Cookbooks are basically used to make the most of the Crafting Kit and will help you unlock new crafting recipes. If you need some ammo or consumables based on the situation and location you are in, cookbooks along with crafting materials will come to your rescue and are crucial for your progress.

Whenever you encounter a merchant, make sure to check if they are selling any cookbooks and if they do, purchase them for Runes. Apart from that, you can explore the vast regions and loot corpses and chests to get them without spending your hard-earned Runes. They can also sometimes be obtained via enemy/boss drops or they can be given to you by an NPC.
