There are only two ingredients that you can prepare beforehand, so stock up. The first is Chilled Meat, which drops off of just about any beast in Northrend. If you’re level 80, you probably have a stockpile of this somewhere. If not, go farm for about ten minutes and you’ll probably have a stack. The other is Rhino Meat which, unsurprisingly, drops from rhinos. Train up how to cook Northern Stew and Rhino Dogs, and you’re good to go.
Head down underneath Dalaran and start looking for carrots. If you’re an herbalist, this quest will be extra simple for you, as the Crystalsong Carrots will show up when you use your herb-tracking ability. If you’re not an herbalist, just look for the sparkles. Once you’ve got all four carrots and four pieces of Chilled Meat in your inventory, find a cooking fire and use the Cookpot in your inventory. Go talk to Ajay Green in the sewer inn and get your reward – just over five gold, a Dalaran Cooking Award, and a Small Spice Bag, which can contain an additional Dalaran Cooking Award, special recipes, Old Spices, Baby Spice and Northern Spices.
Cheese for Glowergold
This quest is very convenient, as you don’t even have to leave Dalaran to complete it! Go around Dalaran looking for sparkling Half Full Dalaran Wine Glasses, which are usually on top of tables in the inns. Once you’ve found all six, head over to the cheese shop “One More Glass” next to the Sunreaver’s Sanctuary and pick up the Aged Dalaran Limberger, which can spawn on any table or crate inside the shop. Combine them all with the old shield (Ranid probably won’t notice!) and take the completed platter to Ranid Glowergold inside the leatherworking and skinning supply shop.
Convention at the Legerdemain
Remember the “One More Glass” wine shop you were sent to for the quest above? That’s the same shop you need to visit to find your Jug of Wine. Combine it with four Northern Stew (cooked, one Chilled Meat per stew) and you’re on your way. Head over to Arille Azuregaze in the Legerdemain Lounge, which is the neutral inn directly across from the “One More Glass” shop.
Infused Mushroom Meatloaf
Head down into the sewers and find some mushrooms. These are scattered around on the ground everywhere in the sewers, so keep looking until you have four of them. Combine them with two Chilled Meats over a cooking fire, and then bring them to Curiosities & Moore, which is across from the Fountain and Marcia Chase.
This is the only daily quest that you have to go specifically hunting for the meat component to the recipe, requiring four Rhino Dogs, which are cooked with Rhino Meat. It’s best to keep a stash of this on hand so you don’t have to go out of your way when this daily quest pops up. I wouldn’t suggest skipping this daily, however, because instead of just one Dalaran Cooking Award as a reward, this quest gives you two! You could potentially earn three from this, if you’re lucky enough to find a Dalaran Cooking Award in your Small Spice Bag. The only other thing you need to complete this quest is four Wild Mustard, found inside Dalaran wherever there is grass. For Alliance characters, the Beer Garden behind A Hero’s Welcome is a good place to find this, but you could also go inside Runeweaver Square or Krasus’ Landing if you wish. Put your Rhino Dogs and Wild Mustard into your Empty Picnic Basket and bring this up to Archmage Pentarus at Krasus’ Landing.
Now that you’ve got the basics on cooking and fishing quests, go forth and complete your achievements, earning ten points each for Our Daily Bread and Chasing Marcia. Well worth it, when you combine it with the gold and other various rewards you come across!
