FFXV Cooking Recipe Locations


FFXV cooking recipes are used to prepare meals while camping. Ignis is the one in charge of feeding the entire crew – he’s the one that uses the recipes to cook up delicious things.
The food you eat when you rest will add buffs and bonuses, increasing your stats for a while. It’s important to gather as many recipes as you can, so you have more options when preparing for specific situations. In this guide, we’re going to show you Final Fantasy XV cooking recipe locations, what they’ll unlock and which buffs it applies.

There are several ways to obtain cooking recipes in Final Fantasy XV. As you upgrade Ignis’ cooking skill, more and more meals will unlock by themselves. Just keep cooking, and you’ll amass a sizeable cookbook.

You could also find them laying around. While exploring, make sure you interact with every suspicios piece of paper – it may turn out to be a recipe for a delicious meal. It’s possible we’ll be able to buy them from chefs, bartenders and waiters around the world.

cooking recipes final fantasy xv
There was a curious thing we saw in some of the gameplay footage. The party was fighting a giant monster, much like the behemoth. It had tusks. The player kept hitting the tusks until they finally fell off. When they picked them up, a new recipe which had the tusks as an ingredient was unlocked. This could also turn out to be one of the ways to get recipes – by collecting new ingredients.

Much has changed throughout the game’s development, and much is still liable to change. We can’t say much for certain at this point, but we’ll update this page every time we discover something new.

    Thanks for the guide. I noticed a few mistakes as I was following it.

    Fisherman’s Favorite Paella (not Risotto) is obtained by eating the Sea Bounty’s Risotto over at the restaurant in Galdin Quay. I don’t think it’s a quest reward from Kitty Catering. On the same note, you’d have to order the Tenebraen Berry Opera (which is unlocked after completing the Berried Memories quest) at the same restaurant in order to obtain the Memory Lane Cake recipe.

    The Beanball Croquettes recipe can be found at Alpine Stables, not at Furloch Farms. It’s posted on a wall inside a broken building past the stables, near where Arbas can be found roaming.

    Whole Wild Trevally? Not sure if that exists or not. But based on the ingredients and the effects of the dish, it seems to be identical to Grilled Wild Trevally.

    First off, great WIP guide, so far been quite helpful. I wanted to point something out though, about the Devilfin soup, it isn’t so much a situation of “catch” as it is kill, since a Coraldevil is a a suppose evolved version of the Sahagin. I first encountered one in the extra dungeons, The quest A Menace Sleeps in Crestholm, I think. I just remembered being excited that Iggy had learned a new recipeh!
    The only other thing is I have been having some difficulty in finding the Heart Cutlet on Rice’s location, and I feel the description given is just slightly inadequate to the task. I was able to find the other recipe in the Vesperpool area, I believe the Paella de Pollo, but after awhile decided to give up the search and finished the dungeons off. Now I would like to resume my search for the recipehs in the game, so and clarification of this particular dishes location would be most appreciated. Again, thank you for the work on this guide and if I ever find anything not listed (other than the cheesy pizza that I assume came from the gourmand set I downloaded the other day, and the two desserts from the Chocobo-Moogle Carnival thing), I hope it would be welcome for me to return and share. 🙂
