Stardew Valley is set to get its very own cookbook which will allow fans to experience the tastes of over 50 recipes from the beloved farming RPG when it releases in spring 2024.
“I would like to announce the upcoming Stardew Valley Cookbook,” read a post on developer ConcernedApe’s X account. “It’ll be out next spring, and includes 50 recipes from the game such as Pink Cake, Salad, and the Strange Bun,” it said.
Food is a cornerstone of Stardew Valley experience. Players hoping to get the most out of the short in game day can replenish energy by consuming the pixelated snacks, while those slogging their way through the sleepy town’s monster-infested mines rely heavily on meals to replenish health lost in combat. It is also part of the social fabric of the game. Recipes for new dishes can be given by grateful NPCs, which in turn can be cooked and given to villages to strengthen the bond between them and the player.

According to the post, and judging by the cover, the Survival Burger, Lucky Lunch, Pink Cake, and the questionable Strange Bun will all likely be featured in the book.
The post announcing the recipe book already has 47,000 likes and almost 10,000 reposts, with many fans taking to the comments to express their excitement at the prospect of discovering the canon tastes of their favourite in-game dishes.

In an updated 2018 review IGN gave Stardew Valley a 9.5/10, describing it as a “beautiful, fun game” that has benefit from several major updates that have helped nurture it “into an even greater farming RPG, with a better base for new players, and plenty of new goals for seasoned farmers”.
