As you might've already expected, getting around Elden Ring with any element of ease is not going to be without labour. The hauntingly beautiful world has been crafted by game director Hidetaka Miyazaki, with writing from Game of Thrones author, George R.R. Martin, and a lot of mechanics borrowed from prior FromSoftware games.

One of the most common mechanics is that of crafting. While a lot of the items you may need can be bought from merchants using Runes, many other items will need to be crafted using Cookbooks, as well as various materials and resources that you gather during your journey and throughout fights.

To start crafting, you'll need to acquire a few things first, including Cookbooks. Fortunately, we're here to walk you through it! In this guide, we explain how to craft and where to get all Cookbooks in Elden Ring.

How to Craft in Elden Ring

To craft anything whatsoever, you will first need to get your hands on the Crafting Kit from Merchant Kale for 50 Runes. Once you have this, you will need to gather different Cookbooks to unlock new recipes for craftable items. Cookbooks are not consumables and are only needed once for you to have learnt its contents.

How to Get All Cookbooks in Elden Ring

Cookbooks in Elden Ring can often be found naturally, or purchased from Merchants, but they're just as easy to miss too.

Below, we've listed each Cookbook, its corresponding recipes, and where you can find it! However, we also have a customisable map above from our friends at MapGenie which shows each Cookbook location on the map of The Lands Between.
