The Art of Cooking
The Art of Cooking is a quest related to cooking in Genshin Impact. Gamers will receive this quest from NPC Lynn in Starfell Valley, Mondstadt, that requires cooking mushroom chicken skewers.
This is a tutorial mission to familiarize the player with the cooking system in the game. Let’s collect the ingredients and cook at the cooking locations. After completing the quest, the reward received is 5 bird eggs, 10 chicken meat, 5 mushrooms, 5 wheat objects and 2500 Mora.
Battle Pass Rewards
In the Battle Pass, players have a mission that requires them to cook 20 dishes per day. After completing this task will be added 360 BEP to the total process. After receiving 1000 BEP from different Battle Pass missions, you will increase a level and receive random rewards.
When mastering a total of 40 recipes, the player will receive 20 Primeval Stones from the Star Chef Achievement. Discovering the culinary culture of 3 countries in Teyvat will be a great experience. People can also purchase additional recipes from the 3 chefs or get them from side quests to complete challenges in Achievements.
Tips for collecting raw materials in Genshin Impact
Recipes are divided into categories:
- Regenerating health
- Character revival
- Stamina buff
- Attack Enhancement
- Defense Buff
Most recipes will require a combination of purchased and collected ingredients. However, each category contains several recipes, many of which offer the same benefits.
For example, Mondstadt Grilled Fish, Mora Meat, and Steak all revive a character and restore 50 to 150 health. This means that if there is no raw meat but the inventory is full of fish, the player can grill the fish, instead of cooking the steak since all recipes have the same effect.
This also means that players can not only choose to focus on ingredients that are easier to collect, but also don’t need to worry about buying more recipes, especially expensive or demanding recipes. certain reputation requirements, unless of course the player is trying to collect all of them.
Just keep in mind that if a favorite recipe involves cooking, it’s a good idea to do this often as it takes a long time to process ingredients in bulk.
