The BotW recipe book

Looking to become a master chef in this open-world masterpiece? Well, we have every single one of the BotW recipes in a handy list to help you become Link Fieri

Art of Link from The Legend of Zelda jumping in the air and firing a bow and arrow with a glowing tip, surrounded by different dishes in our BotW recipe guide header.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild rejuvenated this long-running series by adding countless new mechanics and systems for you to explore, whether it’s the excellent new physics engine offering hours of messing around for any creative player, or the much-maligned weapon durability (which is actually key to the game being any good). No matter your opinion though, there’s just so much to love in this open-world Zelda.

One of the more playful additions is the cooking system. Alongside the crafting system, this offers many, many concoctions for you to discover. It’s very rare that you get given recipes, so finding them by trial and error is key to creating culinary masterpieces. Of course, some players would like to have a recipe book, and that’s what we’ve made here. Every single BotW recipe for every tasty meal.

So, bookmark this page and check back here every time Link’s tummy starts rumbling. Once you’ve had your fill, check out our BotW amiibo guide to get some in-game freebies, or our Zelda BotW map rundown to make sure you actually know where you’re going. If you need a refresher on the stars of the game, check out our BotW Zelda and BotW Link guides before the sequel comes out.

How do you cook BotW recipes?

Cooking in Breath of the Wild is simple, but not tutorialised. First, you need to find a cooking pot. If it doesn’t have a lit fire beneath it, use some sort of flame to light it (or drop some flint on the wood and use a metal weapon to light it). Once the fire’s lit, it’s time to get cooking.

Go into your inventory and choose the ingredients you want and make sure you get Link to hold them. You can hold up to five items. Once you’re holding them, exit the menu and drop them into the cooking pot. Et voila, you’re now on your way to making countless culinary creations. Bon appetit!

Every BotW recipe

Here are all the BotW recipes. Any ingredient that is non-descript (e.g. vegetable, mushroom, seafood etc.) means that you can use any type of that ingredient. Well, what are you waiting for? Get cooking.
