In a life simulation game like Harvestella, players perform various daily activities. Cooking is one of the essential activities you'll perform, and players are eager to know how to unlock this feature in-game. Growing fruits, vegetables, and other items are essential, and you want to maintain stamina in the game. Here's how players can cook in Harvestella.
How to unlock Cooking in Harvestella?
Cooking is an essential mechanic in Harvestella, and players need to unlock this feature to keep their character fit and full of stamina. To cook in the game, you need to refurbish the kitchen. Players will find that this feature isn't available right after starting the game. However, you can unlock it by visiting the Renovator. The Renovator is located in Lethe Village, and you can find his shop on the map's southern side. Check the yellow circle on the map image above to see the exact location of the Renovator.
Players need to visit this location and interact with the Renovator. You'll find an option to purchase the Kitchen Counter. This costs around 2,000 Grilla, and we recommend saving up on the currency. The Kitchen Counter installation process also takes one full day. Once it's installed, a cut scene ensues where the Renovator informs players about cooking. After that, you'll need recipes and the necessary ingredients to cook food. After completing various missions and challenges, you can buy recipes from stores and earn them as rewards.
Remember, consuming food in Harvestella replenishes stamina and is quite essential. The Renovator also gives players a recipe for the Mountain Stir Fry. You can also purchase different recipes from the General Store. The Homely Lethe Recipe costs 300 Grilla, Selected Recipes costs 500 Grilla, while the Lethe Dessert Recipe costs around 700 Grilla. You can buy all three, but it's best to save Grilla at the start of the game. Only some ingredients are available once you progress a bit, so save on currency.
