It appears as though trainers are neutral and can be used by members of either faction.
The first Recipe you will learn is Minnow Dumpling, turning Smooth Minnow into food that restores health and mana. Your second recipe is available at 20 skill. This will be a hard stretch but just stay in the first zone until you get enough Minnows to get there. From that point it becomes much easier to level up Fishing and Survival together. You will also have a 30-point gap from 260 to 290, as there is only one recipe, so be sure to hold on to all the Brown Perch and Teal Groupers in Stillmoor, Shimmersand and Ember Isle!
Most food recipes will require you to purchase ingredients from the Master trainer. There are six of these ingredients (listed lowest cost to highest): Fresh Herbs, Sea Salt, Dough, Mixed Vegetables, Soup Stock, and Ground Spices.
Recipes for bedrolls and tents require cloth (not bolts!). If you have not done so, stockpile some Burlap through Spellspun Silk. When I leveled up Survival I had to strip all the burlap I had on all my alts just to level up one survivalist!
You can make your first bedroll at skill level 100. Bedrolls and tents increase your Rested XP gain from within the game. Just use a tent any time you go AFK to replenish your Rested XP.
You will need all of the following Cloths to level up your Survivalist. Listed are SOME mobs that drop them reliably...
Survivalists can make Basic Food and Stat Food from fish caught by Fishermen. Basic Food recovers Health and Mana, while the Stat Food adds a 30 minute Stat Buff in addition to the health and mana recovery.
Some recipes can only be gained as a reward from a Fishing quest or a rare drop from a chest which has been fished up.
