Official difficulty Special
Description The cook in Lumbridge has a surprisingly small number of ingredients to hand in his kitchen, possibly as a result of an endless stream of newcomers with light fingers taking anything that isn't nailed down from his kitchen.

Luckily, in the past a kind Cook's Assistant was willing to help him in his culinary duties, but now a problem has appeared that could spell... a Recipe For Disaster!

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!

The Cook will tell you that he needs a newt's eye, a Greenman's ale, a rotten tomato, and a dirty blast in order to prepare for the centennial feast. If you ask him how to make a dirty blast, he will tell you to add ashes to a fruit blast. He will give you 100 coins to buy everything, and he will allow you to keep the change.

Gathering the ingredients

You can buy an eye of newt from herblore shops.

Greenman's ale is sold in Yanille at the Bar for 10 coins.

You can buy a rotten tomato for one coin at the Duel Arena or from the crates near the pillory cages in Varrock, Seers' Village, or Yanille.

Ironmen can make a fruit blast at the Gnome Stronghold. Go to the cocktail bar (where Hudo is, in the north-west corner of the 1st floor of the Grand tree) and pick up the Cocktail shaker spawn on the table. Buy 2 Lemons, 1 Pineapple, and 1 Orange from Hudo, then run over to where Heckel Funch is (in the south-east corner) to find a Cocktail glass spawn. Mix the Cocktail shaker. Use your Knife on your remaining Lemon and Slice (not Dice) it, then use your Cocktail shaker again to create your Fruit blast. Alternatively, players can choose to receive a Fruit Blast when handing in their digsite exam certificates to the Curator Haig Halen in Varrock after completion of The Dig Site.

It is possible to buy one on the Grand Exchange, as long as it isn't a Premade fr' blast. Use the ashes on the fruit blast to get a dirty blast.

Once you have all 4 items, give them to the Cook.

Congratulations! Quest complete! (for now...)
