Valheim Cuisine

While being lore-friendly, the mod grants a different approach on meals, especially if you're tired of gathering all those resources and not using them mid or late-game. Valheim's Cuisine gives a little more flexibility on food preparation, making good of what you have on your inventory at the moment and gives more purpose for collecting different kinds of foods and materials from different biomes.

The recipes are inspired on existing delicacies from the nordic countries, many of which trace back to the viking age, such as skause (boiled meat stew), hákarl (fermented shark meat) and morrpølse (offal meat sausage). They also reference various myths, stories, cultural aspects and social roles of the vikings, to better fit into the game.


  • More than 200 new recipes inspired on cultural nordic delicacies, with norse mythology references to fit the game;

  • Legendary recipes: special recipes with special effects obtainable only through a new crafting station, the cauldron Eldhrímnir. The foods have higher stats and higher duration than conventional foods and the potions are pretty overpower strong (don't worry, it won't break your game, they're pretty hard to make);

  • Banquets: multi-course meals, with high stats and greater duration, but heavier in weight and a decrease in movement speed;

  • Recipes using every single fish in the game, so now fishing actually pays off. Instead of just hanging fish on the wall, cook them!;

  • More oven recipes;

  • More cooking station recipes;

  • Fermented foods, obtained through the fermenter;

  • Useful potions and meads, craftable through the cauldron or via fermenter or exclusively sold by Haldor;


  • Balance may be a tricky thing; the more recipes there are, the more difficult it gets. Furthermore, since every player has it's own mod setup, this mod will never be fully balanced for each user. The mod's balancing try to follow the game's logic, so values use biome level, ingredient quantity, ingredient rarity and recipe complexity as criteria. If these values don't fit your game (if you use mods that increase the game's difficulty or if you use Epic Loot and want to remove trophies from recipes, for example), you can change most of them in the config file XutzBR.ValheimCuisine.cfg;

  • Item effects are also configurable (if you want to remove the speed penalty of banquets, for example), but through wacky's database files. On WackysDatabase page you'll find how to properly edit things. Everything with the prefix VC_ is related to the mod;

  • In the mod’s configuration file, drops are displayed like CreaturePrefab:DropChance:DropQuantity1:DropQuantity2. So, if you want greydwarfs to have a 10% chance to drop the Herbal Remedy for example, go to [Herbal Remedy] and on Drops from, put Greydwarf:0.1:1. Note that the second drop quantity don't need to be filled. If you fill it like Greydwarf:0.1:1:2, means that greydwarfs have a 10% chance of dropping 1 or 2 herbal remedies;

  • If you use CLLC, depending on how you configure it, Valheim Cuisine's droppables can "break" the game. Bloodmoon Stew, for example, has a 1% chance of dropping 1 from cultists (0.01:1 in the config file). It's a rare drop and it's designed to be that way. When using CLLC, that chance may increase and almost every cultist you kill will drop it. So either decrease the chance (set it to 0.001:1 for example) or remove the drop possibility (set it to 0:0 or erase it). Checkout the google docs file to see which items drops from what (it's at the bottom on the "Droppables" chart);

  • For the mod to work properly, you SHOULD use Recipe Description Expansion, because Valheim's Cuisine have some "flavor texts", thus longer descriptions. It's not necessary to use it, but it's highly recommended;

  • The item Jörmungandr Stew displays a 0% reduction of stamina used while swimming, while it should display -25%. The item is not broke, only the display is wrong;

  • Eldhrímnir have no visual effects compared to the conventional cauldron. This will remain until I fix it;

  • To simulate long shelf life of fermented foods (except for skyr, which is dairy), their stack has been significantly raised;

  • The quality of the translations (other than the original english and the brazilian portuguese one) are not my responsability. If you think you can do better, send me your version of it (instructions on "Available Translations" topic);

Updating (manual)

  • Delete previous version of the ValheimCuisine.dll AND XutzBR.ValheimCuisine.cfg, as well as files with the prefix VC_ inside config/wackyDatabase/Effects folder (if you have them) and the files Piece_fermenter.yml, Piece_piece_cookingstation_iron.yml and Piece_piece_oven.yml inside config/wackyDatabase/Pieces folder (or edit them and remove the mod's references, if you use them for semething else) and install the newest version normally.
