While each recipe contributes to your survival in No Rest for the Wicked, there are a select few that will truly elevate your gameplay. Upon analyzing all the recipes available in the early access version of the game, it’s evident that the four standout recipes are: Angler’s Delight Chowder, Sirloin Platter, Herder’s Hearth Stew, and Fish Salad.

These particular cooking recipes yield the greatest benefits, especially in terms of health replenishment. Let’s take a look at the descriptions of each:

  • Angler’s Delight Chowder: Instantly restores 100 Health and 50 Focus.
  • Sirloin Platter: Instantly restores 150 Health. Increases Health by 45 for 600 seconds.
  • Herder’s Hearth Stew: Instantly restores 80 Health. Increases Stamina by 15 for 60 seconds.
  • Fish Salad: Instantly restores 80 Health and 50 Focus.

These recipes boast remarkable benefits that can prove invaluable during challenging encounters. Personally, my favorite is Angler’s Delight Chowder due to its dual effect of replenishing health and focus, enabling more frequent utilization of weapon runes.

Unlocking Additional Cooking Recipes in No Rest for the Wicked

If you’re looking to expand your repertoire of recipes in No Rest for the Wicked, there are a couple of methods to achieve this goal. One of the most effective ways is to assist Gordon in descending from the bridge during the “Innkeeper’s Husband” quest and escort him back to Sacrament. When Gordon returns to Sacrament, he will open his kitchen and offer recipes for sale. Furthermore, upgrading his kitchen through interactions with Danos will unlock even more recipes.

Grinnich may also carry cooking recipes in his inventory at times. If no recipes are visible in his stock, consider speaking to Danos to upgrade his shop. For a deeper insight into Gordon, Grinnich, and Danos, refer to our Sacrament merchants guide.
