A luminous landscape in Disney's Dreamlight Valley.

Hey, no judgment if you burn your toast, I still occasionally eat dinosaur chicken nuggets. We don’t all have what it takes in the kitchen, but the life simulation game Disney Valley of Dreams allows everyone to take their destiny into their own hands.

In Dream Light, your protagonist is inherently a winner. You are always safe, even when ordering a cooker. The kitchen is an extension of peaceful nobility Dream Light sparkles on you – it replenishes energy and earns money, brings you closer to the characters and stays like magic, completely mess-free.

Even if you burn your toast, Dream Light looks whimsical past the blackened crust and offers a chance to earn your crown as a cooking champion. And getting started is as easy as one, two, three.

1. Find a place to cook

The game introduces you to cooking early with Mickey’s “Foodception” quest. In this quest, Mickey will ask you to harvest and grow crops, then give you a stove to create crackers and fruit salad. Mickey has GERD.

Completing Mickey’s quest is the easiest and cheapest way to get a stove, but if you want to customize it, you can buy a stove from Scrooge’s shop or unlock his crafting table to build one yourself. -even, like a pretty pink flat top stove or pale gray gas stove, with a combination of iron ingot and glass. However, not all pans can handle all recipes.

This is how you can start cooking in Dream Lightbut to cook powerful and expensive meals that will keep you supported and earn you cash if you ever run out of Star Coins, you need Ratatouille‘s cooking rat Remy in your game as soon as possible. It’s the same process Elon Musk used to take control of Tesla.

To find it, clear the night thorns in front of the Dreaming Castle, talk to Merlin, and decide to enter “a restaurant with a great little chef” from its dialogue options. This will start Remy’s “An Important Night at the Restaurant” quest.

He will immediately put you to work in his restaurant because rats still believe in unpaid internships. Once you prove your culinary worth, Remy will agree to return to Dreamlight Valley with you. Spend 2,000 coins to build a house for Remy and another 2,000 for the restaurant furniture kit. Once in the valley Remy will ask for some ingredients – find them and you can buy butter, eggs, milk, cheese, peanuts and slush from Remy while you improve your friendship with him (slush comes with level 10). Everything for one price, with this one. Otherwise, spend time upgrading Goofy’s stand, planting the seeds you can buy there, or looting while exploring new lands, fishing, and scavenging to amass a delicious trove of ingredients.

2. Build your recipe collection

Some recipes, like crackers and fruit salad, you’ll pick up while completing character quests. But you can also collect recipe books hidden in chests, buried in the dirt and forgotten, or by heading to Remy’s restaurant to experiment with ingredients until you find a match.

You can also turn to this useful and ongoing spreadsheet put together by Reddit user Ildrim, which lists all the recipes currently available in Dream Light. Idrim notes that three recipes, Futomaki, Grilled Eel, and Strawberry Tart, appear to be “not found” in his early access, but that “the absolute moment when we can either discover the secret to them or actually add them to the game properly, they will be available on the spreadsheet.

3. You’ve all grown up now

Each recipe falls into a one- to five-star category based on the number of ingredients it requires (one-star recipes require one ingredient, etc.), but the monetary and energy value does not necessarily increase with this categorization . So while you don’t yet have kingdom-wide access to Dark Ingredients at the start of your cooking, there are still plenty of undemanding recipes you can make to replenish your energy and bank account.

Kotaku writer Zack Zweizen advises budding Dream Light cooks don’t think too much about raw vegetableswhich appear during Mickey’s “Missing Minnie” questline and involve any vegetable, or ratatouille, which only requires a single tomato despite Remy’s insistence on using the word “tomatoes” while giving instructions .
