How to process food in Genshin Impact is a critical skill for new players to understand. Genshin Impact borrows a few mechanics from Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, one of which being it's cooking system where specific ingredients are needed to make each dish. Some of these ingredients need to be processed before they are actually cooked. Here's how you can process food.

How to Process Food in Genshin Impact

First you'll need to find a cooking fire to open up the cooking UI. These fires can be found scattered all over the map. Once you've opened up the menu, you should see two icons at the top, One that looks like a crossed knife and fork and one that looks like two chili peppers. You're going to want to click the peppers. This should open up the menu for processing.

You can then process ingredients to make other ingredients from the processing menu. For example, wheat can be turned into flour and meat into sausage. Depending on the item, it will take a different amount of time to process. You can, however, just queue a bunch of items for processing and leave it running while you go do other things. Once the ingredients are done you'll be able to use them for recipes.
