In Burning Crusade Classic you can skill from 1-40 with Spiced Bread (60 Conventional Flour, 60 Mild Spices) and then switch to the following step from 40.

You get the recipe from WoW Allianz Drac Roughcut in Thelsamar (Loch Modan) or WoW Horde Andrew Hilbert in Silverpine Forest.

Visit your trainer and learn Gekochte Muscheln, then go to Darkshore or Ashenvale to Zoram Beach and farm Verkrusteter Gezeitenkriecher and other Sea Creatures.

First, cook 30 Gekochte Muscheln, the recipe turns green at 110 – after that, you cook Crab Cake until 130. Gekochte Muscheln (1x Muschelfleisch, 1x Erfrischendes Quellwasser) Krebsküchlein (1x Kriecherfleisch) You can find Muschelfleisch if you open Kleine rankenfüßige Muschel.

The Erfrischendes Quellwasser is sold by most Innkeepers.

WoW Allianz Alliance players should buy Rezept: Gekochte Krebsschere from Kendor Kabonka in Stormwind, because when farming the Meat above there will drop a lot of  Kriecherklaue. You can buy Rezept: Seltsam schmeckendes Omelett aswell.

With Skill 125 you can get the next rank! To become an Expert in Cooking, you need to be Level 20 and have Skill 125. Then you can buy Expertenkochbuch from WoW Allianz Shandrina in Ashenvale or WoW Horde  Wulan in Desolace.

Time to become an Artisan with finishing a quest! You have to finish the quest Diese Quest ist zu erledigen! Clamlette Surprise, which you only get with level 35+ and Skill 225.

To finish it, you need the following materials and we recomment to get them before you travel to Gadgetzan:

Both quests lead to Dirge Quikcleave in Gadgetzan. Hand him over the materials and he trains you Cooking (Artisan).

If you can buy some of the meat cheap at the auction house, you can easily cook them until 285.
