My Time At Sandrock – All Recipes And Cooking Guide (Updated)

We’re really enjoying My Time At Sandrock as you can tell by our many guides on the subject. Cooking is a great mechanic to make food yourself some food when you go ruin diving. But it’s also fun to find out everyone’s favourite recipes and give them to them as gifts!

While most things are somewhat doable to figure out Cooking is one thing that really isn’t clear. I don’t know if it’s by design or because the game is still in Early Access but Cooking is one thing that isn’t too clear here. So in this guide, we’ll go step by step through the various crafting stations you’ll need. As well as the recipes and their discovery process.

Disclaimer: My Time At Sandrock was released on the 26th of May 2022 in Early Access. As such information in this guide is subject to changes and additions. We’ll be adding more to this guide as the game updates!

   

Cooking Stations

My Time At Sandrock, Pathea Games, Early Access, Life Farming Sim, Cooking, Recipe Guide

The productivity of your workshop in My Time At Sandrock is linked to the various machines that you have in there. In the beginning, you’ll be heading to Qi to give him some Data Discs for schematics. With some of the most important being the Grinder, Processor, Dew Collector etc. But once everything is up and running start your Cooking journey by unlocking the Drying Rack first.

These are all the cooking machines available in My Time At Sandrock now.

How To Unlock Recipes

The recipe discovery process in My Time At Sandrock is a bit random, to say the least. It involves experimentation and discovery with your cooking machines. Simply go to your Cooking Station and select whichever ingredients you’d like to add in and cook.

  1. Select at least one Main Ingredient.
  2. Select one or more additional ingredients or herbs.
  3. Select your Cooking Tool.
  4. Hit the Confirm button.

If you manage to stumble upon a correct recipe, you’ll get that new recipe’s result in your inventory and you can add it to your list. If not, you’ll get Food Scraps and effectively waste the food.

In this case, it’s probably better to follow a recipe if you’re not keen on wasting food and time. One way is to befriend the people of Sandrock. As you get to know them better, they’ll teach you recipes and you can in turn sell whatever recipes you have to them.

This makes cooking much easier because you’ll be able to select the recipe at your Cooking Station and let it auto-cook, provided you have said recipe and its ingredients.
