The cooking skill is unlocked after completing the “Riku and Manana’s Specialties” quest from the main storyline. Once unlocked, you will be able to cook in any Rest Spot with a cooking mark. To cook, simply head to a Resting Spot with a cooking mark and select “Cooking” from the various options available. Here, you will be able to make the recipe chosen using Nopon Coins or the ingredients required for it. However, it’s recommended not to use Nopon Coins for cooking different recipes as it is a valuable resource that is not easy to obtain.
