Spiritfarer – Cooking & Food Giving Guide

Spiritfarer launched suddenly on Nintendo’s Indie World. It’s a gorgeous indie adventure game where you manage a boat of adorable animals. Yes, the boat is on the way to the afterlife and all the animals are technically spirits. But it’s still very cute and so much fun. Now just progressing through the game will direct you to build a few buildings on your boat, one being the kitchen. If you’re having trouble building and are looking for the necessary materials be sure to tab open our other Spiritfarer material list guide here.

A hungry crew is as an angry crew so you’ll be using this room to whip up some tasty meals for everyone on board. Cooking is quite simple. Get inside the kitchen and interact with the oven. You’ll have two choices: ‘Cook’ and ‘Recipes’. As you cook ingredients, you’ll learn new dishes, which will then be recorded in recipes. Simple.

Now, where it gets more complicated is when we’re handling the crew members. Each of them except for Atul have certain tastes. For example, Summer rejects any dish that includes Meat, and Gwen will be happier if you were to give her a Comfort or Fine Dining dish. This Spiritfarer Food Giving Guide will tell you exactly that, breaking down the likes of each of your friends and the spirits you encounter so you can maximize your food usage with your friends.



Favourite Food – Black Coffee (Coffee Beans). Purchase coffee bean seeds and plant them, then cook the beans.


– Comfort Food: Popcorn is the easiest and cheapest.

– Fine Dining: Cook a shrimp to make Shrimp Cocktail.

Dislikes – Anything with shellfish (mollusks not shrimp), Fruit


Favourite Food – Pork Chops (Pork). You’ll learn this recipe as part of a quest, but you can’t finish it until you get to Furogawa and purchase Pork from the shop there.

Likes – Everything

Dislikes – Nothing. Feed him whatever you’ve got on hand, and he’ll be happy.


Favourite Food – Grain Salad (Grain And Veggie Or Mushroom)


– Desserts: Poached Fruit is the easiest since you can just cook berries to obtain it.

– Salads: Egg and vegetable make Egg Salad, while Mushroom and Veggie make Mushroom Salad.

Dislikes – Anything with meat or animal products. She a vegan.


Favourite Food – Noodle Soup (Rice Flour). Just cook rice flour. You won’t get this for a while, since it requires the Windmill.

Likes – Plain Food, Soups. Grilled Fish and Plain Rice are the easiest, with ingredients in abundance.

Dislikes – Sugary Food, Fine Dining Food


Favourite Food – Veggie-pot pie (Flour + Veggie/Mushroom). You won’t get this for a while, since it requires the Windmill.


– Old-Fashioned Food: Shellfish Stew is the easiest; just cook one of the shellfish you can find on the side of the ship.

– Desserts: Like with Summer, Poached Fruit is the easiest and earliest dessert you can offer Alice.

Dislikes – Acquired Taste, Stimulants, Exotic


Favourite Food – French Fries (Potato And Fat). You won’t get either of these for a while, so stick to liked foods until you’ve got the Crusher to make fat.


– Breakfast Food: Egg Sunny Side Up (just cook an egg) or Cereal Bowl (grain + dairy) fit the bill here.

– Desserts: Poached Fruit (just cook a piece of fruit or a berry) is the easiest

Dislikes – Veggies, Stimulants, Uncooked Fruit


Favourite Food – Beef Fondue (Beef And Fat). You’ll find Beef available for purchase later on in the game, so depending on how you progress, you’ll want to focus on likes for Giovanni too.


– Fine Dining: You’ll have access to more choices by the time you find Giovanni, so things like Squid Skewer (cook a Squid) and Bouillabaisse (Fish + Vegetable or Mushroom) are options.

– Stimulants — Tea and Coffee.

Dislikes – Anything with eggs, Carbs


Favourite Food – Surströmming: catch a herring, and put it in the Cellar. The Cellar is part of the final ship features upgrade, so it’s out of reach for a little while.


– Exotic Food: Plenty to choose from here, but Fish Curry (Fish + Rice or other Grain) and Paella (Shellfish + Rice or other Grain) are the easiest by far.

– Acquired Taste: Steamed Shellfish can be your go-to food here. Just cook one of the hangers-on you find on the side of the ship.

Dislikes – Anything fried, Sugary food, Fruit

Bruce & Mickey

Favourite Food – Garlic Bread (Wheat Flour And Garlic). You may get lucky and find Garlic in a crate, but you can buy it from a shop later after you clear the mist barrier.

Likes – Pub food. Anything fried.

Dislikes – One ingredient food, Allergic to crustacean


Favourite Food – Tomato Pizza (Wheat Flour And Tomato)


– Comfort food: Popcorn works here if you want to make things simple.

– Old-fashioned food: Shellfish Stew is the easiest; just cook one of the shellfish you can find on the side of the ship.

Dislikes – Lactose intolerant (Dairy), Fruit


Favourite Food – Green Salad (Leaf Veggie/Lettuce And Fat). Getting these won’t be any problem by the time Elena joins your party.

Likes – Plain food, Healthy food

Dislikes – Fine-dining food, Meat, Fried food
