The Great Human Bake-off quest: Who to ask about the recipe
Once you have collected the Very Old Grocery List, you’ll be tasked with asking around town for anyone familiar with it. Ask Hekla, who will inform you that the document is an ancient recipe for Macarons, which is a Majiri delicacy.
You’ll now need to make Macarons. To find out how, see below for where to get all the ingredients.

Once you have the ingredients, you will need two Mixing Stations to make Macarons. The Mixing Station is a crafter recipe you can unlock from Reth after achieving cooking level three.
First, you need to make Ground Sweet Leaf at one of the Mixing Stations, from regular Sweet Leaf.
Then, mix the Ground Sweet Leaf with Milk, Flour and an Egg to make Macarons at the second station. Now, return to Hekla for your quest XP reward.
