Cooking in Fire Emblem Three Hopes

Information about Cooking in Fire Emblem Three Hopes, including details on how Cooking works and what benefits you get from sharing meals with other characters.

To indulge in some cooking, talk to the Kitchen Master.

How to Unlock the Kitchen Master

During Chapter 4 you’ll be introduced to the [Base Camp], where numerous facilities and services will be at your disposal. One of them - operated by an NPC called the Kitchen Master - allows you to cook meals. You’d think this would be a job for a chef, but hey, maybe it’s relaxing for Shez to sometimes drop the mercenary gig and get her hands dirty making a meal for her friends?

How Cooking Works in Fire Emblem Three Hopes

Interact with the Kitchen Master and you’ll be able to choose the option “Cook a Meal”. What follows is a fairly straightforward process: you’ll get a list of meals you can cook to select from. Pick one, invite two pals, and boom, you’re eating like a king. Or with a king, as the case may be. Characters you share a meal with will gain Morale, Support Points and other benefits depending on the exact meal cooked (Shez will also gain Support Points).

Of course, things have to be more complicated than that. Nobody starves if you don’t eat, so you must be getting your meals somewhere. That being the case, all the cooking Shez does is purely elective, and as such, she has to provide her own ingredients. Different meals require different ingredients, and you can earn these ingredients by purchasing them from the Item Shopkeeper or by completing battles (you can replay battles via the Record Keeper starting in Chapter 5). Different meals also have different effects. The effects and required resources are listed on the right hand side of the screen when you’re browsing the list of available meals.

Complicating matters further is the fact that different characters have different tastes. After you select a meal you’ll get a list of characters you can invite to dine with you. Blue up arrows by the character’s name indicate they favor the meal, red down arrows indicate that the character doesn’t like the meal, and no arrows means the character is neutral in regards to the dish. The more a character likes a meal, the more Support Points they’ll gain from dining with you. Like many camp activities, there’s also an element of RNG involved - when cooking Shez will get one of three results, in order from worst to best: Nice, Great, Perfect. The better Shez performs, the more Support Points your dinner characters will get.

Finally, you will not have access to all available meals from the start of the game. To unlock more meals you’ll need to expand the [Recreation Quarter] facility. Specifically you’ll need to purchase the following upgrades:

  • Buy Basic Cooking Utensils
  • Buy Specialty Cooking Utensils
  • Buy the Latest Cooking Utensils

Cooking Effects in Fire Emblem Three Hopes

In addition to the aforementioned Morale and Support Points characters who dine together will receive, they’ll also gain various meal-based bonuses. Meal-based bonuses will last for the entire Chapter and will be granted to all characters who consumed said meal, and if characters consume more than one meal with different effects, those effects will stack. While not our first choice when it comes to spending Activity Points (we’d rather spend our time Volunteering to earn Renown), if you have any spare Activity Points to burn or plan to do some serious farming/grinding, the benefits gained from sharing meals may be worthwhile.

Below you’ll find a list of meals, their required resources, and their effects.
