Even if cooking and recipes doesn’t come naturally to you, Disney Dreamlight Valley has found a way to make a wide array of recipes that range from extremely easy to a bit more on the challenging side. Although you will eventually get a recipe book, a part of learning to cook in the game — just like real life — is by trying things.
In order to cook the recipe that you want, you have to use ingredients in the kitchen that you think are in the meal in order to make it correctly. While some ingredients may be obvious, the game does throw some curveballs that make it a little trickier than you may expect.
The game also has two different styles of recipe requirements. For some recipes, you need to have the exact ingredients listed — such as Teriyaki Salmon, which needs salmon, soya, rice, ginger and sugarcane. A recipe like Fish Creole, on the other hand, just needs any fish, any vegetable, garlic, rice and tomato.
To cook, you place the ingredients you think are correct into the pot. If you included all the necessary ingredients, you will unlock that recipe in the collection. If you didn’t, you’ll either unlock a different, unintentional recipe or cook something generic like Grilled Seafood Platter, which is made with any three seafoods.
When you make a meal, you’ll notice the star rating that comes up at the bottom. This isn’t judging the quality of the meal, but rather how intensive it is to make. Five-star recipes require more ingredients and therefore more effort when you’re foraging or harvesting ingredients.
Once you free the Dream Castle from the curse of The Forgetting with the help of Merlin, you have the opportunity to start unlocking realms within the castle to other characters’ domains. One of the first three characters you can choose from is Remy. You’ll be transported to La Ratatouille, Remy’s Parisian bistro, where you’ll start off washing dishes and cooking some simple recipes that you learned in the Valley. Once you’ve gained Remy’s trust, he’ll ask you to help him out with his acclaimed dish — ratatouille.
Unlike the other recipes you learned, you’re on your own to determine what ingredients should go into this five-star meal. Remy will give you one hint to help you out — the meal is made with “tomatoes, three different cooked vegetables and a spice.” Fortunately, you have the entire kitchen to your disposal to try out different ingredients to see if you know how to make it.
After you successfully make the dish, Remy will decide to accompany you back to Dreamlight Valley and open a new restaurant, Chez Remy, where he’ll continue to cook for the inhabitants of the Valley. Once he’s there, you’ll have the option to work with him to complete meals as well as visit him to complete other cooking quests that will come up.
With Remy’s hint, you already know where to start. But be careful — the wrong vegetable combination will make the generic, Grilled Vegetables Platter. To complete the recipe and make the meal, what you’ll need is:
- Any “Spice”
What’s helpful about this recipe, is that the any spice in the recipe could be Oregano or Basil, which makes the dish a little easier to complete once you have the staples.
