Roots of Pacha – Cooking Guide

Basic cooking information, all the recipes and a list with all the ingredients you’ll need.


Welcome to Cooking guide.

In this guide you’ll get all the information you want to know around cooking. From ingredients to dishes to a complete list of what you’ll need to bake it all!

Preparing Dishes is pretty simple: all you need to do is interact with a Kitchen. Doing so will have a menu with a certain amount of recipes appear.

The Kitchen is a facility that’s made available to you as soon as you build a Small Hut through Croll’s exchange.

However, if you’re really eager to start cooking, you can always use the Kitchen at the Pachan Hearth – though you won’t be able to gain access to upgrades such as Utensils until you’ve built your own, meaning that your recipe list will be rather small.

Gaining Acces to More Recipes

You might note that the variety of Dishes you’re able to cook from the beginning is rather small, nowhere close to the Recipe List that follows this section. That’s because, in order to expand your recipe catalog, you’ll need to do one of the following:

Expand your Kitchen. This is done by upgrading your Hut through Croll’s exchange. To name an example, the Medium Hut automatically unlocks the Ground Oven, which in turn unlocks several recipes for you to cook. Additionally, upgrading your Hut enables you to…

Develop the Kitchen-related Ideas, such as Cold Storage and the Clay Oven (click on their respective names to learn more on how to obtain them).

Purchase Cooking Utensils from Tare. There’s a wide arrangement of them, which are made available to you as you expand your Kitchen and discover new Ores.

Sometimes you’ll note certain greyed-out Dishes will come with a red-cross icon: this means you need to buy a certain Utensil before being able to cook it. Said Utensil will be listed among the ingredients.

Last but not least, developing friendships with different people will also unlock new recipes. Specifically, there are 3 per each neighbouring clan’s (Yakuan and Mograni) characters; plus 1 that’s given to you by Era.

Meeting all of the requisites above should unlock access to all of the Dishes that are in the game, so don’t shun any of them!

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
