Stardew Valley, a roleplay game so cozy that it has its in-game cooking show. Cooking is a core aspect of the dark medieval 2D game, and cooked meals can revitalize a player’s health and energy like no raw food can. Since the game is meant to simulate a real farming experience, cooking recipes with real farmed ingredients makes sense and adds a realistic touch to the game.
Stardew Valley has a total of 74 kitchen recipes, with meals ranging from Blueberry Tart to Tom Kha Soup. The recipes have become so popular that people in the Stardew Valley community have begun trying out these meals in real life. But there’s more to farming and putting together a recipe when it comes to cooking in the game. Here’s everything you need to know on how to cook in Stardew Valley and become a Gourmet Chef!
Achievements for Cooking in Stardew Valley
All that hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. The more you cook in Stardew Valley, the more you climb the skill ladder.

This shows you all of the recipes that you know and the ones that are in full colour are the ones you are able to cook. Simply select the one you want to cook and you will cook it. The finished dish will end up in your inventory for you to either eat, give to another villager, or put on your kitchen table.
When you know the recipe you want to cook you need to collect your ingredients. This is where being a farmer comes in useful as you can grow almost all of the ingredients for the recipes. However, you may need to buy certain supplies that you havent managed to grow yet from Pierre (or JojaMart as a last resort).

Once you learn a recipe once, you will remember it forever and it will be accessible from your Stove.
You need to know a recipe to be able to cook it. There are multiple ways you can learn recipes:
These tables assume crafted dishes will be used to make other crafted dishes. For example, 1 Potato would be used to make Hashbrowns, then those Hashbrowns would be used to make Complete Breakfast. 1 more Potato would be needed to make Hashbrowns for Dish O The Sea. When finished, the Gourmet Chef achievement would be earned for cooking every dish, but there would be no Hashbrowns because they were used to make the other dishes.
The player must learn each recipe before it is unlocked for cooking. Locked recipes are displayed as a black silhouette of the recipe icon, with a tooltip description that says “???.” Unlocked recipe icons will appear greyed-out if any of the ingredients are missing, but the tooltip will provide information regarding the recipe. Any missing ingredients will be highlighted in red. If all the ingredients required for a recipe are present either in the players inventory or the refrigerator (or a combination of the two) the recipe icon will become fully highlighted.
100,000g worth of freshly cooked items are requested in the Qis Cuisine quest. During this quest, cooking will create dishes with the word “Fresh” at the beginning of their names (i.e., Fresh Fried Egg, Fresh Omelet, etc.), which cannot stack with food items cooked before the start of the quest.
Cooking is a game mechanic that becomes available after upgrading the farmhouse for the first time. The house upgrade adds a kitchen, which includes a stove and a refrigerator. The stove is the cooking interface, while the refrigerator provides 36 slots of storage space, similar to a chest. The refrigerator is unique in that it is directly linked with the cooking interface, as if it were an extension of the players inventory. Only ingredients in the players inventory, refrigerator or Mini-Fridge are seen as usable items for a recipe.
Only one food’s buffs can be active at a time, so eating a food with buffs will wipe out any active food buffs and replace them with the buffs from the newly eaten food. If a newly eaten food has no buffs, any existing buffs will remain in effect. Drink buffs are handled separately, so buffs from one drink (Triple Shot Espresso, Coffee, Green Tea or Ginger Ale) can be stacked with one food’s buffs.
