The Parade Enthusiast says title unlock with a green check on it. I did watch it last year, don't know if its suppose to reset for this year.

Yes, it should have reset for this year. I will inform the developers.

Really confused by the timing of the pristine dishes this year. I have all of the pristine dishes for the first two chefs (meat and vegetable), but NONE of the pristine dishes for the sweets chef. I have turned in enough dishes to complete the event already, but no sweet pristine dishes. Anyone else seeing this? (Erika/Alyniana, please let me know if this should be a bug report instead of a forum question.)

This has been an ongoing complaint for the past few years. Some people never get all of them, and other players don't get them all until they are well over the 3000 dinner servings required to finish the Event. I tried to keep track of when I was getting them, but it seemed to be completely random. (FYI - I had trouble getting pristine dishes from the 1st guy on the left). It would be nice if the devs would modify this, to make it more enjoyable for all players, esp. the newbies.

The Pristine dishes are just randomly occurring. There is still time, so keep turning in the ingredients.

You can 100% the event before receiving all the dishes because all the side quests give you points towards the 100%, but they don't count as cooking meals.

I understand that the pristine dishes are random. Since this is happening to more than just me, it seems there might be a problem with the formula being used to generate the random drops. #justsaying

Can anyone list all the side dish samples for the Thorough Taste Testing achievement? Also (I think I know the answer but am curious anyway,) do we have to consume the samples to get the achievement?

The samples are:
Mashed Potatoes
Cornbread
Stuffing
Cranberry Sauce
Brussel Sprouts
Baked Yams

You don't need to eat them, just win them. :)

@Erika - I have earned all 6 Samples that you listed (some multiple times), and I have not earned my achievement.

@Erika - Yesterday my progress bar for Taste Testing was at 5/6. After I handed in my quest I received the 6th sample but the achievement was not awarded. When I check my event achievement progress, the progress bar for that has now disappeared. I am guessing it is a bug as I know someone else is also missing the progress bar. Hopefully this can get corrected soon :)

it's not related to that , and nobody yet has it complete because it is not complete yet.

@Raymond - Then why has Erika listed the samples you need to win - if there was more to it, she would have written that. I have won them all but not the achievement and my progress bar is no longer showing for that one, therefore I am guessing it is a bug with the quest line

So... On the Taste Testing Quest.... I have done it pretty much every day through out the event. (I think I missed 1 day.) I have only gotten three different quests: Pepercorns, Sheet Pans, and Napkins. I have gotten all of the food to try that is listed in Erika's post above. Before turning things in today, my achievements showed 4 of 6 completed (screeenshot: http://screencast.com/t/vCdkZsu3aj) After turn in, the achievement shows 5 of six. So, I am getting some turn ins counted. But I am supposedly not done yet. I don't understand what determines which dish you get or how you count the turn ins.

I did get 1 pristine dish from the third chef yesterday, but still have 3 more to go. Pretty sure I am not going to finish that one either... even though I have played every day, usually 4 full sets of energy (some days more).

It is frustrating to know that there isn't anything that is controlling whether or not one gets to complete these two quests - especially since both give large energy packs.

I was in the same boat Kathy but I did get one pristine dish last night and one this morning so just one left. Still no luck on the tasting quest though. Hope it works out.

looking at the rankings of the top several people, nobody has that achievement yet.
