Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling Cooking.
Learning Draenor Cooking
Go to Draenor and kill humanoid mobs until you get [The Joy of Draenor Cooking]. This scroll will teach you Draenor cooking and a few basic recipes.
Leveling 1 - 75
- 1 - 20
30 x [Grilled Saberfish] - 75 Crescent Saberfish Flesh
While making these, you have a chance to discover new recipes randomly from 12 recipes. You can find a list of these recipes at the next step.
- 20 - 50
You probably discovered all 12 recipes from making the previous dish. But the important thing is to have at least two recipes that gives the same secondary stat buff. If you don't have two from the same group, you can simply make more [Grilled Saberfish] until you discover the recipe you need.
As you can see, I grouped the recipes below based on secondary stat gain. All of them have two version, one you can cook with fish, and one with meat. It's important to make recipes from the same secondary stat group because you will use these recipes later.
Choose two recipe from the same secondary stat group and craft 15-15 from each. You can mix it up, like make 10-10 from one group and 5-5 from the other.
[Skulker Chowder] - 10 x Jawless Skulker Flesh
[Clefthoof Sausages] - 5 x Raw Clefthoof Meat
- Critical Strike 1 (old Multistrike)
[Fiery Calamari] - 10 x Fire Ammonite Tentacle
[Rylak Crepes] - 5 x Rylak Egg
- Critical Strike 2
[Grilled Gulper] - 10 x Abyssal Gulper Eel Flesh
[Blackrock Ham] - 5 x Raw Boar Meat
- 50 - 75
You will still make the recipes from the previous step, but now you will get 9-10 dish instead of 4 because you have higher cooking skill (50). Same rules apply as before, craft another 20-20 from any of the previous recipes from the same group.
The reason I had to separate this into two parts is because if you started with making 35 from one then 35 from the other, then you would get like 150 from one dish and 350 from the other one. But this way you will get about the same number of dishes from both, which is important because you will need them both to cook the next recipe.
It's not important to reach 75, you can go to the next step.
75 - 100
These are the recipes below that you discovered from making the previous dishes:
- 75 - 95
Use all the dishes you made between 20-75 to make 35 from any of the recipes above.
You will need 35 from one of these herbs: Fireweed, Nagrand Arrowbloom, Frostweed, Gorgrond Flytrap, Starflower, Talador Orchid. (depends on which two recipes you chose previously)
It's not important to reach exactly 95.
- 95 - 100
Getting skill points from the previous recipes are pretty rare at this point, so I recommend making 5 or more from one of the following:
- 5 x [Feast of the Waters] - 50 Sea Scorpion Segment, 50 Abyssal Gulper Eel Flesh, 50 Blind Lake Sturgeon Flesh, 50 Fat Sleeper Flesh, 50 Fire Ammonite Tentacle, 50 Jawless Skulker Flesh
- 5 x [Feast of Blood] - 50 Raw Elekk Meat, 50 Raw Boar Meat, 50 Raw Talbuk Meat, 50 Raw Riverbeast Meat, 50 Rylak Egg, 50 Raw Clefthoof Meat
(you should have discovered both of these by now)
