, and then writes about his opinions.

Candace unintentionally says she has a lab - before restating that as kitchen. She has a green glow around her, is wearing a lab coat, and has vials on her belt that glow the same color as she does.

Candace: I need to figure out how Pepper creates her flavors. I want to improve them in my lab – I mean, in my kitchen.

Basil Graham tells Candace she will find it difficult to improve upon Pepper's cooking.

Basil Graham: Intriguing. You may find it difficult to improve upon Pepper’s cooking. Her dishes are always exquisite.

What follows is a tutorial given to Pepper by Chef Crisp. It takes place inside Pepper’s food truck.

Chef Crisp's head is floating in a circle. She tells Pepper that Candace will be her first customer.

Chef Crisp: Interesting. Candace is your first customer!

Candace appears, with an angry look on her face. She wants strawberry waffles. Chef Crisp tells Pepper that Candace is unpleasant to be around.

Chef Crisp: She’s unpleasant for your other customers to be near. Maybe it’s all of those chemicals…

Another customer appears. Chef Crisp tells Pepper that Candace reduced the patience of the other customers.

Chef Crisp: Candace reduces the patience of your other customers while she’s around.

Candace has five red hearts next to the picture of strawberry waffles that is above her head. The second customer, one the game named “Mother and Baby”, wants banana pancakes. Her hearts are all a dark green color. This shows how little patience this customer has while Candace is at the food truck.

Chef Crisp suggests that Pepper serve Candace first so the other customer's patience will return.

Chef Crisp: Once you serve Candace, the patience of your other customers will return to normal.

New recipes for Level 365 are:

This level was a bit more difficult than the previous ones. The player must serve at least three Chocolate Crepes to customers. The game doesn’t always give the player enough customers who want that food.

Basil Graham asks Candace what her favorite dish from Pepper's food truck is?

Basil Graham: I want to mention you eating at Pepper’s truck in my upcoming column. What’s your favorite dish?

Candace tells Basil Graham that those farm fresh strawberries are great! And then she changes her answer to, "I mean they're okay. I guess."

Candace: Well, I wouldn’t say that I actually like Pepper’s food… although those farm fresh strawberries are great! I mean, they’re okay. I guess.

New recipe for Level 368 is:

The Chocolate Banana Pancake looks like a crepe. There is an entire banana  (missing its wrapper) rolled inside a pancake. Chocolate drizzles covers the top of the pancake. It sits on a purple plate.

Mechanic: Nah, Pepper is a great instructor! She’s taught me how to eat healthier without sacrificing flavor.

Candace asks the Mechanic to tell her what Pepper's secret is.

Candace: What is Pepper’s secret? What flavoring does she add?

The Mechanic tells Candace that Pepper taught him to use spices.

Mechanic: Flavoring? You mean like spices? Pepper taught me how to make the dishes just like she does at the truck.

Candace tells the Mechanic that he is no help at all.

Candace: Ugh, you’re no help at all. There must be something I’m not seeing…

I got three stars on Level 372!

This level was tricky! The player needed to be fast and serve customers before two of them left. I had some of my appliances at the gold level – but not all of them. As such, some of the appliances were not fast enough to keep up with the grouchy customers.

I got two stars on Level 375!

This level was difficult because it required players to serve at least 5 servings of Cookie Dough Ice Cream to customers. The game did not consistently give the player enough customers to meet that goal. I ended up doing this level multiple times before I was able to complete it – with 8 servings of Cookie Dough Ice Cream.

At the top of the screenshot, it shows that I was able to serve 7 Coconut Ice Creams to customers. The level only required that I serve 5 of them.

The Reporter asks Candace why she keeps visiting Pepper's food truck even though she doesn't like the food.

Reporter: You claim not to like Pepper’s food, yet you’re still visiting her food truck often. Would you care to comment?

Candace answers the reporter saying there's something about those strawberries.

Candace: There’s just something about those strawberries… I have to learn the secret!

Reporter tells Candace that her frequenting Pepper's food truck is a headline.

Reporter: I’m not sure what you expect to uncover, aside from the quality of her produce. But you frequenting her food truck, now that’s a headline!

Candace tells the Reporter that she can't write about this.

Candace: You can’t write about this! I have a reputation to keep.

A screenshot shows a sign that says Chef Academy 4. There is a winding road that has several levels that the player must complete.

I got two stars in Level 377.

This level required players to serve at least 3 Malt Milkshakes to customers. The game doesn’t always give players enough customers who want a Malt Milkshake, which makes it more difficult to complete the task. I ended up serving 4 Malt Milkshakes.

New recipe for Level 378 was:

A Chocolate bar has been broken into squares of different sizes. The pieces are stacked on top of each other.

Chocolate

Pepper holds up one spoon and holds a pink dishcloth in her other hand. The box next to her shows two gold stars and one empty star.

The Reporter asks Candace for a comment about her visits to Pepper's food truck.

Reporter: Still no comment yet about your visits to Pepper’s food truck? I’d love to get a quote for my article.

Candace tells the Reporter that she is a misunderstood chef.

Candace: Not unless you’re writing about a misunderstood chef uncovering the lies behind this crummy food truck.

Oh, no! Candace has gone full conspiracy theorist! Candace believes that she is the one who is the “good guy” in this situation. She believes she is uncovering the “lies” behind Pepper’s food truck (which Candace claims is “crummy”).

The Reporter tells Candace "that's definitely not what my article is about".

Reporter: That’s definitely not what my article is about. Have you uncovered any lies?

Candace tells the Reporter that she hasn't uncovered any lies.

Candace: Not yet, but I will! I’m certain of it!

The response from Candace sounds similar to what happens when a reasonable person questions a conspiracy theorist. The conspiracy theorists rarely ever have even a shred of proof of their claims. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop them from believing in their own – self created – fairy tale.

That said, Candace’s bad attitude, and her recent jump into conspiracy theories, could be part of the reason why the other customers at Pepper’s food truck get uncomfortable when Candace arrives.

Pepper holds up two spoons and looks happy. She holds a pink dishcloth in her other hand. The box next to her shows three gold stars.

I got three stars on Level 382!

The Reporter tells Candace that she figured out that the farm fresh strawberries are what made Candace change her mind about Pepper's cooking.

Reporter: My article is almost done. I’ve figured it out! It was the farm fresh strawberries that finally changed your mind about Pepper’s cooking!

Candace decides to get out of here before the Reporter's story breaks.

Candace: What?! No! That’s horrible! I’m going to be ruined… I have to get out of her before your story breaks.

Will this be the last time the player encounters Candace? One can only hope. Every time Candace arrives at Pepper’s food truck, it makes the other customers very uncomfortable – causing some to leave before they get their order.

Pepper tells Chef Crisp that she saw Candace leave in a huff.

Pepper: I just saw Candace leave in a huff. I wonder what that was all about.

Chef Crisp tells Pepper that the truth upset Candace.

Chef Crisp: The reporter just published an article about her new love for your cooking. I guess hearing the truth upset her!

Pepper tells Chef Crisp that it was nice having Candace as a patron. Then explains that "nice" is an overstatement.

Pepper: That’s too bad, it was nice having her as a patron at the food truck! We’ll, maybe “nice” is an overstatement, but you know what I mean.

The Reporter tells Pepper that Candace wasn't the most pleasant person to wait in line with.

Reporter: I’m sorry Candace was so upset by my article. Although, she wasn’t the most pleasant person to wait in line with.

The Reporter asks Pepper for a sneak peek about where she will be heading to next.

Reporter: Do you have any sneak peeks you’d like to share with me about where you’ll be headed to next?

Pepper tells the Reporter that she has a song stuck in her head about Les Poissons.

Pepper: I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day. Something about Les Poissons… and how I love Les Poissons! It makes me want a baguette.

The second half of Chef Academy 4 is complete
