How to Cook in Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

There are two ways to cook in Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, both of them really similar. Both of them require you to have a campfire on the ground. It may or may not have a pot on it, though the pot does make it easier. There’s lit and unlit fires dotted all across the map, so light them if necessary with your torch. Now, go into your inventory and tab over to Materials. Highlight the ingredient you want and press X to hold it. You can then add more ingredients by highlighting them and pressing A. Once you have everything you need, press B to go back to the game. You’ll now have a prompt to drop everything you’re holding.

The next step to cook in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is to drop the ingredients either next to the fire or into the pot. I mean, you can drop it straight into the fire if you want to, but I recommend the ground close to it. If there is no pot, be sure to pick the items up before they burn. If you’ve done everything properly, you’ll mostly get the “baked” or “roasted” version of whatever you’ve put in this way. In the pot, though, you can do much more, such as create more complex dishes and even brew various potions. Feel free to play around with different ingredients; half the fun is discovering recipes by yourself.
