Stardew Valley cookbook announced with recipes for pink cake, weird buns and more

Stardew Valley is set to get its own cookbook, allowing fans to experience the flavors of over 50 recipes from the popular farming RPG when it releases in Spring 2024.

“I’d like to announce the upcoming Stardew Valley cookbook,” read the post on ConcernedApe’s X developer account. “Releasing next spring, it includes 50 recipes from the game, such as Pink Cake, Salad and Weird Bun,” it said.

Food is a cornerstone of the Stardew Valley experience. Players hoping to make the most of a short game day can replenish their energy by consuming pixelated snacks, while those making their way through sleepy, monster-infested mines rely heavily on food to replenish health lost in battle. It is also part of the social fabric of the game. New food recipes can be given by grateful NPCs, which can in turn 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 book will likely feature the Survival Burger, Lucky Lunch, Pink Cake, and the dubious Strange Bun.

The post announcing the recipe book already has 47,000 likes and nearly 10,000 reposts, with many fans commenting to express their excitement at the prospect of discovering the canonical flavor of their favorite games in-game.

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