If you want to pick up items that are going to be removed, here is the listing.

Guild Wars 2: Leveling Crafting Above 400

Apparently all crafting in Guild Wars 2 will be expanded to level 500.  Here's a bit about how it is supposed to work.

HOWEVER, right now apparently only the three weapon crafting professions go above 400 right now (October 2013).  That's weapon smith, huntsman and artificer.

Where to find the various crafting materials.  General locations, listed by material type.

Searchable database.  Choose Items, then "Material" and then the type of material (fabric, leather, ore, etc.).  "Consumables" are also hidden under Items.

Help for the Guild Wars 2 Chef

The GW2 Database lists the recipes.

Here is a spreadsheet of all the recipes in the game, courtesy of Keyshana.  It lists recipes and their ingredients plus the level needed to craft the item.

The GW2 wiki describes the various ingredients and gives you hints as to what are drops, items you must purchase, the NPCs that sell some things, etc.  Clicking on an ingredient will tell you what recipes it can be used in.

This is a list of ingredients by location.

This seems to be a list of foods, their ingredients, levels, stats, buffs, etc.
