The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure — All 24 Recipe Locations

In usual Trails fashion, The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure contains a recipe book with a plethora of dishes to learn. They serve a multitude of benefits, notably acting as in-battle restorative and attack items, as well as being exchange tools for special collectibles.

I have listed the locations of each recipe in the game and brief descriptions of their initial window of availability alongside screenshots. Note that some recipes are obtainable for the vast majority of the game and that the windows of availability I have provided are for when they first become present.

Further, the later recipe directions in this article contain spoilers for certain story events and party members.
