The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild best cooking recipes guide

Meal ingredient stats and locations

There are tons of ingredients to snaffled out in Hyrule; you can forage for plants, hunt for meat, and dive for fish. Not everything has the ability to add a special effect to a dish, so we're only focusing on those that do, where you can find them, their potency grade, and how long the effects last for. 

Each ingredient will be followed by a letter denoting its grade, with the weakest being E and the strongest being A, and where relevant, the number of seconds the effects last for. Add them to dishes that call for a herb or mushroom, and the resultant dish will be given the effect of the ingredient you selected.
