Cooking Battle Guide in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

Become a master chef in Eiyuden Chronicle with this condensed guide!

Years after launching what would become an insanely successful crowdfunding campaign, new JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes has finally been released. At some point in the game, you will unlock a minigame wherein you have to cook for a panel of judges. In this guide, we’ll try to help you figure out how to win in the Cooking Battle activity.

Cooking Battle Guide

As you play through the game, you will eventually stumble into a chef named Kurtz. Once you have recruited him, you will be able to construct a restaurant back home where he will be hanging out in.

This will unlock the cooking battle minigame, which is also going to allow you to eventually recruit yet another character (Celia) if you choose to participate in it.

How The Minigame Works

There are a few things you need to keep track of whenever you participate in the cooking battle minigame that will affect how a contest will play out. Mainly, you need to consider the following:

  • The judges that will be chosen – These are randomly chosen from the roster of characters that you have recruited so far, and each have their own preferences.
  • The recipes you have at this point – New ones can also be unlocked as you win cooking battles.
  • You will be making three dishes – Prepare to cook an appetizer, main dish, anda dessert. There is reportedly a penalty for cooking the incorrect type of dish.
  • There is a 45 second time limit
  • Judges will give you a score from 0 to 5 – They will be judging you with this scale for each dish.

The main roadblock to your success will be the judges’ preferences, and there are many ways you can figure this out. Trial and error can work, as you are allowed to rematch after a loss, but this is the most time-consuming way of learning.

Aside from the little hints that you might get through dialogue, one way to figure out what the different characters’ favorite food are is through the Divination Room. There, you can view your allies’ backgrounds and learn very specific details about them.

Finally, you have to wait around 10 minutes or so after each battle before you can start another one. Take this opportunity to do other activities, as there is no way around this cooldown as far as we know.

What Dishes Do People Like?

As the game has just released, thorough testing is still required to figure out the absolute best dishes that each potential judge will like. With that said, bits of information about their preferred dishes are out there, and to save you some time, we’ll be listing down what some of them are.

Just note that there may be other dishes that the characters listed below like, so these are not necessarily the only options that you can go for. These are basically their favorite dishes as well as maybe one other choice that might work too.

Finally, players have noticed that the rival chefs that you will be facing throughout the different battles use the same dishes every time for each course.

Scroll of Heaven – Cooking Battle Against Trey (#10)

Before I let you go, there is one other thing that you need to know. When you first face Trey, the tenth opponent, you are going to lose no matter what due to him somehow getting perfect scores all the time.

This is because he possesses an arcane scroll that makes him almost completely unbeatable. What you need to do is search for the Scroll of Heaven that he alluded to in order to even the playing field.

The Scroll of Heaven can be found in the Seaside Cavern, specifically in the southwest corner highlighted in the map below. Just look for a glowing item on the ground and that should be it.

With the scroll in your hands, you can now come back and beat Trey. Keep in mind that the Scroll of Heaven may not appear until you face him for the first time, so do that first before looking for it.

And that is everything you need to know in order to participate in and complete the many cooking battles in the game, which will also lead to you recruiting two playable characters. While you’re here, consider checking out our guide on how to Recruit Wyler in Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes as well, so you can (maybe) feed him some vegetable juice!
