Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – All Crafting Recipes

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom gameplay

Much like Breath of the Wild before it, Tears of the Kingdom features a robust crafting system that allows players to utilize their environment in a plethora of creative ways. No longer limiting players’ crafting to food and medicinal items, Tears of the Kingdom‘s crafting recipes expand to include vehicles, weapons, and fusions between standard armaments and a variety of monster parts to create new, stronger, and more durable instruments of destruction. That said, even the cooking in Tears of the Kingdom greatly expands the system of its predecessor to include more than 200 recipes across every possible meal and elixir combination.

cooking is the only reliable way to regain health, especially in the early hours of the game when Link finds himself in the Sky Isles and pulled toward the Temple of Time. The same can be said for much of Tears of the Kingdom‘s adventure, with cooking meals and elixirs one of the best and most consistent ways to improve Link’s defense, stamina, or even offensive capability. Cooking is as much a core component of Tears of the Kingdom as combat, exploration, and engineering using Ultrahand, and having a guide of all the potential crafting recipes and their effects is sure to come in handy as players venture into Hyrule once again.

How Crafting Works

Crafting is essentially Tears of the Kingdom‘s version of cooking, with players needing to harvest ingredients from around Hyrule and combine them in various ways to produce either meals or elixirs with health and status-boosting effects. As a general rule, combining edible items will produce a meal, while using various insects and other creatures along with monster parts will create an elixir. In terms of how players can source the necessary ingredients for use in Crafting, there are three main ways — players can either forage for them by harvesting plants or hunting animals/creatures, buy them from vendors and shops, or defeat monsters to receive their parts as a reward. The amount of ingredients necessary for a recipe varies from meal to meal or elixir to elixir.

Once you have the necessary ingredients, find a spot that either already has a campfire and a cooking pot (such as at a Stable or in a Village) or have Link start his own campfire using one piece of wood and one flint. Alternately, Link can use a Zonai Portable Pot as a single-use item to craft a recipe, since it includes both the pot and the fire but will disappear after cooking one meal or elixir. With the fire ready, go into the inventory screen and select the items you’ll cook by pressing the button to Hold them. Note that you can hold up to five ingredients. With the items selected, approach the cooking pot and select Cook. You’ll have a meal or an elixir ready to go after a brief animation, and every new recipe is automatically stored in Link’s Cookbook.

General Tips

Occasionally Link will receive pre-made recipes from NPCs across Hyrule, but the most reliable way to discover new recipes is to cook them yourself and save them to Link’s Cookbook. Thankfully, this guide will help immensely with anyone attempting to have every recipe logged. Additionally, there are some general rules of thumb to remember when cooking:

  • Some ingredients will have different effects when cooking them directly over an open flame as opposed to in a cooking pot.
  • Combining two or more of the same ingredient will increase its effectiveness. As an example, 5 chillshrooms grant more heat resistance than 2.
  • With new recipes saving in the Cookbook, ingredients will update as well. Link can select any ingredient that’s part of a recipe and choose to Select for Recipe from the item menu, and with that item selected will only see that option return for other ingredients that are part of the same recipe.
  • Combining monster parts with food will always result in Dubious Food, which is a waste of valuable ingredients.

Ingredient Effects

While the meals themselves will restore hearts, players can use a variety of ingredient types with additional effects to provide status-boosting effects to the meals as well. Below is a list of all the ingredient adjectives and what effect each one provides.

Other Recipes

The remaining meal recipes require Link to cook specific ingredients using specific means. Some of them require other cooking methods than a campfire and Cooking Pot, while others utilize frozen ingredients. As a bonus, any food ingredient that is frozen will also provide a heat resistance effect to any recipe it’s used in.

To make any meat ingredient frozen, simply drop it on the ground in low temperatures. Both the appearance and naming of the ingredient change after freezing.
