In Resident Evil Village, there are 6 cooking ingredients and 6 cooking recipes and in this guide, we will tell you the locations of all cooking Ingredients so that you can make every dish that is available in Resident Evil Village.
All Resident Evil Village Cooking Ingredients Location
After you get the second Winged Key part and meet the Duke during the story, cooking will be unlocked. After that at Duke Merchant’s Shop, you will be able to cook dishes. During the story, you will get permanent boosts by the cooking recipes, that carry over to New Game+. You will get more health and also run faster by using these cooking recipes, which is very useful for the hardest difficulty mode. When you get the option for cooking, all cooking recipes will be unlocked right away. However, you can’t find some of the ingredients until later in the story. Don’t Sell cooking ingredients because they are limited. You can only get one special high-quality ingredient per playthrough, and very few animals spawn during a playthrough.
