** This Guide is currently in progress, and will continue to update as new info becomes available**
Because cooking was one of my favorite things about the first game, learning that it would be included and more accessible in Tears of the Kingdom marked it as one of my most anticipated activities while returning to Hyrule.
For anyone just as excited, below is a guide on how to cook, what recipes are available to prepare, and how to obtain new gear like the Portable Pot.
How to Cook in Tears of the Kingdom
Cooking in Tears of the Kingdom is similar to the previous Legend of Zelda title. Players will first need to find a Cooking Pot that has a fire crackling beneath it. If the fire isn’t lit, a lump of flint dropped with wood under a cold pot can be struck with a metal weapon to get the needed heat going.
After finding or setting up a Cooking Pot, players will then need to select up to Five ingredients from their inventory to toss into the pot. Each ingredient has a special property, and stacking certain items together, or using more than one of a specific option, is the key to getting optimal buffs from meals.
How to get the Portable Pot
In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, cooking is easier than ever thanks to the Portable Pot. This item is a Zonai device and taken on the road.
It is important to remember that the Portable Pot is a single use item. This means that once it’s set up in a location, it can’t be packed up and moved to a new location. Because of this, keeping several on hand, and being careful about setting up camp, will be essential to culinary success.
