Reede mentions how his grandfather worked with someone in the village to create a special food and how that recipe had a Gooey Mouthfeel. Reede can not remember who his grandfather worked with and what food items he made.

To complete this quest, you must figure out the special food’s ingredients.

A Letter To Koyin

This is also a side quest in the Hateno Village, and you must complete it to complete the “A New Signature Food” Side Quest. Koyin’s grandfather is the one who worked with Reede’s Grandfather to make that special food. So, you must go to Lake Sumac in Hateno Town, where you will find Koyin.

  1. Talk to her to start the “A Letter To Koyin” Side Quest.
  2. To complete this side quest, you must retrieve a floating bottle in the lake and give it to Koyin.
  3. At first, you can not grab it with your ultra-hand ability as the bottle is too far. So you need to create some surface in the water to get closer to it.
  4. I recommend cutting down trees near you and creating a log ship to help you close that distance off.
