Cooking Match Guide

A guide to every round of the cook-off in the main campaign, detailing the judges, their preferences, and the theme ingredients of the match.



Chapter 1

Shortly after arriving in Brigade Town, Mina will challenge Thrash to a practice match. This will serve as your first taste of the cooking competition gameplay, and is your only actual match this chapter.

Practice Match
Opponent: Thrash
Judge: Kirin
Judge’s Favored Flavor: EARTH
Theme Ingredient: Caranha
Caranha Parts: 4 Types Total – Seed, Stomach, Wing, Jelly



Chapter 2

Each day, you will have the opportunity to work three jobs. At the Hunter’s Guild, at the Crescent Resaurant, and at Belchior’s Workshop. It is recommended that you perform all three jobs before you proceed with challending another contestant for a match. Although on most days you have the chance to finish the jobs after your match, sometimes story progress will lock you out and prevent you from working after you’ve finished your match.

Also, each job you do gives you gold with which you can buy ingredients, expertise books, or cooking equipment from the shop. These can help you improve your score during the cooking match.

At the start of Chapter 2, after completing the tutorial for each of the three jobs and the shopping, you have the option of challenging either Thrash or Shiv for your first official match. Although the prompt for Cezar is available too, he won’t accept your challenge.

Match #1
Opponent: Thrash or Shiv
Judge: Ambassedor Akebo
Judge’s Favored Flavor: FIRE
Theme Ingredient: Baurun
Baurun Parts: 2 Types Total – Ribs, Steak
Note: If you win against Shiv, she gives you a trinket that lets your daggers slow enemies. If you win against Thrash, he gives you a trinket that lets your daggers set enemies on fire.

At the start of the next day, you’ll get a trinket that gives you +1 Mana and +1 HP

You can challenge either Leonid or Kirin for this day. Cezar is still not willing to accept your challenge.

Match #2
Opponent: Kirin or Leonid
Judge: Instructor Maradain
Judge’s Favored Flavor: WATER
Theme Ingredient: Dragon
Dragon Parts: 3 Types Total
Note: The dragon can be a difficult monster to fight. Be sure to hunt him down first or risk running out of time to gather the ingredients.
If you win against Leonid, he gives you an ingredient that adds wildcard orbs to your dish. If you win against Kirin, she gives you a pair of winged boots that lets you double jump.

Before your next match, Kirin introduces you to Expertise Books. She will also give you Apprentice Expertise: Butcher for free. This book will let you gain bonus points if your dish uses all the possible types of ingredients from the themed monster.

Cezar the grumpy dwarf will now finally accept challenges from you!

Match #3
Opponent: Cezar or Ziggy or Shiv or Thrash or Kirin
Judge: Grand Matriarch Hazgil and Akebo
Judge’s Favored Flavor: EARTH, FIRE
Theme Ingredient: Verskit
Verskit Parts: 3 Types Total – Blood, Meat, Tail
Note: If you defeat Cezar, he gives you the Stoic’s Pan, which requires 4 orbs to match but will promote a level 1 gem to level 3. Ziggy will give you his spicy ketchup, which gives x2 Red Sauce.

On the next day, if you work at Belchior’s shop he will give you a free slow cooker oven, so you do not need to buy it in the shop.

Match #4
Opponent: Cezar or Ziggy or Leonid
Judge: Maradain and Hazgil
