This is my first ever guide, I will try to keep it very simple and concrete.
1. What do I need? Skill levels, items, etc?
* Cooking level of 35+
* Jugs of water
* Magic 78+ (Not required, but suggested)
* Access to ancient magicks. (Not required, but suggested)
* Amulets of Glory(4) OR Duelling rings(8) (Both not required, but suggested)
* Brawling gloves (cooking) <- A must
2. How it works:
When you make wines, by mixing grapes into jugs of water, they normally take 10-15 seconds to ferment. Meaning, you have to wait 10-15 seconds to receive the xp for it. It doesn't matter if the unfermented wines sit in your bank or inventory.
The 10-15 seconds proccess of fermenting can be altered. If you keep making unfermented wines continuously, without stopping for more than 10 seconds, you will not recieve the XP until you do stop.
Lets imagine: You make 100 unfermented wines. You are wearing your cooking brawler gloves. Quickly after depositing the last 14 unfermented wines to your bank, you grab 2 law runes, 3 fire runes and 2 air runes and teleport to the wilderness using ancient magicks level 78 (Dareeyak teleport) teleportion spell.
As you might know, brawler gloves give 4 X the normal XP when worn in the wilderness, therefor, right after you teleport to the wilderness, the unfermented wines in your bank will become normal wines, thus you are gaining XP for them. And you indeed get 4 X the normal XP.
After gaining the XP, you run 2-3 wilderness levels south and teleport to edgeville with the amulet of glory or castle wars bank with your duelling ring.
3. Ahhh, I see! This is awesome! The XP/h must be unseen! And how much does it cost?
You are right! I got 2.3M XP/h. This test was done without mousekeys or any other help. Simply relaxed playing.
I don't really know a lot about using mousekeys, using markers, but I hear that using those gadgets can raise your efficiency quite a lot. I would estimate that by using mousekeys and with very concentrated gameplay you could achive up to 2.7M XP/h.
And about the cost...
This is probably one of the cheapest ways to train cooking. Yes, you can make profit with cooking rocktails(thanks to Amethyst_Gem for pointing that out), but considering the speed of the XP, losing some money is not going to be an issue.
I bought my grapes for 450 each, and jugs of water for 275 each. Meaning 725 gp per wine.
XP for 1 wine = 800 XP
Cost of 1 cooking XP with this method = 0.9 GP
4. This is cool and everything, but brawler gloves only last 10 hours/1M XP! And how am I supposed to get my hands into some comfy cooking brawler gloves anyway?
Wrong. Brawler gloves last for 1,200 XP gains! This means, by making only 100 unfermented wines at a time and then teleporting to wilderness, your cooking brawlers would last for 1200 * (800 * 100) = 96,000,000 XP! That is a lot.
You could easily get 200M XP with just one pair. The average portion of unfermented wines you would need to make each time before teleporting to wilderness would be ~210.
I don't suggest banking more than 250 unfermented wines at a time. Sometimes you might get disconnected, or do some really bad misclicks, in which case the extra XP would be wasted.
If you didn't know before, brawler gloves are only dropped by revenants. Adding a section how to kill revenants would basically mean writing a new guide. I suggest you use this link for information about them:

5. Dude, this guide is boring. No pictures or anything...
Notice the XP counter.
6. But I don't have access to ancient magicks!
Well, then, all I can say is: too bad. Start training! Not really! There is an alternative way!
You can use the bank in high-level wilderness. The bank is undergound, near the mage arena, accessed by a teleportion lever. As soon as you want the awesome 4 X XP, use the lever to teleport back to the wilderness.
This method is not suggested by me. Mage arena bank is crowded with PK'ers, the banker inside the banking area moves around, which makes it pretty annoying.
But, if you don't have access to ancient magicks, and decide to go with the mage arena bank, be sure to bring a sharp weapon or a knife, to cut through the spider webs.
7. Are there any other methods other than mage bank/level 78 wilderness tele?
If you have already tired this, you know that using this method, you can not allow almost any misclicks. Today, I made over 400 unfermented wines. When I started to pull out the runes for teleport, my mouse started lagging, only costing me about 2-3 seconds. But that was enough - I received the xp for the wines in the bank.
As suggested by my dear friend xpx, you could also use a lava titan teleport. You need at least 83 summoning for that. A lava titan teleports you to level 41 wilderness, though. But teleporting with a familiar is so much faster than withdrawing the runes for teleport. There is very little chance that you will not make it into the wilderness before the wines ferment.
There is a downside, and I think you already noticed it. You have to run from level 41 wilderness to level 30, to use glory teleport.
Not the most efficient way, but if you want to guarantee the bonus XP from every portion, then this is the way to go.
8. Thanks, etc.
Many thanks to our forum global moderator Quyneax for being a nice person and wishing me good luck on writing this guide!
Also, I appreciate xpx's advice on some aspects of this guide
I understand that this guide is missing a lot of stuff, like how to get to the mage arena bank, and so on, but I think I got all the essentials covered.
There may be some massive grammatical errors. English is not my native language, even though that's not a real excuse for me. Bare with it.
Feel free to point out any typos and grammatical errors, I will fix them. And be sure to mention if I left out something important.
Cheers and happy wine making!
