Headcanons for the champions' (old and new) reactions to Link's cooking and their favorite foods?
Mipha: Seeing as she grew up with Link, she knows of his cooking ability and loves it when he cooks for her. She’d often try to pitch in and help out around the kitchen, if only to be closer to him. Favorite food is fried Voltfin Trout with an herbal garnish.
Sidon: Keeps forgetting that Link is actually a really good chef. Everytime Link cooks something for him he’s shocked by how tasty it is. Not really a picky eater so he doesn’t have a favorite food. He’ll eat pretty much anything you put in front of him.
Darruk: Flat out doesn’t get it. Why would you spend all that time hunting and gathering meat and vegetables or fruits when there’s perfectly good rocks all around. He’ll never say no to a good rock sirloin though.
Yunobo: Pewter chips are his favorite food, but he’s a lot more willing to try whatever Link cooks up. He helps guide Link on what ingredients Gorons can and cannot eat.
Rivali: Insists that Link’s cooking is decent, mediocre at best but edible. Of course he secretly loves it but he’d never tell Link that. Nothing better to him than a roasted hearty salmon stuffed with nuts.
Teba: Doesn’t like fancy meals as he feels they slow him down and keep him from performing at his best. He gladly accepts whatever survival rations Link prepares for him though. They make for good traveling food while he’s off in the Hebra mountains.
Urbosa: Insists that Link requires assistance and micromanages the preparation of each meal. “That’s too much rock salt.” “Not enough Hylian Herb” Link puts up with it and the dishes they produce are quite spectacular. Really enjoys rotisserie cooked birds and fruit salad.
Riju: Is absolutely enthralled by the idea of a Voe cooking. She insists that Link prepare her meals whenever he is in town. Never content to eat one particular dish over and over, she is always begging Link to cook something new for her. She’s especially interested in dishes from other cultures around Hyrule since she’s never really been able to leave the desert and travel to other towns. Frequently she’ll end up jotting down recipes and food descriptions in her diary, even going so far as having Link take pictures of the food before she eats it.
