Harvest Island – The Complete Cooking And Recipe Guide

2023 has been rife with farming and life sims, each with its own unique take on the genre. We have Roots of Pacha that have you farming in the Stone Age. One Lonely Outpost put you farming on Mars. And now we have Harvest Island which is giving us dark horror elements along with our farming. So while you’re watering your crops and looking after livestock, you’ll also need to give appropriate offerings to the gods. As well as unfold the horror mystery in this maze-like island.

It’s just you, your brother and your Dad that live on this dark island. You’ve been told to never ask any questions, don’t stray too far from the farm and always give offerings to the Gods. Spend most of your time exploring, looking for answers about who you really are and what’s out there beyond your farm.

Just like any farming and life sim game, one of Harvest Island’s main mechanics is cooking. Use those hard-grown or foraged items to make tasty meals that will give you extra Bless and Stamina. Here’s everything you need to know about cooking in Harvest Island.

   

How To Start Cooking

There are four different cooking stations in Harvest Island, 2 of them are located in your house and 2 outside. The 2 that are in your house are the Boiling Pot and the Kitchen. While the Fire Pit and the Bread Oven are located outside.

To begin cooking you’ll need to interact with the Cooking Station by pressing the Space Bar. This will bring up the Cooking Menu which will contain a list of recipes you have obtained. You can acquire additional recipes from sources such as books. To cook all you need to do is have the right ingredients needed, then select the dish and confirm to automatically cook your meal.

Your finished meal will appear in your Rucksack and can be consumed anytime.

The Boiling Pot is the first cooking area you unlock in the game, it can be used pretty much right away and is located in your house on the home farm.
