Cooking is the act of preparing food with the application of heat.
Benjamin Sisko enjoyed cooking, and liked to prepare his food in traditional ways, for example going as far as obtaining a real word burning stove for his house on Bajor, something of a rarity in 2376. When Sisko was spending time with the Prophets his wife Kasidy Yates considered taking up cooking, feeling Sisko's elaborate kitchen was going to waste. (DS9 novel: Avatar)
Cooking is the art of food preparation, presentation and the ability to create complex dishes beyond that of a normal household meal. Usually, those who are proficient in this craft are sous chefs or master chefs, but others have also been known to refine the art of cooking for their own personal tastes. Abigail Hunkel's long history as a shop-keeper and home owner has made her a veteran in the kitchen, and she is responsible for continuously preparing meals for the ever-growing roster of the Justice Society of America. Oliver Queen, while not a master chef, is known for his creativeness in the kitchen, particularly when it comes to his infamous extra-spicy chili recipe. Allegedly, Ollie's chili is so hot that it even gives the Martian Manhunter fits of anxiety.  Alfred Pennyworth is a classically trained chef and always brings an expertly prepared plate of food to his master Bruce Wayne. More often than not however, Bruce is heavily involved in his dual identity as Batman and has little time for anything but the simplest of repasts. Many cooks however, delight in crafting fresh, invigorating variations on old-style classic dishes. No one has ever passed up a second slice of Ma Kent's rhubarb pie.

The Cooking skill is used to prepare raw food materials for a number of reasons, including restoring Hitpoints and the temporary boosting of skill levels. There are many different types of food in RuneScape, each healing a different amount of Hitpoints. However, as with all skills, players must reach certain levels to cook certain foods. Cooking is also a very popular skill to raise, as many players like to sell food they have cooked to other players. This can give great profit, as many players are willing to purchase food already cooked. Cooking also has a larger variety of training options than any other skill. This is another reason Cooking is a very popular skill amongst players. As of 17 January 2010 there are 100,158 players with 99 cooking. This makes it the second most popular 99 skill, after Strength.The current minimum requirement to be ranked (at rank 2,000,000) on the hiscores for Cooking is level 54.
Cooking is known as one of the fastest skills in RuneScape, as players can cook in different ways. Players can cook their food on a fire, an iron spit, a sulphur vent, a fireplace or on a range. Ranges are labelled on the map as a cooking pan () icon. It is important to note that only meat, fish, stew, and tea can be cooked on a fire.
To cook, players have to use their food with a range or a fire. If they have more than one food item of the same kind in their inventory, a menu will ask them how many items they want to cook. Players aiming to achieve level 99 Cooking by buying uncooked foods should be aware that it will cost from 3.5 to 10 million coins. (Note: As long as you don't give up on cooking, 99 cooking will come in no time)
There are many items that players need in order to cook food, such as water or flour. Listed below are the items needed to cook certain kinds of food.
Players can obtain meat from killing chickens, cows, bears, yaks, and giant rats. When a player cooks raw chicken, the name becomes cooked chicken. However, when a player cooks raw beef, raw bear meat, or raw rat meat, the name becomes cooked meat for all three kinds. If meat is used on the fire after it is already cooked, it will become burnt and a message will say, "You deliberately burn the nicely cooked meat." This yields no Cooking experience. Raw and cooked meat may also be purchased at the Grand Exchange in Varrock.

Fish are the most common food to cook in RuneScape due to its availability. They heal a great amount of Hitpoints and are the recommended food to eat during combat. Fish can be easily obtained from fishing, or bought in large amounts from other players. Many players who are power-levelling use high-level fish to gain maximum experience per hour.

To make bread, players need to first make flour, which is then used with a jug of water or a bucket of water to make the dough. The dough can only be cooked on a range, not on a fire. When the dough is baked, it becomes bread.
|Bread||1||40||5||Mix water in some flour and create bread dough, then cook it on a range.|
|Pitta bread||58||40||Cannot be consumed||This dough is members only. It is used to make ugthanki kebabs.|
Pies require two bites to be fully consumed, thus giving players a bit more health than other foods. For example, when a player eats a redberry pie, they will only eat one half of it. The other half will stay in the dish which can be consumed later. To make pie, players need to mix a Pot of flour and water together and then make some pastry dough. Players then need to use the dough with a pie dish. Then, the player can put in extra ingredients to make them heal more, such as meat to make a meat pie. When they are finished putting in the ingredients, the pie can then be baked.
|Redberry pie||10||78||10 in two bites||Redberries are needed to make this pie. Redberries can be bought from Port Sarim's food store, or they can be picked up from their respawns south of Varrock. Members can grow their own.|

To make stew, players need a bowl and some cooked meat or cooked chicken. Next, the bowl has to be filled with water. Potatoes are needed next. They can be found around the farms near Draynor Village and Lumbridge or members can grow potatoes themselves. Members can also buy potatoes from Hudo's Grand Tree Groceries in the Grand Tree or from Frenita's Cookery Shop in Yanille. Players then have to add the cooked meat and potatoes to the bowl of water and then cook the bowl to make stew.
|Stew||25||117||11||To make Stew, players must put cooked meat and a raw potato in a Bowl of water.|
|Spicy stew||25||117||11||This stew is members only. However, players need to complete Evil Dave's part of the Recipe for Disaster quest. To make this stew, players need to add several spices to a regular stew. Each spice affects a different set of skills, raising or lowering them, although certain spices show a correlation to the group of skills they change. For more information see temporary boosts.|
|Curry||60||280||19||This stew is members only. To make curry, players need to use either spice or add three curry leaves (grown using the farming skill) before cooking the stew. Spices can be bought or stolen using the Thieving skill in Ardougne's market or bought from the Culinareomancer's Chest.|
Many players like to use pizzas to heal themselves as they heal large amounts of Hitpoints. Pizzas are a very famous choice to slayers because of the amount of hitpoint they heal but mostly because of the time they need to consume, which is less than normal food. Like pies, pizzas are consumed in two bites, so that players can eat one half and save the other half for when it's needed. To make a pizza, mix flour with water and make a pizza base. Add a tomato and a slice of cheese on the base. Both a tomato and a slice of cheese can be taken from Aggie the Witch's house in Draynor Village, north of the bank; and also in the Bandit Camp (Wilderness). They can also be bought from the food store in Port Sarim and the Culinaromancer's Chest. When the tomato and cheese are added to the pizza base, the pizza must be baked. It is possible to add various toppings to the pizza after baking it, which is also a popular money-making method for players, although it may offer relatively slow experience. Pizzas are very useful for skills such as agilty because of the great loss of hitpoints, therefore it heals a lot in 2 bites.
|Plain pizza||35||143||14 in two bites||This is a pizza with only tomatoes and cheese.|
|Meat pizza||45||169||16 in two bites||This is a pizza with meat added on it. To make a meat pizza, players need to cook a plain pizza first, then add a piece of cooked meat on top of it. Meats include Chicken, Cow, Bear or Rat meat.|
|Anchovy pizza||55||182||18 in two bites||This is a pizza with anchovies added on it. To make an anchovy pizza, players need to fish some anchovies, cook them and then add them to the pizza.|

The pineapple can be cut into chunks or slices with a knife.|
Cakes require three bites to be fully consumed, so if a player clicks on a cake, they will still have two other pieces left. To make a cake, players need flour, an egg, milk, and a cake tin. Eggs are found near the chicken coops around Lumbridge, while milk can be obtained by milking dairy cows with a bucket. Dairy cows are found near the combat level 2 cows around Lumbridge, and also on a farm south of Falador, which also houses a churn. When all of these items are placed in the cake tin, the cake can be cooked on a range. Please note that unlike pies the cake becomes separated from the cake tin when cooked, therefore players will usually have 14 uncooked cakes in their inventory when cooking, and after cooking the rest of the inventory will be filled by empty cake tins.
|Cooked fishcake||31||100||11||This cake is members only. To make it, players have to have completed the Pirate Pete section of the Recipe for Disaster quest. The ingredients needed to make this cake are: ground cod, ground kelp, ground giant crab, and breadcrumbs. To make these items ground, use them with a pestle and mortar.|
|Cake||40||180||12 in three bites||To make this Cake, Mix flour, an egg and some milk together in a cake tin. Then cook the Cake by using it with a Stove. It can also be bought from the Cook in Ardougne market (or stolen).|

Chocolate bars can be taken from their respawn in the cooking guild or bought from Port Sarim's food store, the Culinaromancer's Chest (after starting Recipe for Disaster), or Hudo's Grand Tree Groceries. One slice of this cake can also be bought from the cook in Ardougne market (or stolen).|

Wine is made from a jug of water and a bunch of grapes. Grapes can be found in the Cooking guild, In the Phoenix Gang's hideout, as a common drop from Guards, or stolen from Fortunato's Fine Wine in Draynor Village (level 22 Thieving required, members only); members who have completed a portion of Recipe for Disaster can obtain grapes from the Culinaromancer's chest. A jug can be found on the top floor of the cooking guild.
Use the grapes with the jug of water to make unfermented wine. About ten seconds later, the wine will ferment and either be drinkable, or go bad. Wine gives 200 experience for a good jug, and none for a bad jug. If you make the maximum amount of jugs in one trip (14) successfully,you will get 2800 experience.
|Jug of wine||35||200||11||Lowers attack when consumed|
|Jug of bad wine||35||0||0||Lowers attack when consumed|
The only hot drink is nettle tea, which is members only. To make nettle tea, players need first a bowl of water. Next, nettles are needed. Nettles are located near the prison along the road between the Wizard's Tower and Draynor Village, south-east of the slayer master in Canifis, or next to the yew trees in Edgeville. It is important to note that nettles will hurt players when they pick them up, so they have to wear gloves. The nettles have to be used with the bowl of water to make nettle-water. The nettle-water next has to be boiled on a range to turn it into nettle tea. The tea can then be placed into an empty cup. Empty cups can be bought or stolen from the tea stall in Varrock or by speaking to Brother Galahad, located east of the coal trucks. Also, if a player wants to add milk to their tea, they can obtain some milk in a bucket and use it with the tea. Adding milk is optional.
|Nettle tea||20||52||3||This tea is members only.|
Brewing is much more complicated and time consuming than other foods, but the results are quite useful, for most of them boost assorted stats.
Note: The contents of the vat will change colour as the fermenting progresses.
Head to the brewery and put four of the apples in the nearby cider barrel. The players' character will do a nice dance and squish the apples to a pulp, making a bucket of apple mush. Use empty buckets on the apple barrel to get 4 buckets of mashed apples. Once all 4 buckets are filled, add them to the fermenting vat, then the ale yeast into the fermenting vat and wait.
Note: Remember, you do NOT need to put in water or barley to make cider.
With normal brewing, a player can randomly make matured ale, shown by a (m) next to the drink. Matured ale is slightly stronger than normal ale.
Add "The stuff" after the barley and before other ingredients and yeast. If the player try to add it after the other ingredient or after the yeast, it's too late, and will be told he or she can't add that to this vat.
Occasionally ale will become bad, wasting all that time. Drain the vat and try again.
|Cider||14||182||2||See instructions for making above. Increases farming level by 1, decreases attack and strength by 2.|

See the following articles
Burning can occur when cooking , especially when cooking something you have the exact level requirements for. As you increase your cooking level beyond the required level for that particular food, you will burn less and less until, with some foods, especially lower to mid level foods you stop burning entirely at a specific level. Other than increasing your cooking level, there are other methods of decreasing the chance of burning while cooking.
The information on the Cooking gauntlets is based on statistical data and has not officially been proven by Jagex
This is where players don't speak to anyone and have no distractions. This reduces the time to cook things thus gaining cooking level up faster. However, players will have no breaks so it is somewhat hard to keep cooking after a long time. Instead of dropping burnt food, which takes many clicks, simply bank them. Dropping individual items takes a long time, so it isn't good to do, even if they are not power-cooking. After having cooked everything, just take the burnt items of food out of the bank (noted) and drop them. Most power-cookers go to the area underneath the bar in Burthorpe, called the Rogue's Den. This is because the perpetual fire is only 1 to 6 squares away from the bank, as the banker is able to move around the Rogue's Den but he tends to stay in one place unless talked to. The bank isn't a normal bank, its a man named Emerald Benedict. This is the shortest distance to a fire anywhere. The shortest distance to a range is in the cooks guild although the downside of this is that the player must have completed Varrock Achievement diary completely. Players normally buy raw fish in large quantities and cook them, then resell to the Grand Exchange.
In Tibia besides killing frenzy of hundreds of innocent orcs, dragons and demons each login day, exists also elements of roleplaying in some player's works. Here you can cook your breakfast and take it on a long expeditions, but be aware of hungry thieves!
To cook bread you need wheat, first, harvest wheat at a wheat field. You can harvest wheat by cutting it with a scythe. After attaining wheat, find a millstone (usually around farms) and grind it into flour. Bring the flour to a portable containment of water, such as a trough or a bucket — the latter is usually preferred as buckets are portable. You can collect water by using the container on a body of water, or a well. Having dampened the flour, you should now have a lump of dough. Put this on an oven or another heat source (such as a coal basin) to bake the bread.
To make the chocolate cake you need to use a lump of cake dough on bar of chocolate to get a lump of chocolate dough . Than just use it on some fire source like oven to get a delicious chocolate cake.
