How to Unlock Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking

There are three ways to unlock Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking:

  1. Repair Scrooge McDuck's Shop and purchase a Stove from his store or catalog.
  2. Complete the Foodception Quest from Mickey Mouse and get a Stove for free.
  3. Craft a Stove.

In either case, you'll get a Stove which can be placed in your House and used for Cooking.

 
 

Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Guide - How to Cook

How to Cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Here's how to cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley:

 
 
  1. Gather, Farm, or purchase ingredients. You'll also need a piece of Coal.
  2. Interact with a Stove.
  3. Select a Recipe from the top-left menu (if desired).
  4. Drag ingredients off of the left-hand menu one at a time and drop them into the pot.
  5. Click Start Cooking to make the Food.

The Food will be automatically placed in your inventory. You can then choose to Cook another Recipe or stop Cooking. If your inventory is full, you will have to drop an item on the floor before you can Cook.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Guide - How Recipes Work Explanation

How Recipes Work

Each Recipe has four key pieces of information as shown in the above image:

  1. Picture of the Recipe
  2. Star Rating - a rating of 1-5 Stars, with more Stars being better.
  3. "Any Ingredient" Slot - Ingredients are split into nine categories: Vegetables, Fruit, Grain, Dairy & Oil, Fish, Seafood, Spices, Sweets, and Ice. When an ingredient category icon is presented like this, any ingredient from that category will work. For example, you could make the above meal with Carrot, Lettuce, Bell Pepper, or any other Vegetable and it would count.
  4. Specific Ingredient Slots - These ingredients are absolutely necessary and cannot be substituted.

How to Unlock More Cooking Recipes

You can unlock more Cooking Recipes in three ways:

 
 
  1. Digging them up from the ground or finding them hidden in furniture.
  2. Experimenting with Cooking until you unlock a new Recipe
    • Note: Cooking any of the recipes we've listed at the bottom of our Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Guide once will permanently unlock them and add them to your in-game list -- simply go through our list and get to Cooking!
  3. Getting them as a Quest Reward.

All Recipes are listed as "Meals" under the Collection menu, but the Ingredients are secret until you discover the correct combination. If you mix together random ingredients and stumble upon a Recipe, it will be added to this list.

Where to Get Ingredients

There are several ways to get Ingredients:

  1. Farm Crops or purchase them from Goofy's Stalls
  2. Purchase Ingredients from Remy after fixing Chez Remy
  3. Forage for wild Ingredients in each Zone on the Map

Hovering over each Ingredient in the Collection menu will tell you where they can be found.

How Recipe Star Ratings Work

The Star Rating of Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes is based on a simple formula -- each required ingredient will give a star to that recipe. For example, Tamagoyaki requires Egg and Sugarcane and is therefore a 2-star meal.

 
 

Mind, adding in optional ingredients do not increase the Star Rating of a recipe. Fruit Salad, for example, will always be a 1-star meal because it only requires one ingredient.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Guide - Best Food to Cook Chez Remy Unfinished Building

Best Disney Dreamlight Valley Food to Cook

The best Disney Dreamlight Valley Food to Cook is Smoked Peanuts and Anglerfish -- it restores a whopping 3,960 Energy and sells for 2,200 Star Coins. It also has room for 3 more Ingredients, allowing you to drive the sale price and Energy restoration up even higher.

That said, it's not easy to catch an Anglerfish and you likely won't have a steady supply; you'll also need to complete Quests for Remy in order to unlock access to Peanuts. I instead recommend an alternative: Berry Salad.

The combination of Blueberry, Raspberry, Gooseberry, Gooseberry, and Gooseberry makes a fine Berry Salad - By mid-to-late game, you'll have access to all three Berry Bushes. This version of Berry Salad restores 3,410 Energy and sells for 329 Star Coins. You won't get rich off of it, but it will be able to restore most (if not all) of your Energy Bar (and perhaps give you some extra Energy, too). Berries grow quickly enough that you'll soon find yourself tripping over them.

As an alternative, I recommend 5 Cocoa Bean Candy. (It's exactly what it says on the tin: 5 Cocoa Beans!) This only provides 2,570 Energy and sells for 197 Star Coins, but you can get access to Cocoa Beans much earlier in the game than Gooseberries.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Recipes List

This is a list of all Disney Dreamlight Valley Cooking Recipes that we've found so far. Here are some notes to keep in mind:

  • Blank spaces in an ingredient field means that any extra ingredient can be added. Additional ingredients will increase the Energy Restored and Sell Price of a Meal.
    • Keep in mind that adding extra ingredients could result in a different recipe if you match that recipe. For example, you can put in 1 Apple and get a Fruit Salad. Add in Wheat and Butter, however, and the Apple Pie recipe will take its place.
  • Any spaces with "?" represent information we do not yet have.
  • "Any X" spaces (e.g. "Any Fruit," "Any Seafood," etc.) can be filled by any Ingredient of that class as detailed in the Ingredient List above.
