Animal Crossing: New Horizons received a major 2.0 update that brought a host of new features, including the ability to cook meals for yourself, villagers, and friends. We’ll show you how to cook meals in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the video below.

How to prepare food

You must first create a stone kitchen in Animal Crossing: New Horizons before you can cook. To receive the recipe, head to the Resident Services Nook Stop and purchase the Be a Chef! DIY recipes + package. This will update your phone’s DIY software to incorporate recipes, as well as add the Stonework Kitchen recipe to your collection.

To craft the Stonework Kitchen, you need the following:

Stone x 30
Clay x 15
Iron Nugget x 10

Ways to get the recipe

Once you get them, go to a crafting table and start working on your stone kitchen. When you interact with the Stonework Kitchen, you will be able to examine all of the cooking recipes you have collected so far. You can cook a dinner right away if you have the necessary components on hand. Some dishes will simply require basic ingredients, such as seabass and weeds, but the majority will also require you to obtain crops, such as carrots, which will require significant effort.

Head to Nook’s Cranny and purchase Timmy and Tommy’s Basic Cooking Recipe Pack to acquire your first batch of recipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This will provide you with some basic recipes to work with. Recipes can also be obtained by catching or collecting the necessary items. For example, the next time you go fishing, you will definitely come home with new recipes for some of the fish you catch.
