In Rune Factory 4 Special, you can’t just build a kitchen and start making dishes. To cook, you will need to unlock a license. This can be a confusing process, especially for players who are used to other farming sims.

How do I unlock cooking in Rune Factory 4 Special?

To cook, you will need to unlock the ez cooking license using prince or princess points at the Order Symbol. This will allow you to make recipes with simple tools and will cost you 100 points. When you are ready to make more advanced recipes, you will need to go back to the Order Symbol and spend 500 points.
