Valheim is a game all about surviving the harsh wilderness of a Viking fantasy land. And yes, that’s as harrowing as it sounds. You need to hunt, battle and craft your way to power as you journey across this massive world. There are endless biomes to explore within the procedurally-generated world. And within that world, are endless monsters and horrors. You will need all your strength to live through this, and food in Velheim is the best way to keep up your strength.
And with the developers promising five expansions throughout the game’s life, there’s so much more to come. That means that it can’t hurt to learn the basics. One of the core elements of surviving in this game is food in Valheim. To cook food, you need to find the components and cook them with certain upgrades at the workbench. Use this guide to figure out all the cooking recipes in the game.

What’s the best food in Valheim?
Sausages are one of the best general foods in the game. If you want just basic food, you can go fishing in the game, but that’s not as sustainable. Other options are good too. If you want to churn out plenty of those, you will need to set up a farming system for boar to get plenty of raw meat. That will, of course, entail also having a farming setup for carrots or another food source for the piggies. It’s a pretty involved process, but it’s worth it for long-term survival.
Rarer recipes like Blood Pudding, Lox Meat Pie, and Serpent Stew will restore more Health per tick, but require boss parts in some cases. Fish Wraps are comparable to all of these in Healing and Stamina recovery, and much easier to make. You might want to consider going for Fish Wraps if you’re looking for the easiest recipe with the best stats. Any of these will give you 250 Stamina, 220 Health and long duration on regen effects.
