'It looks as though you have strayed a little ways from home, Man, and you want to learn to cook up some tasty meals?

'I'd prefer swinging a hammer, but if you prefer a pan, who I am to judge?

'You want to speak with Esilia near the oven. She has offered to teach all newest cooks the basics.'


Cooking is an especially important profession -- ask any hobbit -- that can take a significant amount of time to master. Every true cook starts with the basics, and this introduction to the fine art of cooking will provide you with everything that you need to become a true master of the pot and pan.
