Cooking in Zelda is very interesting. I'm actually not that interested in saving Hyrule, the end game for me is figuring out how to make a succulent, hearty bowl of porridge.
It's actually insane the permutations allowed, almost overwhelming. So if you're looking for an extensive list of recipes to experiment with, you've come to the right place.
Because of course there's already a burgeoning wiki of Zelda recipes. There had to be.
Today I learned you can make 'Energizing Meaty Rice Balls'.
What else is possible? How about a 'Hasty Veggie Cream Soup'? Or a hearty omelette. This is off the chain.
Until I scrolled through this list I was fairly sure Link was on Paleo in the truest sense of the word. But nah, looks like the dude will eat anything he can get his hands on.
