  1. Hi Xaine. Could you please make the text a bit darker? My eyes aren’t the best anymore and it’s not easy to read for me the way it currently is.

    1. Xaine

      Sorry it took me what i now see is a month, but i found where to sort it now, so every table created should now be a thicker font

  2. Amazing work, but…This has put me off the whole cooking/farming thing, which is a shame as i was really looking forward to it. The have to increase all tier recipe payouts by 2000% to even make it worth all the headaches. ?

    1. that is exactly how I feel, I just got the nutrient processor and was excited to see what I ca make but when I saw the recipes my excitement turned to dread… no way im going to even try to find some of these things, plus take the insane measures to get them. i have never even seen 99% of them lol.

  3. Cooking is absolutely a fascinating aspect of crafting for them to add into the game, but it does need some more time in the development oven before it’s cooked all the way through.

    The list says you make Tangy Cheese with Cream only. Cream only makes Churned Butter. Anyone know what the missing ingredient is?

    1. Xaine

      Thank you for pointing this out, I believe it is a bug/oversight in the coding, 1 recipe with 2 outputs, I expect it will be patched at some point

  5. Xaine, would you mind adding a download link to the list? Perhaps a small chart, and maybe something similar to a pdf, so we would be able to have all of the recipes open at once, divided into the sections and categories you set, and still use a search feature? A small chart similar to the one in your video would be wonderful; idk how you have made the list, or if this would be a hassle at all; my apologies if this is a difficult request.
    Thank you

    Hi, I follow close but, seem to be missing 3, find Salty Doughnut, I’m Missing, The Stellarator. also
    Mystery Meat Pie, I’m Missing, High Fibre Pie. Last one, Monstrous Honey Cake, I’m Missing, End of page. if anyone could help me find the 3 I’m missing..

      1. LadyDarkSorrow

        missing means, I haven’t unlocked them, I was hoping, could you check and give me the names of the ones I haven’t unlocked ? 573 recipes is little hard to go through only to find the 3 I still need

  7. So… I think Pie Case is Tier 3, not Tier 4. It only requires two ingredients, which are both Tier 2.

    Great job on the site and videos BTW. I wish HG would hire some folks like you to be testers for a month before they launch these things.

    1. Xaine

      Thank you for noting, I messed up on that one, I didn’t use a formula to sort them via their tier, I did it manually, so potential for a mess up is there.

      And thank you again :) glad you like the site and vids :)

  8. It’s really hard to read anything with this extra thin font. Maybe consider changing it? Can’t see a thing.

    1. Xaine

      Thank you for the feedback, currently trying to find out how to alter in table defaults, will see if i can alter the font weight for all tables

  9. What am I missing here, trying to make cheese but all I ever get with cream is butter, what’s the deal, leaving it in the cooker over night?

    1. Xaine

      Nice one! they’d adjusted the recipes in the recent update, so ill be updating the list to reflect the cheese and i think 3 others that were changed

  10. magnifіϲent issues altogether, you just received a
    new reader. Ꮃhat may you suggest in regarԁs to your put up
    thаt үou јust made some days in the past? Any positive?

  11. With patch 2.12 the Larval Core and Hypnotic Eye can be put in the Processor again (Mordite was fixed earlier). The fixed/new recipes for cheese are Wild Yeast + Cream -> Tangy Cheese, and Wild Yeast + Proto-Cream -> ProtoCheese.

    Found this list when looking for refiner recipes – nice util btw. New to this cooking stuff. What exactly does quality mean? On a wiki I found a similar list (not searchable though) and that one should how many nanites a certain recipe is. This is what I’m currently missing in this list. Is that possible or is that data not available – assuming you are datamining the NMS files.

    1. Xaine

      Heya bud, super happy to hear you like the site and it’s info :).

      By nanites, do you mean how much the recipe will give upon presenting to Cronus?

      If so, that is what the quality number is about. No recipe has an exact number of nanites it will receive from Cronus, so putting the nanite estimates seemed a little iffy. The quality value is a decimal, also viewed as a percentage from between 0.1 and 1, the higher it is, the more chance it has of giving the full 40 nanites.
      1 is the highest quality possible currently, so anything with a quality of 1 will give you the best chances.

      I’d recommend Salty Custard, it’s a super cheap and easy food to make that can be 100% farmed and has the highest quality rating.

  13. Thanks so much, Xaine! This list is awesome and very smoothly interactive. I’ve been working my way through each recipe with a focus on the hardest ones. Major props, man. :)

  14. Just a though, if you would explain each one this way, it would help with having to reverse engineer each type of ingredient
    . Pie case
    milk = cream
    cream = churned butter
    Frost crystals = glass grains
    Glass grains = refined flour
    refined flour + churned butter = pastry
    pastry = pie case

  15. Thank you so much, this must have been a bitch to put together. Although cooking isn’t really worth the effort right now, It’s still really nice to have this resource. If the bonuses like sprint boost and jet pack boost (although how food boosts your jet pack, I don’t know unless maybe it’s chili, wink wink nudge nudge) lasted longer it would be cool or if they sold for more, it would be nice. Right now it’s just a time sink but it can be fun. But really thanks a lot I have used this resource to save me a ton of time and headache.

  16. Tangy Cheese is listed as being made with 1 Cream, this is incorrect, at least currently on PS4.
    1 Cream + 1 Wild Yeast = Tangy Cheese
    1 Cream = Churned Butter
    1 Cream + ! Cream = Creamy Sauce

    1. Xaine

      Thank you for the correction, I’ll refresh the list with the current game files Asap, it appears some fixes have been added

  17. Why no mention of how much the dishes are worth?
    I get 18,800 units for 1 unit of Fiery Vegetable Stew. That seems to be worth the trouble. Would like to know what other things are worth making. So please include the item sale price in units on a column. Thanks.

    1. Xaine

      The prices, nanite amount from Chronos among a few other things have changed since this guide was made, I’ll be working on an updated version very soon.

      Previously, prices were static and very low for all dishes

  18. furtivepygmy

    Xaine, fairly new follower, but the amount of time and effort you put into your vids, website and amazing Stasis Mega Guide is admirable. Very professional! Thanks for being such a n all-around resource for NMS. F.Pygmy

  19. Theres a thing at the top of the screen hanging down that says no man’s sky x xaines arcade shop blog register and login can you please tell me how to get rid of it is covering the whole screen

  20. Seriously, dude. Amazing work. I cannot state how much I appreciate that someone put this list together.
    Peace to you, brother.

  21. Hi there! Thanks for posting this info! :) It’s come in really handy. It would be nice if you could also add the buff/effect the food gives you when consumed. I just finished cooking every single recipe on the list, then found that it doesn’t actually tell you what the buff/effect is unless you need it at the time. :/ I’m sure this is the same reason why googling what they are has yielded no results.

  22. Awesome site Xaine! Was wondering if there is a list of the stat boosts for eating the recipes cooked? Also the units from selling? Thanks!

  23. nevermind on the units…my bad lol…but still wondering about stat boosts.. thanks again!

  24. Any chance you know how to get the new Cronus title to unlock? I’ve tried top recipes and so far nothing.

      Wow, you went all out, cheers for the info. I’ll be updating the tables with game file info in the next day or 2, didn’t realise quite this many recipes were added

      1. No problem. Still need to find turtles (scooped innards), (latticed sinew), diplos (diplo chunks, giants eggs), (foraged mushrooms) to finish out my catalogue.

        1. Turtle Creature —> Scooped Innards (no farmable byproduct)

          Scooped Innards + Carbon —> Smoked Meat

          1. Burrowing Creature —> Latticed Sinew
            Latticed Sinew + Latticed Sinew —> Well Stirred Stew

            I haven’t been able to find what creature to feed to produce foraged mushrooms. Also are Diplo Chunks and Giant Eggs even in game anymore, all diplos I find give meat chunks and creature eggs.

  27. Could you upload or send me screenshots of your cooking catalogue on the game? As I’m trying to fill in the my gaps and it’s a nightmare going through each cooking product to see if I’ve done it or not! Thanks

  28. Nicholas Manuel

    Is there a Google Sheets spreadsheet of this list. I would like to print out the recipes.

    Been using your site a couple years now ( Thanks for the creation and maint. of it! Invaluable resource… ) and love your video content. I’ve been rallying Hello Games for some selfish-recognition of the amount of “Sweet Cream Dreams” and “The Stellarators” (mid- four-digit range) I’ve baked and given-away to folks at the Space Anomaly since first playing NMS ( no word back from H.G. yet, ha ). Many, many thousands of honey, cream and eggs at this point. Main reason I’m here : At some point you may want to nuke the “Bait” tab on this Cooking Recipe page, since everything just makes “Creature Pellets” as-of Companions / 3.2x, and we can no longer make advanced baits (which I kinda miss doing…made farming a bit more of a challenge, but perhaps just a slog for most).

    Keep up the great work, man! Warm winds and following seas to you and yours.

      The buffs are applied when you eat that food, so the stamina, would either pause stamina drain for a short time or fill your stamina bar for sprinting.
