What's a Bitter Leaf? Do I put it in my Tea?

Horizon Forbidden West is filled with resources and materials for you to sell and craft throughout your journey in the forbidden west. These materials all have their uses—some will allow you to craft arrows, traps, or other useful items like the fast travel packs. Horizon Forbidden West adds new resources, like the food resources.

Bitter Leaf is a food resource and it is used for purchasing food from cooks in Settlements. You will need to play a few hours before coming across your first settlement with a cook, which can be found at Chainscrape. The cook here will give you a side quest, which must be completed before unlocking the ability to get food. In order to make food, you will need to supply the cooking materials and they will cook food for you which will provide various buffs for Aloy.
