There are two classes of cold-based cooking effects that can be granted by particular cooking ingredients:

Simple cold-based cooking effects grant only Basic Effects, as listed below. They cannot grant triggered effects.

Basic Effects[edit | edit source]

The following basic effects can be granted by this category of ingredients.

A basic effect is guaranteed when cooking with only one ingredient. Basic effects can also sometimes be obtained when cooking with two or more ingredients. For more information, refer to basic and triggered effects.

+10-15 Cold Resist
Can use Freezing Hands at level 1-2. If you already have Freezing Hands, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels.
Can use Cryokinesis at level 1-2. If you already have Cryokinesis, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels.
Can use Ice Breath at level 1-2. If you already have Ice Breath, it's enhanced by 2-3 levels.

Mental mutations granted by cooking effects are also boosted to additional levels by the player's Ego modifier. This applies to Cryokinesis granted by cold-based cooking effects.

Trigger Conditions[edit | edit source]

The following trigger conditions are associated with this category of ingredients.

A trigger condition causes another ingredient's triggered effects to activate. When cooking with two or more ingredients, the game may randomly select one ingredient to supply a trigger condition and another ingredient to supply the triggered effects. These are combined into a single randomly generated cooking effect. For more information, refer to basic and triggered effects.

Whenever you deal cold damage, there's a 25% chance...
Whenever you are slowed by cold,...

These effects occur in response to a trigger condition supplied by a different ingredient.
