Tales of Vesperia Cooking and Recipe Guide: where to find every recipe in the Definitive Edition

Cooking is a common component of pretty much every game in the 'Tales' series, and Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition is no exception. Why spend so much gald on expensive gels and potions when you can cook food on the cheap with a little bit of practice? Not only that, but cooking can even give useful buffs when heading into the next battle. Several side events and titles are tied into the acquisition and mastering of cooking recipes, so it's in your best interest to gather up the recipes and cook often. 

Note that if you used the three Recipe Sets from the 'Adventurer Starter Pack' DLC, then the only recipes you'll be missing will be the ones created by Flynn and Patty. These are Steak, Beef Stew, Skewers, and Fisherman's Hot Pot.  You'll also need to complete a new sidequest involving Patty in order to get the Seafood Stew recipe. This is important because you'll need to still acquire all the recipes in order for the Wonder Chef to give you the invitation to the cooking competition at the same time he would normally give you the Mabo Curry recipe. 

Don't forget we have more pages to help with Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition. We've got a full list of the Fell Arms - the best weapons in the game, plus a complete Secret Missions Guide. Be sure to grab the DLC costumes for a chance to cosplay as some Namco classics, too. We've also got a full list of Costumes and other titles, as well as where to find the Giganto monsters.

Tales of Vesperia Cooking Titles List

Once you get the Mabo Curry recipe from the Wonder Chef, you'll be able to enter the cooking competition at the Bistro Black Hole in Dahngrest. Before entering, however, make sure to master every recipe with the character you want to have enter. Getting absolutely 100% mastery on every recipe isn't strictly necessary, but it's a way to guarantee that you come out on top. You only need one character to participate in the competition. Once victorious, you'll earn the following Titles for the entire crew:

Yuri - Commoner Chef

Estelle - Cordon Bleu

Karol - Guild Chef

Rita - Chemical Chef

Raven - Weekend Chef

Judith - Chef Mom

Patty - Ultimate Chef

Flynn - Mysterious Chef

In addition to the list, there's a short additional sidequest involving cooking with Patty. Once you have cooked 600 times and have had Patty master three recipes, talk to the nervous man in from of the shop in Nordopolica. And then late in the game, once Flynn has joined up for the final dungeon, head to the inn in Zaphias below Yuri's house. In here, you'll earn the costume title Amazing Chef for Patty.
