Witcher 3: Wild Hunt provides you with potions, serums and rations of all types to fortify yourself with on your journeys, but one of the first you'll likely find is uncooked raw meat. We'll show you what can be done with it and how to make the most of it here.
Can You Cook Raw Meat in Witcher 3?
No, surprisingly enough, or at least not without some alterations to the game. Geralt can eat any meat he gets hold off as he would any other food item, and suffers no ill effects for doing so (Witchers are canonically immune to most diseases, so presumably that includes food poisoning too). Feel free to eat it without fear of penalty, but be aware that it's almost never as good for healing as cooked or prepared food, usually offering a lesser regenerative effect for half the time.
How to Cook Raw Meat in Witcher 3
If you are intent on setting up a Temerian barbecue, you'll need to use mods that enable you to cook. A current popular example is the "What's For Dinner" mod by Az0r3, which allows you to make numerous recipes from food ingredients, similarly to making oils and elixirs in the alchemy menu. Keep in mind that this is only available for those on PC.
Of course, there's a lot more to Witcher 3 than cooking up burgers. You can always check out our guide to Witcher 3's level cap right here, or get a true mastery of magic with our full guide to signs and spells here.
