Bear and Breakfast – An Easy Food Reference

A quick reference guide for the easiest, money-saving recipes.

Guide to Recipes

Short Intro

I’ve played far too much of this game since it came out, and the main frustrations I’ve had have been maintaining good food and fuel levels (and nails, but hopefully that’ll be fixed sooner rather than later).

This is less of a guide, and more of a reference sheet to pull up so you can see what recipes can be made with limited/no fuel or shop-only items. This should hopefully help you save on money.

Notes and Closing

I will mention that you can hire staff later in the game to cook for you without the use of ingredients.

While it saves a ton of hassle, it can also be pretty expensive, which is part of why I made this whole reference.

Also, there are some recipes that produce 2 meals per recipe. As far as I know, there’s no obvious way to check which are without testing each of them, but let me know!

I hope this helps some people save some money/headaches in their playthroughs.

  1. Is anyone else running into an issue with not being able to actually click the cook button?? I’ve verified I have all ingredients correct and cards are correct but I simply cannot press cook for some reason. It worked in the past and I was able to cook a few things. Now whenever I try it won’t work…. Tried restarting, different recipes… everything.

  2. Great reference guide. I just took screenshots of the recipes and made a “cookbook” this is SO much better. Thanks!

  3. It seems that the teas and drinks are two for ones. I have not found foods that two for one yet.

  4. This is perfect. And I found it exactly when I got frustrated by all the people complaining I didn’t have enough food variety. Thank you for posting!
