How to cook in Disney Dreamlight Valley?
Players can cook at a stove. The mechanics largely work like other games where one picks a bunch of ingredients and plops them into the cooking pot.
Experimenting with different ingredient combinations is crucial to see what works and what doesn't. In the case of the former, successful endeavors result in players obtaining recipes that can be referred to while making them again. New ones can also be learned.
A star rating system determines how good the dish is, ranging from one to five stars. However, one might question the use of these dishes. Why consume them? This lets players regain Energy. Otherwise, they can be sold to Goofy for Star Coins or gifted to an NPC to improve their relationship with them.
There are dozens of recipes to uncover, each of which can be split into three categories: Appetizers, Entrees, and Desserts.
