How To Cook In Resident Evil 8 Village

Cooking at The Duke’s Kitchen in Resident Evil Village is the only way to boost your health bar, minimize harm while defending, and improve movement speed. Animals won’t resurrect after you’ve slaughtered and harvested their meat, so resources are limited in the village. You’ll find plenty of basic beef, poultry, and fish, but you’ll be restricted by Quality Meat, Finest Fish, and Juicy Game, as each of these animals is restricted to one per player. In this Resident Evil Village Cooking guide let’s look at how to make a variety of recipes, as well as where to locate the ingredients for them in Resident Evil Village.
