Total War: Warhammer II guide – Cooking with Grom the Paunch and talking to the Food Merchant

Grom’s Cauldron in Total War: Warhammer II – The Warden & The Paunch has 25 total ingredients and 15 unique recipes to find. The more recipes Grom cooks, the stronger he becomes. Similarly, the main goal in your Total War: Warhammer II campaign is to cook 12 different dishes. This will allow you to fight Eltharion the Grim in the Siege of Tor Yvresse final battle.

Now, when it comes to the ingredients, you can unlock them via the following means:

  • Unlock requirements – Each ingredient has a specific task that you need to do in order to unlock it.
  • Food Merchant – The Food Merchant also sells a random ingredient for 1,000 gold (more on this character later).
  • Sunken treasures – These can randomly provide you with Fishy Chunks-type ingredients.

Anyway, we’ll go ahead and discuss this feature in detail. You can refer to the pages below for the parts that you need help with regarding Grom the Paunch’s unique mechanics in Total War: Warhammer II – The Warden & The Paunch:
