Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes list: How to make every meal

1 year ago 130

Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes are one of the most confusing parts of the game. Thankfully, with our recipe list you can easily cook up a storm.

While most of the game tends to give players clear instructions, when it comes to making dishes you have to either find the recipe itself or do some trial and error with ingredients.

That would be fine were it not for the fact that some quests, Dreamlight Duties and Event Duties ask you to create specific dishes.

Our Disney Dreamlight Valley recipes list, then, will help you figure out how to make some of the dishes you don’t have recipes for yet.

We’ve added a separate list at the end of this guide which only contains the 5-star recipes, to make it easier to do tasks that require you to make one.

Disney Dreamlight Valley guide: How to cook

To cook in Dreamlight Valley, you need to gather ingredients and find a stove.

There are several methods of gathering your ingredients, including:

  • gathering from from trees and the ground
  • farming your own by buying seeds and growing them
  • buying them from stalls
  • buying them from Remy once Chez Remy is open

If there’s a specific ingredient you’re looking for, go to the Collection screen and choose the Ingredients tab. There you’ll find every ingredient in the game, and by selecting one you’ll see where you can find or buy it.

 How to make every meal

Once you’ve got the ingredients you need, find a stove – either the one in your own house or the one in Chez Remy – and use it. You’ll be able to drop up to five ingredients into the stove, and can then choose Start Cooking to make the meal.

You also need Coal Ore every time you use the stove, but this can easily be found anywhere in the game, usually by digging.

Also, here’s a tip: you don’t need to have an ingredient in your inventory to use it when cooking. If you have ingredients stored in a chest, they’ll all be available to you when you use the stove.


Disney Dreamlight Valley guide: 3, 4 and 5-star recipes

Sometimes the game will specifically ask you to make a three-star, four-star or five-star meal.

At first, you may not know what this means, especially when you’re using this guide to try new recipes for the first time.

In reality, it’s actually quite easy to work out how many stars a new recipe is worth: it depends on how many ingredients it uses.

 How to make every mealRoot beer is made with ginger, sugarcane and vanilla, so it’s a 3-star recipe

So if, for example, you look at Gazpacho, the recipe to make that is cucumber, tomato, onion, spice. Because it uses four ingredients, that’s going to be a 4-star meal.

The five-star meals, then, are the ones listed below which consist of five ingredients.

Note: only the official ingredients in a recipe count. You can’t take, say, a 3-star recipe and add two more random ingredients to it to make it a 5-star one. All that will do is make the meal worth more if you sell it.


Disney Dreamlight Valley guide: How to get coffee beans

While all the other ingredients in Dreamlight Valley are easy enough to find – either by buying them from Goofy, buying them from Remy’s cafe (once it’s opened) and harvesting them – coffee beans require a longer process.

First you have to unlock Stitch. You do this by following these steps:

  • Finding the Slimy Stocking Sock on Dazzle Beach, and talking to Donald about it
  • Waiting five days, finding the Chewed-Up Sock in the Peaceful Meadow and talking to Goofy and Donald about it
  • Waiting five more days, finding the Knitted Orange Sock in the Forest of Valor and talking to Merlin and Donald about it
  • Placing the Homing Beacon on Skull Island then heading to Stitch’s ship

Once Stitch has become a villager in Dreamlight Valley, you can then start taking on his quests. When you reach his level 4 quest you’ll have to plant a coffee tree – once this is done you’ll finally get access to coffee beans.

So far there are only three recipes that use coffee beans – coffee, latte and mocha. You can find their recipes below.


Disney Dreamlight Valley guide: List of recipes

Note: when a recipe includes any of the following ingredients, it means you can add any ingredient that falls into that category:

  • Vegetable
  • Fruit
  • Grain
  • Dairy/Oil
  • Fish
  • Seafood
  • Spice (including herbs)
  • Sweet

For example, if a recipe calls for ‘fish, vegetable, vegetable’, you could make that dish in a variety of ways, such as ‘bass, carrot, cucumber’ or ‘cod, onion, onion’.

At the bottom of this guide is a list of every ingredient in the game and each category they come under, because it’s not the same as the categories in the Collection’s ‘Ingredients’ page.
