Cooking in Breath of the Wild
Cooking is a game mechanic in Breath of the Wild, where Link can throw up to five pieces of material into a lit Cooking Pot to create a cooked dish. Different combinations of items result in different dishes with different effects, mostly centered around healing and stats boosting.
The effects of the end dish is simply the sum of its parts. If an ingredient gives one level stat boost (e.g. cold resistance) for 30 seconds, cooking two of those ingredients together will give two levels for a minute.
