In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you can fix your Dubious Food by transforming it into a more powerful healing meal. To unlock the secret culinary feature, though, you will have to track down an NPC hidden in Hyrule first.

Can I fix Dubious Food in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

We’ve all been there, where you are on the verge of creating a five-star culinary masterpiece in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, only for the meal to turn into purple goop instead. If you are tired of having an inventory filled with Dubious Food, you are not alone. However, the game has a special feature that lets you transform your disastrous cooking into edible meals.

To fix Dubious Food in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you need to find an NPC named Moza and complete the “The Ultimate Dish” side quest. The amateur chef can be found in Rikoka Hills, north of Kakariko Village. Moza is located at the bottom of the Rikoka Hills Well, which is accessed by using Link’s Glider. You can find the exact location of the character in the map I’ve provided below:

After heading down into the well, speak to Moza to trigger the “The Ultimate Dish” quest. To complete it, simply select some Dubious Food in your inventory and pay her five Rupees. A hilarious cutscene will play out, with the chef literally beating your inedible meal into shape with her wooden spoon. The poisonous snack will then be transformed into Monster Stew.

With the quest finished, you can visit Moza to fix your Dubious Food whenever you’d like. The special feature makes cooking much more forgiving and is a great way to obtain mid-level healing meals quickly. How much the Monster Stew heals depends on the quality of the botched ingredients you initially put in to create your spoiled meal.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. If you need Cold Resistance food, here’s how to make it.
