Cooking[edit | edit source]
Early levels can be skipped by completing quests that give Cooking experience. Completing Gertrude's Cat and Cook's Assistant as well as the Mountain Dwarf and Goblin generals subquests of Recipe for Disaster will grant a total of 3,825 experience, which will get the player up to level 18.
To start off, the player can buy raw sardines from a fishing shop in Port Sarim or Witchaven and cook them on a fire. Continue by catching and cooking raw trout and salmon until at least level 58 Fishing. The best place to fish is in Shilo Village, which has bank nearby and the fish can be later cooked in the Rogues' Den or in the Hosidius kitchen. Another option is to fish in Barbarian Village, which has an everlasting fire near the fishing spots, however players will need to cook the fish on the spot and drop them.
3-tick Barbarian Fishing with a knife (eating roe/caviar) will provide passive Cooking experience, however none will be obtained if dropping the fish. If fishing for food instead (such as karambwans or minnow), cooking fish obtained will easily grant the player more than enough Cooking experience.
Starting at level 40, players with 33 construction (boostable) can build an oak larder, which provides an infinite amount of cooking materials to bake cakes. It is very click intensive, however 500 cakes can be cooked per hour. They can be cooked using a range in the player-owned house, or one right outside the portal such as in Rimmington or Hosidius. This provides 50,000 experience per hour at level 40 and 70,000 experience per hour at level 60. While using the larder, the number keys can be held down while clicking once per tick to retrieve the supplies quickly.
At level 65, players can make servery pineapple pizzas in the Mess. Players need to have at least 45% Hosidius favour for this method. This method does not require any supplies and can yield around 150,000–200,000 experience per hour depending on efficiency, however this is very click-intensive. Hop worlds after serving each load to maximise experience gain.
To stock up on food, from level 65 fishing onwards raw karambwans can be caught and cooked after completion of Tai Bwo Wannai Trio yielding karambwans, a food that heals 18 hitpoints per item and can be used for tick-eating.
High-level players can kill Zulrah or Vorkath for grapes, which can be made into jugs of wine. Jugs of water can be obtained by buying empty jug packs from the Culinaromancer's Chest and using Humidify to fill them with water. Players stop creating jugs of bad wine when they reach 68 Cooking.
