How to cook food in Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom?

There are two ways to cook food in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – either by roasting food over a fire or cooking food in a pot.

You’ll find roasting food over a fire is more common during the early phases of the game. To do that, all you need is to hold or drop the food close to a fire, wait for some time, and your food will be ready to consume. However, using this process to cook recipes won’t suffice.
