This was Jagex's 100th quest released, and is the longest and one of the hardest. It is a continuation of Cook's Assistant quest, the first one released by Jagex. It's split into lots of subquests after the initial short quest. These vary in difficulty, from very easy to pretty darn challenging. I'll deal with each subquest individually. Once you've done the first quest bit you can do any of the subquests in any order you want, except for the final part which you can only start once you've finished all the miniquests. There are different rewards for each quest, with the main rewards being the armoured gloves available to purchase in the Culinaromancer's chest. The way it is designed is that more gloves and cooking related weapons are available when you've completed more of the subquests. Very clever on Jagex's part, tricky to explain. Got all that? Good, let's get started.
 Part 1: The Cook
- Level 10 Cooking
Fruit blast (you must make this yourself. You can't buy it. Sorry). Ashes. Eye of newt. Greenman's Ale (buy from the Yanille pub). Rotten tomato (buy at the duel arena or near a pillory).
Talk to the cook in the Lumbridge castle kitchen. Agree to help him with his little predicament (about to become a very big one). Gather all the items listed above (make a dirty blast by adding ashes to a fruit blast that you've made). Give them all to the cook. Congratulations! You've completed the extremely ardous (not) first part of Recipe for Disaster.
- 1 Quest Point
- An Invitation to a feast
Watch the totally awesome cutscence by going through to the dining room. Once it's all over chat to the gypsy then examine all the frozen characters one by one.
 Part 2: The Dwarf
- Fishing Contest
Ice gloves (make the quest a lot easier), a few hundred gee pee, bucket of milk, flour, egg, bowl of water.
The gypsy will tell you that the dwarf likes rock cakes (who doesn't? well, okay me) and that you should go speak to his father under the white wolf mountain. But before you rush over there go downstairs into the Lumbridge kitchen cellar. See the pretty looking chest in the north-east corner? Walk up to it, right click and explore all the options. This is probably the main reward device. Now buy all the required items that you can from the food part of the chest (cake making stuff). Take a bowl of water from the table and fill it up with water.
Now, teleport to Falador. Head into the pub and chat to the bartender. Talk to her about dwarven recipes and pay her 200gp when she asks for it (if you have a ring of charos(u) you can get it for free by charming her pants off (not literally)). Buy about 5 asgarnian ales off her while you're there and use your pile of coins on each one in turn to put a coin in it and make it appealing to dwarves.
Head off to the passage under the white wolf mountain and talk to the old dwarf in the room full of tables and dwarves stouts (he's called Rohak). He won't give you the recipe so you'll have to get him drunk (i'm sure Jagex are setting a bad example to children here...anywhoo). After a few of those golden asgarnian ales he'll get pretty drunk and he'll agree to give you the recipe in return for some money (100gp).
Give Rohak all the cake ingredients and he'll make a lovely rock cake for you. However, it is very hot! So you must be wearing some kind of gloves (preferably ice gloves) to pick it up. You now need to cool it down. This can be done in a number of ways. If you picked it up with ice gloves it'll cool down automatically. If you kill an icefiend on top of the ice mountain it's dying breath will cool the cake down. Alternatively you can just wait until it cools down, but this can take quite a while. Take the cake back to the dwarf in the Lumbridge castle and use it on him. Well done, you've done one part of many!
- 1 Quest Point
- 1000 cooking xp
- 1000 slayer xp
- Increased access to the Culinaromancer's chest Note: This last reward applies to every subquest, and basically means one more armoured glove type and cooking related weapon has become available for you.
 Part 3: The Goblins
- Goblin Dimplomacy
Spices, fishing bait, an orange, one dye (purple, blue or green, easiest way to obtain them would be to buy them in the clothes shop in Lleyta, otherwise make them), knife, bread, bucket of water, charcoal
Examine the frozen goblins and have a chinwag with the Lumby cook. Amble off to the Goblin village, it's north west of Falador. Chat with the Goblin generals to absolutely no avail. Have a chat with some of the goblins wandering around and they'll tell you to talk to the village chef. He will tell you he needs some charcoal, so give 'im some. Watch the pretty funny cutscene, and then the chef will be happy. He'll tell you what he needs to make the meal. Surprisingly enough, it's a big compromise.
The orange slices can be obtained by using a knife with an orange. Then use one of the previously mentioned dyes with them. To get spicey maggots get some spice from Ardougne market, steal it or buy it. Use the spices on some normal fish bait (available at any good fishing shop near you). To get the bread just use a bucket or jug of water on a loaf of bread.
Once you've got all the ingredients bring them back to the cook in the goblin village, and he'll make a slop of compromise. Looks lovely doesn't it? Take the slop to the goblins to free them.
