How to do ‘The Ultimate Recipe’ and Mimra’s dishes in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
Surely more than once because you wanted to experiment with the kitchen in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom you have ended up producing a dish that qualifies as suspicious or heavy food. Although they can be eaten, the nutritional value of these is much lower than that of any other dish cooked properly, although at least they restore something. But what if we told you that you can turn those failures into dishes that will restore a certain number of hearts? We explain how in this guide.
Side mission ”The ultimate recipe?”
This quest does not require any prerequisites to complete; By the time we set foot on the surface of Hyrule again, we could do it. As you already know, it is possible to explore the wells that are scattered throughout the kingdom, and inside them, we sometimes find treasures, weapons or resources, and other times people, like when we helped Penn to get the clinging armour.
Well, it turns out that in the well that is on the slope that overlooks the Lanayru Swamp in the Riokna Hills, there is a well that can be explored and through which if we descend we will find a cook who, more than preparing dishes, seems to be waging a fight with them. She is Mimra, and she has culinary knowledge that is capable of turning suspicious (with monster material) or heavy (with some mineral or rock) food into dishes that restore more health.
All you need to work your magic is some type of dish that falls into those two categories. If we hand it over, Mimra will turn those culinary blunders into something more pleasing to the eye, let alone the palate. Any of those dishes that restore just one heart will turn into Monster Stews capable of restoring up to four of what we have.
If you don’t know what Luminous Gems are for in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’re missing out on getting rich with some very special jewels.
Can Mimra’s dishes be sold?
Actually yes, but you will get very little benefit from doing so. The dishes that Mimra “fixes” for us have a selling price of 15 rupees, and although getting the raw materials for the cook to do her magic, she charges us for her services, as is logical. The first time she makes us an offer to convert it for 5 rupees, but later she will charge the normal rate of 10. And even if we make a profit for each meal converted, it is very little considering that she only reports 1/3 of a profit in rupees for the entire operation.
Even so, if you have given yourself to experiment several times and you have failed, you do not have to throw away those dishes or settle for only the heart that they restore. With Mimra it is possible to take advantage of them a little more. The best thing is to cook more succulent dishes ourselves, but at least know that this option exists and of course it is fun to see it “fight” on the stove.
