The Culinaromancer is one of RuneScape's strangest characters. According to legend, this evil mage draws his power from food.
A hundred years ago, the Culinaromancer was a cook in the Lumbridge Castle for the Duke. He used the exotic and esoteric foodstuffs to which he had access to improve his magical power. In the quest Recipe for Disaster, he was sealed away by one of the Lumbridge Castle cook's forefathers when he threatened to destroy a council that gets together for a feast every ten years. Eliminating the secret council would have been the first step in his plan for world domination.
The Culinaromancer is the last of bosses in Recipe for Disaster. In combat, he primarily attacks with magic, which can hit into the high 400s, and a weaker, rarely used melee attack that hits up to 114. The former of these attacks can be very dangerous as he can kill most players in a few hits if the player wears metal armour. Wearing armour with high magic defence will help immensely, since he almost never uses anything other than magic, and his melee attack is comparatively weaker. It is a good idea to try and kill the Culinaromancer quickly. When he is killed, food spins out of his head and the player is teleported back to the dining room.
The name Culinaromancer is a combination of the words culinary and mancer, meaning "one who divines from food".
The Gypsy tells the player, "Just as an Oneiromancer draws magical powers from dreams, or a necromancer draws their strength from the energies of the dead, a Culinaromancer uses food as a source of magical powers."
When the Culinaromancer dies, food like cakes explode out of his body onto the ground and comes with pick up option, but you always get teleported back before you get the chance to get your hands on one.
It is unknown what type of cakes these are, or if they heal lifepoints or are even edible (can be eaten and is therefore treated as food).
It could be said that the Culinaromancer has a sense of humour due to his bosses parody many previously seen bosses in other quests.
