To craft a cooking station, first, you will need to craft a hammer. With the hammer equipped, you need 2 pieces of wood to create the cooking station. After that, make sure to place it on top of a campfire. When you have done all of that, you can start roasting raw meat.

It takes exactly 36 seconds for raw meat to cook. To know when your food is done, a sizzling sound effect plays, signaling that your food is ready for eating!

Be careful not to burn your food!

If you leave raw meat roasting for too long, it will burn up! If you leave it there for exactly 35 seconds too long, it will turn into coal. Don't worry though, in exchange for a hearty meal, you get a fuel source!

Cooking in a Cauldron

Later on, you gain the knowledge to craft a cauldron which allows you to cook more complicated dishes!

To be able to craft a couldron, you will need to have tin and a smelter first. Once you already have a smelter, then you can process your tin and craft a couldron. Make sure to put it on top of a campfire!

    • Soap most likely originated from when people cooked food on a spit and the fat dripped on to the white ash in the fire and when combined with water it made a lather. Adding soap could introduce hygiene factors into the game. They could introduce it similar to how the hunger works, like, the better your hygiene, the more health/stamina you can gain. Making soap could consist of cooking meat over the spit, the fat mixing with ash and then mixing it with water could give you soap.
