HOW TO COOK IN Coral Island
How To GET A KITCHEN
It should come as no surprise that to start cooking in Coral Island, you’re going to need a kitchen. To do this start by going to the carpenters Joko and Dinda and upgrade your Farmhouse
Farmhouse Upgrade Requirements: 100x Wood, 50x Stone, 5x Bronze Bar, 5x Silver Bar and 5,000 Coins
It should take about 3 in-game days for the house to be completed. But once that’s done you should have a bigger house with a new kitchen located on the right side of the house. You’d think you’d be able to start cooking right away but unfortunately, you’re still going to have to get your hands on some utensils.
How To Get Kitchen Utensils
Cooking utensils can be bought at the Socket & Pan store in town. It’s situated just in the centre, around beside the furniture store. It’s run by the very handsome Luke and he’ll be able to sell you a kitchen utensil. The utensils change every day and you can only buy one at a time, so it’ll take you a couple of days as well as a good hunk of change to get them all.
There are so far nine different kitchen utensils in Coral Island for you to buy:
- Ceramic Bowl
- Chef Knife
- Frying Pan – 3,500g
- Grill – 3,000g
- Seasoning Set
After you have purchased the kitchen utensil, the item will automatically spawn inside your home. So you don’t have to manually bring the item to your farm yourself.
Cooking ingredients can be obtained in a variety of ways: farming, ranching, scavenging, or fishing. Some dishes require you to use the exact ingredient, others require an ingredient from a certain group of ingredients (say any vegetable, any fruit or any fish). The quality of ingredients used does not matter.
How To GET RECIPES
You can get recipes in Coral Island from the people in town. Talk to them every day and give them gifts and eventually, they’ll share with you some of their favourite recipes in the mail.
