Before cooking or consuming any food items you'll need to collect ingredients. It's very easy to gather ingredients. You can find some of them out in the wild while exploring like fish, raw meat, and berries while some items can only be brought from the local residents running a grocery shop in the main cities of a nation, milk and almonds are some of those items.

What is the purpose of the dishes?

Food items in Genshin Impact serve a very important purpose. They are there to revive characters and increase your characters' combat abilities. Cooking dishes can also be a part of your quests or unlock new achievements for you in the game. Food can come in handy in a lot of tight situations, especially when you are new in the game and a traveler's handy sword is probably the only weapon.

Following are the type of dishes you can prepare in Genshin Impact:-

  • Restorative dishes - These dishes bring back fallen characters and make them playable again. Examples- teyvat fried egg, steak.
  • HP recovery dish - These dishes have healing power and provide your characters with lost HP. Examples- Pita pockets, Mondstat Hash Browns
  • Stamina-increasing dishes - These dishes grant your more stamina, making your running, climbing, and swimming activities less hassle-free. Examples - Cream stew, Northern smoked chicken.
  • Combat abilities enhancing dishes - These dishes can increase your crit damage, crit rate, defense, and attack stats which greatly amplifies your party members' strength levels. Examples- Jade parcels, Jewelry soup.

How much can you feed a character?

You might have a lot of dishes but you can't actually feed them all to your characters at once. There is a limit to how much your character can eat at once. However, this rule only applies to hp recovery dishes and restorative dishes.
If you just brought a character back to life using a restorative dish, you can't immediately do that with another character and would have to wait for a few seconds.

Also, there is a little indicator icon below every character while you are feeding them recovery or restorative dishes. This icon shows how full a character is at the moment. If your character is completely full then, you can't feed them any more HP recovery dishes. 

On the other hand, you can feed your characters as many combat or stamina-enhancing dishes as you like, there is no limit to them. However, these dishes come it a set time limit, hence it is recommended you use them efficiently before their effect wears off.
