How Roots of Pasha Cooking Works

Cooking is a simple process, simply requiring the right cooking area and tools. Initially, you’ll only be able to cook a basic set of recipes inside the building north of the plaza, by the fire near Tare. It’s possible to have Croll make you a house, which comes furnished with its own cooking area.

How to Unlock New Cooking Recipes in Roots of Pasha

There are a few ways to unlock more cooking recipes. Once you have your own house, you can buy cooking utensils from Tare that unlock new recipes. More utensils become available after completing specific Ideas or upgrading your house. 2 recipes also unlock after gifting the other tribes items, with both being required to complete some Prophecies.

Early on, you’ll only have access to a limited amount of stamina. Because of this, it’s better to make simple food rather than more complicated ones that restore more stamina than your maximum. Compote is a solid one early on, only requiring fruit dropped from trees. Mix Salad is another quick and easy recipe, requiring 3 of any harvested crop.

Once you reach the midgame, there are a few more simple recipes that restore more stamina and give useful buffs. Caught fish (along with Oregano) can be used to make Mediterranean Grilled Fish, which also gives a buff to fishing. For miners, there’s Locro. It only requires 1 Garbanzo and Tomato, restores a lot of stamina, and gives a boost to mining ores for a while.
