SourcesEdit

Hi all,

It doesn't look like this page is very active, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I have recently discovered that the page Kettle corn is completely unsourced. I'd really like to improve it. Of course, the difficulty is finding sources. Simply searching for history of kettle corn just produces a lot of companies that have blog posts about the history, with no sources.

So how can I find some better historical sources for this page? I understand that it's difficult to find the exact origin of foods, and that's fine. But I'd really like to improve the page. I don't normally work in food-related pages, so I'm a little out of my depth. Really would appreciate any advice. Apathyash (talk) 01:46, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Apathyash, often the best way to find good information about a food item familiar to the English-speaking world is to find specialty cookbooks that focus on that item. They'll usually have forewords or first chapters that discuss the food's history and importance. —valereee (talk) 17:36, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

Sel grisEdit

Can we work on improving this short article, especially its sourcing? Bearian (talk) 21:01, 23 December 2020 (UTC) sure thing bearian 1:32 2/2/2022 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yahoot77 (talkcontribs) 18:33, 2 February 2022 (UTC)

Mormon foodwaysEdit

Hi, I've been working on a page on my sandbox on Mormon foodways. I think it's almost ready to publish (I still need to write the lead though). I haven't written any food pages before. Is "Mormon foodways" okay as a title? It's not different enough from midwestern food to be its own cuisine, according to my colleague in Mormon folklore. A recent book on the subject of Utah foods called it "Utah food traditions." Right now I'm also thinking I should get rid of the "bread" section and put it under "Utah pioneers - processing". Some information on the page could be appropriate on Rocky Mountain cuisine, a page which is currently focused on the Canadian rocky mountain cuisine. What are your thoughts? Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 18:25, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

update, you can read this page at Mormon foodways. I did work the bread section into the other sections. Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 17:22, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Template:WikiProject Food and drink cannot be used inside Template:WikiProject banner shell with some parametersEdit

It results in the page landing in Category:Pages where expansion depth is exceeded.

You can see this in this old revision of Talk:Mascarpone, which was reverted with the next edit. The call to {{WikiProject Food and drink}} looks like this: {{WikiProject Food and drink|class=Start|importance=mid |cheese=yes}}

Even without the "shell" it has a template expansion depth of 37, which is right up against the limit of 40, as shown in the source-code view of the "old revision" link above. Search for Highest expansion depth: 37/40 to find the parser profiling data. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 16:13, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

@Davidwr: This is an old problem, see Template talk:WikiProject Food and drink/Archive 1#Pages where expansion depth is exceeded. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:34, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Food Angel - Points for improvementEdit

The article is concise and clearly written. However, the information provided is brief and seems incomplete. The page is underdeveloped, so I suggest the following improvements:

  • More information can be added to this page by adding information that is posted on their website and by updating the information already written.
  • A bigger variety of sources can be looked into to add relevant and reliable information.
  • The article could also use some visuals, such as the logo of the organization.
  • Information needs to be added about their different services, their efforts in education, their partners, and the impact they have on society. These could be turned into additional sections, except their services which need to be added to the existing section services.
  • The article includes a clear introductory sentence, but the brief description does not include the content of the article's major sections. The lead section is also too detailed.
  • The limited content of the article is relevant to the topic, but not up-to-date. Some services are missing and the main structure of the organization is also not included or explained. The different services that the organization provides are briefly described, however, they could be expanded on.
  • The facts in the article are backed up by secondary sources. There are sources that are no longer available, and the article contains sources such as news papers and websites which seem random.
  • The article is concise and easy to read. It does not contain grammatical or spelling mistakes, and is broken down in logical sections. However, the flow of the writing is less appealing
  • The article is rated as Start-Class and as Low-importance. It is part of the WikiProject Food and Drink, WikiProject Hongkong, and WikiProject Organizations. Maybe by adding it to a different WikiProject related to non-profit organizations the article will remove more attention and might get a better status.

Article on Jelly BabiesEdit

If you go the talk page of the article on Jelly Babies, you will see the article is of interest to this WikiProject, but has not received a rating on its importance scale. I would have thought it would be of low importance. Rollo August (talk) 17:56, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Tom AikensEdit

Someone his full busy with Tom Aikens (chef), Tom Aikens (restaurant) and Draft:Tom Aikens (restaurant). He originally proposed to merge the article about the chef and the restaurant, to which I objected as both are clearly notable. Now he is mingling the two, adding a prior career of Aikens to the restaurant and adding a case about theft in the restaurant to the article about the chef. Beside that, he added a piece about what happened with the building after the restaurant closed down. To my opinion irrelevant.

The discussion at Talk:Tom Aikens#Tom Aikens (restaurant) is stalling, so more eyes needed. The Banner talk 18:08, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

The full explanation for all of the above may be found in this edit, which was vandalism, pure and simple - it should simply have been reverted outright, and should not have needed three separate edits to fix. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 11:54, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Proposal to restore the Trans Fat article that no longer exists because of a merger with FatEdit

Triple CrownEdit

Hi everyone. I'm not a member of this project, but I do (unofficially) co-run the Wikipedia:Triple Crown award. As you'll see at that page, a specific WikiProject Food and drink Triple Crown was created (before my time), though we have yet to have any people nominate themselves or others for that award. If you have met the criteria (been a major contributor to a DYK, a good article and a piece of featured content that are all under the scope of this project, please feel free to nominate yourself for the award, and maybe you'll be the first winner. Further rules/clarification is available at the awards page. Oh and feel free to nominate yourself for a regular Triple Crown if you have achieved those milestones though for articles not under the scope of this project. Have a great day.

Project on OkonomiyakiEdit

Over the next week, there is going to be a work project on Okonomiyaki by the Wikipedia Discord server as part of an attempt to get Okonomiyaki to B-class and we would appreciate your help. They are trying to get all vital articles to B-class. (Oinkers42) (talk) 18:06, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

First Sentence is too long and has a final confusing clauseEdit

The first sentence of this article reads: "Vasilopita (Greek: Βασιλόπιτα, Vasilópita, lit. '(St.) Basil-pie' or 'Vassilis pie', see below) is a New Year's Day bread or cake in Greece and many other areas in eastern Europe and the Balkans which contains a hidden coin or trinket which gives good luck to the receiver, like the Western European."

This should be divided into multiple sentences. I have no idea what ".....like the Western European." is referring to. Needs to be clarified or removed.

Food article messEdit

I found Prawn ball in the unsourced since 2005 listing and thought I'd take a stab at getting it up to the modern WP standards, but I'm struggling how to integrate new information when the article (and related articles) aren't very good to begin with. I've made a talk discussion at Fish ball [2] that explains the issues. I'd appreciate any comments! Cheers, Estheim (talk) 03:35, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

Draft:Inyama YenhlokoEdit

This South African dish seems quite likely notable, as it's a traditional ceremonial food, but sigcov is elusive. If anyone has access to books about SA/Zulu traditional cuisine/culture, it might be helpful. Other names for this dish include inyama yentloko, iskopo, and cow's head. —valereee (talk) 16:07, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

List of breadsEdit

See Talk:List of breads#Accuracy and sources - some of these are ridiculous - posted after I saw a complaint that someone had added white bread as originating in the United States. Doug Weller talk 14:24, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

Tangent to this, I've found Bread roll and Bun (and their counterparts List of bread rolls, List of buns) to be vague, and each article references the other. In Bread roll: "There are many terms for a bread roll within the United Kingdom depending on region. These names include... bun" and in Bun: "A bun is a... roll." From reading what's in the article, I'd say that "Bun" is far more encompassing and could be the target of a merge, however both are inadequately sourced. Since so many examples are in non-English, I also question the categorization, since the original language might have a special distinction that is unique from how buns/rolls are defined in English-speaking places.
I think a merge would be good, but if there's a better idea, I'm all ears. Cheers, Estheim (talk) 17:59, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Outline of food preparation categoriesEdit

Is there a better term for the "Baking" category here? Otherwise, the outline seems to imply baking is a catch-all term for any method that isn't grilling or frying and includes things like steaming, pressure cooking, and infusion. 93 (talk) 14:12, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

Baking is certainly wrong in this context. I cannot think of an appropriate replacement yet. My first thought is move that section to the bottom of the category and call it other. —¿philoserf? (talk) 15:08, 13 September 2021 (UTC)

PastillaEdit

Hello,

I noticed that the article about Pastilla contains many allegations that are not supported by historical facts, chief of which the claim that Pastilla is an Algerian dish.

One of the contributors to the article makes the unfounded claim that Pastilla was introduced into Morocco when some Algerian families emigrated to Tetouan upon the occupation of the city of Algiers in 1830 by the French. To give a semblance of credibility to his/her claim, the author put a footnote that talks about Baklawas and not about Pastilla. It has been an established fact that Pastilla is Moroccan origin.

I would highly appreciate it if you do the necessary to prevent impostors from claiming what does not belong to them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SamirJawhara (talkcontribs) 22:01, 17 October 2021 (UTC)

Note: SamirJawhara has been edit warring, removing content without a valid explanation and persistently censoring content on the Morocco World News article. Contrary to their baseless claim, the Pastilla article is extremely well sourced. In any case, should they survive WP:AIV, they will take a trip to ANI. M.Bitton (talk) 22:12, 17 October 2021 (UTC)

DoorDash requestsEdit

Hello! Abby here with DoorDash, hoping to find an editor willing to review a couple requests I've posted at Talk:DoorDash. I've proposed an update about the company's entry into international markets as well as an update regarding the number of employees. I've received little feedback despite using Template:Request edit. I'm not editing the article directly because of my conflict of interest, and I'm hoping a WikiProject Food and drink member might be able to review and update the page appropriately. Thanks for any help! AH at DoorDash (talk) 20:52, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Non-diffusing categoriesEdit

I created both Canadian women and men chef subcategories. I did so after seeing that American ones exist. Now generally, parents categories should not be filled with articles that can be subcategorized. Non-diffusing category templates are seemingly redundant as well. Only specific articles that can't be subcategorized should be in the main category. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 21:39, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

@Mr. C.C.: please read the WP:DUPCAT guideline that says "Subcategories defined by gender, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality should almost always be non-diffusing subcategories". The two categories Category:Canadian male chefs and Category:Canadian women chefs are defined by gender and should be non-diffusing of Category:Canadian chefs by this rule.--Mvqr (talk) 15:20, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
@Mvqr: You didn't follow that. You added, then removed Canadian chefs category from other articles. So if that's the "guideline," you're not following it. Oh and it says "almost." Take that into account. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 17:03, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
@Mr. C.C.: I did follow that. I added by mistake Category:Canadian chefs to articles that contained the diffusing category Category:Canadian television chefs. I then realised my mistake and corrected it for articles in the diffusing sub-category. Category:Canadian male chefs and Category:Canadian women chefs should be non-diffusing, and articles containing them should contain either Category:Canadian chefs or the diffusing sub-category Category:Canadian television chefs.--Mvqr (talk) 06:26, 6 December 2021 (UTC) Fix ping @Mr. C.C.:.--Mvqr (talk) 06:27, 6 December 2021 (UTC)

RFC that could affect this projectEdit

There is a titling RFC at Wikipedia talk:Article titles that may affect many articles at this project.

Butter cookie or Palmier?Edit

An editor at Talk:Butter cookie believes that the image here is a palmier, not a cookie at all. So do I. But are we right? If so, I'll move the file.

Doug Weller talk 09:48, 20 January 2022 (UTC)

I would have to agree. The image was added to the page in 2006 and is from a Flickr account which simply called them butter cookies. I would replace it in the Butter cookie article and at List of cookies with something like
2019-11-29 14 52 43 The interior of a tin of McKenzie & Lloyds Danish Style Butter Cookies in the Dulles section of Sterling, Loudoun County, Virginia.jpg
which showcases the variety of butter cookies that were explicitly described in the article. 93 (talk) 22:34, 26 January 2022 (UTC)

Seeking advice on "medaillon" the round cut of meatEdit

What I first thought was a simple, obvious, edit has become a contended discussion here. While there is no need for you to get into the specifics of the discussion, I could use some assistance on a couple points.

  1. Can anyone locate an article or article section that discusses a "medaillon"? My search has not turned up anything, but this is far from my subject of expertise. Perhaps someone here who is more familiar with these articles can help find something appropriate.
  2. The anglicized spelling, "medallion", has three meanings, of which the round cut of meat is the third. If you were to create an article on this subject, what would you name it? I proposed Medallion (meat cut), but I feel it may be a bit clunky and odd. Others have proposed Medallion (cooking) and Medallion (food), but a medaillon is neither a method of cooking nor a kind of food. It's a cut of meat. Does anyone have a better suggestion for the proper disambiguator? Perhaps you have a standard term that I'm not aware of. This is out of my league, so I thought it would be good to seek the opinion of those better versed than I.

Thanks much! PoundTales (talk) 11:13, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

Owamni photo in Minneapolis articleEdit

Should a photo of restaurant Owamni remain in the article Minneapolis? Because it resurrects indigenous food, Owamni is celebrated, but some editors feel the photo we've got isn't good enough.

John Antioco: Career section edit requestEdit

Hello! I'm a COI editor here on behalf of John Antioco, whose Wiki page I'm trying to improve. Mr. Antioco has had a robust career that includes time as CEO of Taco Bell, P.F. Chang's, and Red Mango. He has also, through his investment firm JAMCO, purchased a controlling stake in restaurant chains such as Friendly's and TGI Fridays. The current version of his page hardly includes any information on this, so I put together a new Career section that covers those details as well as his tenure at other large companies like Blockbuster and 7-Eleven. I was wondering if anyone on this WikiProject would help me out by reviewing my draft? It's available in full on my user page, and you can see my initial Career edit request on the John Antioco talk page. Any assistance would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Page for generic, non-WFP-related "high energy biscuits"?Edit

With myself staying in Shanghai chewing some wheat-based emergency rations, I realized that there does not really appear to be a page for this sort of thing on Wikipedia. What want is a generic term similar to how the terms hardtack and energy bar are used, describing a product similar to the high energy biscuit but without the WFP-mandated nutrition baseline. It's clearly not a hardtack in the traditional sense (not tooth-breaking, not leavened), but also not a normal energy bar in the snack-sports-food sense.

Talk:emergency rations has Andrewa (sorry for bothering you!) mentioning these things. A common English term on Amazon.com for these things seems to be "emergency food bars" or "survival food bars". In Mandarin we just call it 压缩饼干 "compressed biscuits", which also applies to hardtack.

Just to complicate things a bit:

  • Exported 压缩饼干 seem to use the HEB term on amazon.sg.
  • Not all "HEB" HEB are unleavened bricks. Google Image search produces quite some variety in European and UN offerings. I guess they are using the WFP definition, so it's fair.

No bother! We are a collaboration. I'll see whether I can find more time for this, and thanks for the research and ping. Andrewa (talk) 05:39, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

I've proposed merging the category, too: Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2022 April 27. ---Another Believer (Talk) 00:31, 27 April 2022 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.

Omaha Steaks requestEdit

Hi Wikipedia editors, I'm a part of the communications team at Omaha Steaks and I'd like to see if a member of the Food and drink WikiProject can review a request that seems especially relevant. On the Omaha Steaks article Talk page, I've shared a revised draft that streamlines the article's content and updates references while still retaining critical information (and readability throughout).

I will not make any changes to the page myself due to my conflict of interest, so I'm hoping editors can help with this. Thanks, Omaha Steaks Ashley (talk) 19:08, 5 May 2022 (UTC)

No notable restaurants for various types of cuisine?Edit

I'm a bit surprised Wikipedia has no entries for notable restaurants know for serving various types of cuisine. For example:

This short list focuses on Latin American cuisine, but I could keep going across food genres. Would any project members be interested in helping to create entries about notable restaurants for some of the less-covered types of cuisine? ---Another Believer (Talk) 15:11, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
