[FIXED] [DO] Top level chefs in restaurant cooking poor quality food

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

So I've been having this problem since Origin did an automatic update yesterday. My 5 star restaurant has two chefs, both at the highest level possible, yet they have started cooking only poor quality food. I don't use any mods or anything of that sort, just the vanilla game. I have tried restarting the game, restarting my computer, repairing the game, but nothing seems to work. 

 

If someone has had the same problem and maybe know how to fix it I would love to know!

  • Top-level restaurant chefs should no longer cook poor quality food.

Thank you, @SimGuruNick!

Is this only happening on existing games or also if you start a new one for testing purposes ?

Currently, for myself it is existing games. All my top rated chefs are creating only 'normal' and 'poor' foods yet some lower level drinks seem to be fine (as far as rating, e.g. will still get an 'excellent' rating for a drink that requires 3/5 or under). Am yet to try to start a whole new game; will probably do that when I pick up City Living EP later this week. Bit annoying though, keep having to give out free meals so my restaurants don't slip in their ratings when sims complain about the food quality! Have set my chefs to cook the most expensive type ingredients, and at carefully (slow) cooking and has not made much difference. Tried praising and scolding, also no difference. My game was all good before the latest patch was downloaded.

For me it varies between Poor and Excellent. Mostly being normal.

I am having the same problem. I even started a new game but it does not make a difference.

But this is not just happening at the restaurant. My own Sims have the same problem with Popcorn, Coffee and tea (I guess Icecream too but I didn't try it). It's never bad quality but always just "normal". Even though all of my sims have the highest cooking level. I am starting to get really pissed.

Me too. It was suggested on officials that firing your chef and hiring anew would eventually address the issue, I did so and noticed when rehiring that my fully skilled chef now had 2 cooking skill.  I am unable to confirm if it works as my new chefs are building up their skills, I will report back the results.
