Give it a test run as it doesn't specify that it has been updated for BfA so there may be some additional info that they haven't documented.

Hm, the ItemLink does not seem to include the recipeID.

E.g. the reicpeID of "Savory Deviate Delight" is 8238

But string.match(itemLink, "item[%-?%d:]+") for "Savory Deviate Delight" returns


Also the category of a recipe does not seem to have anything to do with the expansion it belongs to.

E.g. the category of "Savory Deviate Delight" is "Unusual Delights", and there is no further parent category...
