This page lists all recipe magazines.
Recipe magazines are items found in game which unlock abilities to the character, such as the ability to make new foods, learn to assemble equipment, and usage of various items, including generators. Skills and traits which the player did not pick can be partially acquired by using the magazines (such as the ability to make pesticide, which without the magazine is exclusively a farming trait).
Recipe magazines can also be used as a fuel, but considering the importance of the magazines in case of character death, it's best to keep them stored.
Like other magazines, recipe magazines are most commonly found inside mail boxes, however they can also be found inside bookshelves of houses and libraries. The Guerilla Radio magazines in particular can only be found in engineer houses and vehicles as well as the trunks of radio vans.
