Additional Wines[edit]

Need to add the followine wines to food purchased from Talen-Jei at the riften pub:

  • Cliff Racer
  • Velvet Lechance
  • White Gold Tower

all restore 23 stamina — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 22:19 on 12 November 2011‎

They're listed at Skyrim:Potions (see also redirects at Cliff Racer, Velvet LeChance, and White-Gold Tower) based on the game's internal flag for food vs potion. Do they show up in your inventory listed under food or listed under potions? --NepheleTalk 22:49, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
They should be listed under potions, and they restore 25 points of stamina, not 23. (May be a bug) — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 19:15 on 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Selling food items[edit]

There's quite a few NPCs around who will happily pay gold for some of the food items (cabbage & potatos mostly), would it be worth adding them to the article? Roboe 22:51, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Restore Health over duration not working[edit]

After someone pointed out, that the 720s Restore Health of Venison Stew is not working, I increased the regeneration rate with SkyEdit to 30 points a second. It seems that this had no effect at all. So my suspicion is that the whole effect is not working. --Killfetzer 08:10, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Confirmed when testing a food mod and the console commands health regeneration set to zero. None of the Restore Health effects over time of Venison stew, or Vegetable Soup work. The Restore Stamina is there in some singular capacity though. Fix it by using the Creation Kit and change FoodRestoreHealthDuration similar to FoodRestoreStaminaDuration effect. The only change was to the magic effect 'FoodRestoreHealthDuration' change variable name reference from 'HealthRateMult' to selection 'Health' (parallel FoodRestoreStaminaDuration scheme). — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 13:57 on 15 February 2012

Jessica's Wine – Quest related?[edit]

I see the notes to Jessica's Wine tells it is related to the quest Laid to Rest, but I can see no connection after having both finished the quest and searched through the whole of UESP. (And even after having googling it extensively.) --MortenOSlash 19:21, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

The editorID for the wine is MS14WineAltoA. All quest-related items in the game are given an editorID that starts with the ID of the quest, so the "MS14" is a clear reference to Laid to Rest. In other words, the item was added to the game solely because of that quest. The quest may have been subsequently changed, but I think the reason for the item's existence is still relevant. If nothing else, it narrows down the search for where to look for its purpose and the significance of "Jessica", even if the ultimate conclusion is that it has no purpose and there is no Jessica. --NepheleTalk 07:38, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I guess it is a part of the quest, including a reference to a NPC "Jessica" omitted from the final release, then? --MortenOSlash 22:06, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Fresh meat[edit]

I may just be missing it, but I believe that the "Fresh meat" given to the player during "A Daedra's Best Friend" is missing from this list. 02:37, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

As far as I can tell, you're just given a Mammoth Snout, and that snout is listed in the Raw Meat section, as a second entry under the standard snout. --NepheleTalk 07:47, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
The item I got from Lod was also "Fresh Meat" in my inventory. There's no base ID for that, so it looks like it's taking the Mammoth Snout and renaming it with MESG e0d52. I'm not sure how to verify what it started as, but it seems likely enough. Is there a way to get the base ID directly from the ref ID, rather than searching via help? Well, other than the CK I suppose. Vardis 22:46, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Firebrand Wine & Cyrodilic Brandy[edit]

According to the beverages section, firebrand wine exists in bottle form, not just in the case. Are there any known locations? I need it for my beverage collection. Also, where can cyrodilic brandy be found? 10:04, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Yeah where is the firebrand im looking everywhere for it. it would be more useful if there was a locations bar. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 21:30 on 16 January 2012
WHERE IS FIREBRAND WINE I NEED TO KNOW WHERE IT IS. DO ANY OF YOU EVEN KNOW? WHERE IS IT???? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 21:46 on 16 January 2012
If you are looking for a "Firebrand Wine Case", see the associated questpage Scoundrel's Folly. The only appearance (not in a test cell) of a single bottle is in a cell called "Do Not Delete - Not A Test Cell" with ID ThievesGuildHoldingCell. That cell contains several Thief Guild quest related items, that disappear from there when advancing through the quest line. So I'm not sure if there is a way to get that bottle somehow. --Alfwyn 14:58, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Cyrodilic Brandy is only referenced in the quest "On the way to the Wedding" with ID WEDL03, which seems to be a random world encounter. See Plautis Carvain and Salonia Carvain for a bit of information about it. --Alfwyn 15:10, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
You can pickpocket Plautis for the cyrodillic brandy but only if you have not yet killed the dragon on Mount Anthor. Has anyone figured out what triggers Firebrand wine to leave that cell and where it goes? 18:09, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Elsweyr Fondue?[edit]

On my game, elsweyr fondue gives 25 PERCENT bonus to magicka regeneration, not 25 units of magicka regeneration. Would someone mind checking this? — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 01:20 on 24 January 2012

They mean the same thing. A point of Regenerate Magicka refers to a percentage point. You may be thinking of Restore Magicka, which would be 25 points of magicka restored per second. -Vardis 02:40, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Dragon's Breath Mead[edit]

For us console users, are there any useful landmarks we can use to find the wilderness bottle NNE of Bruca's Leap Redoubt? Unfortunately, the coordinates don't translate to PS3 play. Thanks in advance. 06:22, 17 February 2012 (UTC)Marcus

Never mind. I found the right place (rock overhang guarded by three wolves). Apparently, the bottle doesn't exist until the quest initiates.(PS3 user) 16:31, 17 February 2012 (UTC)Marcus

Soup Icons Bug[edit]

I have installed Hearthfire on PC, and I am not getting the new models for the already existing soups in the original game. I am wondering if this should be added as a possible bug, and if so, whether it should go in this article or the Hearthfire main page. As far as I can tell, I'm not running any mods that affect food items, although I did recently uninstall one. --Kozol (talk) 00:53, 19 October 2012 (GMT)

I'm guessing this is a bug, and should be added to this page if it's not because of a mod. However, sometimes mods which don't *seem* to affect certain types of items will have unintended effects, so it may help to disable *all* user mods to see if the issue is fixed. Also, I think I saw a report somewhere about a texture mod causing unintended issues, so there's a more specific idea of where to look if you've got one. — ABCface 06:59, 19 October 2012 (GMT)
Quick update: I just started a clean save with all mods disabled, and the icons actually showed up fine. It seems that this is not a bug after all, and I appear to have some work to do. Also, thanks for the tip on the texture mods; I'll start experimenting with those first.--Kozol (talk) 16:39, 20 October 2012 (GMT)


"Sources: X guaranteed Y different locations, most notably <non-respawning area>" -WTF? The entry for raw beef marks the most notable location to find it as Japhet's Folly. However, this is an area that never respawns, so it's worthless as a long-term source of the item. I submit that a reference to somewhere that respawns would be more useful despite lower yield per trip. I don't know what the replacement location might be, though. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 04:39 on 14 January 2013‎

Meat Pies introduced in Dragonborn?[edit]

After I've completed the DLC i've noticed 2 'Meat Pies' under the Food section of my inventory. I dont know where I got them but they have a new model and I cant remember seeing them before... — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 15:56 on 8 February 2013

Those "Meat Pie"s are added by the Unofficial Skyrim Patch v1.2.3 , originally to fix an instance during a bard quest where apple pies are referred to as meat pies, but added to a regular leveled list too. --Alfwyn (talk) 16:47, 8 February 2013 (GMT)


I believe that Snowberries are also accounted for as raw food, at least according to the Snowberries page and I can sell them to innkeepers and Elrindir in the Drunken Huntsman. -- 17:17, 24 February 2013 (GMT)

Adding Soul Husks?[edit]

I haven't been able to add soul husks using player.additem itemcode quantity. I was just intending to mess around with the merchant Stroud (to see if he ever gives anything good, which he does rarely) in the soul cairn when I discovered this. King Mango (talk) 10:19, 20 October 2013 (GMT)

Since they're added by dlc, the first two digits of their item code may be different for different people. Count where Dawnguard is in your load order; if it's first after Skyrim.esm, then the item code is 01014dc4; if it's second after skyrim.esm, then it's 02014dc4 and so on. Xolroc (talk) 12:18, 20 October 2013 (GMT)

Crash bug[edit]

After accidentally catching some salmon, and then dropping it's meat while underwater, the game froze (PS3). Unsure if all food will do this, nor do I have the patience to check :p 05:05, 22 December 2013 (GMT)

Heavy Breathing from Food's Restore Stamina Effect[edit]

The "Restore X stamina for Y seconds" on some cooked Food (namely Vegetable Soup and Venison Stew) cause the game to glitch when the player uses all Stamina up - it gets stuck in the "Heavy Breathing" Sound effect.

This is due to the Food actually giving X Stamina back every second for Y seconds, which is correct - but the game can't correctly process the sudden drop to 0 stamina overlaping with the +1 stamina from the food effect (when sprinting ends, breathing starts), because there is supposed to be a short 3 second delay before stamina slowly regenerates automatically - stamina bar glows/flashes green. Since the effect adds X stamina every second, it causes an "regen override" which causes the player to recover "unnaturally" and therefore glitch.

I have no clue why and if then where and when and whatever nobody pointed this out yet, but at least a few people have had that breathing bug happen.

I've heard it happens from using Restore Stamina potions, but I can only make the "Food glitch" work; as above, with either Vegetable Soup or Venison Stew.

The Fix is: Shouting (preferably a 'full-length shout' like Fus Ro Dah) or reloading a savegame, or just ignoring it, when and how it wears off on its own, I dunno, only know it's 100% and everytime reproducable.

Eat Vegetable Soup, run like a devil until 0 stamina, heavy breathing starts, never stops, ???, reload savegame or sell the computer. MarukiTheFaceHater (talk) 03:00, 31 October 2014 (GMT)

Soups/Stews are OP?[edit]

I'm currently doing an LP of the ESV:Skyrim, and I have found that soups/stews (though being hard to find some specific items) have a very over powered part to them: their effects stack. So when in brawls or other fights, 10 or 5 soups/stews would be enough to out regen my opponent's DPS. I would like to share this knowledge with anyone on these forums. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 15:10 on 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes, this is a well known feature, and is mentioned on the Regenerate Health page.FrozenWolf150 (talk) 03:49, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Suggested Updates[edit]

I'd like to suggest the following updates to this page:

  • In the 'Fruit/Vegetables' section, under sources, indicate which items can be grown in the garden and optional greenhouse additional of player built homes. Similar to the Baking Food section.
  • Clean up of language in the 'Other Food' food section. It mentions 'None of these items can be cooked by the player...' but some of them actual can be with the Hearthfire add-on.

I'll make the changes in a few days if no one minds. Luke1138 (talk) 16:48, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Apple Dumpling glitch?[edit]

This is a very minor nitpick, but I was wondering if it's worth mentioning under a possible Bugs section that even though apple dumplings have a Restore Health 5 pts effect, selecting them in your inventory displays your stamina bar rather than your health bar.FrozenWolf150 (talk) 03:51, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Adding a food value column[edit]

Does anyone have any issues with me adding another column to the food charts to list the amount of hunger (a Survival Mode value) that it "cures?" Or if you do, any suggestions on how this information should be added? -Caraamon (talk) 01:42, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Suggested Update for Vegetable Soup[edit]

I'd like to suggest the following update to this page (notes for vegetable soup):

The (Restore Stamina) effect stacks. Eating eight vegetable soups allows you to run without stamina drain while wearing no armor/clothing. This is especially useful for vampires during the day. — Unsigned comment by (talk) at 13:30 on 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Player-Cooked Food section[edit]

Add two more columns from Skyrim:Cooking:

  • delta gold
  • delta weight

True Nord (talk) 15:36, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Stat per coin isn't terribly useful[edit]

Salmon Steak has 1.25 (5 heal per 4 gold) but better than Potato soup with 2 (10 heal per 5 gold)

True Nord (talk) 16:02, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Many stamina per coin are zeroes... True Nord (talk) 16:08, 10 May 2021 (UTC)
Another reason is that price isn't a fixed value like weight.
It may change within some range.
Wide ranges aren't useful to work with. True Nord (talk) 20:45, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Creation Club Food Section[edit]

A section is needed for the food added by the Creation Club.
