It’s time to sharpen your cooking skills in the Absolute Taste event! Gather up ingredients to craft the most delicious dishes. Make sure you balance out all the flavors perfectly as each meal will be judged by Chef Gourdon Ritzy. If he likes what he tastes, you’ll advance your Chef Grade! Earn Absolute Taste Coins to spend in the Spoon 'n' Pantry coin shop!

Prepare the Pantry

Players Lv. 33 and above can begin by accepting the quest from the event notifier on the left side of the screen, or by speaking to NPC Chef Gourdon Ritzy, located in most major towns. Select the Absolute Taste UI from the event notifier on the left side of the screen to decide what to cook first.

Before you can start cooking the recipe, you need to gather your ingredients! Hunt monsters within your level range (20 levels below and 20 levels above) and collect the Ingredient Boxes they drop. You’ll receive different Ingredient Boxes based on which tier of recipes you’re working on. Open the Ingredient Box to receive one random culinary ingredient for that tier. Note that the ingredient you get will disappear if you change which tier you're attempting.

Once you have everything you need, you’re ready to cook!

Now You’re Cooking with Gas

In order to whip up a dish, open the Absolute Taste UI from the event notifier on the left side of the screen. Select the meal you want to cook, and attempt to create the perfect flavor by carefully adjusting the types and amounts of the ingredients you add.

Once the meal is ready, click ‘Evaluate’ to let Chef Gourdon Ritzy know that it’s ready to taste! You can also click ‘Keep’ to put the food into your Use tab to consume later.

Chef Gourdon Ritzy will sample your dish and give it a star rating from 1 (“Insulting!”) to 5 (“Perfect!”). Aim for a perfect 5 star review! Each time you cook up a dish for the first time, you’ll receive EXP and Absolute Taste Coins (x10).
