A feast for a Duke[edit | edit source]

Items Required: None. Suggested: 2 Lumbridge teleport methods.

The quest start location.
To begin the quest, talk to the Cook on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of Lumbridge Castle inside the kitchen. You may choose to use a Lumbridge teleport method, as listed above to reach him. He informs you that it is Duke Horacio's birthday, and that he is supposed to prepare a cake for the celebration. However, he has forgotten to bring some of the ingredients required for the cake and asks you bring him a bucket of milk, an egg, and a pot of flour.
Note: you can skip the intended process by bringing a pot of flour, a bucket of milk, and an egg with you and talking to the Cook again, completing the quest in seconds.

Prep Work[edit | edit source]

Pick up a pot from the table near the Cook. Head down the nearby trapdoor, pick up a bucket from the nothernmost table, and then leave the basement.
Note: You can collect a second pot if you wish to make bread on the Lumbridge Castle's range, the Cook-o-matic 100, to complete the easy Lumbridge & Draynor Diary task.

Egg[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cook's Assistant is one of 6 quests released on the launch day of RuneScape.
  • There is an easter egg in the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest — when you introduce Zanik to the Lumbridge Cook, he tries to offer the quest to her. "In fact, it's a good thing I met you. It's the Duke's birthday today, and I should be making him a lovely big birthday cake. I need eggs, flour and milk...." You then tell the cook she does not have time for that, to which he responds "It was worth a try." This insinuates that the cook tries to trick newcomers into bringing him supplies.
