Cooking is a new gameplay mechanic and feature in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. By using certain materials, Link can cook food to increase their effectiveness and create better food items. Food include potions such as several elixirs.

Cooking Ingredients

Cooking ingredients are materials used in cooking food. Some cooking ingredients are also potions ingredients. They can be obtained in a variety of different ways. Some ingredients such as mushrooms, herbs, and plants can be obtained while traversing Hyrule, while other ingredients can be obtained by defeating enemies. Some ingredients can be used to restore health without cooking them; however, cooking them usually increases their effectiveness to create dishes. Cooking over a pot is more effective than cooking over a campfire.
