Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Cooking: Recipes, Meal Effects And Ingredients

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Cooking Screenshot

Manana can cook up a storm at any Rest Spot in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, or you can choose to spend money to order food at the many Colony Canteens. This is something that you will want to do throughout your time with Monolith Soft‘s latest sprawling JRPG on Nintendo Switch, as such meals can prove invaluable for your party’s growth.

Unsurprisingly, your recipe choices will be limited at the start of your adventure. Manana will come up with new recipes with broader status effects whenever you order a meal that your party has not eaten before at a Colony Canteen, so be sure to keep that in mind as you play.

The recipes that you will start to unlock each offer their own “Meal Effects,” which, to briefly explain, can boost the EXP, Class Points, gold and items that your party earn after defeating enemies in battle.

You can either choose to cook with ingredients or spend your Silver Nopon Coins. It doesn’t make a difference which way you choose to cook a meal, but you will find more than enough ingredients in the wild as you traverse your surroundings and topple the monsters that call the world home.

Remember that you can also scan three amiibo per day, from which you may receive a Collectible Set with ingredients which are needed for many of these recipes.

If you’re looking for more help with Xenoblade Chronicles 3, we also have guides for hunting down the game’s Unique Monsters, the amiibo rewards that you can receive, how to approach Gem Crafting, and what carries over to New Game Plus.
