Cooking Guide for Dragonflight
This page covers the most important aspects of Cooking in Dragonflight, including talent builds and suggestions on how to make gold with the profession.
Cooking in Dragonflight
Cooking makes stat-boosting food, such as Fated Fortune Cookie, feasts that can be used by a full raid group, such as Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak, and fun food such as Churnbelly Tea.
Dragonflight introduces Crafting Specializations, but Cooking unfortunately does not have any, making it one of the simplest professions.
Best Class for Cooking in Dragonflight
Due to its high world material requirements, Cooking pairs well with farmer characters, such as Guardian Druid and Beast Mastery Hunter who have Skinning and will naturally be killing beasts that drop many of the materials needed. Characters dedicated to Fishing will also be able to help with Cooking materials.
It also goes well on Pandaren characters due to their high racial bonus and combat benefit of having double stat food bonuses, but for the most part you will want to have it on whatever character(s) you play the most.

The most important source of Cooking skill is your profession level, which is increased by performing difficult crafts.

Best Cooking Specializations and Talents in Dragonflight
Cooking has no Specializations.
Making Gold with Cooking in Dragonflight
Ideally, Cooking allows you to convert cheap meat and fish into expensive stat food, feasts, and fun food. Due to food's commodity nature it is very likely that the market will quickly get loaded with foods that are only marginally more expensive than the materials used to create them.
