Passion for cookery
Cookipedia was created because ever since Mum helped me cook my first omelette, I have been passionate about cooking.
Over the last 50 years I have collected masses of recipes, tips and various useful information, mostly on scraps of paper and latterly in documents on various computers. Yet whenever I tried to find the same information in one location, be it on the web or in books I could never find it. So, I decided to bring all of these things together in one place. Cookipedia!
Not exactly like Wikipedia
Although this is on a Wiki, whilst I have the utmost respect for Wikipedia, I really don't want Cookipedia to become academic in the sense that Wikipedia is. To my mind, the target visitor to this site is someone what wants to know that a substitute for onions in a recipe could be shallots, leeks or spring onions, not that when sliced they produce the volatile gas syn-propanethial-S-oxide. A recipe should be thing of passion, involving personal likes and dislikes, not just a factual list.
Correct it, or provide an alternative
With cooking, as with computer programming (for I have an interest!) there is more than one way to do it (TMTOWTDI) - so, sure, if a recipe is plain wrong then correct it by all means. However, if you have a better or different one, publish it alongside, then everyone can try it out and be the judge.
Feel free to submit your recipes and ideas.
