Master the art of post-nuclear cooking! Immerse yourself in a compelling storyline, unlock new ingredients and recipes and become the best food provider in the wastelands!

Cooking Simulator – Shelter DLC is now available on Steam at the price of $11.99 USD with a 15% launch discount!

Cooking Simulator - Shelter DLC Main Features:
  • Immersive story mode. Make use of your resourcefulness and uncommon cooking skills to find your long-lost family.
  • An underground shelter in the middle of a barren wasteland.
  • Post-apocalyptic recipes based on previously-unknown ingredients.
  • Hunting for mutant meat and growing your own mushrooms and vegetables.
  • Sandbox mode.


Use your extraordinary cooking skills to find your lost family somewhere in the wastelands. The well-preserved shelter you’ve stumbled upon after a long journey will be your new home. The underground chambers have been repurposed to serve as a kitchen, pantry and a farm while the old shed right above the entrance happens to be the perfect mutant hunting spot. The shelter’s got all the equipment a skilled chef might need - a huge grill, ovens, hotplate, stovetop, fridge and other useful utensils. It will also allow you to grow and harvest your own food. The nearby radio towers might prove useful in finding your relatives, but you won’t be able to fix them without the help of the surrounding settlements.

However, the other survivors aren’t so eager to help a complete stranger. You’ll need to earn their trust first and that’s where your cooking skills come in. Complete quests by preparing nutritious food, unlock numerous post-nuclear ingredients and master dozens of new recipes. Find your family while becoming the best food provider in the wastelands!
