When preparing the food offering as a sign of Windurst's friendship with Giddeus, Ranpi-Monpi accidentally mixed in a liquid that the Yagudo hate. Quickly recover the tainted offering from the altar at Giddeus before ruffling some Yagudo feathers.
Talk to Ranpi-Monpi to begin this quest. He will send you to Giddeus. Go to the lower floor and look for a door around (G-6) that leads into a storage room. There is an altar there. Touching the altar will get you the key item: Off Offering. Bring it back to Ranpi-Monpi.

The starting NPC (Ranpi-Monpi) is standing right in the middle of the Culinarian Guild main room (Funny looking and talking Taru standing on a barrel). Not sure if any fame is needed or not. I've done a couple quest here and there, but nothing to scoff at.
Next is the trip to Giddeus. There are many other quest in Windurst that involve trips to Giddeus, so if you don't want to keep running back and forth between the two, activate as many as you can and do em' all at once. Research Allakhazam for more info. There are two seperate floors here (The normal floor and the basement), so there will be two diffrent maps. There are three ways to get to the basement: I-8 (The long route), F-8 (The short route) and a hole in the ground at H-7 (The WRONG route which will take you to a seperate area in the basement. If you are not high enough level, you will be gang-probed by several Yags waiting within).
Once you arrived in the basement, You will want to travel to F-7. At this location will be a Yagudo NPC named Uu Zhoumo guarding "Winstaria Doors". I'm not too sure if you have to do anything special to open these doors (I kind of did this quest at a high level with other quest under my belt). Once you open the doors, you will be in a storage room (Another Yag NPC just pacing back and forth). At the end of the room will be a "Alter of Offerings". Click it. Get the "Off Offering" and then head out.
Go back to Ranpi. Talk to him. Get your reward. And then blow it all on Tarutaru ganja and Mithra Lap dances.
Can you get the Off Offering, go home, put it in your Mog Safe, return and get another Off Offering, put it in your safe...then trade like 10 in a row to them?
YOU CANNOT HOLD MORE THAN ONE OFF OFFERING AT ONE TIME.
I hope that answers your question. ^^;
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you want this quest to be repeatable, either DON'T do the "In a Stew" quest in WindurstWoods, or finish the "In a Stew" quest before you attempt "A Crisis in the Making" quest for your 1st time. For me, I did the "In a Stew" quest after I did the "A Crisis in the Making" quest for few times, so when I talk to the NPC Ranpi-Monpi in the Culinary Guild of WindurstWaters, he just repeat the words as if I finished the "In a Stew" quest. He no longer allow me to repeat the "A Crisis in the Making" quest..... >_<
There goes my 400gil repeatable quest...
Rhuidian 40 Warrior
He is on the left cooking guild building, and he is the tarutaru standing on ladderish-thing. It appears as if he is stirring something...
There are two taru thats are standing on something/stirring. One is Ranpi-Monpi, and the other is the taru that will give you advanced cooking imagery!!! ((You can't ask Ranpi-Monpi for imagery...))
Hope this helps!!! ^^

Highly recomend doing this quest at the same time as "Early Bird Catches the Bookworm" as they are in the same treasure room.

Here's why I say skip it:
My gf and I (blm 18 rdm 17) found this to be extremely long, boring, and actually difficult. Little XP and the only drops were Yaguda necklaces (if you're beginning weaving craft these come in handy), crystals, and the named Yaguda that drops a shield. All of which we found to be not worth the time. Healing down here is tenuous as well since the worms on the lower cavern attack w/out being provoked and the Yagudas tend to spawn quickly.
In the end, for all our work and time we got a whopping 400 gil. Considering I made 3000gil(1,500 from chocobilius, and 1,500 from the broken wand/animal glue quest) in less than 15 minutes I found this quest to be a waste of time.
Oh, we also died coming out of Giddeus. :( Least it made the trip home faster.
BTW, if you choose to do this quest, go to the lower caves and reach <pos> F-7, there you'll see a door and a dumby that says, "you're not allowed in the door." Ignore him and just go in.
Darkdante lvl 18 BLM lvl 1 WHM
Shaishy lvl 18 RDM
I was rank one with no missions completed when I got this quest.
Also, you do not need to join the cooking guild. But, you should, since it's free and you get a free fire crystal just for joining. ^^
