Top 5 Tears of the Kingdom recipes you may not have tried yet

If you’re thinking of throwing a Tears of the Kingdom-themed birthday party (and why wouldn’t you?), here’s your menu – just don’t cook everything in one pot.

I’m always struck with how gorgeous the meal sprites look in Tears of the Kingdom, and would almost be tempted to recreate them in real life if it wasn’t for the unfortunate fact that I despise cooking. Why can’t I just throw five things in a pot and be rewarded with a Michelin-level dish?

Even in the world of Zelda I am an uncreative chef, usually opting to batch-cook as much Copious Simmered Fruit as I can carry before setting off for a long day of ignoring the main quest and throwing Koroks off of cliffs. But Link is a growing boy, and Ganon isn’t going to be defeated with an iron deficiency. Change things up with these five lesser-known recipes!

5. Cheesy Curry

Tears of the Kingdom Cheesy Curry recipe

Hateno Cheese is truly my favourite new food item in Tears of the Kingdom, and can be added to a variety of dishes for a fun twist on Hylian staples. This meal in particular reminds me of the end of a Great British Night Out – it is a fact universally known that cheese, rice and curry sauce are all you need to restore full health after an evening at the pub.

4. Porgy Meuniere

Tears of the Kingdom Porgy Menuiere recipe.

All of Link’s dishes deserve to be this fancy. Just like in Breath of the Wild, all you need to do is toss in any type of Porgy alongside some Goat’s Butter and Tabantha Wheat (that endlessly useful ingredient that I can only ever seem to find in Rito Village). If you want to make the most of your Porgy’s buff, try throwing in a Dragon’s Horn!

3. Hylian Tomato Pizza

Tears of the Kingdom Hylian Tomato Pizza recipe

When was anyone going to tell me that pizza was invented?! At the very least, it should have made the newspapers. All you need for this rustic-looking fakeaway is Tabantha Wheat, Hylian Tomato and Hateno Cheese. I can only assume that Goron Pepperoni will be a DLC-exclusive.

2. Creamy Heart Soup

Tears of the Kingdom Creamy Heart Soup recipe

This odd soup requires a pretty unintuitive recipe – namely by using a Hydromelon, a Voltfruit, Fresh Milk and either kind of Hearty Radish. Given that the cooking mechanic in Tears of the Kingdom tends to punish dishes that use two or more buff items, this combination of ingredients is not something I would have tried of my own accord. But just look at it, it’s pink! It can’t not be good.

1. Dark Cake

Tears of the Kingdom Dark Cake recipe

Even swordsmen need dessert sometimes, and a cooler cake cannot be found in Tears of the Kingdom. Just like any other cake you’ll need Cane Sugar, Tabantha Wheat and Goat’s Butter, along with a trusty Dark Clump (if you’re running low on these, try seeking out some Evermeans in the Depths, or go hang out with the Bargainer Statue in Lookout Landing).

If your cooking is glowing blue, that’s a sure sign something incredibly right has happened. I’m not sure this dish can be recreated in a safe and edible manner, but I’d love to be proven wrong. If you think you’ve cracked it, post pics to our Discord or it didn’t happen.
