Disney Dreamlight Valley is equal parts farming simulator and equal parts everything else. You can forage, harvest, fish, craft and the best; you can make all the delicious food in the world, as long as you have all the right ingredients.
There are over 100 meals to prepare, and the best way to unlock them is to try different combinations to see what you can cook. With appetizers, main courses, snacks and desserts, there’s so much variety and an endless supply of memories to form. Whether you like it sweet or prefer it savory, there’s always a recipe that looks just as delicious as its real-world counterpart.
ten Seafood platter
Any Seafood X2
The seafood platter is a plate of prawns, oysters, clams, cockles, lobster and a few lemons – a lively plate that falls into the appetizer category. Shellfish look perfectly cooked, full of color and succulent flavor. The shelled food looks juicy and everything is thoughtfully placed. They weren’t just thrown away as an afterthought.
Making a tray with that much food would take hours longer than in Disney Dreamlight; it would also take a lot more ingredients than the two pieces of seafood you’re boiling.
9 Arrabbiata Spaghetti
Wheat, tomato, pepper
Spaghetti comes in all shapes and sizes, from simple and admittedly dry pasta to tomato-based dish with a spicy kick. Arrabbiata spaghetti is pasta in a tomato sauce, herbs to taste, chili for the spice and extra tomato slices to really bring the flavor home. Although there is apparently no cheese on this version of the dish, we can only hope that it is hidden among the ingredients.
It’s simple but something anyone can do. This meal could be the perfect excuse to try cooking Spaghetti Arrabbiata for yourself.
Eggs, sugar cane
Tamagoyaki is a Japanese breakfast dish consisting of eggs rolled together to create a type of omelet. The sugar mixture gives it a sweet taste that goes well with the texture of the eggs. Plus, the colors used in Disney Dreamlight make the meal look extremely tasty, even if you don’t initially know what it looks like.
A white, yellow on top, and black bottom wrapped around to give Tamagoyaki a unique look that pairs with its unique taste. Many of the Japanese dishes in the game look alike visually, but Tamagoyaki is by far the best.
seven Greek pizza
Any grass, tomato, onion, cheese, wheat
Pizza is simply the best in all circumstances. In real life, pizza is a universally loved food when baked at home, ordered in a restaurant, described in tactful words or shown in the background of a movie. Something maybe better than a standard Margherita is a pizza with all the toppings. Tomatoes, onions, olives, cheese — everything.
The crust is chewy, maybe stuffed with cheese, the toppings are generous, and best of all, it’s all for one person – no more fighting between the final slice.
6 Spicy sea bream in the oven
Sea bream, chilli, butter
Whether you eat fish or not, you can’t deny how tasty spicy baked sea bream is. Any food with spices is always a plus as it adds flavor to what might otherwise be a bland meal. The fish is placed in the middle with tomatoes, and the chilli is evenly spaced around the dish.
Then there’s a yellow sauce-style stuff that could be the butter of the dish, placed meaningfully to add a bit more seasoning. Again, the way the ingredients are placed on the plate makes for a worthy recipe.
5 Peanut butter waffles
Peanuts, wheat, eggs, milk
It’s no surprise that desserts take up most of the rest of this list. After all, who doesn’t love something with a little sugar? There are so many options to choose from that even those who prefer home-cooked meals or don’t like peanut butter will definitely find these Mickey Mouse-shaped waffles mouth-watering.
The chewy texture, perfectly baked waffles, and taste of peanut butter drizzle make this a dessert to try for yourself. Or if you prefer to sit and gawk, that’s fine too.
4 Cheese board
Maybe this entry is a little biased because Remy is in the picture, but there’s nothing wrong with a simple cheese platter, especially when that platter has something for everyone. There are different types of cheese to taste and even other ingredients if you are allergic to cheese or it’s just not your kind of food.
Delicious purple grapes, carrots and cucumbers, as well as the different dips, and the platter advantage of being a sharing course that all your friends can try. This type of meal is something you can buy anywhere in the physical world.
3 a coconut cake
Coconut, wheat, eggs, sugar cane
Coconuts aren’t unlocked until you bring Maui to the Valley, and you’ll need to get Moana before doing this, so you’ll have to wait a while before you can make this delicious treat yourself. In the meantime, you can wander through the woes of the imagination thinking how delicious Disney Dreamlight Coconut Cake must be.
The soft butter sponge, the icing spread between the cake and the top too, the coconut sprinkled all over. This cake looks lovely and would probably taste amazing too.
2 wonderland cookies
Butter, sugar cane, vanilla, wheat
What could be better than the glorious nature of coconut cake? Why decorated cookies, of course. But these cookies are not just any cookies; they are specially designed after Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland”, giving them their appropriate name. These treats represent what Alice eats in the film to regain her human size, and luckily for us, in game form, they look even more remarkable than their cinematic counterpart.
Wonderland cookies are an assortment of shapes, colors and flavors although unfortunately we cannot taste them through the screen.
1 Apple pie
Apple, wheat, butter
Who doesn’t love a good apple pie? You can eat it warm or at room temperature. It does not matter. This is a recipe that tastes great no matter how it’s made. It also looks effortlessly delicious, with the pattern on the dough and the rouge oozing from below. Seriously, imagine walking into a cafe. It’s been a long day, you’re exhausted and you still have a slice of apple pie, the perfect companion to your boiling jug of caffeine. So naturally, you would want to buy it.
And you’ll want to buy it too with its incredibly delicious appearance, so much so that it trumps every other meal in the game.
