    @Skooba If there aren't any clues about it in currently available works, that's the answer to the question. "We don't know because...". I've got a funny feeling in the books there's a scene where she's identifying poison ingredients and mixing them by smell while blind, I could be wrong though – user568458 Jul 19 '16 at 17:15

    I want to know when she learned how to bake a pie. – Bill the Lizard Jul 20 '16 at 0:29
  • In season 7 she poisons the Freys, so yes, she can utilize poisons outside of the House of Black and White. – David Hobs Mar 15 '18 at 3:05

It is likely she knows how to mix poisons.

In Ayra's training scenes during S6E3, we see her smelling some ingredients and she is able to tell aparently determine what they are by smell alone (0:55 to 1:09). We cut away from that scene but come back to it and see her mixing the ingredients into a bottle (1:44 to 1:46, 1:53 to 1:58, 2:01 to 2:04).

However, we do not fully know what these ingredients are or what they are making. We can speculate that it is poison...

    Well, given that we later see her recognise poison by smell alone in a similar way, she's probably not mixing aftershave or Uncle Benjen's famous cajun marinade... – user568458 Jul 25 '16 at 10:15
  • I thought it was ingredients for that pie she made... it hard hard to mask the "big toe" taste (or was it thumb?) either, you need some good cooking skills! – Skooba Jul 25 '16 at 11:38
  • @user568458, that recipe is safely stored in the crypts of Winterfell <shhhhh> – m1gp0z Aug 6 '18 at 18:07
