The starting point of the quest, the Cooks' Guild.

The quest can be started by speaking with the Head Chef of the Cooks' Guild. Located in Varrock, the guild can be found west of the entrance to the Varrock Grand Exchange.

After hearing about the player successfully assisting the Lumbridge cook in baking a cake, the Head Chef asks the player for help in making a new type of cake.

Making the cheesecake[edit | edit source]

To start off, the chef will require some ingredients for the cheesecake. He gives the player cheesecake ingredients, a sheet of paper listing the items needed in order to make the cake. The first item on the list is cream cheese, which can be obtained from Phil and Delphie in Falador, just south of the party room. After speaking with Phil and Delphie, they will ask the player to repair their dairy churn using logs and a steel bar. After repairing the churn, talk to them again and they will require some milk in order to make the cream cheese. Then you can use the churn to make the item.

The next items on the list are a pot of cream and biscuits. Pots of cream may be purchased at shops or may be made by using a dairy churn with a bucket of milk. Biscuits can be made by combining a pot of flour and pat of butter to make biscuit dough, which then can be cooked on a range.

The last listed ingredient is a cake tin which can be found at the Cooking guild.

After bringing the Head Chef all the ingredients, he will ask the player to create the cheesecake with love and care. This can be done by clicking on the cake tin and creating the cheesecake. He will compliment it and ask the player to take it to 3 members of Cooks, Apprentices and Kitchen Experts Society listed on the cheesecake delivery list.

Delivering the cheesecake[edit | edit source]

delivering the cheesecake to the Lumbridge cook.

The first member, Mess Sergeant Ramsey, can be found east of the Taverley lodestone, inside The Pick and Lute pub.

The second member, the Lumbridge cook, can be found inside the Lumbridge Castle.

The third member, the cook of the Jolly Boar Inn can be found in the Jolly Boar Inn, to the north-east of Varrock.

Each member will state the cake is odd, but delicious. Return to the head chef once all members have been visited.

Congratulations, quest complete!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When the Head Chef reveals to the player his plans for cheesecake, the player's confusion and having to break down the chef's words is a reference to the comedian Peter Kay, and his sketch on party foods including cheesecake.
  • When the Head Chef provides the quest background about the CAKES looking for a new leader after a messy "incident" with a wild pie (with no lasting injuries), it is a references to the "pie incident" in the film, American Pie (1999).
  • The Head Chef asks the player to retrieve cream cheese from Phil and Delphie, a word-play reference to Philadelphia Cream Cheese and the popular Kraft Recipe for Philadelphia Classic Cheesecake.
  • Mess Sergeant Ramsey's exclamation that "It's raw!" is one of Gordon Ramsay's reactions on TV cooking shows. He is known for shouting out similar reasons why the meals he is presented are of poor quality.
  • After the quest players can suggest new cheesecake flavours to the Head Chef. One option is raspberry, which the head chef thinks is a mispronounciation of redberries, although raspberries did exist in-game as an ingredient in the preparations for the Gielinor Games.
  • The Head Chef's exclamation about liking the "buttery biscuit base" of the cheesecake is a reference to a mashup of a scene from MasterChef that gained popularity in 2011, released by Swedemason.
  • This quest was created as part of a GameJam project. [1]
  • This quest was the first to introduce a use for flavoured milk outside of the player-owned farm.
  • The "Yes Chef!" dialogue at the end of the first conversation with Head Chef is almost certainly an homage to the Brit Com "Chef!" starring Lenny Henry, in which the line appeared frequently.
