  1. Oppose Oppose. This is one of the scopes of Wikibooks. --NGC 54 (talk / contribs) 16:56, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  2. Strong oppose This is why there is a thing called the Cookbook in Wikibooks. We don't need a separate project for that. — 🍕 Yivan000 viewtalk 01:53, 18 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  3. Oppose Oppose. Already in Wikibooks. We don't need a separate project for food. Random Wikimedian (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 15:24, 25 February 2021.
  4. Strong oppose per others. The scope is exactly the same as the Cookbook in Wikibooks. AnotherEditor144 t - c 12:38, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  5. Oppose Oppose I immediately thought of Wikibooks. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 12:45, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  6. Oppose Oppose I just now learned about Cookbook. But looking at it, it seems to have this covered. Now, finding a way to have a multilingual interface for Cookbook could be useful. SecretName101 (talk) 23:56, 6 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  7. Oppose Oppose This is a bad idea.... these kinds of projects already exist in wikibooks, this is unneeded. Arep Ticous 01:07, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Comment Comment I'd be, perhaps, interested in supporting a project that focuses less on the "history" of foods, and instead exclusively on recipe. If this instead proposed to spin-off cookbooks (in order to enable it to more easily go multilingual), I'd perhaps be in support of that. SecretName101 (talk) 00:01, 7 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  1. Oppose Oppose. See Wikipedia and Wikibooks. --Hérisson grognon (talk) 13:54, 14 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Probably stale, no support except proposer in 10 years. AnotherEditor144 t - c 12:46, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oops, there was somebody else. But still 2-4. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by AnotherEditor144 (talk) 12:51, 1 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't see much support, so this might have to be closed as stale. AnotherEditor144 t - c 07:28, 2 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Tagged as redundant (and also there is no support) - there's the Cookbook on Wikibooks for that. Leaderboard (talk) 15:01, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
