Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Ingredient Chart & Cooking Guide (TotK)

Get cooking with Link.

Cooking is important to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. During my attempts at a four-heart run, I quickly learned I needed to rely on stat-boosting items to survive. What ingredients you use will determine what type of dish or elixir you get. This makes knowing what you throw in the pot incredibly helpful; otherwise, you'll end up with many dubious meals like me.

How to make Dishes in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK)

Cooking dishes is done with edible food. Most recipes use food that restores hearts, but this is not always true. This includes herbs, meat, fruit, mushrooms, and more. You can combine these to cook up various dishes that give different buffs.

How to make Elixirs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (TotK)

Elixirs are typically made from small animals, like frogs, lizards, and bugs. These must be combined with monster parts to bring out their effects. You still cook these in a cooking pot, but you will receive an elixir instead of a cooked dish. Some items aren't intended to be cooked but instead are fused with arrows and items.
