May 13, 2023

Shortly after starting Legend Of Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom, you’ll be introduced to cooking, which is an essential feature of the game because the recipes you can make provide all sorts of benefits.

You’ll first learn how to roast and then how to cook. Note that there is a difference between roasting and cooking which we will explain later.

As you know, the Constructs that provide all this information, teaching you how to play the game, can be vague, and you might need additional help.

As such, if you’re struggling with cooking in Legend Of Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom, don’t hesitate to check the guide below.

How To Roast In Legend Of Zelda ToTK

We’ll first teach you how to roast, which is more accessible because all you need is an ingredient and a fire.

Now, if you can’t find a fire and you’re wondering how to start one, begin by gathering some wood and flint.

Wood is obtained by chopping trees, and if you want more details, you should refer to our How To Cut Trees guide here.

As for the flint, you can find it just lying on the ground, usually in convenient places like near wood bundles.

If you’re not that lucky, you’ll have to look for flint around breakable rocks in caves and by cliff sides.

Now that you’ve gathered at least one flint and one bundle of wood place them on the ground near each other, as shown in the image below.

You can do so if you open your inventory by pressing + on your controller, go to the materials tab, select the wood, press A, then Hold. Don’t forget to select the flint as well; press A again and then B.

Now target the area where you want to place the fire and press A.

Finally, select a metal or stone based weapon and strike (Y) the flint to start the fire.

To continue, you must open your inventory again, but this time select an ingredient like a mushroom or apple and throw it in the fire. Just do the same as you did with the wood and flint.

Note you can roast all sorts of ingredients to enhance their healing capabilities.

If you want even better benefits from your ingredients, like increased healing, you have to learn how to cook.

So, you first need to find a fire with a pot on it; it shouldn’t take too much time as they are scattered all over the open world.

You can also use a Portable Pot which can be obtained from Zonai Device Dispensers.

However, one Portable Pot will last just for one cooking recipe. Once you have some, the Portable Pots are found in the Zonai Devices tab of your inventory.

Once you have your pot, stand next to it, open your inventory, select up to five ingredients, and start cooking.

The whole process is similar to the one for the roasting.

Now that you’ve learned to cook go ahead and experiment with different ingredients to get all sorts of benefits from your meals.

Like for example, if you use one Raw Meat, one Hyliam Shroom, and one Stambulb, you’ll get an Energizing Steamed Meat which will replenish four hearts and some of your stamina.
