Welcome to our Stardew Valley cooking and recipes guide.

You can start cooking in Stardew Valley after the first upgrade of your farmhouse. Go to Robin to purchase an upgrade. The upgrade will include a stove and a refrigerator, which will allow you to cook. Store the items that you want to cook in the refrigerator (which has 36 slots). Only ingredients in the refrigerator or in your inventory are usable items for a recipe. We recommend placing a few chests in your kitchen to store other cooking ingredients and to store cooked dishes.

In order to cook a recipe, you must have learned that recipe. You can learn new cooking recipes in Stardew Valley by watching the cooking show, "Queen of Sauce," on TV on Wednesday and Sundays (you need to purchase a TV) or by befriending villagers, who will send you recipes through the mailbox after you have reached a certain friendship level. Gus at the Saloon also has a few recipes.

What's worth cooking in Stardew Valley?
Sashimi for any fish that sells for less than 75g is worth cooking. Sashimi is also generally liked by many villagers as a gift. If you fish a lot or have crab pots, you will have lots of fish. Explore more by going to our "Sashimi" section to learn which fish is worthwhile converting to sashimi by fishing skill level.

Other recipes that are worth cooking include Spicy Eel and Crab Cakes, which are excellent for mining trips, foods that boost fishing skill, and foods that boost foraging skills. Check out our category "Stat Bonuses" to filter recipes by the stat bonus you are interested in.
