The Cooking Festival is a special event that occurs every year on the 22nd of Spring at 10:00 PM in Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town and Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town.

When the day of the Cooking Festival arrives, Gourmet will tell you the theme of food (desserts, juices etc.) that you must try to bring, and Gourmet will judge you based on how tasty the food is. Once you make it there, talk to Gourmet and he will tell you what the theme of the year is. To start, leave the area then cook a dish and then go back to Rose Square and give the dish to Thomas. He will then ask if you want to begin.
