How do you get from 490-500 on Cooking?

I can't seem to locate any recipes that give me decent xp at this point and a lot of the information on the wiki is wrong (450-475 recipes actually requiring 500, ingredients listed that don't actually match in-game, etc.). Do you have to do the gourmet achievement fully to hit 500? How else do you do it?

    I can’t remember what I did but I did it entirely with cooking food for my second character.

    IIRC at around level 425 you get a letter that starts off a quest to allow you to get to 500

    The Commander will end you.

    I finished that quest and stoped at 491 hence why the OP asked how to get it to 500.
    I say discover any 400 recipes you havent yet OP.

    Just craft those ascended seed pouches. When I was levelling chef for an alt, as soon as I could craft those I power levelled to 500 while just consuming what I already had in storage.
