Cooking Guide

Thank you for printing this page from to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town

Similar to real life, you can also perform Cooking in Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. One of the benefits of developing your farm is you’re able to upgrade your home to a log cabin. This will then provide you with new amenities such as your stove and your fridge which will let you cook different kinds of food.

Food can be used for eating in order for you to get stamina back, and you can also create food in order to give them as Gifts since Residents love specific types. In this cooking guide, we’ll discuss about the requirements for cooking, and what you can do with your food.

How to unlock Cooking

In order to start cooking, you’ll need a kitchen to work with. This includes a stove, as well as a fridge where you can store your ingredients and cooked items. When starting out in the game, you are living in a tent. You don’t have the space yet in order to cook, but you’ll be able to upgrade it through Nigel’s Handiworks with 2000G as well as 20 pieces of Logs.

Upgrade your home to start cooking

Once you have upgraded your house to a Log Cabin, you’ll be able to start cooking. You’ll have specific dishes you can create when starting out, but you’ll learn more along the way once you get better with your cooking Skill.

How to unlock more recipes

The list of recipes you can cook will depend on your current cooking Skill level. As you progress your way with your Skills, you’ll be able to learn more recipes up to level 10. There are some recipes in the game however which can only be unlocked for specific requirements as follows:

  • Small Fish Marinade: Unlocked after you order it at the Capeside Bistro.

  • Acqua Pazza: Unlocked after you order it at the Capeside Bistro.

  • Neapolitan Pasta: Unlocked after you order it at the Gull's Rest Hotel & Café.

  • Carbonara: Unlocked after you order it at the Capeside Bistro.

  • Peperoncino Pasta: Unlocked after you order it at the Capeside Bistro.

  • Onigiri: Unlocked after completing all of Lovett’s Gourmet Requests

    The rest of the recipes are unlocked as you level up your cooking Skill, so you just simply need to keep cooking. You will then eventually be able to get them all. The list of recipes are shown below and are grouped by category.
