Prepare traditional meals from around the world in this historically-accurate cooking simulator.
This week VR developer Schell Games (I Expect You To Die, Until You Fall) unveiled Lost Recipes, a “historical cooking simulator” that tasks you with recreating popular real-world dishes from around the world. Unlike existing VR cooking games like VR Cooking Simulator or Clash of Chefs, however, this delicious-looking single-player experience has you cooking for ghosts rather than living partons.
As you progress through the game you’ll learn how to prepare traditional meals from around the world—including Ancient Greece, Song Dynasty, China, and the Yucatan Peninsula, Maya—in historically-accurate kitchensusing real-world techniques. In addition to cooking, Lost Recipes promises to improve your understanding of the geography and historyof various cultures and how they’ve affected their respective culinary techniques.
In an official press release, Schell Games offers an extensive breakdown of the many different food you can expect to tackle in Lost Recipes:
- Ancient Greece
- Mulled Wine
- Ancient Greek Barley Pita Bread
- Marinated Olives
- Steamed Whole Fish
- Dongpo Pork
- Mushrooms and Bok Choy
- Yucatan Maya
- Xec Jicama and Citrus Salad

“Cooking has the power to bring people together and we wanted to capture this experience for players in and outside of the Quest headset,” said Lost Recipes Project Director Melanie Harke, in an official release. “Putting together a recipe book is something we knew we had to do while creating Lost Recipes, and we had fun preparing some of the dishes in real life as a team. We did have to modify the recipes because some of the actual ingredients and cooking methods aren’t available anymore.”
Lost Recipes will be available for purchase on Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 for $14.99 on January 27th. For more information visit here.
