WikiProject Food and Drink is one of the oldest WikiProjects on Wikipedia, beginning its life as the Gastronomy WikiProject in April 2003. Since that time, it has evolved into a comprehensive project covering numerous subjects and concentrations. However, it remains as an association of Wikipedians who share an interest in food and drink related matters who have come together to co-ordinate the development of these articles on Wikipedia.
If you would like to help or require assistance, please inquire on the talk page, check the "Ways to contribute" section on this page, or just dig in and start editing!
This WikiProject covers a very broad array of subjects, from national cuisines to various food dishes and beverages. The amount of topics that fall under our umbrella is huge, with over 34,000 articles and counting that are grouped into numerous categories.
Some examples of topics within this project's scope are listed below. Many more additional topics exist.
Foods, beverages, dishes and other foodstuffs;
Cuisines and national cuisines;
Commercial food vendors, manufactures and restaurants;
The editors and contributors to Wikipedia are the core of this project. Without you, we cannot reach our goal of becoming the premier site on the web for Food and Drink-related information! To that end, we have taken several steps to help you help us meet our goal. The links above provide some ways to contribute.
This list was generated from these rules. Questions and feedback are always welcome! The search is being run daily with the most recent ~14 days of results. Note: Some articles may not be relevant to this project.
The following links are to pages that with lists of topics that require articles. There are literally hundreds of requests for new articles, and listing them would take up too much space. Instead we have provided links to the pages that contain the lists.
Add the ((WikiProject Food and drink)) project banner to food and drink related articles and content to help bring them to the attention of members. For a complete list of banners for WikiProject Food and drink and its child projects, select here.

Good articles are considered to be of good quality, but are not yet as qualified as featured articles. Good articles meet the good article criteria, passing through the good article nomination process successfully. In short, they are written very well, contain factually accurate and verifiable information, are broad in coverage, neutral in point of view, stable, and illustrated, where possible, by relevant images with suitable copyright licenses. Good articles do not have to be as comprehensive as featured articles, but they should not omit any major facets of the topic.
Did you know... (DYK) consists of a series of "hooks", which are interesting facts taken from Wikipedia's newest content, in the format "Did you know that...?" Something that appeared on DYK was identified by an editor as being from new or recently expanded content and proposed an interesting "hook" designed to catch the eye of other readers. DYK is not a general trivia section, but is only for articles that have been either, created, expanded at least five-fold or were newly sourced and expanded at least two-fold at the time they were featured on the main page.

YChesPal (talk·contribs) - I am interested in improving any category related to food which interests me. I have a collection of over 400 cookbooks. Some of the categories are: Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Hungarian, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Jewish/Kosher, Traditional (Classic) American, Southern, Cajun, Middle Eastern, Vegetarian (including international recipes). I consider myself to be fairly proficient in many of these cuisines. I look forward to seeing where this project may be able to use my expertise.
