As you explore Hyrule, you’ll come across snowy areas that can quickly whittle away Link’s health if you’re not properly equipped. That’s why it’s a good idea to always carry some Cold Resistant food in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, just in case. Here’s how to make some.

How do I cook Cold Resistance meals in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

You need ingredients that provide Cold Resistance when cooked into a meal in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. These include items like Spicy Peppers or Sunshrooms. When visiting a warm area, like the Gerudo region, I always make sure to stock up on ingredients that I can cook for Cold Resistance later.

With your ingredients in hand, head to a Pot or use a Portable Pot Zonai Device. Throw the required items to make a Cold Resistant food recipe, and Link will cook the dish. You can add up to five resources. The more you put in, the longer the Cold Resistance buff will last.

What are the best Cold Resistant foods to make in Tears of the Kingdom?

I spent 40 minutes tossing different ingredients into a Pot, trying to figure out Cold Resistant food is worth it. Here’s what I recommend you craft before setting out into the snowy tundra:

  • Spicy Sauteed Peppers (12 minutes and 30 seconds of Cold Resistance): x5 Spicy Pepper.
  • Spicy Fish Skewer (12 minutes and 30 seconds of Cold Resistance): x5 Sizzlefin Trout.
  • Spicy Mushroom Skewer (12 minutes and 30 seconds of Cold Resistance): x5 Sunshroom.

You can also create a Spicy Elixir at a Pot, which provides 11 minutes and 10 seconds of Cold Resistance when using four Summerwing Butterflies and a Monster Part.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch right now.
