How to cook every one of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity recipes

Learn how to unlock every recipe and which ingredients to cook with

Cooking screen before accepting a mission. The highlighted recipe is Steamed Mushrooms and requires two Hylian Shrooms and two Hyrule Herbs to make. It grants +10% movement speed.

Like in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can use recipes and ingredients to cook delicious food in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Instead of just restoring health, each dish can give you a little boost for all characters before the start of battle. Some are small like the Steamed Meat you can unlock at the start of the game, but soon they’ll give you bonuses that could help dramatically towards the end of the game.

However, it’s not as easy as getting the recipe and leaving it at that. You’ll also need the relevant ingredients. Luckily we’ve already been preparing an Age of Calamity items guide with all of the locations for each one, so you can go on foraging expeditions for those essential foodstuffs.

Each of the Age of Calamity merchants also sell a selection of ingredients that you can use for your recipes, and some Age of Calamity quests give you ingredients as rewards. So grab an apron, wipe down that surface, sharpen those knives, and most importantly: thoroughly wash your hands. It’s time to get cooking a selection of tasty treats!

Cooking couldn’t be simpler. Once you’ve obtained the recipe, either by completing a specific mission or quest, you have the option to select a single recipe to cook when in the preparation screen for any mission or challenge.

A quest to gather items. This unlocks a recipe at the end.

Provided you have the ingredients, just select the recipe you wish to cook, and apply your choice before starting a mission or challenge. When you begin, you get the effect listed for that item.


Now you know how to cook, here are all of the known recipes in Age of Calamity, and how to unlock them.
