Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Genli’s Home Cooking Walkthrough

Help Genli create her new home cooked dish, Biting Simmered Fruit.

Genli’s Home Cooking is a side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that takes place in Rito Village of Hebra Region. You need to help a Rito child complete her new dish by finding her a fish she desires.

In this guide, we will help you acquire this quest and complete it in the easiest possible manner. Make sure that you have purchased and equipped the Snowquill Armor to avoid the freezing cold of Tabantha Tundra.

Talk to Genli at Slippery Falcon

Genli’s Home Cooking side quest can only be acquired after completing the Molli the Fletcher’s side quest. Once you listen to the song of Rito children, they will scatter across Rito Village, and then you can contact Genli.

Fast Travel to Rito Village by using the Gatakis Shrine. Make your way to the general store and talk to a Rito child present there. She is Genli (with green feathers), and she will ask you to find her a specific fish for her new dish.

This will start the quest and add it to your journal.

Find a Staminoka Bass

Genli needs Staminoka Bass to create her new dish. You can find this fish in multiple ways.

  • If you have already progressed the story a lot, there is a chance that you will have this fish in your inventory. Simply hand it over to Genli.
  • Fast travel to the Riverside Stable and search the water bodies near it. They are full of Staminoka Bass.
  • You can also visit the pond in the eastern part of Rito Village to catch some Staminoka Bass.

Return to Genli and hand over the bass to her. This will complete Genli’s Home Cooking side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Quest Reward

Genli will give you her new dish, Biting Simmered Fruit. This meal restores two and a half hearts when consumed and increases your attack in cold weather for the next five minutes.
