Disney Dreamlight Valley Recipe Guide: How to Cook All Meals

Disney Dreamlight Valley tips

Cooking meals plays a big part in Disney Dreamlight Valley, but working out every recipe can be a bit of a slog.

Sometimes you’ll be given a recipe, but other times it’s up to you to work out what’s in a dish. And with so many different ingredients available in the game, figuring it out can be difficult. Hopefully we can help. Here we’ve rounded up a list of every recipe in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Note: This list is currently expanding. we’ll update regularly as we discover more recipes ourselves.

First, let’s start with the basics.

How to cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Cooking in Disney Dreamlight Valley is very simple. Head to a cooker or stove, and interact with it. You’ll find one in your own house, in Remy’s restaurant, or in several other residents’ houses. You can cook on any, but we recommend cooking in Remy’s restaurant. There, he’ll accompany you, and by paying attention to his expressions, you’ll know if you’re making a good dish or not.

To cook a recipe, you’ll need one piece of coal ore. Thankfully, this is very easy to get, and you’ll acquire lots of it naturally by playing. It’s most commonly found in rocks and mining spots across the valley.

If you already know a recipe, you can press triangle (or Y on an Xbox controller) to bring up your list of recipes. Select what you want to make. Then, by pressing touchpad on a PlayStation controller (or select on Xbox) you can autofill. Be careful with this, though. Sometimes, multiple items can be substituted in a recipe. And autofill might not always choose the most common/abundant item.

That’s it: once your pot is full with the right ingredients, just hit ‘Start Cooking’.

If you don’t want to follow a recipe or want to experiment, you can do. Throw ingredients in together, and you never know what you might discover.

Food groups

Not every ingredient in a recipe in Disney Dreamlight Valley calls for a specific ingredient. Some will simply specify a vegetable, or a fish. If the icon in the recipe is white, that means you can substitute it with any item from the group.

However, there are exceptions. Both Crudités and Grilled Vegetables are made with just one vegetable, for example. And the game does not specify which items will get you which recipe. Where possible, we’ve specified a particular item, or the items we’ve used to create the recipe at hand to make it easier to ensure you get the recipe you need.
