All Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot recipes and effects

Anyone who follows the journey of Goku, Gohan and Co. knows that food plays an important role in the warrior’s life. In the new RPG Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, the story is no different. Because of this, Bandai Namco has banked on a food and recipe system to create items that give players more Ki, among other effects.

These recipes can be made from a variety of ingredients found throughout the game’s universe, but some require you to meet specific characters or get far enough through the campaign. If you want to marvel at all the culinary delights of the Dragon Ball universe, check out the locations of each recipe below.
