You are able to cook throughout the game by gathering ingredients. Cooking is another way to recover lost HP and TP, and to cure Status Effects that inhibit combat prowess. Since meals affect all the characters in the party, cooking is a better method of recover than using most items!
Several requirements must be fulfilled to cook. The party must possess food items to use as ingredients, and the recipe to cook a meal must be understood. The choice of cook is also important, since some characters are better at cooking certain dishes than others. Make sure and fill up each character's cooking skill to increase the effect of cooking!
You can cook after battles, or between battles. Ingredients are obtained from defeating enemies, or can be bought in the various towns you will visit.
To unlock recipes, look at various objects that seem out of place. The wonder chef will pop out and teach you a new recipe!
