Destiny 2 Dawning 2020 Event Guide Recipes Ingredients Dawning Essence

Eva’s Holiday Oven 2.0 recipes and ingredients

The Dawning 2020’s recipes and ingredients list follows what we’ve seen last year in Destiny 2 with a few changes.


Bear in mind that Essence of Dawning is a required ingredient that can come from various activities, whereas the other ingredients (i.e., Taken Butter, Cabal Oil) come from specific actions such as kills with abilities or kills vs. certain enemy races.

Likewise, you’ll be glad to know that Eva’s Holiday Oven 2.0 has the recipes you made from the previous year already unlocked, so you’ll always have an idea of what you can bake. Of course, it goes without saying that content vaulting also means you won’t get to craft goodies for departed characters (RIP Asher Mir in the radiolarian lake in the sky).
