I've never had this happen before, I didn't think it was something the game would actually do. But today I got assigned a daily goal to "cook and serve shrimp and chive dumpling six times in Dim Sum Citadel."
I've only barely finished the first season of Dim Sum Citadel, and from what I can figure looking online I won't unlock that recipe until way later in the restaurant (season four maybe?) so with the supplies I get today there's no way for me to get that far, that fast, and even unlock the recipe.
This seems like a really screwed up way to do the daily goals. I've never had one that was a recipe I hadn't even unlocked before. I sincerely hope this is a glitch and not just the way this works now...
