Genshin Impact: Best Recipes to Cook

Quick Links

In Genshin Impact, food is incredibly important to heal, boost the party, restore stamina, and more. If players are looking to get the most bang for their buck when cooking, there are some recipes that do quite a lot with very little. Here are the top recipes to cook in Genshin Impact.

Best Healing Foods

In order to be one of the best healing foods, players need to be able to not only access the ingredients easily, but it also needs to have as few of them as possible. Based on this, the top favorite healing recipes are:

Genshin-Impact-Best-Food-3

Mushroom Pizza

  • Restores 26/28/30% of Max HP to the selected character. Regenerates 450/620/790 HP every 5s for 30s.
  • Recipe: 4 Mushroom, 3 Flour, 2 Cabbage, 1 Cheese
  • Recipe Location: A Precious Chest in Stormterror’s Lair, right above the “o” in “terror” on the map or Food From Afar Quest

Mushrooms grow all over the place on the map of Teyvat, which means players probably have a good number of them already in their inventory. The other three ingredients, cabbage, flour, and cheese, can all be purchased directly or processed out of ingredients that can be purchased directly. This means that players can make tons of these; making them with Jean not only helps to increase the amount of food made, but also can create a special version of this dish: Invigorating Pizza. This version of the pizza restores 34% of Max HP and regenerates 980 HP every 5 seconds for 30 seconds.

Sweet Madame

  • Restores 20/22/24% of Max HP and an additional 900/1,200/1,500 HP to the target character.
  • Recipe: 2 Fowl, 2 Sweet Flower
  • Recipe Location: Recipe available as soon as cooking is unlocked.

It’s hard to think of Genshin Impact foods without thinking about the Sweet Madame. It’s used in several quests and is also one of several foods that miHoYo released official Teyvat recipes for so players can cook the Genshin treat in real life. It only needs 2 fowl, which players can get from killing any birds on the map (usually with a bow user) and 2 Sweet Flowers, which spawn almost everywhere on the map.

Honorable Mentions

  • Mondstadt Hashbrowns – Restores 30/32/34% of Max HP and an additional 600/1,250/1,900 HP to the target character. 2 Pinecone, 1 Potato, 1 Jam
  • Black-Back Perch Stew – Restores 26/28/30% of Max HP and regenerates 450/620/790 HP every 5 seconds for 30 seconds for the selected character. 3 Fish, 1 Jueyun Chili, 1 Salt, 1 Violetgrass
  • Universal Peace – Restores 30/32/34% of Max HP and an additional 600/1,250/1,900 HP to the target character. 4 Rice, 2 Lotus Head, 2 Carrot, 2 Berry

Best Stamina Recovery or Stamina Boosting Foods

Genshin-Impact-Best-Food-4

There are foods in Genshin Impact that both replace lost stamina and lessen the amount of stamina while doing a certain activity. Here are the best ones that Mora can buy.

Barbatos Ratatouille

  • Decreases Stamina depleted by gliding and sprinting for all party members 15/20/25% for 900 seconds.
  • Recipe: 4 Carrot, 4 Potato, 4 Onion
  • Recipe Location: Talk to Vind at Stormbearer Point

This recipe is a must-have for any long gliding trip that players plan to go on. Potatoes and onions can easily be purchased, and players can grow loads of carrots at their Serenitea Pots.

Sticky Honey Roast

  • Decreases Stamina depleted by climbing and sprinting for all party members by 15/20/25% for 900 seconds.
  • Recipe: 3 Raw Meat, 2 Carrot, 2 Sugar
  • Recipe Location: Master’s Day Off story quest or Dawn Winery commission Food Delivery

Unlike the Barbatos Ratatouille, the Stick Honey Roast helps players use less stamina while climbing. This is a great tool early game before players have had the chance to upgrade their stamina.

Cold Noodles with Mountain Delicacies

  • Restores 80 Stamina with a 300-second cooldown.
  • Recipe: 3 Mushroom, 2 Raw Meat, 2 Flour
  • Recipe Location: Purchase from Ms. Bai for 2,500 Mora.​​​​​​

The most stamina a player can replace in an instant with food is 80, and the Cold Noodles with Mountain Delicacies is the best way to get it. The ingredients are very basic and the recipe is cheap to purchase.

Best Revival Foods

Genshin-Impact-Best-Food-2

Teyvat Fried Egg

  • Revives and restores 50/100/150 HP to the target fallen character with a 120-second cooldown.
  • Recipe: 1 Bird Egg
  • Recipe Location: Recipe available as soon as cooking is unlocked.

Considering that bird eggs in Genshin Impact spawn in tons of trees all over the map, one egg is a small price to pay to revive a character. This is the easiest thing to make, and players can also purchase them from several vendors.

Best DEF Boosting Foods

Genshin-Impact-Best-Food-5

Defensive foods can work one of two ways; they can either boost the characters’ defense directly or they can boost the shields of characters. Since there are several Genshin Impact characters with shields, like Noelle, there are both kinds listed in here.

Lotus Flower Crisp

  • Increases the party’s defense by 165/200/235 for 300 seconds.
  • Recipe: 4 Almond, 2 Flour, 2 Butter, 1 Sugar
  • Recipe Location: Get from Ms. Yu after reaching Reputation Level 4 in Liyue

The Lotus Flower Crisp is great because players can purchase all the ingredients needed to make it. Almonds, Flour, Butter, and Sugar can all be purchased in Liyue Harbor, Mondstadt City, and in Inazuma’s main city.

Moon Pie

  • Moon Pie increases all party members’ Shield Strength by 25/30/35% and defense by 165/200/235 for 300 seconds.
  • Recipe: 4 Raw Meat, 4 Bird Egg, 3 Butter, 2 Flour
  • Recipe Location: From Hertha for reaching Reputation Level 7 in the historical city of Mondstadt

Moon Pie is a difficult recipe to get, but once players have it, it can be made with ingredients they probably have laying around. This massive boost to shields is perfect for the teams built around having shields up as often as possible.

Fisherman’s Toast

  • Increases the party’s defense by 88/107/126 for 300 seconds.
  • Recipe: 3 Flour, 2 Tomato, 1 Onion, 1 Milk
  • Recipe Location: Recipe available as soon as cooking is unlocked.

Not only are all of the foods needed to make Toast available for purchase, but this recipe is also available to purchase already made from several vendors around Teyvat. Players can buy pre-made Toasts from Chef Mao in Liyue, Sara in Mondstadt, and Shimura Kanbei in Inazuma.

Best Offensive Buff Foods

Genshin-Impact-Best-Food-1

Offensive foods are those that give buffs to attack power and Critical rates. These foods can help give players that little edge they may need to defeat difficult enemies and survive to battle again.

Adeptus’ Temptation

  • Increases the party’s Attack by 260/316/372 and Critical Rate by 8/10/12% for 300 seconds.
  • Recipe: 4 Ham, 3 Crab, 3 Shrimp Meat, 3 Matsutake
  • Recipe Location: In a Chest on the floating island above Qingyun Peak or the Nine Pillars of Peace quest

There is no beating this recipe. It’s the only five-star recipe currently in the game. Although it’s a little hard to get the recipe itself, the ingredients are all ones that can be purchased. The Ham can either be purchased or Genshin Impact players can process this food with raw meat and salt. And the effects of consuming this food are extremely high; players can boost everyone’s attack power by a massive amount. Coupled with the critical rate increase, the Adeptus’ Temptation cannot be beat.

Genshin Impact is available for mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5.
