# COOKING IN “TEARS OF THE KINGDOM”
Are you a fan of “The Legend of Zelda” games? If so, you probably already know about the importance of cooking in “Breath of the Wild.” Well, the latest installment in the series, “Tears of the Kingdom,” takes cooking to a whole new level with the introduction of the portable pot.
## STARTING FROM SCRATCH
While “Tears of the Kingdom” takes place shortly after “Breath of the Wild,” it’s important to note that it leaves Link vulnerable. As the game opens, you’ll find yourself with limited armor and weapons, making it essential to find other ways to boost Link’s abilities. That’s where the portable pot comes in.
## NOT JUST A SIMPLE TOOL
At first glance, the portable pot might not seem like a powerful tool. After all, it only allows you to cook single meals. But the fact that you can carry multiple pots with you at all times and use them to cook whatever you find along the way is a game-changer. Food and elixirs are essential for keeping Link healthy and strong, and with the portable pot, you can whip up something quickly whenever you need it.
## COOKING ON THE GO
One of the biggest advantages of the portable pot is its mobility. Unlike in “Breath of the Wild,” where you could only cook at fixed locations, the portable pot can travel with you. This is especially useful when you’re deep in a dungeon or in the middle of a boss battle and need a quick boost.
## FUSING YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS
Another reason the portable pot is so valuable is that it encourages players to collect resources. In “Tears of the Kingdom,” you can use Fuse to combine weapons, shields, and other items to create more powerful versions of them. Having access to the portable pot means you can always be ready to create something that will give you an edge in battle.
## A NEW COOKBOOK
“Breath of the Wild” required players to memorize recipes and plan ahead when it came to cooking. With the portable pot and Link’s new recipe book, all you need to worry about is whether you have the ingredients you need.
## A POWERFUL TOOL
Don’t underestimate the importance of the portable pot in “Tears of the Kingdom.” While it might not seem as impressive as some of the other tools in the game, it’s essential for keeping Link alive and giving him the edge he needs in battles. So be sure to stock up on portable pots and ingredients, and get ready to cook your way to victory!
