There are a lot of Breath of the Wild recipes in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They can boot everything from speed, health, your ability to tolerate temperature extremes and more. BOTW recipes and the buffs they provide are basically essential as you progress.
Because Breath of the Wild recipes are so important we've gathered together every food and elixir BOTW recipe in to one handy cookbook so you don't have to. We'll explain what everything does, and the effects these recipes have to help you plan ahead with meal prep. Whatever you cook, remember that putting better ingredients in the pot, will mean better buffs.
One bit of good news, given all the potential ways you can use ingredients, is that the best combinations will always be prioritised. So you'll always get the best recipe from what you cook. What you can actually cook though depends on what you're cooking on. If you only have a campfire, jump to the roasted and frozen dishes section to see what you can make. The other recipes require a cooking pot, so don't bother trying to make those without one.
There's one important rule though" insects and monster parts make elixirs, while food and seasonings make meals. Mixing them will result in failed dishes and waste your ingredients. So always keep them separate and get cooking!
