A Stardew Valley fan has created a cute and descriptive menu of the game’s most useful early-game recipes, which provide buffs to various skills.
A fan of Stardew Valley has created a menu listing several of the game’s most useful recipes. The total number of recipes in Stardew Valley is currently at 80, requiring players to source ingredients in a variety of ways. While it is possible to play through the game without cooking, the buffs and bonuses from different dishes can give players a much-needed boost in daily tasks.
As with many games, the recipes in Stardew Valley offer players a variety of benefits upon consumption. For most, this is simply a restoration of health and energy. However, a decent number also offer additional buffs, which help the player in various aspects of the game. These buffs can temporarily improve skills and stats, or even increase the player’s maximum energy. It is also worth noting recipes can be improved further through the use of Qi seasoning, which increases a buff’s level by one for all except Speed buffs. Qi Seasoning was added to the game alongside Ginger Island in the massive 1.5 update.
With so many Stardew Valley recipes to choose between, it can be hard for players to know what to look for in their farming and foraging. zoeybadoey101 on Twitter has worked to resolve this problem with the creation of a handy and well-designed menu, which lists some of the most useful recipes for players. The menu details five different dishes and their ingredients using in-game graphics, with each one optimized for a different task. For example, Dish O’ the Sea is listed as being excellent for fishing, with a description of just what the meal’s +3 boost to the skill entails. It is also relatively easy to obtain, as the sardines it requires are a common fish found during most of the in-game year.

While the recipes zoebadoey101 has included in her menu are useful, they are not necessarily the best possible choices from Stardew Valley‘s recipe book. This is because she “wanted to make sure they can all be accessed earlier on when they are most useful.” One example of this is the Seafoam Pudding, which provides a +4 to Fishing as opposed to Dish O’ The Sea’s +3. However, the Seafoam Pudding requires rare ingredients, such as a Midnight Carp, making it an impractical option for the early stages of the game. While Dish O’ The Sea may not be the best food in the game for fishing, it is still a good alternative.
zoebadoey101 has created an excellent resource for any player of Stardew Valley. While her menu will undoubtedly have a particular appeal for those who are more unfamiliar with the game, its advice is still useful for all early-game Stardew Valley players. zoebadoey101’s use of in-game graphics indicates the required ingredients in an easy-to-understand format. The advice presented in the cute menu will likely help many Stardew Valley players quickly and easily collect their ingredient list before cooking.
