Bread: Cooking, Benefits, and More

Did you know that “too much” doesn’t exist in Stardew Valley? Having excess cooking ingredients like wheat flour won’t be a waste if you make bread with it. Here’s a complete guide on preparing it in Stardew Valley!

Running out of energy? This dish will back you up!

Equipping your farm with different structures like Mills can be pretty handy, especially if you like making cooked dishes. If you accidentally produced a surplus of wheat flour after making a Pink Cake or Chocolate Cake, you don’t have to sell them immediately. Instead, why don’t you create some bread with it? 

In this guide, you’ll learn how to make it and why it’s beneficial in Stardew Valley!

What is Bread?

It’s a cooked dish you can produce in your upgraded farmhouse’s kitchen or a cookout kit. But you may also get it by visiting these stores:

  • Stardrop Saloon. It costs 120g each.
  • Krobus’ Shop. You’ll randomly find five pieces of it on Saturdays with a price ranging from 50g to 500g (3.9% chance).

Additionally, consuming this good gives you additional health and energy. You can refine it too by adding some Qi Seasoning, increasing these benefits by 80%. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of it with and without the seasoning:

This dish only requires one Wheat Flour. And you’ll get its recipe from The Queen of Sauce on Summer 28, Year 1. But you may also purchase it from the Saloon for 100g.

In making better use of this item, you can manufacture other cooked dishes to triple your profit and healing effects. Remember, the Qi Seasoning is also applicable to each meal. It adds one to all buffs (except speed) and increases their duration by 50%. 

Here are some goods you can make from a single bread:

Selling Price

If you sell it, you’ll get 60g. However, tacking on some seasoning increases the price by 50%, turning its value to 90g.

A piece of bread is handy in making a shirt in the sewing machine. It also serves as an orange dye for your pots in Stardew Valley.


It’s not the ideal gift for NPCs, as most feel neutral about receiving it. Don’t even think of giving it to Harvey and Leah.
