Every Food Recipe in Valheim (& How to Cook Them)

Amanda M. Rye

It’s important to eat well in Valheim, as different combinations of food can provide important buffs. There are currently 14 recipes players can cook.

In survival games like Valheim, making sure to have access to good food is extremely important. At the start of a new game, players will likely find their Viking foraging for foods like berries and mushrooms in the Meadows biome. However, as players begin to explore and progress, they will be able to access more food items, including meats, Honey, fish, and root vegetables. Once players have a Cooking Stand built in their home, they will be able to cook meals for themselves. Eventually, they can discover more complex recipes. Upon consuming these recipes, players will receive various buffs that can be useful when summoning and fighting bosses or simply trying to explore more of the world in new ways.
