Cook is one of the few Crafting skills that don't actually require you to have a Manual. There is 2 parts to cooking, the Primary Ingredient and a Secondary Support Ingredient. For the most part you can put any item that is stackable and not edible into the Primary Ingredient Slot. The Primary Ingredient is the most important this determines exactly what you're cooking, (Ex. if your Primary Ingredient is Stem of Radish the result will always be a Radish regardless of what you put into the Secondary Ingredient Slot)
The Quantity you use of the Primary Ingredient also determines the quantity of cooked product you get. (Ex. if your Primary Ingredient is 150 Stem of Radish you'll always make 150 Radish if you're cooking is successful)
The Secondary Ingredient Slot can be left empty and still successfully cook an item, but for the most part it's used to raise the success rate. The higher the sellback value of the Secondary Ingredients the higher the success rate. It seems to be a 100% or 0% chance for cooking. Meaning if you Cook multiple times with the same ingredients the result will always be the same.
If you're primary ingredient is 150 Chicken Feather and your secondary ingredients sellback value is below 100 cegel you will fail 100% of the time. If the Sellback is 100 Cegel or above you will make 150 Meat 100% of the time.

Similar to Cook, except your primary ingredient is something edible, and you more or less just improve it.
Gourmet Cooking an item raises the HP and or AP it gives upon consumption. It also lowers the cool down time so you can consume your potions/food nearly instantly.
One difference between Cook and Gourmet Cooking is that your Secondary ingredients can not simply be anything you want, and you require dishware (Bowl, Plate, Ample, Paper Bag) which is purchasable from any Street Merchant.
The following things were copied from a forum about cooking:
I. Getting the Cook Gourment Food skill
Talk to Geoffrey in Zaid. Choose fourth choice (Advance skill) then first choice (Cook Gourment Food). Max this skill to be able to craft all the recipes. Note : Each recipe also has a character level limitation
II. Basic of Cooking Gourment Food
Same as cooking skill, open your skill window(Alt+K), then click on the skill (third skill from right). Cook window will then appear. Drag your first item to the white coloured box, then a list of needed ingredient will show up at the grey boxes. Fill all the ingredients, and you ready to cook. Click "OK" to begin.
III. The Difference From Cooking
This skill has different chance of success than cooking skill, since the ingredients are fixed. Like cooking skill, if you put much recipe and fail, you'll lose them all together, so it's better to cook one by one (though its so boring). From my experience, the success rate is about 50%. Honestly, I can't find the good of making gourment food except for FUN. Don't be dissapointed with the food effect you got ^^.
Update : You can increase success rate by adding more ingredients.
IV. Cook Gourment Food Tips
As I noticed before, you can add more ingredients to get better success rate, but more ingredients will result in more cegel right? So here's some trick: it is also useful if you find it really hard to obtain 1 ingredient, but really easy to obtain the other one.
Usually a recipe has more than one ingredient, you actually don't have to add all the ingredients with same amount. For example, if you find it difficult to obtain Flame Stone, just put it one for make some recipe (eg. use only 1 Flame Stone to cook 50 Gold Carp). But as you use less amount of ingredients than the amount of recipe, the sucess rate will be very low! You can increase it by adding other ingredients more than the recipe.
I'll give you example (tried 4 times and succeeded 3 times):
50 Gold Carp Pastry Recipe : 50 Gold Carp Ingredients : - 1 Flame Stone - 5 Wheat - 300 Egg Output : 50 Paper Bag
V. Gourment Food VS Super Potion
With this skill you can cook 2 different things, first is the food itself, second is super potion. Why super? Because those potions heal the same amount of HP/AP as regular potions, but the cool down time is almost none. So with these pots you can restore your HP/AP very rapidly, perfect for PvP. Too bad the ingredients are hard to get and the creation is not easy too.
Note: All the output item can be purchased from potion lady (which sell potions, darts, firecracker, etc).
VII. Collecting Ingredient Tips
You may find some ingredients are really unfamiliar, yes those are not monster drops. You can get them by collecting from rocks/trees (using collect skill). Here are some places where you can get them. I put a screenshot for each item, but you can also hit nearby rock/tree, they ussually drop same items.
These items are pretty rare to drop, you need to be patient to get them. If the rock/tree is still red, keep hitting it until it "breaks". It is similar to killing bale, you need to "kill" it first so it will drop item. Tree and rock also has spawn rate, usualy it will re-spawn after you finished breaking 1 or 2 other resources.
- Clean Water, used for making catfish and mudfish soupGo to north of Lime, find tree which covered with snow.
- Flame Stone, used for making many recipe.Go to south of Zaid, hit the first rock you find.
- Compression Bandage, used for cooking Liver. Go to Temple of Adel/Adel Monastery, then follow the south path.
- Cocoon, used for cooking Pea, Go to Temple of Adel/Adel Monastery, then follow the north path. Pass the bridge and go on a little bit. You'll find a place with Kickboxer and Worm-O
