Chef's Assistant is a short to medium length novice quest and is a sequel to Cook's Assistant. To start the quest, the player must talk to the Head Chef in the Cooking Guild.

During and after completing the quest, players will be able to make various cheesecakes, that restore both life and Prayer points.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

The starting point of the quest, the Cooks' Guild.
Items needed: Chef's hat unless the Hard Varrock achievements have been completed (members may use a sous chef's toque, cooking cape or max cape instead)

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]

Location of Phil and Delphie
Items needed: 1 logs, 1 steel bar, 1 bucket of milk, 1 pot of flour, 1 pat of butter (or an extra bucket of milk), 1 pot of cream (or extra bucket of milk), and 1 cake tin

To start off, the chef will require some ingredients for the cheesecake. The first item 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. A bucket of milk can be easily obtained from the milk seller at the mansion near Seers' Village. Then, with a bucket of milk you can use the churn to make the item. If you brought extra buckets of milk to make a pat of butter and/or a pot of cream, you may do it now (take care in the diary churn interface to make just one of each).

Return to the head chef and he will ask you for a pot of cream and biscuits, he will also give you a cheesecake ingredients list. Pots of cream may be purchased at shops or may be made by using a dairy churn with a bucket of milk. A pot of flour can be purchased by members from Romily Weaklax who is right beside the Head chef. 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 (two are available on the second level). A pat of butter can be made in a dairy churn with 38 Cooking, purchased from the Culinaromancer's Chest after partial completion of Recipe for Disaster, or bought from the Grand Exchange. Alternatively, you can talk to the Head Chef again, who will give you a pat of butter for 50 coins.

The last listed ingredient is a cake tin which can be found upstairs at the Cooking guild, or bought from the Grand Exchange.

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 selecting the "Mix" option 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!

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 11 March 2019 (Update):
    • During Chef's assistant, cheesecake connoisseurs will no longer take bites out of whole cheesecakes, if an already-nibbled cheesecake is in your inventory.
  • patch 18 February 2019 (Update):
    • Phil and Delphie will have something to say once the post quest content is completed after the new Chef's Assistant quest - they were oddly quiet beforehand.

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 this out when presented with poor quality cooking, along with other catchphrases for other meals.
  • 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]
  • 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.
  • When the quest was first released, it was impossible to talk to Phil and Delphie after quest completion as there was no post-quest dialogue initially made for them. This was fixed in a subsequent update.
