Cooking Mini Game Tips
Tips For Cracking Eggs
Wait For Red Sparkles Then Press L1 + R1 Simultaneously
You have to tilt the L + R joysticks very gently when cracking eggs. Slowly tilt the joysticks then when the red aura & sparkles appear, press L1 + R1 simultaneously to crack the egg.
Tips For Salt & Pepper Shakers
Pull Stick Down When Circle Closes In
Try to pull the stick down as close to the circle as you can. This movement alternates between the L & R joysticks. If you are too fast you won't shake enough salt or pepper and if you move too slow, you'll lose the mini game.
Tips To Flambé
Rotate L Until Red Sparkles Appear, Then Tilt R Down
When flambéing, rotate the L joystick slowly until the red ribbons and sparkles appear. When they do, immediately pull down the R button to get an Excellent rating in the mini game.
Tips In Chopping Ingredients
Cut Ingredients With L & Get Next One With R
Speed is your best friend in this mini game. Quickly chop the ingredients by pulling the L joystick up & down then as soon as you're finished, pull the R joystick down to get the next ingredient.
Equip Gourmand's Ring To Easily Get Excellent Rating
Before you start cooking, be sure to equip the Gourmand's Ring. This gives you the Chef Extraordinaire ability which makes it easier for you to get an Excellent rating when cooking a dish.Check Out All Accessories List Here!
Meat dishes are not that difficult to cook. They boost your HP & Strength stats more than other dishes so it's best to cook & eat them before facing a crowd of enemies or a big boss.
Desserts focus on boosting your Magic & MP statistics. It can be difficult to prepare these dishes so make sure you have a lot of ingredients plus equip the Gourmand's Ring.
