Recipe[edit | edit source]

The cook can be given specific items to aid in the creation of new recipes. These food items are more powerful than the Cook's basic food and offer more life, buff duration and an added Well Fed. After donating the suitable amount for each food, the Cook will give the player 5 free samples of the food, except for Bacon, and start selling them. The Cook will take one item per click and can hold on to any number of a single type of ingredient, but will only create new food if the total amount he has is enough.

  • "I'm stuck with dull knives while you wield weapons of unimaginable power? Give me a break..."
  • "No one should go adventuring on an empty stomach. Eat well, hero!"
  • "Supply me with the proper ingredients, and I can make some truly powerful foods for you, hero!"
  • "That kid [Name of Angler] is so stingy with his fish. He has a million of them and he can't spare a single one for some fish fillet?" (Only if Angler is present)
  • "Cooking for [Name of Dryad] is no easy task. She simply refuses to eat any form of meat!" (Only if Dryad is present)
  • "The last time [Name of Witch Doctor] asked me to cook for him, he requested bugs! This truly is a strange place..." (Only if Witch Doctor is present)

When the player clicks Supply Ingredients:

  • If player doesn't have any valid ingredients:
  • "Looks like you don't have any ingredients in your bag. If you can find enough of an ingredient I'm looking for, I can supply you with new purchasable foods. Some of these dishes will be far more powerful than my usual wares, so keep your eyes peeled for unique ingredients!"
  • Blueberry Salad: "Ah, just enough blueberries to start making blueberry salad. Please enjoy, [Name of Player]!"
  • Chi Tea: "Leaves? You want me to cook some food... with leaves? Well I don't think these would really work in a salad, so how about some tea instead? I'm sure it will calm you down if you're stressed."
  • Hot Chocolate: "These were exactly what I was missing for my special hot chocolate recipe! If you're planning on going somewhere a little chilly, these will warm you right up for sure."
  • Sauteed Shroom: "This crisp morel was just asking to be put in a dish, I hope it's to your liking!"

  • Mean n' Green Stew: "With just the right amount of green, this dish gets real mean. Be careful eating it!"
  • Sea Spaghetti: "Not a single wheat stalk in sight... I guess kelp can suffice as a noodle, if prepared correctly at least."
  • Sunny Day Lemonade: "When I was younger, my mother would always greet me with some ice cold lemonade after a day of playing in the sun... I miss the simpler times."
  • Sky Bloom Cocktail: "Yunno, its not just called a 'Sky Blue Flower' because of its color. Some say they've fallen from the sky islands themselves long ago."
  • Blood Root Goop: "Last time I took a swig of this stuff, I started thinking everything was out to get me... But hey, maybe that's what you're looking for?"
  • Glowing Souffle: "Ah, glowing mushrooms, a staple in the diet of a Terrarian! Hopefully this recipe offers a little more 'pizazz' to its taste."
  • Etherian Grog: "I can tell this was written by an ogre... still, the pictures give me a clear idea on how to brew this. Be careful with this stuff, it's highly potent!"
  • Life Fruit Platter: "I'm honored that you'd trust me with such rare commodities. Hopefully this new recipe suits your fancy!"
  • Mana Delight: "I myself don't know much about the Hallow, it's a rather strange place... But berries are berries, right?"
  • Bacon: "So the legends are true... The kitchen scholars thought this recipe was lost to time, but it's right in front of me. I can barely contain my excitement to try it out!"

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • One of the Cook's lines, "That kid [Name of Angler] is so stingy with his fish. He has a million of them and he can't spare a single one for some fish fillet?", seemingly contradicts with one of Angler's lines in the base game, "There's no chefs in all of [Name of World], so I have to cook all this fish myself!"
