Cataclysm Classic Cooking Leveling Guide

Welcome to the World of Warcraft Cataclysm Classic Cooking leveling guide. This guide will help you level your Cooking profession from 1 to 525 by providing you the best recipes and materials to craft using the latest Auction House prices. You can use the controls below to customize the guide to your liking.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please let me know on Discord or Twitter. I'm always looking for ways to improve the site and make it more useful for you. If you like the guide, please consider sharing it with your friends or guildmates <3

I strongly suggest stopping at 425 since Catacylsm will have much cheaper recipes for 425-450 bracket for most of the professions.
