The Gourmet impling is an Impling that can be caught in the Impetuous Impulses minigame, and are located throughout Puro-Puro and Gielinor. It is caught with either a normal or magic butterfly net equipped and an empty Impling jar in the player's inventory with 28 Hunter, or 38 Hunter barehanded. Capturing a Gourmet impling will grant the player 22 (if caught on Puro-Puro) or 24 (if caught on RuneScape) Hunter experience.
When the gourmet impling is finally caught, the player can either free it from the Gourmet impling jar, which will leave an item behind, or trade it to Elnock Inquisitor for special items. The player can either get 3 Impling jars for one Gourmet impling or, with 3 Baby implings and 2 Young impling, can get a can of Imp repellent, or alternatively can trade 3 Gourmet implings with 2 Earth implings and an Essence impling to receive a magic butterfly net.
