Cooking is a Skill in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.


Cooking is unlocked in the second generation, after expanding the school with a Workshop, and purchasing a kitchen. Aaron/Aria can install a Kitchen by buying one from Yue's Shop on a Monday.

The Small Kitchen costs 1,000 G and can have a Knife, Frying Pan, and Pot added in.

The Large Kitchen costs 5,000 G and can hold everything the Small Kitchen can, plus an Oven, Mixer, and Steamer.

Using the kitchen levels up the Cooking Skill, even if the dish fails.

Learning Recipes

To learn recipes, Aaron/Aria must speak to Mana at the head of the class in Alvarna Academy between 9:00 AM and 11:30 AM. Mana will teach two lessons per day.

After completing a lesson, the recipes will are recorded in Aaron and Aria's recipe book, and they can reference it in the kitchen when using the right appliance. For example, the Orange Juice recipe is accessed when using the Mixer.

After selecting a recipe, switch back to the Crafting tab to see the percentage chance of cooking it correctly. This percentage is measured by comparing the protagonist's current Cooking level with the recipe's Skill level. If the Cooking Level is higher, the chance is 100%.

A recipe does not have to be selected in order to cook it, and the way the ingredients are arranged on the crafting board doesn't matter.
