How to get the warm doublet
If you want the Breath of the wild warm doublet item before you head to the snowy area to tackle the two shrines found there, you need to make a Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry for the Old Man. If you complete the shrines without it, youll find the doublet in the Old Mans cabin, but its much more convenient to pick it up beforehand.
Read the diary in the Old Mans cabin and youll discover a partial recipe. It turns out that hell hand his warm doublet over to whoever figures out the missing ingredient.
The three ingredients are a Spicy Pepper, Raw Meat, and Hyrule Bass.
The pepper can be found growing near the entrance to the snowy area at the end of the path from the Shrine of Resurrection. There is a Bokogoblin camp off to the right of the arch and youll find a pepper plant here.
The fish can be seen swimming in the lake next to the Temple of Time. You can either shoot them with an arrow and dive in to grab them, swim over them and grab them, or throw a bomb in the water and wade in to get their bodies.
The Forest of Spirits is home to a number of boar. The easiest way to kill them is with a well-placed headshot. Otherwise, you can try to sneak up on them, but be warned, theyre flighty buggers.
Once youve made the dish, you need to present it to him when hes resting next to a campfire at night and tell him you cooked something.
Hand over the dish and the warm doublet is yours.

Blow up the wall to the right to reveal a chest containing a Travelers Claymore.
Now blow up the wall to the left, and hop onto the moving platform to get to the next room.
First of all, well get the chest in this area.
Head over to the far left.
Stand on the hydraulic platform and let it jettison you over to the platform with the chest containing amber.
Now head over to the right and up the steps. Drop a bomb into the pipe up here to blow up the cracked rocks opposite.
