Cooking, however, is not as straightforward as some of the other features of the game are, as you will need ingredients as well as recipes, which can be obtained in a variety of ways.
Here’s everything you need to know about cooking in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to Cook Food in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Before you can start cooking food in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you will need to collect Food DIY Recipes, as you are not able to cook anything without them. These recipes can be obtained in a variety of ways: you can get them from villagers and messages in a bottle or you can redeem the Be A Chef! DIY Recipes+ pack for 2,000 Nook Miles via Nook Miles.
With recipes on hand, you are one step closer to cooking food. You will also need ingredients, obviously, and they can be obtained by growing them yourself. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0, you can grow wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, sugarcane, carrots, and pumpkins.
With recipes and ingredients, now you can finally cook your food. Interact with the Stonework Kitchen, which can also be obtained with the Be A Chef! DIY Recipes+ pack, select the food you want to cook and you are good to go. Afterward, you can put place the food you have cooked anywhere you want as a decoration or consume it to fill your Stamina Gauge. Everything has multiple uses in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so, if you can keep your hunger at bay, you will be able to decorate your tables in some very, very, tasty ways!
