Meal Maker


I dont know what exactly I’m doing wrong, but running it like this:

const menu = {
  _courses: {
    appetizers: [],
    mains: [],
    desserts: [],
    get appetizers() {
      return this._courses.appetizers;
    set appetizers(appetizers) {
      return this._courses.appetizers = appetizers;
    get mains() {
      return this._courses.mains;
    set mains(mains) {
      return this._courses.mains = mains;
    get desserts() {
      return this._courses.desserts;
    set desserts(desserts) {
      return this._courses.desserts = desserts;

  get courses() {
    return {
      appetizers: this.appetizers, 
      mains: this.mains, 
      desserts: this.desserts,
addDishToCourse(courseName,dishName,dishPrice) {
  const dish = {
    name: dishName,
    price: dishPrice,
   return this._cousrses[courseName].push(dish);
getRandomDishFromCourse(courseName) {
  const dishes = this._courses[courseName];
  const randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * dishes.length);
  return dishes[randomIndex];
generateRandomMeal() {
  const appetizers = this.getRandomDishFromCourse('appetizers');
  const mains = this.getRandomDishFromCourse('mains');
  const desserts = this.getRandomDishFromCourse('desserts');
  const totalPrice = appetizer.price + main.price + dessert.price;
  return `Your meal is ${}, ${}, ${} and the total is ${totalPrice}`

menu.addDishToCourse('appetizers', '■■■', 1);

gives me following syntax error:

return this._cousrses[courseName].push(dish);
TypeError: Cannot read property ‘appetizers’ of undefined

I looked at the video provided by codecadamy but it is literally basically the same code so idk
I’d really be so happy about some help

Hello, @m00nl1t, and welcome to the forums.

Look closely at the error message.

If I asked you to find the menu._cousrses object in your code, could you find it? The computer is telling you that it can’t.

Us humans are always going to make mistakes. It’s our nature. The key is to learn to read and follow the error messages, and use a systematic approach to debug our code rather than spending fruitless time proof reading.
