In this fun food-themed game, each player picks a chef board with a different recipe - from lasagne to cupcakes - and matches the ingredient cards to their board. They must then spin the spinner to get their plate and wait for their meal to cook! Who will be the first to serve up a tasty treat?
The game can be used to get children interested in cooking by talking about the different ingredients and utensils, as well as foods from around the world. The addition of the spinner turns Crazy Chefs into a game of chance to see who will cook their meal first!
5 chef boards

My daughter got this as a present for her 4th Birthday and we must have played it 100 times since. It is a simple concept and works just as well for 2 players as for more. She loves it (well, as long as she wins...)
My kids are 2 and 4 and they are always excited to play with us. We all played so many times! It is of course a great anniversary child gift.
A great memory game. Each player chooses a recipe they want to make and then they have to find their ingredients. Once you have all your ingredients, you use the spinner to see if you can make your dish and then serve your dish. Loved the different types of dishes such as chinese, italian and good old sheperds' pie!
Excellent 'bingo' style game with a difference. Each player can have one of 5 different boards. Each board features a cook preparing a different meal: Pink (girl) cakes; blue (girl) shepherd's pie; red (boy) noodles; green (boy) pizza; yellow (boy) kebabs.
There are different tiles to collect to fill your board up - not only the food ingredients, but things you would need to make it (e.g potato peeler). Take it in turns to choose a tile, if it's yours, put on one of your 7 spaces. If it's someone else's, put it back (they have to watch where it goes!)
Unlike most bingo games though, the winner isn't the first person to fill their board. Once you have all your tiles, spin the spinner. First you need the arrow to land on a plate, then on your next turn you need the arrow to land on a boy or girl ready to eat. There are plate and meal tiles provided - my children refuse to stop playing until every chef has made their dish. The addition of the spinner at the end adds a random element to the game that my girls love - especially as Daddy is notoriously bad at having the arrow land where he wants it to!
My older kids (2 1/2 & almost 5) absolutely love this game, it takes just the right amount of time and they don't lose interest. It combines memory skills and luck, which makes it really fun because even those who aren't quite so good at remembering yet have a chance to win. You have to collect ingredients to cook a meal and the first person to do so wins. Lots of fun & definitely educational!
My 3-year-old daughter loves this game. It is helping to develop her memory & she is learning all about the different ingredients & equipment needed to make different meals. Would definitely recommend to others.
All the chefs have been given names now that we've played it so much. We've had it since our eldest was 3 and he's now 6 and still enjoys playing it with his younger brother and parents! A simple game with simple instructions and the wonderful "spinny thing" that kids love!
Great fun memory game. Loved by both my daughters - although there's a regular dispute over who gets the fairy cake card!! Highly recommended.
Another great Orchard game which boosts memory and encourages my children to discuss food and what is needed when making dinner in terms of ingredients and utensils.
