Inspired somewhat, by ingeniousclown’s Research Assistant, Sous Chef will make your provisioning life somewhat easier, by keeping track of things so you don’t have to.
Sous Chef will work through your cookbook, and then whenever you look at your inventory, loot or bank, will mark Provisioning Ingredients with the Provisioning item type. If you mouse over the ingredient, Sous Chef will let you know which recipes use that ingredient, along with how many of that recipe you can make with your current inventory. (Note, currently we’re unable to match ingredients in the Guild Store). You can switch her behaviour to only show the details on left click, if you’re short on Tooltip space.
She will sort/group your known ingredients if you wish her to.
She will also take note when you browse recipes, of any that you don’t know, in your inventory, bank, guild bank and guild store, and mark them for your later elucidation. Let it not be said that your Sous Chef doesn’t look out for you!
If you set Alternate Character Check on and have the Mark if recipes are unknown, then the tickmarks marking unknown recipes will be faded if an alternate character knows that recipe. Clicking once on the recipe will detail who knows that one.
Alternate Character (Recipe/Ingredient) Knowledge will spread the information of your culinary knowledge to all your bank alts.
In the Provisioning table, Blue and Purple recipes will be shown in the appropriate colour!
Sous Chef will also track a Shopping List if you so wish. To do so, simply mark any recipe you wish to keep track of, in the Provisioning window, and Sous Chef will highlight the ingredients for those recipes in a different colour. You can also ask her to only worry about the Shopping List and ignore all other ingredients.
Now the only problem that remains is hoarding ingredients on the off chance that you’ll find the recipe for it in the future =)

French and German clients
Hopefully, the recipe/result name mismatch problem will be solved with version 2.9. If you continue to have problems, even after disabling the experimental recipe matcher, please let me know in the comments.
With regards to non English clients, there are a number of Recipe/Result combinations that do not match exactly.
EG: Geißelwürzeconfit comes from a Rezept:Geißelwürzenconfit, which I assume (verb and noun appropriately) is either due to a typo, or different people translating the original.
French recipes have examples like “Recette de bière à la viande sombre” to make “Bière de viande sombre”. I have an experimental filter to remove ‘de’ and ‘à la’ to try and improve matching, but that doesn’t work in German, where it’s all a single word (Difficult to differentiate endings and the like from midword letters).
I’ve tried to handle this, but cannot reliably do so, so I must sadly decline any future bug report of this nature. If you could report to Zenimax, the typo (I’m unsure what sort of priority they have for text adjustments), that will resolve itself in the future, but that is all I can offer as a solution to this issue.
If you wish to ignore a recipe so it doesn’t keep clogging up your system, you can use the following commands:
/sciadd <recipe name> – Will add a recipe to the list. Can use the link if you can render it (ie not from the Guild Shop)
/sciremove <recipe name> – Will remove a recipe from the list (also can use a link)
/scilist – Will list what recipes you have ignored
If a recipe name is in that list, it will not be considered for marking. Also note, that atm, links with accented/umlaut’d characters will not parse well, you will have to type out the name. I’ll work on fixing that.
As with most Addons, simply open the Archive and copy the contents into “%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\Addons\” folder.
If ESO is already running, execute /reloadui command.
