Disney Dreamlight Valley is a life simulation game that lets you visit a virtual world filled with some of your favorite Disney characters. The game allows you to have your own house and participate in various activities around the valley, even accompanied by certain characters.
Cooking is one of those activities that you will participate in a lot. In Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll need to cook various meals multiple times during quests, and even more so if you like experimenting with food or want to sell some to Goofy to earn some quick cash.
In this guide, I’ll walk you through the steps to mastering the kitchen and what are the best ways to prepare some of the top-rated meals. Disney Dreamlight Valley rewards you greatly for cooking great meals, so it’s a great skill to master. Keep reading to learn more.
How to Cook at Disney Dreamlight Valley
To start cooking, you’ll need a Stove, and the fastest way to get one is to simply progress through the initial Mickey quests. During the quest known as Foodception, Mickey will lend you a spare stove he has (why do you have a spare stove, Mickey?) so you can cook him some meals.
If you don’t find Mickey’s stove appealing, you can buy a fancier one from Scrooge or make one yourself on a DIY table. Either way, once you’ve acquired a stove in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’re halfway on your way to becoming a top chef.
The other thing you’ll need to cook the meals are the ingredients you can find in the valley, grow from seeds, and catch by fishing. In addition to ingredients, you will need coal to fuel the fire on the stove, while a coal ore is used to cook each recipe. You can find coal by mining mineral ore veins around the valley.
Once you have met the above requirements, you can start experimenting with cooking by mixing different ingredients together. However, without certain recipes, you’ll likely end up with fairly simple meals at first.
If you received a cooker from Mickey, there’s a good chance you’ve already picked up Remy the Rat’s recipe near his restaurant. You can find other such recipes hidden around the world and earn others by completing various quests for other characters.
Finally, if you want to step up your cooking game in Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll want to unlock Remy as a character. To do this, you will need to progress quite far in the story and have unlocked the Dream Castle. Inside you will find a door leading to the Kingdom of Ratatouille, which you can unlock using 3000 Dreamlight.
Learn from the best
You’ll need to do a mini-quest in the Kingdom of Ratatouille to unlock Remy as a Disney Dreamlight Valley character. This will include preparing several meals, the recipes of which you will learn along the way. You will also be able to prepare the real Ratatouille dish, one of the highest rated dishes in the game.
Once you’ve brought Remy back to the valley, be sure to renovate his restaurant with Scrooge’s help, and you’ll unlock new dairy ingredients that aren’t available anywhere else in the game. Mixing ingredients with Remy is also a great way to know which ones go well together or when the dish will fail, based on their reaction.
About the meals
At this point, you’ll have almost everything you need to prepare a variety of meals in Disney Dreamlight Valley. You may have noticed that I was talking about meals noted above. That’s because they’re classified into five categories, from 1-star meals to 5-star meals, based on their overall quality.
You will often need to prepare 5-star meals for certain quests and present them to the inhabitants of the valley to progress friendships. The higher a meal’s rating, the more it’s worth in Goofy’s stall, so you can earn money by selling the food you’ve prepared.
Eating well-cooked meals yourself also adds to your energy and can give you extra energy on top of your regular store. This is indicated by a gold bar above the usual blue bar, meaning you can do more work in the valley before you tire.
If you’ve been following this far, you’ve probably figured out how to cook great food in Dinsey Dreamlight Valley. However, the road to becoming a great chef has only just begun. Players can find more ingredients in all the different biomes by completing certain quests.
You can refer to this guide to learn more about all the recipes in the game, or you can experiment with Remy in his kitchen to unravel the secrets yourself. You can also check out this walkthrough for a Remy quest, where you can unlock the ingredients to make desserts.
Cooking in Dreamlight Valley is much the same as in real life. All you need is a basic understanding of the mechanics, and the rest is up to you to figure out. Learning from experience and even from mistakes can be very instructive.
