Cook Idriak may be found at -215, -1725.

You say, 'Hail, Cook Idriak'

Cook Idriak says 'Lovely day, isn't it? What I wouldn't give for some Flutter Soup! Those [pesky Bixies] have been eluding me all day, and honestly they are just delicious. I like to think of myself as something of a chef, you see. There are so many recipes out there waiting to be discovered!'

You say, 'Pesky Bixies?'

Cook Idriak says 'I know, I know. People seem to balk at the idea of actually eating the Bixies, but they just need to keep an open mind! This could be an incredible boon and practically limitless food source for Crescent Reach. Nearly every body part is edible! For instance, all I need to make a delectable soup are some [wings], or a light and fluffy flan from [antennae], and the very best new top secret recipe calls for [heads]! Now, what do you know about [jumjum refining]?'

You say, 'What heads?'

You have been assigned the task 'Heads Above the Rest'.

Cook Idriak says 'Ah yes, my newest recipe. It isn't quite ready to be unveiled, but let me assure you, there is nothing else quite like it! Fetch me some Bixie heads so I can perfect my technique. One day soon I shall reveal it to the world and it will be the greatest sensation!'

Collect Bixie Heads from bixies in and around Stone Hive for Cook Idriak's latest recipe.

Deliver 10 Ripe Bixie Heads from bixies in Stone Hive to Cook Idriak - 0/10 (Blightfire Moors)

Head into Stone Hive. On the second and third floors of the hive are bixies with red and gold patterns on them. Kill these until you loot 10 x Ripe Bixie Head.

You have collected enough Bixie Heads for Cook Idriak's new experimental recipe!
You gain experience!!

The reward for this task is a Buzzing Bixie Wand.

Ok here we go again !!!
To SAVE yourself a lot of grief, running back and forth, to collect items, it's STRONGLY advisable to get ALL of Botanist Bazuu AND Cook Idraik's quest before you do any of them.
All INFO on any of their quest (3 per NPC) are INCORRECT.

All the items you need drop off ANY Bixie in the zone so, while hunting for the heads, in 1 of Idraik's quests, which seem to only drop on 2nd floor, you will get other items also.
The drop rates vary in both number and type from mob to mob but, ANY Bixie in the zone can drop.
If after you get all the heads, you still need items, you can stay there or go to a different area of zone and kill ANY Bixie !!!

SORRY for all the confusion.

It's totally mind boggling the crap that people post on this site that have no bearing on quests!

If you are having difficulty in turning them in this task is the third step in the Cooks progression.

1. Do the WIngs for Flutter soup.

2. Do the Antennae for Touchy Feely FLan

3. Then the Bixe heads for Bixie Surprise.

It should work for you if you did these tasks in order.
Change in task - Deliver instead of Loot

singular step is now
Deliver 10 Ripe Bixie Heads from bixies in Stone Hive to Cook Idriak - 0/10 - Blightfire Moors

There is no task update for looting, just for handing in the items after receiving the task so you could stockpile these and do it again.

There must have been an overhaul of tasks since Hero's Journey tasks have all worked for me so far.
Some tasks have been tweaked so I post what I see.
~ Muse Temperance the Elf
~ Lyricist of <Mystic Coercion> on Erollisi Marr
~ with a <Variety> of alts to keep me busy
This task doesn't have any update part.
