Cooking is one of many relaxing Graveyard Keeper side activities for players to enjoy. This guide will help players expand their cooking options.
Despite its reputation and name, Graveyard Keeper offers players more than just groundskeeping duties – there’s no shortage of mini-games, NPC quest lines, or items to study to get points for various skill-trees. One of the game’s many enjoyable pastimes is cooking. While it’s relatively unused in the base game, Graveyard Keeper‘s DLCs required to make food in bulk, so they should familiarize themselves with these systems as soon as possible.
If players want to maximize their culinary skill-trees and unlock the Chef trophy/achievement, they’ll need to track down all the food and drink recipes in the game. Some are easier to find than others, and by reading on, Graveyard Keeper players will have bellies full of food and kitchens full of knowledge.
As players begin their quest to become a master of the culinary arts, several NPCs will need to be visited.
- Horadric is the owner of ‘The Dead Horse’ tavern, and can be found behind its counter.
- Miss Chain is Horadric’s wife, and can be found near him in the tavern.
- The Lighthouse Keeper is always outside the lighthouse on the far east side of town.
- The Farmer can be found south of the cornfield near the player’s home.
- The Gypsy Baron can be found in the woods near town.
- The Woodcutter is in a different part of the woods near town.
- Dig the Homeless Man can be found in the eastern side of town.
- Clotho the Witch can be found in the center of the swamp, over the bridge left of the player’s home.
