The Cooking Station is a workstation where the player can craft food items.
Opening the Cooking Station UI will show the recipes available to the current character. Many are unlocked through quests or other progression milestones.
A known recipe can only be used if the ingredients are in the player's inventory, so it is useful to have storage chests nearby with commonly-needed ingredients.
Most recipes use easily-gathered ingredients such as vegetables or fish, but some require ingredients crafted or obtained in other ways:
- In order to obtain Cow Milk and Goat Milk, the player must have a Barn and use a Wooden Bucket to interact with adult Cows or Goats.
- In order to make cheese, the player needs to craft a Churn.
The Cooking Station will only only cook one item at a time, but 10 items can be queued at once. Cook times are relatively fast compared to the Stone Oven.
When a dish is finished cooking, an in-game icon of the food will appear above the Cooking Station, up to 10 in a row. The player can retrieve the item(s) by pressing "F" near the station, or by opening the GUI and taking items out manually.
