Chefs can learn these types of recipes:

Recipes require ingredients which are purchased from vendors, gathered, looted, or crafted. Some food may only be obtained during special events or festivals. The full list may be found here.

For desserts and meals from rating 100 onwards, recipe sheets for feast versions of them can be made in the Mystic Forge. Feasts are items that, when placed in the world, grant a food buff to all who interact with them.


At Master rank, chefs can craft gifts that are used in the Mystic Forge to craft special weapons.

Seafood Dinners[edit]

  • Aside from a handful of collection items, up until the End of Dragons Expansion in 2022, there were no fish-related recipes or ingredients for Chef. This was because Linsey Murdock hoped to introduce them alongside a fishing activity. As of 2016 there were however no plans to add fishing to the game.[1]
