Cooking up a feast is number 7 in the perplexing puzzle series from Ravensburger, this 1,000 piece puzzle is suitable for ages 10+RRP £11.99.
This is the first time I have tried one of the Perplexing puzzles, and cooking up a feast was a fun puzzle that brought back memories of my Nan’s kitchen. I particularly liked the rabbit jelly mould as this was part of my childhood, along with the bone handled butter knives. Cooking up a feast is a photographic puzzle, and at first glance didn’t look as if it was going to be particularly difficult as there is plenty of colour in the picture.
I started with edges and the bright pink, orange of the rabbit jelly mould, next the red of the strawberries, jam and tea-pot. After this the puzzle was a little more difficult but certainly not impossible. There were enough little details in the cooking up a feast puzzle to keep my interest and it took about 4 hours to complete the puzzle. I loved all the vintage packaging and can imagine my Nan’s cupboards having things like these in them, I certainly remember the hand turned mincer!
I didn’t find cooking up a feast was more of a challenge than some of the Colin Thompson puzzles that I have previously completed, but it was certainly still fun. The quality of a Ravensburger puzzle is faultless, and the pieces always sit well together.
