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)

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?

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:
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.

Food Angel - Points for improvement
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:
Article on Jelly Babies
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)
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. 18:08, 22 March 2021 (UTC)

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.

First Sentence is too long and has a final confusing clause
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 mess
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.

This South African dish seems quite likely notable, as it's a traditional ceremonial food, but sigcov is elusive.

Discussion about James Morton (baker)
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 (talk • contribs) 22:01, 17 October 2021 (UTC)
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)
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)

John Antioco: Career section edit request
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.

How to remove cookbook part of food infobox

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:

User script to detect unreliable sources
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
and turns it into something like
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 request
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.
