How to make Fancy Food


I researched a Processing Plant to make Fancy Food, and a type of Processed Item that uses Fancy Food (Chocolate Cakes) but I can't set the Processing Plant to actually make the Chocolate Cakes.

What am I missing? How do I make Fancy Food?

According to the comments and the production chain as laid out in this french wiki post, you're on the right track.

You need 3 different things to produce something in this game:

  1. Materials
  2. Something able to produce something with those materials
  3. Somewhere to use/sell what you produce

In your case, you've probably got 1. Food which is the material that the processing plant needs to make the fancy food. and 2. A processing plant requiring processing level 1 or above to make fancy food. What you're missing is something to do with the fancy food as fancy food is yet another material and not a finished product.

So you want to have chocolate cake be the thing to use your fancy food, then you need something to produce chocolate cake, which as per the comments/french wiki page is a factory and Food Level 3. Chocolate cake is a finished product and will go to your exporter for sale.
