Genshin Impact's kitchen, how it works
In Genshin Impact cooking is an essential aspect that must be mastered. You can create many dishes, each of them having a beneficial effect on the life of the group, its stamina or its attack. After collecting the ingredients needed to make a dish, you have to get to the stove to make it. It comes here in the form of a mini-game asking you to tap at the right time. Depending on the result, if the white bar is in the empty, yellow or orange part, your dish is more or less successful. The better he is, the better his bonuses are.
It is important to note that each dish can and should be mastered over time. To increase the level of mastery of a dish it is enough tostop the bar in the orange area in the center during the mini-game. The rarer a dish, the harder it is to master it. Thus a legendary dish must be made 25 times before benefiting from the mastery.
Recipes can be obtained in many ways. The most common is to buy them from restaurants in different cities. But it is also possible to obtain it by talking to certain characters, or as a quest reward.
Optimize your kitchen
Each character has passive bonuses useful in combat, but also for exploration and other Genshin Impact activities. The kitchen is no exception with certain characters very attached to their little dishes. It is therefore important to see who has the best bonuses when creating a dish to take full advantage of them.
