Next, take it near Koyin and interact with her. Afterwards, go inside the Hateno Pasture and talk to Koyin to complete the quest and obtain Hateno Cheese required for completing A New Signature Food quest.

That said, once you have the quest, go to the Hateno Village West Well, jump inside, and make your way to the yellow quest marker. Once you are there, use the Ascend ability to enter Reede’s secret room.
Once you are inside, read Reede’s Journal, return and talk to Clavia to complete the quest.

Once Cece comes outside, follow her to Silo on the opposite side. Make sure to maintain distance, or she will catch you.
Go back and tell what you found Sophie inside Ventest Clothing. Once that is done, she will ask you to climb up the Silo and see what Cece is up to. Climb the Silo and enter it using the small window shown in the screenshot below.
