Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds contains different ingredients that can be used to cook a range of meals, but you can also use some to craft weapons.
In this popular mobile game, Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds, players are invited to explore a persistent world. The game forms part of the classic video game series, Ni no Kuni, and as such, you can experience similar gameplay, content and mechanics throughout the games in the series.
As opposed to its predecessors, the mobile game has a new multiplayer mode that you can enjoy with friends. The game contains a variety of activities and events for you to partake in, however, you should first complete the tutorial mission.
You can then complete quests, summon Familiars, improve your cooking skills, and challenge other players in the player-versus-player gaming mode.
There are currently only 2 places in the game where you can cook a delicious meal, one is in your Familiar Forest, and the other is in your Kingdom. Once you have arrived in a kitchen, you need to talk to the chef who usually wears a blue and white apron with a green ribbon tied around her waist.
You can select the food you want to cook after you have engaged in a conversation with her. Every meal has a unique effect on your character, such as increasing their statistics or combat power for a specific duration.

How to eat food
After cooking a meal, you can either consume it or give it to another player to benefit from it. To eat a meal, you can select the plus icon next to your character’s health bar, which is located in the upper left corner of the screen. Clicking on this icon will open a small menu that lists all of your available food.
Alternatively, you can share your food with your friends by selecting your inventory then heading to the consumables tab. Keep in mind that only some food can be shared with friends and this will be indicated when you select a specific meal. You can then decide whether you want to share it with friends, with everyone, or with Kingdom members.
As stated before, you can also craft food in your Familiar Forest. Players should remember that the food that can be crafted in your oven is very limited. This is because the food you can cook in your Familiar Forest is used to feed your farm workers.
