What is Cookipedia
I created Cookipedia because ever since cooking my first omelette with mum's help, I have been passionate about all things 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, with a little technical knowledge and lots of hard work, I have sought to bring all of these things together in one place. Cookipedia!
Not academic?. And this may upset some people, 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 manner 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 volitile gas; syn-propanethial-S-oxide. A recipe is a thing of passion, involving personal likes and dislikes.
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 one, publish it as well, then we can all judge.
Feel free to submit your recipes and ideas.
Be nice and enjoy.
