In Project Zomboid, players can make several cooking recipes provided they have the right skill level, tools, or have read a particular recipe magazine.

If players have everything they need, they will need to start by preparing the food by combining it with specific cookware. After this step, players can begin cooking or adding ingredients if the recipe requires them.

To add ingredients to a recipe, players can use the cooking section of the crafting menu. Under this menu, players can see an option shown below called add an ingredient.
