Learning how to cook is a massive part of life in Rune Factory 4 – it provides you with powerful healing items, special gifts for your favorite NPCs, and a lucrative money-making venture. While it's possible to ignore the feature to an extent, indulging in it will be greatly profitable.
The system is quite simple. You use ingredients and Rune Points (RP) to create dishes and learn recipes by eating Recipe Bread (or using a handy guide, hint hint). Eventually, you'll have a fully decked-out kitchen and be a culinary master.
Recipes are learned by consuming Recipe Bread, items you can buy from the staff at Porcoline's restaurant or find elsewhere, for example, as a reward for certain festivals.
This guide will list every cooking recipe in the game and its ingredients. You can cook these dishes without knowing the recipes in-game by using the 'Do not use recipe' option in the cooking menu. Be aware that there are some limits to what you can do with this:
- If the recipe level is between one and nine levels higher than your cooking skill level, your recipe might fail.
- If the recipe level is more than nine levels higher than your cooking skill level, the recipe will fail.
- If the recipe level is equal to or below your cooking skill level, the dish cannot fail.
- Failing a dish will still put the dish into your inventory as a failed dish. This dish has adverse effects and will damage both the health and the friendship level of anyone you give it to.
- Cooking a dish without knowing the recipe in-game will cost substantially more RP than it would if you knew it.
- The Cooking Table is received for free during the game's tutorial section.
- To order a Knife, Mixer, and Frying Pan, you will need to acquire an EZ Cooking License.
- To order an Oven, Steamer, and Pot, you will need to acquire a Pro Cooking License.
- What this does mean is that you could place all but one of your cooking tools in someplace remote such as the corner of a monster barn where they won't be in the way. You will still be able to use all of them from whatever you keep in your room.
When cooking, you must use the correct tool for the job. There are multiple cooking tools that you can purchase from Porcoline in exchange for money, lumber, and material stone. They are the Cooking Table, Knife, Mixer, Frying Pan, Oven, Steamer, and Pot.
These will usually take up quite a lot of room, but once you have them all, you can spend 5,000 Prince/ss Points on an order that combines the tool into one. This does not combine them into one space-saving tool but allows you to cook any recipe from any tool.
When cooking, you can take ingredients from your backpack, your storage box, and any refrigerators that you have. Refrigerators can be purchased from Porcoline just like the cooking tools, and they will hold all food items that cannot be placed inside the storage box.
When it comes to your dishes, you will get a better result by using better ingredients. Not only does this mean using higher-level items, but you'll also get a better dish by using giant versions of crops and larger dairy items (Eggs and Milk).
