Cooking is a very easy skill to train; it is also very interesting. It allows you to cook many types of meats, fish, wine, cakes and more! Also, upon achieving level 99 in this skill you could get yourself a cool purple cape and an awesome emote. This guide will show you what food to cook, where to cook the food, how to get food, how much experience you will earn per hour, and other tips on how to raise your cooking skill.


Levels 1-10

Method 1: Collecting Raw Chicken and Beef

Cooked MeatWelcome to your cool new skill, Cooking! This section will show you what to cook until you reach level 10. You should already have a whopping 70 XP from Tutorial Island, so let's get started. Firstly, you could do a few things. One of them is complete the quest, Cook's Assistant. Upon completion of the quest you will be granted 300 Cooking XP. This will raise your level to 4, meaning you will burn less food. Remember, you don't have to do that quest, but it's there if you need that extra XP. The next part of this section is the cooking part. If you are in Lumbridge, go to the chicken area and collect raw chickens that are on the floor. To the east of the chickens is a cow field. Collect raw beef. Below is a map of where you will be collecting your food, and where you could cook it if you want to complete Cook's Assistant Quest. You need to collect 65 pieces of food. If your have done the quest, that will be a bit less, around 55 raw pieces of food.

The chicken and cow farms

When you have a full inventory, go to the Lumbridge Castle or the cooking pot inside the house that is near the chicken pen. Cook the food on the Cook's range. This special range will help you burn less food, but you can only use it if you have completed the Cook's Assistant Quest. If you haven't completed that quest, you will need to find a fire to cook on. Each chicken or beef gives 30 XP each, so before you know it, your Cooking level should be 10! Congratulations!

XP per raw chicken or beef: 30
XP needed for level 10 (from level 1): 1,084
Amount of chicken or beef needed for level 10 (with Cook's Assistant): 65, (55)

Levels 10-25

If you're level 10, you're probably eager to increase your Cooking level to cook even better, more exciting food. These are the fast ways to go about this:

Method 1: Collecting Raw Beef and Chicken

Cooked MeatThis method is identical to the last, except now you will burn less food! To collect the raw food, refer to the map above. Once you have your raw food, you can cook it on the Cook's range if you have completed the Cook's Assistant quest. You'll need to collect around 350 raw beef and chicken to get to level 25. The exact number is 223, but remember you will still burn lots of food. Using the Cook's range will help minimize burning.

XP per raw chicken or beef: 30
XP needed for level 35 (from level 10): 21,252
Amount of chicken or beef needed for level 10 (with Cook's Assistant): 350

Method 2: Making Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggsScrambled Eggs provide good XP for low level P2P cooks. They require level 13 cooking to make, and give 50XP per bowl of eggs. Scrambled Eggs can be made totally free in a complete POH kitchen that stocks bowls, eggs in the teak larder, and has a range. This is how to obtain the ingredients:

Egg - Eggs are obtained from the Lumbridge chicken pen or can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest or in Rellekka.
Bowl - You can get bowls from General Stores and from the Culinaromancer's Chest.

Once you have those ingredients, follow these instructions to make scrambled eggs:

  1. Withdraw 13 bowls and 13 eggs, or take them from your larder.
  2. Use your eggs with the bowls.
  3. Cook the eggs on a range.

From level 13, which is required to make the eggs, you'll need to make 120 of them. However, because you may burn the eggs, 160 bowls of eggs is a good number. Remember to use the Cook's Range in Lumbridge to help you burn less food!

XP per scrambled eggs: 50
XP needed for level 25 (from level 13): 21,252
Bowls and eggs to collect: 160

Method 3: Fishing or Taking Trout or Pike

TroutPikeFor this stage, you will be cooking trout, and you'll need level 15 Cooking. What you will need to do is this: go to Barbarian Village, which is west of Varrock. Follow this map to get there if you are unsure.

Fishing location in barbarian village

Enter yourself into a highly populated world, such as worlds 1, 3, 5, or 7. Once you enter these words, begin to say: "taking free raws", or pick up any fish that players may drop. However, if you plan on fishing your raws, you will need feathers and a fly fishing rod. Both can be bought in Port Sarim or the Catherby fishing shop for a small price. This method of obtaining your own fish is faster and much more reliable. When you have a full inventory, run north into Edgeville. Bank your raw fish, and then run back to Barbarian Village. This technique can also be done in Lumbridge, but you are less likely to encounter fishers. You will only need about 120 pieces of trout to achieve level 25 Cooking. The exact number is 78, but remember, you could burn. To minimize burning, use the special range in Lumbridge.

XP per trout: 70
XP needed for level 25 (from level 15): 5,431
Amount of trout needed for level 25 (from level 15): 120

Levels 25-40

You can do two things for these levels.

Method 1: Making Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggsUntil level 40, scrambled eggs will be slow XP. It is recommended you only cook this food until level 35, because then you can cook pizza and wine at level 35 which is much faster XP. Scrambled eggs only need two ingredients to make, and how to get them is shown below:

Egg - Eggs are obtained from the Lumbridge chicken pen or can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest.
Bowl - You can get bowls from General Stores and from the Culinaromancer's Chest.

Like before, once you have those ingredients, follow these instructions to make scrambled eggs:

  1. Withdraw 13 bowls and 13 eggs, or take them from your larder.
  2. Use your eggs with the bowls.
  3. Cook the eggs on a range.

To reach level 40, you'll need to make exactly 588 scrambled eggs. However, you'll burn quite a few bowls of eggs, so getting ingredients to make 620 is recommended. Nevertheless, if you're only raising it to 35 so you can cook pizza and wine, you'll only need 292. This number should be taken up to 330 in case you burn too many.

XP per bowl of scrambled eggs: 50
XP needed for level 40 (from 25): 29,382
Scrambled eggs needed for level 40 (from level 35): 620
Scrambled eggs needed for level 35 (from level 25): 330

Method 2: Making Pizza

Plain PizzaThis is quite a fast method for earning cooking XP, in both P2P and F2P! You need level 35 cooking to do cook pizza. This is how to obtain the ingredients:

Buckets of water - Buckets can be bought from General Stores and filled with water from any water source, like a sink or fountain.
Flour - Flour can be obtained in the Port Sarim grocery store and the Culinaromancer's Chest. One of the best ways to obtain flour is by using empty pots on the flour sacks in the Sinclair Mansion. This gives very fast flour, and barely takes any time at all to get.
Tomato - Tomatoes can be bought from the Port Sarim grocery store, or from the Culinaromancer's Chest. It can also be found in the Bandit Camp in the wilderness.
Cheese - Cheese can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest and found in the wilderness Bandit Camp. It can also be found in Aggie the witch's house in Draynor.

Once you have those ingredients, do this to make a pizza:

  1. Get 14 pots of flour and buckets of water in your inventory, and use them with each other. Then choose to make pizza bases.
  2. Once you have made enough bases, withdraw 14 of them and 14 tomatoes. Use the tomatoes on the bases.
  3. Withdraw 14 half made pizzas, and 14 bits of cheese. Use the cheese with the half made pizzas.
  4. Get 28 uncooked pizzas and cook them on a range.

XP per plain pizza: 143
XP needed for level 40 (from 35): 14,818
Pizzas needed for level 40 (from level 35): 140

Method 3: Making Wine

Jug of WineMaking wine is very good experience, up there with the best in the whole of RuneScape. This is how to obtain the two ingredients:

Grapes - Found in the Cooks' Guild or the Phoenix Gang hideout. They can also be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1gp each.
Jug of water - Jugs can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest or General Stores for 1 gp each. They also respawn on the second floor of the Cooks' Guild. Fill it up at a fountain or sink.

Once enough ingredients have been obtained, this is the fastest method for making the wine:

  1. Fill jugs with water, and withdraw 14 from your bank.
  2. After obtaining grapes, withdraw 14 from your bank.
  3. Move one of the jugs of water or grapes to the bottom of your inventory, next to the opposite ingredient.
  4. Use the grapes with your jug of water until there are no more left.
  5. Put everything in your bank.
  6. Wait 15 seconds for the wine to ferment, and voila, 200 cooking XP!
  7. Repeat.

There is no specific amount of XP that can be earned while doing this, as your technique may vary. Also, it is unlikely you will have enough ingredients to make wine for a whole hour, but in an hour you will get 375,000 cooking XP! For level 40, from level 35, you only need around 80 grapes and jugs of water. The exact amount is 75, but sometimes your wine will go bad.

XP per jug of wine: 200 XP
XP needed for level 40 (from 25): 14,818
Amount of wine needed for level 40 (from level 25): 75
XP earned per hour making wine: 375,000 XP

Levels 40-50

At a level like 40-50, you're starting to get into cooking lobsters. These won't be very useful to you at this level, because you will burn too many. Using these methods will help you get lots of XP.

Method 1: Baking Cakes

CakeMaking cakes can give some good experience for somebody who is levels 40-50 Cooking. This is how to obtain the ingredients to make a cake:

Cake Tin - Cake tins can be bought from the General Store in Ardougne and found in the Cooks' Guild.
Pot of Flour - Flour can be obtained in the Sinclair Mansion in Ardougne by using a pot with the flour sacks. Another way is use wheat with the windmill and collect the flour with a pot.
Bucket of Milk - Milk can be obtained by milking a dairy cow. A dairy cow can be found in the Lumbridge cow field. Milk can also be bought in the Culinaromancer's Chest.
Egg - Eggs can be found in the Lumbridge chicken pen, or bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest.

Another thing to remember, if you have a complete kitchen with a teak larder in your POH, you can make unlimited cakes free of charge! Once you have those ingredients, you need to do the following to make a cake:

  1. Withdraw your cake tin into your inventory.
  2. Withdraw 9 eggs, 9 pots of flour and 9 buckets of milk.
  3. Cook your uncooked cakes

To be exact, you need 357 cakes to reach level 50, but that should be made up to around 450 incase you burn any.

XP per cake: 180
XP needed for level 50 (from level 40): 64,109 XP
Amount of cakes needed for level 50: 450

Method 2: Making Wine

Jug of WineWine is still a good option even though it was used in the last section. The wine may sometimes go bad, but not as much as you burn food. This is how to get them:

Grapes - Found in the Cooks' Guild or the Phoenix Gang hideout. They can also be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each.
Jug of water - Jugs can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each. They can also be bought from General Stores. Fill it up at a fountain or sink.

This is how to make wine very fast, minimizing time:

  1. Fill jugs with water, and withdraw 14 from your bank.
  2. After obtaining grapes, withdraw 14 from your bank.
  3. Move one of the jugs of water or grapes to the bottom of your inventory, next to the opposite ingredient.
  4. Use the grapes with your jug of water until there are no more left.
  5. Put everything in your bank.
  6. Wait 15 seconds for the wine to ferment, and voila, 200 cooking XP!
  7. Repeat.

If you want to get level 50 Cooking from level 40, you need to make 400 wines. The exact number is 350, but some may go bad. It's better to be safe than sorry.

XP per jug of wine: 200 XP
XP needed for level 50: (from level 40): 64,109 XP
Amount of wine needed for level 50 (from level 40): 400
XP earned per hour making wine: 375,000 XP

Levels 50-70

If you're between the levels of 50-70, new fish like lobsters and swordfish can be cooked without too much burning. These few fast methods should make sure you reach level 70 in a minimal amount of time.

Method 1: Roasting Lobsters

LobsterLobsters are a good fish for cooking. They give 120 XP each, and can be bought and sold at basically the same price. There are two ways to obtain these fish.

A) Get the fish yourself. The fish can be fished in a variety of locations. They can be caught from these locations:

(i) Catherby. This is beyond the White Wolf Mountain and is the most common place to catch lobsters for members. Bank or cook your fish to the west.

Catherby fishing area

(ii) Musa Point. You need 30gp to get on the Island. However if you have a Ring Of Charos (a), you can get to Musa Point for free. You could Falador teleport if you wish to bank your fish quickly.

The Musa point docks

(iii) The Fishing Guild. This require level 68 Fishing to enter, or 65 with a Fishing Potion. The "F" and "Y" docks are the fishing spots. There is a range here, but it is recommended that you bank your fish first, then cook them.

The fishing guild

B) Buy the fish yourself. This is much faster although you will lose money in the process. Lobsters can be bought raw in World 1 for 230 GP each (1/6/07) and sold cooked for 200-220gp each. See the World One Trading guide for a detailed explanation.

Overall, you need 5,303 Lobsters to get to level 70 Cooking. Making that number closer to 6,000 would be a much safer bet incase you burn lots of Lobsters. Those can be all bought for around 1.3M (1/5/07), or fished for free. Another thing to note is this; if you have completed the Family Crest quest and chose the Cooking Gauntlets, you will not burn lobsters at level 68 cooking.

XP per cooked lobster: 120 XP
XP needed for level 70 (from 50): 636,294 XP
Lobsters for level 70 cooking (from 50): 6000
XP earned per hour: 140,000 XP

Method 2: Making Wine

Jug of WineDespite wine has already been mentioned several times, it is still a very good method for XP, and it will continue to be until level 70! This section will tell you how many you need and the XP given. Also a small note on powercooking is given. The usual ingredients are needed, grapes and a jug of water. Incase you don't already know, this is how to obtain them.

Grapes - Found in the Cooks' Guild or the Phoenix Gang hideout. They can also be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each.
Jug of water - Jugs can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each. They can also be bought from General Stores. Fill it up at a fountain or sink.

Once you have those, follow this to make wine fast:

  1. Fill jugs with water, and withdraw 14 from your bank.
  2. After obtaining grapes, withdraw 14 from your bank.
  3. Move one of the jugs of water or grapes to the bottom of your inventory, next to the opposite ingredient.
  4. Use the grapes with your jug of water until there are no more left.
  5. Put everything in your bank.
  6. Wait 15 seconds for the wine to ferment, and voila, 200 cooking XP!
  7. Repeat.

That method for making the wine is fastest and will maximize XP. You need to make around 3,250 wines to get to level 70. The exact number is 3,182, but sometimes you may make one or two bad wines. That's 3,250 grapes and jugs of water overall.

XP per jug of wine: 200 XP
XP needed for level 70 (from level 50): 636,294 XP
Amount of wine needed for level 70 (from level 50): 3,250
XP earned per hour making wine: 375,000 XP

Levels 70-85

You are up there with the best chefs in RuneScape, and that is something to be proud of. These next few tips for raising your level will help you reach 85.

Method 1: Roasting Lobsters

LobsterLobsters are now a very good way to raise you level for one main reason. That reason being if you have the Cooking Gauntlets from the Family Crest quest, you will not burn any lobsters now. In fact, you will stop burning them at level 68 with the gloves! This means now you will have an exact number to cook. Use the tips above for methods to obtain the fish. But first, you need to know how many lobsters you need to cook to reach level 85. The number is 21,009. If you have cooking gauntlets, there is no need to get extra lobsters because you won't burn anything!

XP per cooked lobster: 120 XP
XP needed for level 85 (from 70): 2,520,967 XP
Lobsters for level 85 cooking with cooking gauntlets from 70 (without Gauntlets): 21,009 (21,400)
XP earned per hour: 140,000 XP

Method 2: Making Wine

Jug of WineWine is, still, extremely good experience, even at levels like 70! All it requires are grapes and a jug of water, which can both be bought extremely cheaply. This is how to get the ingredients:

Grapes - Found in the Cooks' Guild or the Phoenix Gang hideout. They can also be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each.
Jug of water - Jugs can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each. They can also be bought from General Stores. Fill it up at a fountain or sink.

When you have those, this method for making the wine is fastest, because you are filling your inventory with ingredients.

  1. Fill jugs with water, and withdraw 14 from your bank.
  2. After obtaining grapes, withdraw 14 from your bank.
  3. Move one of the jugs of water or grapes to the bottom of your inventory, next to the opposite ingredient.
  4. Use the grapes with your jug of water until there are no more left.
  5. Put everything in your bank.
  6. Wait 15 seconds for the wine to ferment, and voila, 200 cooking XP!
  7. Repeat.

This is a really easy, simple, cheap and fast way to level your cooking. You will rarely make any wine go bad at this level. Now for the important part of the section, how much you will need and the XP per hour. The exact amount of wine needed is 12,605, but that should be up to 12,670 incase any goes bad.

XP per jug of wine: 200 XP
XP needed for level 85 (from level 70): 2,520,967 XP
Amount of wine needed for level 85 (from level 70): 12,670
XP earned per hour making wine: 375,000 XP

Method 3: Making Pizza

Plain PizzaPizza is a fun and effective way to level cooking. One of the possible problem could be there are lots of ingredients. This is how to obtain them.

Buckets of water - Buckets can be bought from General Stores and filled with water from any water source, like a sink or fountain.
Flour - Flour can be obtained in the Port Sarim grocery store and the Culinaromancer's Chest. One of the best ways to obtain flour is by using empty pots on the flour sacks in the Sinclair Mansion. This gives very fast flour, and barely takes any time at all to get.

Meat - Obtained by killing chickens or cows and cooking their raw bodies.
Anchovies - You can fish these with a net in Al Kharid and the wilderness Bandit Camp.
Pineapple slices - Obtained by picking a pineapple on Karamja and using a knife with it, then selecting slices.

Once you have enough of those, this is the fastest way to make those pizzas:

  1. Get 14 pots of flour and buckets of water in your inventory, and use them with each other. Then choose to make pizza bases.
  2. Once you have made enough bases, withdraw 14 of them and 14 tomatoes. Use the tomatoes on the bases.
  3. Withdraw 14 half made pizzas, and 14 bits of cheese. Use the cheese with the half made pizzas.
  4. Add meat, anchovies or pineapple slices if you wish. This will get you more XP.
  5. Get 28 uncooked pizzas and cook them on a range.

That method should ensure the fastest XP is earned. For level 85, you need to cook 17,630 plain pizzas to get to level 85. Remember it's an exact number because you won't burn any. You'll need around 13,500 pineapple pizzas, 14,000 anchovy pizzas and 15,100 meat pizzas. You may burn those sometimes.

XP per plain pizza: 143 XP
XP per meat pizza: 169 XP
XP per anchovy pizza: 182 XP
XP per pineapple pizza: 195 XP
XP needed for level 85 (from level 70): 2,520,967 XP

Anchovy pizzas needed for level 85 (from level 70):
14,000
Pineapple pizzas needed for level 85 (from level 70): 13,500

Levels 85-99

This is the final stretch to level 99, starting at 85. These techniques will ensure the fastest and easiest ways to 99, and some very cheap methods, too!

Method 1: Roasting Lobsters

LobsterUntil level 94 where you can cook sharks without burning them, lobsters, with monkfish, are the best fish to cook. If you need to know how to obtain them, refer to the levels 50-70 earlier in the guide for tips. As you can already successfully cook every lobster without burning any, all you need to know is the amount you need to cook to reach level 99. This may seem like a rather daunting number, but 81,466 is the amount of lobsters needed to reach 99 from 85. Remember that buying raw lobsters and selling them cooked will help you get there so much faster than obtaining 81,446 lobsters yourself.

XP per cooked lobster: 120 XP
XP needed for level 85 (from 70): 9,775,837 XP
Lobsters for level 99 cooking from 85: 81,446
XP earned per hour: 140,000 XP

Method 2: Cooking Monkfish

MonkfishCooking Monkfish is another good option for reaching level 99 as well as lobsters. You will stop burning Monkfish at level 90 with Cooking Gauntlets; without them you will cease to burn them at level 92. You can purchase these fish in world 2 Falador, or you can fish them using a fishing net if you have completed the quest Swan Song. To reach level 99 from 85, you need to cook 65,173 monkfish.

XP per cooked monkfish: 150 XP
XP needed for level 99 (from 85): 9,775,837 XP
Monkfish for level 99 cooking from 85: 65,173

Method 3: Making Wine

Jug of WineWine is a powerful way to level cooking extremely fast, extremely cheaply! All you need to make wine are grapes and jugs of water. The problem is grapes are very hard to obtain. You can get them fast by world hopping near the Culinaromancer's Chest. This list tells you where to obtain the ingredients:

Grapes - Found in the Cooks' Guild or the Phoenix Gang hideout. They can also be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each.
Jug of water - Jugs can be bought from the Culinaromancer's Chest for 1 gp each. They can also be bought from General Stores. Fill it up at a fountain or sink.

Once you have as many of those as you need, this is the fastest way to transform those ingredients into wine.

  1. Fill jugs with water, and withdraw 14 from your bank.
  2. After obtaining grapes, withdraw 14 from your bank.
  3. Move one of the jugs of water or grapes to the bottom of your inventory, next to the opposite ingredient.
  4. Use the grapes with your jug of water until there are no more left.
  5. Put everything in your bank.
  6. Wait 15 seconds for the wine to ferment, and voila, 200 cooking XP!
  7. Repeat.

You need to make 48,880 jugs of wine from level 85 to reach 99. Wine will never go bad at this level, so predicting the amount needed is much easier. This information should be helpful:

XP per jug of wine: 200 XP
XP needed for level 99 from 85: 9,775,837 XP
Amount of wine needed for level 99 from 85: 48,880
XP earned per hour making wine: 375,000 XP

Method 4: Cooking Sharks - Only at Level 94+

SharkFirst of all, despite you can cook sharks much earlier than this, you will burn so many. At level 94, if you are an owner of the Cooking Gauntlets obtained from the Family Crest quest, you will not burn any sharks what so ever, making this the best XP out there! It is not recommended that you cook sharks without the gauntlets, because you will burn them, even at level 90! Sharks give 210 XP each, 10 more than wine, and they are much easier to obtain. You can get them in Falador, world 2. See the World 2 Trading guide for more information. To get to level 99 from 94, you need to cook 24,238 sharks.

XP per cooked shark: 210
XP needed for level 99 from 94: 5,089,817
Sharks needed for level 99 from 94 (with cooking gauntlets): 24,238

You can only access this chest upon completing the subquests in the Recipe for Disaster quest. This is what the food section of the Chest looks like.

The culinaromancer's food chest

You're probably have lots of raw fish, but there's nowhere to cook it. Well here there will be a list of good places to cook your food. There will be a list or pros (good things) and cons (bad things) about each location.

The Lumbridge Cook's Range

This range requires the completion of the quest Cook's Assistant.

The lumbridge cook's range

Pros

  • The special range helps you burn less food.

Cons

  • You need to climb lots of stairs to get to and from the bank.
