Today's guide was written with the help of Krystle W. and Christine A. Thanks!

So you’ve taken advantage of the VIP Dinners and you’re richer than rich. You’ve finished all your Super Stoves, and bought everything under the sun. And now you’re bored. Bored, bored, bored. Well, there’s always that new dish mastery thing that Zynga just put it – but that’s a whole different beast that I’m not going to talk about today. Today, I’m talking about Pro Cooking. [fb-share]

I’ve also heard it called “Sports Cooking”, “Delete Cooking”, and “Powerlevelling”. Whatever you call it, the basic idea is really simple: You prepare an item on the stove, collect its preparation CP, and then delete it before it finishes. You can only do this with dishes that take OVER 30 minutes to prepare. Meaning you CANNOT do it with a Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail (30 minute cook time) but you CAN do it for Buttermilk Pancakes (45 minute cook time).

Where to find a dish's Pro Points

The hardest part is figuring out what dish to cook over and over. It’s up to you, and is dependent on whether money is a factor for you or not. If you don’t care about coin, just choose a recipe that gives a high amount of Cafe Points for cooking. You can see how much a dish gives on the Mastery screen, or review the chart below.

The bad side of this technique is that you’re wasting money because you never serve the dishes. Also, you never get Mastery credit for the dish by doing it this way. So why would you do it at all? If you’ve got money burning a whole in your pocket, and you’ve got a super stove (or a normal stove) that’s not in use, you can keep making CP on it while the rest of your dishes are cooking. If you’re close to your next level just need a little CP now now now.. you may also want to try this technique.

It doesn’t really matter whether you use a normal stove or a super stove. You get the same amount of CP either way – but the super stove makes it much easier.

Reading this chart:
1) If you don’t care about money, pay attention to the “Pro CP” column. This tells you how much CP you’ll get for each time you prepare and delete an item. The higher, the better. Examples of high Pro CP items would be Impossible Quiche (75), Ice Cream Sundae (84), Chicken Pot Pie (66), and Chinese Candy Box (99).
2) If you DO care about money, pay attention to the “cost per CP” column. This tells you how much 1 CP will cost you, in coins. The LOWER, the better. Examples of good items from this category would be Caramel Apples (7.5), Rackasaurus Ribs (11.8) and Delicious Chocolate Cake (18.1)

I like to keep a happy medium – so for me it’s Delicious Chocolate Cake, at 11.8 coin per CP, and 72 CP per item. [fb-share]

    I really love dis game. Plz add me I play everyday for about 6 to 8 hours sometimes more. I answer all requests. I have a couple request (changes) I want 2 suggest. 1. Slow down on adding new quest its beginning to be over bearing causing ppl 2 stop playing da game. 2. When using da bonus checker for cafe world, it takes a lot of time to claim rewards. Plz change it back. It would help players out alot and keep dem playing da game.

  5. This works even better with the new 4x super stove! I can level up in about an hour with Rackasaurus ribs. 204 CP per cycle. If you have tons of coin to waste, use candy box at a whopping 396/cycle
