Chef Aurie Taamu, Vol. 1
Chef Aurie Taamu, Vol. 1, is an item in Breath of the Wild, found in Ashai's house within Gerudo Town. The book will give basic information such as how to cook meals with special effects, how to make elixirs, and what fairies can contribute to a meal.
Most ingredients can imbue their meals with some unique effects. Ingredients that have cold properties can help you resist heat. Ingredients that have heart properties can fully heal you and grant you temporary bonus vitality! There are many other effects to be found among ingredients. You just have to experiment! And don't forget! Combining ingredients with the same effect may increase the effect's strength or duration... But combining ingredients with different effects may cancel their enhancing effects out, so you must be careful. I, Aurie Taamu, am admittedly quite impatient, so I always have speed-increasing hasty foods on hand!
You can cook up an elixir by mixing a bug part and a monster part together. Elixirs can be made in pots, just like good, and with valuable ingredients, the elixir's effect will get stronger! You can also add acorns or Chickaloo tree nuts to impart your elixir with minor healing properties. However... I, Aurie Taamu, am deathly afraid of insects and would never even think of touching them. Fortunately, there are regular meal that you can cook which will produce the same effects as elixirs.
It is said that fairies truly do exist in the world, but that they will only appear before an individual with a pure soul. One theory suggest that some special kind of cooking might be possible if you used the power of a fairy... I, Aurie Taamu, have been a pure soul for over 35 years. I expect my fairy will arrive any day now...
