Hello, Good News! Welcome to another article where we explore the fascinating world of Ark: Survival Evolved. In this article, we will focus on one of the most useful and interesting features of the game: cooking.
Cooking is not only a way to satisfy your hunger and thirst, but also a way to gain various buffs and benefits that can help you survive and thrive in the harsh environments of Ark. And if you are playing the Aberration expansion, you will need to learn how to cook some special recipes that are unique to this map.
What are Rockwell Recipes?
Rockwell Recipes are a set of notes that contain instructions on how to cook different dishes and potions using the ingredients found in Aberration. They are named after Edmund Rockwell, one of the original explorers of Ark and the main antagonist of the Aberration storyline.
Rockwell Recipes can be found scattered around the map, usually in loot crates or near explorer notes. They can also be accessed from your inventory by selecting the note icon. Once you have a Rockwell Recipe, you can use it to cook the corresponding dish or potion in a Cooking Pot or an Industrial Cooker.
Why are Rockwell Recipes important?
Rockwell Recipes are important because they provide you with some of the best consumables in the game. These consumables can give you various effects such as increased health, stamina, damage, speed, resistance, vision, and more. Some of them can also cure diseases, remove torpor, or reset your engrams and stats.
Some examples of Rockwell Recipes are:
- Battle Tartare: A dish that increases your melee damage, movement speed, and stamina regeneration, but also drains your health and food.
- Focal Chili: A dish that increases your crafting speed, movement speed, and melee damage.
- Lazarus Chowder: A dish that increases your oxygen, swim speed, and reduces water consumption.
- Medical Brew: A potion that restores 40 health over 2 seconds.
- Mindwipe Tonic: A potion that resets your engrams and stats.
- Nir—a Tonic (torn): A potion that induces a hallucinogenic state.
- Shadow Steak Saute: A dish that increases your night vision, melee damage, and resistance to cold and heat.
How to cook Rockwell Recipes?

The ingredients for Rockwell Recipes vary depending on the dish or potion you want to make. Some of them are common items that can be easily obtained, such as berries, meat, eggs, or mushrooms. Others are rare or exclusive to Aberration, such as basilisk scales, nameless venom, or auric mushrooms.

How to use Rockwell Recipes?
To use Rockwell Recipes, you will need to consume the dish or potion from your inventory or hotbar. You can also drag and drop the consumable onto your tamed creature to feed it. Once you consume a Rockwell Recipe, you will see a buff icon on the right side of your screen that indicates the effect and duration of the consumable.
Some Rockwell Recipes have positive and negative effects, so you need to be careful when and how you use them. For example, Battle Tartare will increase your damage and speed, but also drain your health and food. Nir—a Tonic will make you hallucinate, which can be fun or dangerous depending on the situation.
Some Rockwell Recipes also have a cooldown time, which means you cannot use them again until the timer runs out. For example, Mindwipe Tonic can only be used once per level, so you need to plan ahead when you want to reset your engrams and stats.
