- Once you enter Gilded Vale head to the south-west corner and enter the inn, the Black Hound.
- Speak to Pasca at the bar and ask her about the food and offer to help her find the cook, Tenfrith.
- Go to Valewood and head north-east until you see an outlaw/bandit. Kill him and then head east.
- There you will find Tenfrith at a campfire among several outlaws and he will ask for you to save him, initiating combat.
- Kill the outlaws and then talk to Tenfrith, afterwards he will run back to the inn, follow him.
- Speak with Pasca and Tenfrith to finish the quest.
You can also get this task by rescuing Tenfrith before speaking with Pasca. This doesn't change the reward; just speak to Pasca the next time you're in the Black Hound.

|10000||The Black Hound Inn in Gilded Vale has lost its beloved cook.|
|10001||Much like the rest of the town, Gilded Vale's inn has seen better days. It doesn't get much business, but the inn's master chef usually draws in a small but steady amount of visitors - that is, until his recent disappearance during a routine trip north for supplies. The innkeeper has suggested he might have come to harm on the road through the Valewood, and is seeking aid in seeing the chef safely returned.|
