Breath of the Wild tips and tricks

Food and elixirs

Index of Tips and Tricks  •  Complete Walkthrough


General info on food and elixirs

Food: Includes fruits, mushrooms, herbs, vegetable, flowers, meat, fish, seafood, eggs, starches, spices, fairies.
Elixirs: Include pieces of monsters, insects (beetles, darners, butterflies, crickets), lizards, frogs
All combinations with materials other than those mentioned lead to dubious food. Same thing when combining materials from these two categories.
If you combine two materials having different effects (a zapshroom and a mighty carp for example), the effects are canceled and you get a recipe which only restores hearts (if the recipe is successful).
The quantity of materials has an impact on the quantity of restored life, power of the effect, and duration of the effect.

General info on recipes - for the professionals of the cooking ^^

Here are the general recipes that you can cook for most effects :   (1+ = at least 1   / opt = optionally)
My crazy objective is to list every recipe which creates different pics, thanks for your help!

Elixirs: 1+ piece of monster + 1+ insect/lizard/frog. The rarer the piece of monster is, the better/longer the effect is. Dragon materials, particularly shards of horns, boost the duration of elixirs.
