There are several new cooking recipes available in the 2.0 update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Cooking has been totally revamped and tons of new items have been added. Additionally, new crops have been added, further diversifying the cooking and eating in the game. It's a quality of life update that is sure to enhance the gameplay and make Animal Crossing players more than happy.

There are currently several new DIY recipes for cooking, but more will likely be added in the coming days as the update is fully rolled out and more players download it.

Here's what players can expect to cook in the new 2.0 update.

It's safe to say that cooking is going to be a lot more fun with at least 20 new recipes to enjoy. Several of these recipes will also feature new crops that could not be grown previously, including:

  • Tomatoes
  • Sugarcane
  • Potatoes
  • Wheat

These are the confirmed new crops that can be grown by players (and sometimes purchased from Leif's shop) and used in recipes. For example, the tomato is necessary for the veggie sandwich recipe, so Animal Crossing players will need to grow or buy that.

As with other growable items, there will be native items to the island and others that will need to be bought from shops, like Leif's, or gotten from other islands the same way non-native species of flowers can be acquired. Pretty soon, entire islands will be filled with new crops.

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 update is live, as Nintendo decided to release it an entire day early.
