Valheim Cooking Guide: How to Cook Meat
To cook meat in Valheim you need 3x Wood and 2x Stone. Of course, you need pieces of meat as well which you get from hunting animals. You also need to make a hammer at your crafting table before you can start the process of cooking meat.
Using the hammer you can build multiple types of crafting stations to cook food. Now assign the hammer to any hotkey and open up the Hammer’s crafting menu. Go to the Campfire option but make sure to have 5x Stone and 2x Wood with you. Set the station wherever you want but preferably somewhere with a lot of space.
Head back to the Hammer crafting menu and choose the Cooking station. You need 2x Wood and then place it over the Campfire. Now that your cooking station is neatly placed over the campfire you can use the Cursor to see the Cooking Station options. One of the options is to Cook Items. You will also have the option to cook specific items from your inventory.
