How To Cook For Your Spirits

Spiritfarer How To Cook For Spirits

The cooking mini-game is probably the easiest one in the game, with the only requirement being time. Once you have built a kitchen, you can go inside and interact with the oven to start cooking. Select your ingredient, wait for the timer to finish, and voila! You have a meal you can now give to one of your Spirits.

The amount of time it takes to cook will depend on the ingredient selected. Feeding your Spirits food will cause their mood to go up and may advance their questline or unlock new objectives. Later on in the game, you can upgrade the kitchen, giving you the ability to combine up to two ingredients.

Try cooking with a bunch of different ingredients to discover new recipes and learn more about your crew’s taste buds. Note that any recipes you previously made can be repeated by selecting them from the ‘Recipes’ tab in the cooking menu.

All Food Likes and Dislikes

Spiritfarer Spirit Food Likes and Dislikes

Since each Spirit that boards your ship has a unique palette, some will prefer certain foods over others or may outright reject what you have to offer. Try to pay attention to their requests and hints regarding which foods they like or dislike. Giving a Spirit their favorite dish will cause their mood to go up significantly.

When a Spirit’s mood is in good standing, they’ll start to pitch in around the ship in different ways. For example, Summer will play music to make crops grow faster, Alice will cook food on her own, and Astrid will make Ingots using the Foundry. That being said, below we’ve highlighted each Spirit’s likes, dislikes, and favorite dish:
