Mystery Island Kitchen Quests
Before a pirate's curse destroyed Maraqua, the Flotsam Chef served the Royal Family. With the arrival of New Maraqua came Kelp Restaurant, so this poor guy had to settle for a job on Mystery Island cooking food for Mumbo Pango! And unless he meets the demands of the pagan demigod, he'll be turned into soup! (Or at least... it's implied...) You're not going to leave the Flotsam to such a cruel fate, are you? ARE YOU?
"Naturally, working in a kitchen means I need lots of food for ingredients."
Unlike faerie quests, the Flotsam Chef waits for you to come to him for a quest. He gives you a time limit (he does have a schedule, after all) and usually asks for more than one item, but he'll let you use the Shop Wizard. Once you've finished, he'll reward you with some Neopoints and an item or increase the Battledome stats for your Neopet. Note: the pet receiving the stats is selected randomly.
Is It Worth It?
Whether the quests are worth it or not can vary from person to person. If you have only one Neopet, and it costs a lot to train them, you'll likely have a much higher price threshold than someone with several pets and reasonable training costs. As one of the latter, larger group, I've generally found around 3k for all items to be a good price cut-off.
Above is a list of some exclusive items that can only be obtained from his quests. If you're really lucky, you might receive one as a reward.
