There are a ton of hidden items in Bloodstained Ritual of the Night. You’ll often need to find these items as part of quests. One example of this is finding the Simmered Forneus Recipe Book to complete Susie’s questline.
Once you have the recipe, you can use it to make the Simmered Forneus dish. This provides Miriam with +5 Int when consumed for the first time which is useful later in the game.
Where to Find the Simmered Forneus Recipe
To find the Simmered Forneus Recipe, head off into the Forbidden Underground Waterway. You’ll have to drain the Blood Fountain first, and the Waterway is filled with enemies so make sure you have no trouble killing them.
Once you’re in the Underground Waterway, make your way to the entrance teleport and go down to the room with the giant waterfall. Then go two rooms to the left, one room up, and two more to the left. You should find yourself in a 2×5 vertical room.
The recipe is inside a green chest in this room. You’ll need to have the Inverted or High Jump unlocked in order to get to the book.
Here is a map of where the recipe is:
Once you have the recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients to prepare the dish:
- Forneus Filet (1)
- Soy Sauce (1)
- Sugar (1)
Forneus Filet is dropped by Forneus creatures, which can be found in the Forbidden Underground Waterway. Soy sauce can be obtained from the Oriental Sorcery Lab. And sugar can be bought from Dominique for 100G.
Once you have all these items, speak to Johannes and provide him with the materials. Voila, you have yourself a tasty fish dish.
