Recipe for Disaster (also known as Rfd and Rd) is the 100th quest released by Jagex, and is composed of 10 subquests. The subquests range in difficulty from easy to very hard. Jagex had wanted it to be a quest where nearly any member can start it, but only the best players will be able to complete the quest.

Almost all members may attempt to solve his tricky predicament, and be rewarded accordingly, but only the very elite of Questers will be able to put an end to his problem permanently!

Another Cook's Quest

Subquests 2 to 9

The Secret Council

The Council frozen in time

The frozen Council.
  • A cutscene ensues, where the Duke will get a visit from the Mysterious Old Man and will leave the room to deal with it. Osman will then get taken away by Evil Bob.
  • At this point, you enter the room. A short while later, the Culinaromancer crashes the party and starts to attack everyone at the dining table with magic spells.
  • Luckily, the Gypsy from Varrock (who arrives late to the banquet) enters the room and casts a spell to freeze everyone in time (except you and her). (Although the banquet attendees and the Culinaromancer are frozen, you will be able to enter and exit the dining room at will.) You learn the Culinaromancer was a cook in Lumbridge a hundred years ago.
  • To protect each member of the council from the Culinaromancer's spell, you must feed each of them their favourite food. After you give each member his favorite dish, Gypsy teleports him away to safety and tells you how many more council members are left to protect. The Gypsy and Cook will both be there to help you.
  • You can complete these subquests in any order and start as many of them at a time as you want. Each subquest gives 1 Quest point and opens up further access to the Culinaromancer's Chest. In addition to this, there are additional experience rewarded depending the subquest.

Freeing the Council members

There are nine council members you must save from the Culinaromancer:

Trivia

A player making the Futurama reference.
  • In the first cutscene, Duke Horacio and Osman appear to have a random event featuring the Mysterious Old Man. After Duke Horacio is abducted, the Dwarf Guard says to Osman "something has to be done about that old man". Furthermore, once Osman has also been abducted, the Dwarf comments on the rarity of witnessing two random events in a matter of seconds.
  • When informed by Gypsy Aris that the universe could be destroyed, the player exclaims, Not the whole universe! That's where I keep my stuff! This is a reference to the animated comedy series Futurama. The original quote came from the cartoon series "The Tick". Interviewer: Well, can you... blow up the world? Tick: Egad. I hope not. That's where I keep all my stuff.
  • The 3 monkeys during Awowogei's subquest are a reference to the 3 Wise Monkeys, who can see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.
  • The names of the final bosses are a play on words of some foods and certain quest bosses:
  • The quest point requirement used to be only 175. It was increased to 176 after the Unstable Foundations tutorial update, which gave an extra quest point upon completion.
  • The cook, after telling you about defeating the Culinaromancer, says, "Did you ever know that you're my hero?" This is a reference to Bette Midler's "Wind beneath my Wings".
  • The song Chef Surprize was available to people who did not start the quest after a glitch involving the Pest Control Update. This glitch was later fixed.
  • When you attempt to release Pirate Pete, the gypsy exclaims "Wait a moment, my gypsy-sense is tingling..." This is a reference to Spiderman.
  • When asking the Lumbridge Cook for help on a section of the quest you didn't start yet, the gypsy will stop you, saying that it will make a time paradox if they don't talk to her about it first.
  • It has always been possible for players with 1 defence to complete the sub-quests up until they have Mithril Gloves. However, a recent change to the quest Monkey Madness means that players with 1 defence can now return to Ape Atoll. This subsequently allows those players to complete the sub-quest Freeing King Awowogei and obtain up to Adamant Gloves, providing they have 48 Agility and 70 Cooking, Or 65 with a Chefs delight (M).
  • Players can unlock the track 'Too Many Cooks' before it is time to save Mudknuckles by climbing down the ladder and walking towards the Goblin Cook in Goblin Village.
  • Originally it was impossible for a player to retrieve his items if he died during the final boss battles. On 16 June 2009 an update changed it so that your items would appear by the portal.
  • There is a cookbook entitled Recipes for Disaster.
