There’s so much more to discuss, too much for this guide. The update includes so many things, this is all a bit overwhelming. Animal Crossing: New Horizons 2.0 is packing in the nonsense, and there are a lot of new features incoming.
One of many new features is farming and cooking. You can make various new DIY Recipes to cook meals in-game, pretty cool. Here’s how to unlock the new cooking recipes.
When you’re sitting in a fully upgraded Resident Services, you need to head over to the Nook Stop terminal. Open it up and look at the list of available upgrades. You need to purchase the Be a Chef! DIY Recipes+ upgrade to get cooking recipes in ANCH. This will cost you 2,000 Nook Miles. You then need to head over to Nook’s Cranny and open the cabinet to the side of the fully upgraded store. There’s a new Basic Recipes Book item in there. Buy that for 4,980 Bells to unlock all the new DIY Recipes. You can now go out, farming and cooking to your heart’s content.
The various cooking recipes in Animal Crossing New Horizons can take many forms. You can grow wheat to make flour, or maybe tomatoes to make sauce. You might even be able to make pizza depending on what else is included in Animal Crossing New Horizons 2.0.
