Cooking ingredients are available from the Market in the EnTama Tamagotchi Town, and UraTama Town. They are also sometimes available from the street vendor. He visits twice daily; at 11:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
After you've purchased some cooking ingredients, you can find them on your Tamagotchi by activating the chef icon (top row, second from the left). The chef menu contains three selections: food, snack, and cooking. When you select cooking, your Tamagotchi will beep if you don't have any ingredients. Otherwise, they will appear in a manner similar to the way food and snacks are displayed.
To the lower left of each ingredient pictured on screen, a small number is shown, indicating the quantity you have. To the upper right, a small icon indicates the ingredient's group. Just as each Tamagotchi belongs to a zoku, or group, so do the cooking ingredients. For EnTama the small icon is a pencil for intelligence, a sparkly star for style, and a flower for kindness. For UraTama there's a hand for humor, a different sparkly star for gorgeous, and flames for passion.
To successfully cook, you'll need to mix two ingredients belonging to the group that your Tamagotchi character belongs to. If any of these three don't match, your cooking experiment will fail. For example, if you have an Ura Mame character, your two ingredients must belong to the Ura Mame group too. Since there are neither Hatena-zoku nor Bikkuri-zoku ingredients, Tamagotchi characters from these groups can not cook.
To get started, activate the chef icon and select cooking. Scroll through the list until you reach the first ingredient you want to cook with. Press the middle button on your Tamagotchi to select it that ingredient. The screen will blink. Scroll through the list until you reach the second ingredient you want to cook with. Press the middle button to select it. Both selected ingredients will appear together, above two menu options. The upper option confirms your selections. The lower option cancels your selections. After confirming your selection, your character will appear, performing some action to mix the ingredients together. Successful cooking will result in a new food or snack item, which you should now be able to find in the food or snack menus.
When you Tamagotchi character consumes food or snacks that you've created, in addition to satisfying their hunger or happiness needs, their GUTS points will also increase.
Note: there are some ingredients with the same name but belonging to different groups. For example, "extract" is listed in the Mame, Meme, Kuchi, Ura Mame, Ura Meme, and Ura Kuchi sections. When cooking be sure to use the correct one, corresponding to that section. You can not use the Kuchi extract for Mame cooking; you have to use the Mame extract for Mame cooking.
