And here's Nintendo's rundown about this latest in-game item giveaway:

Spelunking without a light source in Hyrule can be a tricky business. Not only is it hard to see where you're going, but bumping into things in the darkness can have unpleasant consequences! This time, we're taking a look at how cooking can help you find your way in caves or the Depths.

Strange as it seems, cooking some of the glowing cave fish and brightcaps found in caves throughout Hyrule will give you a meal which, when eaten, will cause Link to glow! Granted, the effect doesn't last forever, nor will it illuminate an entire cave, but there'll be enough light to help you find your way.

Start the game...and you'll get some free ingredients to kickstart your culinary experiments. Cook these up together and you'll be able to make a Fish and Mushroom Skewer with a glow effect! The next time you find yourself stuck in a dark area, consider eating a light meal!
