It’s also worth noting that you can cook by setting fire to the environment, but don’t expect to be rustling up a five-star dinner. You’ll need to experiment to see what you can make and how that boosts Link; A truffle, for example, will temporarily increase your maximum hearts, or creating a Chilly elixir will make you resistant to heat for a short period of time.
When you use an ingredient that contains a buff, it will have a prefix; Chilly, Energizing, Enduring, Electron, Fireproof, Hasty, Hearty, Mighty, Sneaky, Spicy and Tough. But you can combine the same ingredient to stack the buff, so throwing two chilies into a pot for a Spicy meal will make your resistance to cold longer lasting.

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, crafting elixirs is identical to cooking food. All you’ve got to do is hold the essential ingredients, and drop them in a metal bowl sizzling over an open flame.
“ An elixir is a drink that provides all kinds of beneficial effects that help Link battle against the elements, and survive in the wild. Unlike food, elixirs specialize in bestowing effects rather than restoring health.
It is important to take a look at the prefix of the critter ingredient, to produce the elixir with the effect you desire. Prefixes like ‘cold’ and ‘electric’ yield the ‘chilly’ and ‘electron’ effects respectively.
All the prefixes in the game are pretty straightforward, so producing the elixir with the effect you want is simple. The cooling effect of this elixir is very useful when exploring the desert and other regions with high temperatures.
This is useful against attacks from electrical enemies, lightning rods, and shock arrows. It is noteworthy that this elixir only grants resistance from electricity, and not total immunity.
The more, and the higher the quality of ingredients used to craft this elixir, the more it replenishes the stamina wheel. It provides protection from combustion, which is an inevitable result of immersing oneself in volcanic temperatures unprotected.
The Flame Guard effect of this elixir is needed when exploring Death Mountain. This greatly helps to cover distances in the shortest amount of time and make quick escapes from enemies.
The additional heart containers provided by this elixir increases total health for a short duration. The mid-level stealth effect bestowed by this elixir calms the nerves and silences footfalls, which reduces the chance of being detected by monsters and animals while sneaking around them.
The warming effect of this elixir is needed when exploring cold areas such as mountains, tundras, frosty terrains, and other high-altitude regions. The more and the higher the quality of ingredients used to craft this elixir, the more it replenishes the heart containers.
As long as you use the two types of essential components in crafting elixirs, you are pretty much assured successful results. Depending on the number and quality of the ingredients you use, you can significantly extend the duration of the elixirs you make.
By adding some foodstuff along with the two types of essential ingredients, you can even produce additive buffs such as healing, increase in heart containers, and extension of the stamina wheel. An elixir is an item that Link can craft and consume in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
It’s traditional in Zelda games to smash pots or cut down tall grass with your sword in order to refill your heart-themed health gauge. We’ve trawled the rivers, foraged in the forest and killed a lot of critters to work out how to make the best meals and elixirs.
There’s one by the Old Man in the Great Plateau, but you’ll also find them at stables, towns and some enemy outposts throughout the game. Spicy ones will protect you from the cold, mighty ones will give you extra attack strength and energizing ones will restore your stamina, for example.
Just remember that you can only have one effect active at any one time, meaning if you eat a spicy meal straight after a mighty one, you’ll lose that attack bonus. For example, a Stella mushroom + stamina bass = energizing steamed fish dish with a stamina and health boost combo.
Watch out for that dubious food, it's certainly not nutritious If you’re looking for an item to boost a specific element of Link’s attributes, the best way to do this is to create an Elixir. They’re a great way to give you a boost during the intense boss battles in Breath of the Wild when you have full health but need some electric protection for example.
