Detailed WalkthroughEdit

The BackgroundEdit

Fara, owner of Fara's Hole in the Wall in Sadrith Mora and Dinara Othrelas of Ald'ruhn have an annual cookery contest and it seems Fara wants an edge this year. Big Helende at Dirty Muriel's Cornerclub in Wolverine Hall asks you to steal the book Redoran Cooking Secrets from Dinara Othrelas at the Llethri Manor in Ald'ruhn, Manor District.

Stealing the Redoran CookbookEdit

The book can be found in Dinara's bedroom in the Private Quarters of the Manor (northern-most bedroom), in a locked chest (50). There's no one around so it's a simple matter to steal the book. You can also receive the book by raising Dinara's disposition to 95 or higher and then asking her to give it to you (she's near the entrance).

A Recipe For SuccessEdit

You can either take the cookbook directly to Fara or return to Helende instead. If you go straight to Helende she will reward you with a Quality Potion of Shadow. Either choice gives you the faction reputation and disposition rewards.


  • Speaking with Dinara about Redoran Cooking Secrets after finishing this quest will lower her disposition by 10 if her disposition is greater than 20.
