    Efficiently co-levelling a Cook and a Farmer

    Here is an efficient way to level (or more precisely "tier") a cook/farmer combination.  What's efficient for you may be different.  For me, money was no issue (Total cost was under 900s for the farmer, 6g500s for the cook).  I tried to minimze time as reflected in the total number of recipe invocations (3,000 (including harvests) for the farmer, 1,700 for the cook).  Total time around 13 hours.

    Note that tiering a farmer is much slower than a cook.  When you plant, harvest, and process, you get no Craft XP for the harvesting.  When I tried planting more than 8 fields at a time, some would disappear before I could harvest them, and harvesting requires an interaction for each field.  Once you have the ingredients, a cook can run off hundreds of items, stopping only when the tools need repairs.  Farmers get fewer Craft XP per item, and the same Craft XP for all things at the same tier.  After you make the things needed to support the cook tiering, you can make a pile of whatever you like to tier the farmer.

    Farmer production varies a lot.  Although there is an average harvest per field at each tier, it may produce much more or only one.  What I show below is the number of items you need to produce for the cook, not the number you plant.  Fortunately, the mats are cheap and can be purchased, so if you need more you can plant more.

    For cooks, recipes T6 Supreme and above are mostly dropped.  You will need to find a T7 Westfold Bowl of Spring Water Recipe and a T8 Eastemnet Crumbs Recipe.  They are generally available in the AH (except at the very moment you need them, plan ahead!).  You can barter skirmish marks for a T7 Westfold Cook's Adorned Scroll Case or T8 Eastemnet Cook's Scroll Case, which may contain the needed recipes. The other recipes are basic or purchased from NPC cooks/farmers.

    During the T3 Expert tier for both cook and farmer (and other professions), when you reach Expert Proficiency, you must stop and do some quests to reach the T4 Artisan tier.  You can get the quests from the farmer/cook NPCs.  They will send you to Michel Delving.  Do the farmer first, because you will need Artisan strawberries to complete the cook's quest. After the quests, you can continue with the Expert tier.

    Here's the plan:

    Apprentice Farmer
    75 Fresh Carrot
    224 Mushroom (Used by Master Cook)

    Apprentice Cook
    75 Cooked Carrot

    Journeyman Farmer
    210 Bunch of Oats
    95 Tater (Used by Artisan Cook)

    Journeyman Cook
    105 Bowl of Oatmeal

    Expert Farmer
    174 Green Onion (79 for Expert Cook, 95 for Artisan Cook)
    Miscellaneous things during the quests
    2 Bunch of Strawberries for cook after reaching Artisan.

    Expert Cook
    79 Bowl of Hearty Stock
    78 Beef Stew (you'll make one more in cook's quest)

    Artisan Farmer
    Nothing specific needed from this tier, grow anything

    Artisan Cook
    95 Bowl of Chicken Stock
    95 Stew of Kings

    Master Farmer
    282 Golden Shire Tater (112 for Master Cook, 170 for Westfold Cook)

    Master Cook
    112 Bowl of Beef Stock
    112 Cream of Mushroom Soup

    Supreme Farmer
    300 Bundle of Mint Leaves

    Supreme Cook
    300 Bowl of Water

    Westfold Farmer
    340 Bunch of Leeks

    Westfold Cook
    170 Bowl of Leek Stock
    170 Bowl of Spring Water

    Eastemnet Farmer
    285 Bunch of Rye Berries

    Eastemnet Cook
    285 Bag of Eastemnet Crumbs

    Since the farmer doesn't constrain things, this is also the most efficient way to tier a cook alone, assuming you can get access to the needed mats.  The cook alone is under 5 hours.  If the farmer needs only proficiency, not mastery, it will save over 5 hours.

    There is a relation among the farmer and the cook as well because without both we cannot cook anything. Mostly there is custom dissertation service that is going to show the things that are interested in presenting more.
