Making recipes is a integral part of the games, especially in the third one - Decadence by Design.
Technically, the player can only make his/her own recipes in the third game. In the second game, Secret Ingredients, the player still has to 'discover' recipes, but not to his or her own accord.
Making recipes in the second game happens in tasting laboratory. There is one available for the player in Buenos Aires, but the player needs to the buy it first at a price of $150,000 before he or she can use it.
In the lab, Teddy Baumeister guides the player to the correct combinations of ingredients to the right recipes.
