Zelda: How to Cook Fried Rice, Paella and More

Cooking in Breath of the Wild is extensive, but there’s no sort of in-game system to track recipes. You can find recipes throughout Hyrule on banners and learn them from various NPCs.

Below you’ll find a guide on some of the standard ingredients for more complex recipes. For more information on all the effects, elixirs, and food in Breath of the Wild, visit the Cooking, Material, and Food page.

Below are various cooked food recipes. Please refer to the rest of the guide for information on which items can add an effect. Some of these recipes don’t include substitutions.
