Once you try a new dish, the meal’s recipe will be automatically added to the recipe list of Manana and you can access them in the Rest Spots scattered across the world and cook whatever you like.

It is to be noted that when Manana will add the meals to her repertoire, the names of these meals will change. Also, check out all the Points Of No Return in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Manana is in charge of cooking all the meal recipes and her campsite is located just after Lake Rezzento. You just need to give all the necessary ingredients to Manana and she’ll prepare you the food you want. Also, check out our guide on all Voice Actors in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
