ChefVille, a game that has players create and run their dream restaurant, is yet another Ville game coming from Zynga, the company said today.

In ChefVille, players will create their own restaurant and build their dream kitchen. The game will have players do everything from design the ideal kitchen to finding ingredients, to gathering friends and sharing recipes. Once the restaurant is up and running, players will have to earn reviews.

The game will feature an eclectic mix of cuisines, each unlocked by building specific cooking stations. So, for instance, if you want to have a restaurant that serves Japanese food, you need a sushi station. You gain access to Chinese recipes by building a Wok Station.

The game's "secret sauce" will be its use of social interaction, Zynga officials said. The game will let you visit friend's restaurants to borrow ingredients and sample dishes.

During the presentation, Zynga showed the gathered press a bustling pizza restaurant, complete with in-game pizza crafting and cute animations.

Once you master levels in the game, Zynga will email you real recipes as a reward.

The ChefVille announcement came during Zynga's annual press conference at their San Francisco headquarters. According to the game's announcement trailer — which is embedded below — it's "coming soon."
