The buffs from each ingredient in cooked food are the same no matter which other ingredient they are cooked with. Or which order. So, instead of trying to explore all 1700+ unique dishes, simply consider which buffs compliment and have similar duration. Thus avoid wastage from overlapping or unwanted buffs and unused duration (when re-applying buffs).
Buff Vs Duration Table:
(a) Cooked food takes on the highest of each buff value across both ingredients.
(b) Eating multiple different foods does not stack buffs of the same type. Last applied overwrites!
(c) All cooked food helps refill the food bar to some extent (from 2 to 31). See table below.
(d) Most fish give (from 2.1 to 5.2) health per second for 20s, in addition to their main effects (above).
(e) Golden vegetables grow from seeds planted with chance from "Expert Gardener" skill.
(f) "Master Chef" skill gives chance bonus cooked food has Rare (25%) or Epic (50%) increased stats.
(g) More skills modifying the above buff figures are listed in wiki page they are source from: https://wikizet.com/corekeeper/en/Cooking

This is currently a first draft,so there is likely to be errors in spelling and transferring details from the wiki. Perhaps in the wiki itself has discrepancies, as this is a rapidly changing Early Access game. Hence this guide will soon be outdated, as new items are added and values tweaked.
