As for learning this specific skill, you can meet up with Reth at the Inn, who will guide you through this skill’s Introduction quest, which helps you get acquainted with the basics and mechanics of cooking. From there, the world’s your oyster; you can improve your cooking prowess by continuously cooking using random ingredients or following a recipe.

These recipes can be unlocked in different ways, including acquiring them from Reth once you’ve gained enough experience to level up your cooking skill. You can also acquire rare recipes from Zeki, the local shopkeeper in Kilima Village, but recipes could be unlocked just by throwing random ingredients together.

Naturally, not only do you need ingredients, but you’ll need a cooking stove and other equipment before you can start cooking. Once you have the ingredients and the equipment ready, interact with the stove to bring up a mini-game where you can add ingredients to a pot, and once done, you will have successfully cooked a meal to share with friends.
