I can't emphasize how important meals are in Sea of Stars. Forget constantly thinking of how to heal your party—just throw a decent meal, and you can replenish everyone's HP and MP in one move. Food is especially useful for long treks and boss battles. I particularly like hoarding the MP food like Chaudree, so I don't always need to be cautious of my mana!
Every food recipe in Sea of Stars & where to find them
Whether you’re doing it to complete an achievement or are simply looking to save gold by cooking your own meals instead of purchasing them from a shop, you’re going to want to gather all possible recipes in the game. Unlike most games, however, some of these recipes can’t always be gathered by normal means (such as quests and shops). So, here’s a quick guide to help.
If I’m mentioning a town, the Relic can be bought from the local Item Store! If it’s in a chest that's out of way in the main story, I’ve provided separate sections for all of them below this table to help you find them more quickly.

Chaudree (Mountain Trail)
The Chaudree recipe can be found along the Mountain Trail. This is the climb you initially go through to reach Elder Mist. It's covered by a fog near the waterfall.
Mushroom Soup (Moorlands)
The Mushroom Soup recipe is in this chest, found in a cave along the Moorlands. It's impossible to miss but does need a couple of extra steps to reach. First, exit this cave and climb to the ledges up top to discover a gigantic hole. You can jump into that.
Hearty Stew location (Flooded Graveyard)
The Hearty Stew is in a cavern you won’t miss while you’re traversing the main story. Once you climb to the very top of it, just jump down, angling your fall towards the platform on the left.
Champion's Omelette (Sacrosanct Spires)
The Champion's Omelette is inside a chest at one of the bottom floors of the Sacrosanct Spires. To reach it, you must jump into this particular hole. Climb to the above floor.
