This Retreat to Enen Cooking Guide will tell you how Cooking works, how to unlock it, and the best Food you can Cook in Retreat to Enen!

How Retreat to Enen Cooking Works

There are three ways you can do Retreat to Enen Cooking:

 

  1. Putting Raw Meat or Oysters on a Fire Pit or Furnace
  2. Cooking more complex recipes in a Cooking Pot
  3. Smoking Raw Meat in a Smoker

Most recipes you Cook in the Cooking Pot cannot be stored in any way aside from leaving them in the Cooking Pot -- you have to consume the Food in order to Cook something else.

There are three exceptions to this rule: Antiseptic, Antivenom, and Spirit Tonic. They can be put in Tonic Bottles, but you'll have to Craft the bottles before you can do that.

 
 

How to Unlock Cooking in Retreat to Enen

You can unlock Cooking in Retreat to Enen by Crafting a Fire Pit and placing it. That will give you the ability to Cook both Small Raw Meat and Large Raw Meat. Crafting a Cooking Pot will give you access to a much wider range of recipes.

The final Cooking Station is the Smoker, but you won't have access to it right away -- you'll have to Meditate at the first Ruins. You can find out how to do that in our Retreat to Enen Walkthrough and Story Guide!

 
 

Best Food to Cook in Retreat to Enen

Best Food to Cook in Retreat to Enen

The best food to Cook in Retreat to Enen is the Meat Stew. Throw 1 Large Raw Meat, 1 Potato, and 2 Mushrooms into a Cooking Pot and you'll get some great effects: +60% Health, +10% Spirit, +100% Hunger, and a complete cure for Malnutrition.

This recipe, of course, depends on you having Large Raw Meat. If you don't, your next best option is Mushroom Soup -- this requires only 2 Potatoes and 2 Mushrooms in a Cooking Pot and will give you +40% Health, +10% Spirit, +40% Hunger, and a cure for the Malnutrition affliction.

Personally, however, I prefer to use Large Smoked Meat. This doesn't go bad for a very long time and is a great way to ensure a steady supply of Food that doesn't spoil easily.
