Unlike most Harvest Moon franchises, you don't need a particular recipe to cook food or make a drink in Harvest Moon: Innocent Life (IL). All you need to do is watch the Cooking Life channel to learn about cooking from Dorothy Grimley via TV inside your room once a week.

Even so, there are some dishes that have requirements if you want to be able to cook them. And keep in mind, the result of food or drink you make is random. But don't worry it can get better over time.
