It’s been said that cooking for people you care about makes it taste better because you add more personal touches to ensure they like it. The heroes of Genshin Impact seem to be firm believers of this, as the majority of them have their own special versions of the game’s numerous dishes. Here’s how you can make these lovely culinary creations for yourself.

How to Make All of the Special Dishes in Genshin Impact

To make a character’s special dishes in Genshin Impact, follow these steps:

  • Head to a campfire, stove, or cooking area
  • Select a Character’s Special Dish recipe from the list below
  • Select Cook and tap Select Character on the top right
  • Look for the Character Bonus: May make a special dish

In Genshin Impact’s cooking menu, you may have noticed a prompt to select which character from your roster will actually do the cooking. Some characters produce extra servings of certain dishes, while others make dishes with stat bonuses. What you’re looking for, though, is a single sentence listed under the character’s cooking proficiency: “May obtain special dishes.”

If you select a meal to cook, and then select a character with an affinity for that meal, there’s a chance you’ll receive that character’s personalized version of the meal when they cook it. These special dishes are not only more potent than their normal counterparts, they feature some pleasant and funny flavor text. You can’t force it to happen, unfortunately; it’s all up to chance, though there is a possibility you’ll still get the special dish even if you botch the cooking.
