Cozy Caravan – The Complete Cooking and Recipe Guide

Cozy Caravan is a life sim game where you spend your time having adventures and making friends on a picturesque caravan journey. It’s just you, a fuzzy bumblebee named Rigby and of course, your trusty caravan, visiting small towns to sell your wares. Each place you visit will be brimming with friendly faces in need of a helping hand.

As a travelling salesman, you’ll gather resources, craft charming goods, and barter with the locals, all while spreading kindness and earning Guild Tokens. Cozy Caravan is a delightful blend of exploration, crafting, and trading. There’s plenty to see and do in the game, but in this guide, we’ll be focusing on cooking and the wonderful recipes that you can whip up in Cozy Caravan. Use these delicious meals to sell at the market or to help a new friend in need.

Some recipes will be unlocked automatically once you gain access to cooking or harvest certain ingredients, but others are earned through quests or talking to certain NPCs. To help you out, here’s a complete guide to every recipe in the game so far and where to get it.

Disclaimer: Cozy Caravan launched in Steam Early Access in May 2024, as such details of this article are subject to change as the game updates.

How To Start Cooking

To begin cooking in Cozy Caravan you’ll need to unlock the kitchen by upgrading your caravan. You can do this in Basselbrook by purchasing a Cooking Table and Oven upgrade from the Guild Rep. Arthur. After you buy the Cooking Table upgrade, Arthur will teach you the first recipe – salad.

From then on, you’ll unlock new recipes by completing quests and talking to different people around town. Some will require upgrades to the Cooking Table or Oven, so you’ll need to keep collecting Guild Tokens to make all of your new recipes.

Do note that you can only cook using ingredients that are in your backpack, so check the recipe book and grab everything you need from the inventory chest before you go to the cooking station.
