  1. Speak to Mirabel: She’ll express her longing for a taste of home and her forgotten Buñuelos recipe.
  2. Seek Clues: Mirabel remembers three of the ingredients – Wheat, Milk, and Eggs. You’ll need to talk to other characters to figure out the missing piece.
  3. Consult Remy: Remy, the talented chef from Ratatouille, suggests cheese as a potential ingredient based on Mirabel’s description.
  4. Gather the Ingredients: Now that you have the complete recipe, collect the required ingredients:
    • 1x Wheat
    • 1x Milk
    • 1x Egg
    • 1x Cheese
  5. Cook the Buñuelos: Head to a cooking station, like the one at Chez Remy’s restaurant, and combine the ingredients. Use one piece of coal to cook the Buñuelos.
  6. Return to Mirabel: Share the freshly made Buñuelos with Mirabel, completing the quest and unlocking the recipe for future use.
