The Culinaromancer is the final boss in the Recipe for Disaster quest. He is, according to legend, an evil mage who draws his power from food. A hundred years ago, the Culinaromancer was a cook in Lumbridge Castle for the town's duke. He used the exotic and esoteric foodstuffs to which he had access to improve his magical power. In the quest Recipe for Disaster, he was sealed away by Franizzard Van Lumbcook, one of the Lumbridge Castle cook's forefathers, when he threatened to destroy a council that gets together for a feast every ten years. Eliminating the secret council would have been the first step in his plan for world domination.

He can be fought in the Nightmare Zone after the quest is complete.

Fighting the Culinaromancer[edit | edit source]

The Culinaromancer throws his books to create his food-based minions.

The Culinaromancer uses melee and magic, and has a low combat level of 75. He essentially has no defence but should not be underestimated despite his low combat level, due to his magic attack having a flat 1 in 3 chance of hitting the player successfully[1] and a staggering max hit of 25.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

If you are a low level and want to avoid damage, you can run away from him and attack with ranged or magic; this way he won't be able to hit you if you keep your distance.

For this method, it is advised to bring a few energy potions.

Another approach is to use freezing spells on him and attacking him with ranged or magic. This same method works also for stunning him or the use of the Snare or Entangle spell.
