Cooking Recipes

Fallout 76 Guide

Fallout 76 will give you a start on foods and drinks that you can cook which is a staple for surviving in the world as Bethesda has brought in hunger and thirst levels.

They deplete over time fairly steadily and not overly quick but you do need to keep on top of your character to get your well-fed / well-hydrated bonuses. Cooking food will also mean that you’ll reduce the radiation in the food you eat, plus you’ll be able to gain bonuses from cooked meals with additional effects to help you out in the world.

Much like most of the crafted items like weapons, ammo and food you are given a few basic recipes but will need to get more by finding recipes out in the wilds by finding ingredients like harvesting woods from trees or vegetables from plants. You can also find more complicated meals that you can make in containers, purchase them from merchants or just on tables sometimes in kitchens or near cooking stations. Once you have found them all you need to do is head into your inventory and read it to learn the cooking recipe that can then be used at any cooking station.
