NOTE: This article is about the skill. See Cooking for Dummies to learn to cook. See the Cooking Guide for strategies on creating Cooking Recipes. See tale9/Cooking_Recipes for information on Tale 9 Base Pairs.

The cooking skill permits you to cook meals in a Kitchen that is equipped with an Iron Cookpot. Level 0 allows you to cook meals with one ingredient-pair. Each subsequent level allows for an additional pair, up to 7 pairs at level 6.

IMPORTANT: Please eat sink food before you eat any other meal to help preserve the potency of other ingredients.

For Tale 10, Good Eats has settled on Mutton and Oil as Sink Food. Both should be readily available to everyone. Ratio of ingredients does not matter as long as they are not equal, so e.g. 69 Mutton and 1 Oil is just fine for 10 servings of Sink Food. This pairing as the added benefit of giving +Dex, so it is fine/encouraged to eat as much as you want to drive up potency of other ingredients.
