It can be so much fun to find your own methods of how to cook in Breath of the Wild. Linking together a variety of techniques and tactics is one of the biggest challenges facing this fan favourite from Nintendo. It can be quite frustrating when you are faced with a dilemma over which ingredient goes where, or what type of recipe to use for a particular dish. Fortunately Nintendo has done a fantastic job in making finding out how to cook in Wii’s new Zelda game easy.
For starters, we have found the best and quickest method of cooking in Zelda is by using ingredients found within the game itself. Link will collect ‘legendary ingredients’ as he progresses through the game and these include such culinary delights as the cooked beef known as the Cucco. There are also a great many ‘rare’ ingredients available throughout the game as well. For example, Link can find a herb called the Goron Berry in Breath of the Wild, which boosts his ability to fight against enemies and helps him recover stamina. At the same time, a rare ingredient called the Rupee is used to heal Link when he falls to ground level. At higher levels, Link can also collect the eponymous Rupees, which restore his health, among other things.
Of course, just because Link is seeking out tips on how to cook in Wii’s Zelda games doesn’t mean that he isn’t enthusiastic about eating! Indeed, he’ll often cook just to eat, so if you can defeat a boss without taking too much damage, you could cook enough to feed everybody at your party! It is important to remember however, that Link’s appetite is very fickle. If he becomes too hungry he will automatically run off to eat something else.
One of the main ingredients you will find early on in the game is the Goron Spice. This is used to make Goron Point, which is essentially a special type of bait that allows Link to catch fish in Breath of the Wild. There are a number of other Elixirs that Link can find as well. These include the Hylian Bells, which increase the amount of hearts that Link has, the Giant Stem, which increase the hearts when used, and finally, the Heartleaf, which restores a portion of the hearts when eaten. When cooking these dishes, remember that the more hearts you restore, the higher your experience points are going to be at the end of the game.
The main dish for Link to prepare is, of course, the Meat Dish. The dishes you can create are mostly simple recipes that require a pot, a cutting board, ingredients such as an onion and some green pepper, and a pot to cook the dishes in. After this, you just need to wait for the dishes to be cooked and Link will then be rewarded with a heart. After all of this is done, you should stand back and look at the timer to see how much time is left before the fish exits the pot. Using the stamina wheel to help you with this, Link will notice that by using the pots and pans on his side, he can cook more dishes at one time.
After you have finished cooking all of the dishes, you will need to rest. Link must rest after each food type is cooked so he can regroup and recharge. However, while he is resting, you can continue to cook more of the same food. The only requirement is that you use torches to light your way. In addition, you should avoid talking to the Gorons to prevent them from following you into an accident.
If you have all of the necessary ingredients, you will be on your way to Link’s cave. Inside of this cave, there are a few torches that can be used as well as some elixir bottles that will help restore the health of your Link. Once you have gotten all of these items, you will be ready to cook your way through Hyrule once again. Link’s sword, the Hook, is the main weapon you will need. The rest of your weapons such as the Gorons’ clubs and hearts will greatly affect the game’s progress. To cook more of the various foods, you will need to acquire new equipment such as the Zora pots and the Biggoron’s stone.
When you have all of these materials, you can head into Hyrule and start cooking your favorite dishes. Some of the best recipes include the Heart Seed, which restore your life, and the Power Flower, which help to fight against Ganon. If you are just looking for a place to relax, you can head to Lake Hylia to fish for some fish. The fishing spots here are quite diverse, which means that you can catch the fish that you want. It is also a great place for Link to practice his skills of archery by shooting at targets that are thrown from a distance. As you can see, cooking in Breath of the Wild is a fun experience that can be very beneficial to your future games.
