Where To Learn the Recipe
Cooking inspiration is something that happens automatically as you make dishes with different ingredients. Once you’ve cooked with an ingredient a certain number of times, you can unlock a new recipe that uses the same item!
To learn the recipe for Baked Yam, you need to cook with the following ingredients:
|Ingredients||Number of dishes you need to cook|
The quality of the ingredients you use can reduce the number of times you need to cook with that item. You can check the quality by looking at how many stars the ingredient has.
For each additional star that an ingredient has, the number of times you need to cook with it decreases by a factor of 1.
If a recipe states that you have to cook with Yam 2 times to unlock it, you can make any dish with 1-star Yams twice. But if you have 2-star Yams, you only need to cook with them once.
You can also learn the recipe for Baked Yam by watching TV and clicking on the Tasty Time TV Show channel. It’s the dish featured in the fifth episode.
The Tasty Time TV Show airs once a week on Tuesdays. Don’t worry if you miss the recipe, because they do repeat after the 12th and final regular episode. Just keep checking!
The equipment needed to make Baked Yam can be bought from Jeff at the General Store.
The downside is that Jeff sells his kitchen equipment one by one, in 10-day intervals after you buy the first of Gotts’ house remodeling upgrades.
This means that you can only access the next piece of equipment 10 days after the previous one becomes available for purchase.

How To Sell Baked Yams
Any dishes made in your kitchen can’t be shipped through Zack and the Shipping Bin. However, you can start selling food to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.
To sell a dish to Huang, stand in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.
Huang will then offer you a price, which you can actually reject for a chance at getting him to bid higher.
The price range for Baked Yam is anywhere between 68 G and 77 G.
If Huang offers you 74 G for the item, for example, you can turn him down and try again to get a higher price.
Keep in mind that his bids will never go lower or higher than this defined range, so 77 G is the maximum price you can get for selling Baked Yam.
