Cooking

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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 player's inventory. Only ingredients in the player's inventory or refrigerator are seen as usable items for a recipe.

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 player's inventory or the refrigerator (or a combination of the two) the recipe icon will become fully highlighted.

Stat Bonuses

Eating a food with stat changes will wipe out any active stats and replace them with just the stats from the newly eaten food.

Duration of the stat bonuses for food appears to lower as the day progresses. For example, if Fish Stew is eaten early in the day its duration is 16+ minutes. If eaten at 10pm it only lasts 2-3 minutes. This may have been done so that high quality food such as Fish Stew which gives +3 Fishing will last the rest of the day - if the game is played at original speed. If mods are used that extend the day, foods become less valuable later in the day.

Profitable Recipes

While most recipes will sell for less than the cost or profit from their ingredients, there are a few that will always result in profit when using the lowest quality ingredients.

Note: It may be more profitable to save Fish for "Help Wanted" quests, which generally pay triple the fish's base value, than to turn them into Sashimi.

The following recipes will result in profit when using the lowest-quality ingredients:

However if profit is your goal, then you are always better off processing ingredients, i.e. in a Preserves Jar, Keg, Mayonnaise Machine, or Cheese Press. The only noteworthy exceptions are Algae Soup (+40g) and Pale Broth (+100g), and also Sashimi for low tier fish, since cooking is the only way to process algae and fish. Aside from these three recipes cooking for profit only becomes attractive if your ingredient production greatly exceeds your processing capacity.

Notes

  • One can store cooking ingredients in the refrigerator, making them accessible for cooking without occupying space in the player's inventory.
  • Preparing a recipe that requires an unspecific item (e.g. Maki Roll, requiring any fish) can use up an ingredient that is specifically required for another recipe (e.g. Trout Soup, requiring Rainbow Trout). This can sometimes be prevented simply by cooking the Trout Soup before the Maki Roll, using up the trout before the Maki Roll recipe can see it. However, every recipe searches for ingredients first in the player's inventory, in order, last slot to first, and then in the refrigerator, last slot to first. Place your generic fish items in the last slots of your inventory and your specific items in places searched later. Then the recipes you cook will use those items instead of any alternatives.
