Cooking in Runescape is a very important skill. It will buff up your firemaking skill if you use the tinderbox and logs to make your cooking fire, as well as upping your woodcutting skill if you are using this method (to get logs). Cooking skill will make you less likely to burn the food you are attempting to prepare and it will be a great boost to your hitpoints if you eat it in a battle to keep yourself from dying. Knowing how to cook the foods in Runescape, plus the experience you’ll get, the hp it will create, and basic help in Runescape cooking is always a good idea. Below is the unofficial Brighthub Runescape Cookbook.
