The golden spoons under the slider represent the attempts you have left. This one decreases by 1 if you make a mistake and also when the needle reaches either side of the slide. Don’t wait too long to add your ingredients!
If you follow the recipe correctly, you will receive the Fragrant Seasoning. You can repeat this process until you have reached 3 successful attempts.

You can make fragrant dishes by using the fragrant spices on a delicious dish. Keep in mind that dishes you’ve converted will expire when the event ends, so make sure you use them before June 7th†
