There are two classes of random cooking effects that can be granted by particular cooking ingredients:

  • Random, usually powerful cooking effects:

Random cooking effects has a much broader spread of effects to pick from, and Random, usually powerful cooking effects focuses on the rarer and more powerful effects.

Ingredients with these effects will not appear in recipes created while inspired from Carbide Chef; a random ingredient that provides the effect chosen will be picked instead.[1] However, they may still end up in other generated recipes, such as in village ovens.

Random Effects [2]

A notable inclusion on this list is uncertain attribute-based effects, the effect drops of nectar provide, at a 1.47% chance of being picked. Including the 25% chance for the actual effect to activate, there is a 0.37% chance of every meal to gain +1 to all attributes.

Unused Effects

None of the following effects will be (directly) chosen. However, included effects may be supersets of these, in which case the effects may still show up.
