How to Cook in Project Zomboid
To cook in Project Zomboid, some requirements are needed first. The first thing you need is the ingredients for the dish you’re going to make. While the ingredients of each dish and recipe change, the number of ingredients you need also change. Therefore, you need to analyze the meal ingredients well before cooking it.
Secondly, you need a certain container for cooking. The container of each dish varies. For example, you can cook some dishes in a griddle pan, while for another one you need a frying pan.
Thirdly, the source of fire to cook the food may also vary depending on the recipe. Some dishes are cooked at a certain temperature in the microwave, while others may require a different heat source.
You need to pay close attention to these requirements before cooking or the cooking process may fail. Now we can move on to how to cook.
Cooking in Project Zomboid takes place from the “Crafting” menu on the left of the screen. After entering the Crafting menu, you need to click on the “Cooking” section.
Here you can see the recipes of the dishes you can cook. You can find the requirements of each recipe listed above on this page. Also, when you complete all the requirements for a recipe, the recipe for that dish will change color and appear in the brighter text.
After preparing the food from this tab, you need to cook it. For this, you need to use the “Base item” in the recipe of the dish.
To cook a meal, all you have to do is open your inventory and drag and drop the food you want to cook into the food container of your choice. You can change the food container from the right side of your inventory.
After successfully placing the food in the container, you can start cooking the product. At this point, the thing you need to pay attention to is to set the temperature of the microwave and how long to cook. To open the microwave settings, simply right-click the product in the food container.
It is very important that the food you cook does not burn. Because burning food can have negative effects on you and even cause you to get sick because of burnt food. Therefore, be careful not to burn it while cooking.
You can also learn new recipes by finding different magazines in various venues in Project Zomboid. Thanks to this feature, which adds richness to the game, you can cook more different dishes in the future.
Moreover, you can also find different food containers by wandering around the map and adding them to your inventory so that you can cook various recipes.
If you pay attention to these points, you can easily cook in Project Zomboid and make it easier for you to survive in the chaotic environment of the game. Bon appetit!
