Hey guys! As stated, a guide all about Cooking in FFXV! I’ve unlocked all recipes and food – but there’s still quite a bit of info I wanna put up here.

I’m now in the process of uploading pics and vids of the difficult recipes!
Also double / triple checking the old / brainless recipe unlocks.
I’m sure I made a typo or five (or mispaste) in there, bare with me.

  • List of all food buffs : from Ignis and Restaurants.
  • Recipes & Food unlocking :copies in-game grid, easily see what you’re missing.
  • Ingredient list (TBA) (Gotta chunk through my notes…)

FFXV Food List (Ignis & Restaurant)

This table also copies the order in which they appear in the in-game recipe list, however, it’s presented vertically. If you want to see it exactly as it is in-game, check the Recipe list.

Spoiler title

It’s very hard to format this info… but try these search terms using the box!

  • “!” filters the table to all “special” food buffs. Try it out. ! without quotes.
  • Try filtering via stats, but it’s difficult since they don’t come in the same order always…
  • IGN filters all Ignis food. RTR filters all restaurant food.
  • Try combining! “IGN ATK”, “RTR DEF”, “ATK HP”
  • “Ignis Recipe” means it will trigger Ignis to learn something from the resto. I’m sure I missed a couple of the early ones, so please chime in.

FFXV Cooking : Food List| Unlocking all Recipes & Food | Unlocking Help


Unlocking Missing Recipes : Notes, problems, etc…

Not all recipes which require a specific ingredient will trigger its unlock.
HOW you obtained the ingredient matters!

Basic Ingredient Unlock: Most, if not all, recipes are tied to when you obtain an ingredient. For many recipes, it doesn’t matter if you buy, pickup, loot from an enemy, harvest or fish – you’ll get it once you snag the “key” ingredient. Some, I feel, are triggered upon getting ALL required ingredients. These are the easy ones. Buy every ingredient once from every food NPC to get most of ’em unlocked. This should be your first step.

Only buy from NPC: Killer Tomato and Cleigne Wheat say hi. Two of the last recipes I unlocked were because I never actually bought these two from NPC’s. Yes, this is real. I’m sure there are a few more out there.

Fishing: some recipes require you to actually fish the fillets up yourself! It doesn’t matter if you bought the fillets… nope. You have to EARN them (IE Oak Smoked Devil Gar).

Harvest: Just like fishing, some recipes require only the freshest material! This has some “buggy” (or maybe intended?) limitations. I know of at least TWO recipes wherein I’m damn sure I harvested the plant before – but it only unlocked WHEN I HAD ALL THE REQUIRED INGREDIENTS in my inventory. Aegir Root, Duscaean Orange, to name two.

Observations: Like Papa Bird & Baby Bowl, just watch people eat at certain places around the world. There aren’t many of these, and I ASSUME they aren’t “strictly” time-bound. If you saw them eat, then you got it!

Cookbook: Bought from “General Store NPCs” (scroll using L1/R1). You unlock the recipe right after you buy the item.

Reading: 7 from “Orienteering” signboards, 8 from “Oric’s” journals and 2 “Beautiful Banquet” (is it the correct name?) Magazines. These were a pain to find.  Simply reading them unlocks the recipe.
