In my New Year's Resolutions I decided to prepare a one day training class for Perl 6. Part of the plan will be to implement the relevant parts of the 414 recipes found in the 2nd edition of the Perl 5 Cookbook by Nathan Torkington and Tom Christiansen.
I know there was an effort in the Pugs repository to do so along the PLEAC - Programming Language Examples Alike Cookbook project but I think it will be fun to try to write all the examples by myself reading again the Perl 5 Cookbook and trying to write everything using Padre::Plugin::Perl6 and running over the latest version of Rakudo.
In general I plan to write one recipe a day but I am sure some of them will be either trivial or irrelevant for Perl 6. Others might not yet be available in the Rakudo implementation of Perl 6.
Part of the real cookbook can be read online on Google books
