Roots of Pacha – Cooking and Recipe Guide (Updated)

Roots of Pacha is a Stardew Valley-esque farming and life sim set in the Stone Age. In this guide farming and animal cultivation are a little different from other games you might have played. You’ll have stone tools that slowly work up to bronze and iron. You’ll have a pot on a fire and an oven in the ground. And you’ll be trading in riding a horse for a bison.

In Roots of Pacha, you and your clan need to gather resources and craft tools and items to advance your clan. But all this is going to tire you out. That’s when cooking comes in! Maximise your crop harvest and other food to make it into tasty meals in your kitchen. Most will provide you with more stamina replenishment and some will give you useful buffs for your other skills.

In this guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about cooking and all 76 recipes in Roots of Pacha.

How To Start Cooking

Cooking in Roots of Pacha is quite simple, just put the right ingredients into the appropriate cooking utensil to create a meal. At the beginning of the game, you won’t have a kitchen in your own house but you can use the communal Pachan Hearth to cook some basic recipes. But once you have enough money though you can have Croll make you a house that comes with its own kitchen.

You’ll be able to buy cooking utensils from Tare later in the game. More utensils become available after completing specific Ideas or upgrading your house.
