Surviving in Elden Ring is always challenging, and Cookbooks are a great find to help turn the tides in your favor. Cookbooks are Key Items that expand your crafting abilities, allowing you to make different types of ammunition and potions.
Types Of Cookbooks
There are eight classes of Cookbooks found within the game, and they can only be collected once. After that, they will be implemented automatically, and you will be able to craft new items from your Item Crafting tab.
The different classes of Cookbooks are:
- Nomadic Warrior’s Cookbook – 24 books
- Armorer’s Cookbook – 7 books
- Glintstone Craftsman’s Cookbook – 8 books
- Missionary’s Cookbook – 7 books
- Ancient Dragon Apostle’s Cookbook – 4 books
- Perfumer’s Cookbook – 4 books
- Fevor’s Cookbook – 3 books
- Frenzied Cookbook – 2 books
There are a total of 59 Cookbooks to be found throughout the game, each with different unlockable recipes.
Using The Cookbooks
You are required to have crafting enabled before you can make use of your Cookbooks. First, you will need to buy a Crafting Kit from Merchant Kale in the Church of Elleh, Limgrave. This will cost 300 runes and unlocks the crafting option in the main menu.
Once you have the Crafting Kit, you need to have the ingredients and the relevant Cookbook before making a recipe. For example, if you want to craft Bone Arrow, you would need Nomadic Warrior’s first Cookbook and Thin Beast Bones x3.
Crafting is done by pausing the game and clicking on the Crafting tab in the main menu. Here, you will see a list of all your unlocked recipes and the required ingredients.
Cookbook Recipes And Locations
There are different ways how to use the Cookbook, and all the unlockable recipes are listed with their required Cookbooks. You can also find out where to get these Cookbooks, whether it is a simple purchase from a merchant or a long exploration quest.
