Valheim is one of the best survival games, combining Viking lore with vast landscapes and fierce mythical enemies. To experience all that the game has to offer, you must constantly monitor your character’s health to ensure he is getting enough food, sleep, and water to stay in combat.
This involves cooking different foods that give your character powerful buffs to give you an edge in combat and exploration. From honey-soaked meats to honey-drenched carrots, here are the best Valheim culinary pairings that will give you the energy you need to conquer her tenth world in Norse.
8 Grilled Necktail and Carrot Soup: A Delicious Homemade Meal
A great choice for an early-game Valheim food combination, Grilled Neck Tail and Carrot Soup can be made using simple ingredients that can be easily found in the starting area of the game. It comes from the “neck”, an amphibious four-eyed green creature found near water in the Meadows biome.
Grilling Necktail alone gives you +25 Health and +8 Stamina, but incorporating Carrot Soup into this dish makes it even more potent. Consisting of only 3 carrots and 1 mushroom, this delicious concoction provides an additional +15 health and +45 stamina.
7 Cooking Rocks Meat with Queen’s Jam: sweet and savory
This next recipe is a bit more advanced and requires an upgraded Iron Cooking Station rather than the basic one. Once you’ve created your station, you’ll need to hunt the shaggy-haired reptile Lox in the plains biome to gather its meat before cooking it over an open fire.
While you’re at it, collect as many raspberries and blueberries as you can find from the Meadows and Black Forest biomes respectively. , gives +14 health and +40 stamina.
6 Honey-cooked snake meat: slimy smattering
Who doesn’t like the smell of spit-roasted snake meat in the morning? Assuming you already have both an iron cooking station and an upgraded ship, head out to the high seas keeping an eye out for sea snakes. Adversaries tend to attack ships traveling across the Sea of Valheim, and can put up quite a fight.
However, if you manage to defeat the sea snake, you’ll be rewarded with one of the best meats in the game that you can cook to further enhance its potency. By default, cooked snake meat grants +70 health and +23 stamina. You can add an additional +8 health and +35 stamina by combining it with honey from a nearby beehive.
Five Baked fish with turnip stew
Another relatively easy recipe to prepare, a fish wrap with turnip stew relies on readily available ingredients that can put your old fishing rod to good use. Raw fish must be collected before putting it in the cauldron. Combine 2 cooked fish and 4 barley flour to make a fish wrap.
Eating this meal will increase Health and Stamina by +70 and +23 respectively. If that’s not enough, turnip stew can be assigned to his second course slot by using a level 2 cauldron to combine turnip and boar meat (meadows biome).
Four Queen’s Jam with Cooked Wild Boar Meat: Making Use of Leftovers
If you still have some leftover Queen’s Jam and cooked boar meat from previous recipes, you can combine them and discover all-new food combinations in Valheim. This recipe calls for 8 flame-cooked raspberries, 6 blueberries, and at least 1 slice of wild boar.
Raspberries and boars are easy to find, but blueberries can be a bit tricky, as they only spawn in the Black Forest biome or in random barrels outside abandoned towers. These two meals together give the character +44 health and +50 stamina.
3 Sausage and minced meat sauce: hearty
If you’ve ever felt particularly carnivorous, this next food combination will hit the spot, boasting an impressive +95 health and +31 stamina regeneration for 1,500 seconds. It is a sausage and can only be cooked in a level 2 cauldron using boar meat, thistles and entrails (dropped by slain draugrs in swamp biomes).
For the minced meat sauce, you’ll need wild boar meat, 1 neck tail, and 1 carrot for each serving. It is possible.
2 Tasty Meaded Fish and Bread: Speedy Stamina Recovery
Next, fish and bread and savory mead are food combinations that help keep your character’s stamina up in tense boss fights. To make Fish N’ Bread, he needs 1 anglerfish (found in the waters around the Mistlands biome) and he needs 2 bread doughs (made from barley flour using a level 4 cauldron).
Additionally, the Tasty Mead recipe requires 10 honey, 10 raspberries, and 5 blueberries. Combining these two recipes gives you +30 health, +90 stamina, and +300% stamina regeneration for 10 seconds, but at the cost of -50% health regeneration.
1 Missshare Supreme and Major Healing Mead: Pinch HP
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Misthare Supreme and Major Healing Mead are one of the best Valheim food combinations to refill your Viking health bar. The first step is to use a level 5 Cauldron to cook Miss Hare Supreme, mix 3 Jotun Puffs, 2 Carrots, and 1 Hare Meat, then put it all in the Kiln.
To wash down this delicious dish with Major Healing Mead, you’ll need to cook a Major Healing Base using 10 Honey, 4 Blood Clots, and 5 Royal Jelly. The concoction is then placed in a fermenter (made from 30 Fine Wood, 5 Bronze, and 10 Resin) until ready. Gives +28 Stamina.
