How to level up cooking

The easiest way to level up your cooking skill early on is to complete the Welcome to Palia quest, speak to Reth and make a campfire. Then, continuously make food at a campfire until you reach level two. If you speak to Reth after making the campfire he will send you recipes in the mail which will help.

You'll unlock more recipes from Reth the higher your cooking skill is. It's worth investing time into your cooking as unlocking better recipes will help you retain Focus.

Focus is represented by the eye icon and meter at the top left of the screen. Completing skilled tasks when focused will give you an increased boost to XP and will help level you up faster.
