Guild Wars 2 Chef Guide
The Chef Profession in Guild Wars 2 allows players to create food consumables which buff the player's character in many different ways. You can get food that increases your Power, Critical hit chance, damage, Magic Find, Gold Find and the list goes on almost endlessly. It's a great profession to have and is one of the most commonly chosen professions in the game. At this current point being a Chef doesn't turn that much of a profit but within a year or so after the game's release and everyone starts learning about how amazing the food is Chef's usefulness will skyrocket.
Players can choose a profession by speaking with that profession's master tradeskiller who can be found in any of the major towns of GW2 (Lion's Arch, Divinity's Reach, Hoelbrak etc etc). Approach the master tradeskiller and select the "Please teach me to be a <Profession Name>." Option to select a Tradeskill. speaking to the profession master and learning the profession you will be able to make items via that profession through whatever tradeskill table belongs to it. For example, Artificer's use Artificing Tables, Chef's use a Cooking Station and an Armorsmith uses an Armorsmithing Station.
You will be able to drop and pick up any professions with all your recipes intact and at the same exact skill you dropped it at any time by visiting the master tradeskill trainer of whatever profession you would like to pick back up.
