Help updating ADM article re: cocoa products[edit]

Hello!, David here with Archer-Daniels-Midland Company. I've posted a request at Talk:ADM (company) to update the article re: cocoa products. The Products section suggests the company still produces cocoa products even though ADM's cocoa business was sold in 2015 (as mentioned in the article's text). I'm not editing the article myself to comply with conflict of interest rules, and hoping an editor or two here might be able to help update the page for me. Thank you! ADM DavidW (talk) 15:50, 13 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Hi again! The above request has been answered, but I've since shared two additional requests at Talk:ADM (company) to update basic product information:

List of fictional vegetarian characters nominated for deletion, comments are requested[edit]

Hello all! I was deeply disappointed to see today that the article I created on September 7, not even 20 days ago, was nominated for deletion. Please comment on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of fictional vegetarian characters so the page can be saved, even if you aren't a vegetarian. The more people who comment, the better, as I'd like the page to be improved. Thanks! Historyday01 (talk) 05:39, 27 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Date of establishment of Lower Queen Anne Store[edit]

A check should be made of the date of the establishment of Dick's at Lower Queen Anne. Having lived near the store in the 1970's (1976-1989), I recall it was a Burger King originally -- since I ate more than one Whopper there. That store then closed and was replaced by Dick's. The date may be 1984, not 1974. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:00, 30 September 2020 (UTC)[]

Status of Greek subsection at Mediterranean cuisine[edit]

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)[]

Baked apple has an RFC[edit]

Baked apple has an RFC for possible consensus. A discussion is taking place. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments on the discussion page. Thank you.

User:Spudlace has unilaterally redirected Baked apple into Cooking apple (without merging the well-sourced content), while creating a new article on German baked apples. Input from the Food and Drink community would be helpful. --Macrakis (talk) 19:15, 7 November 2020 (UTC)[]

Mormon foodways[edit]

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 parameters[edit]

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)[]

Food Angel - Points for improvement[edit]

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 Babies[edit]

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 Aikens[edit]

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)[]

Triple Crown[edit]

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[edit]

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 " the Western European." is referring to. Needs to be clarified or removed. (talk) 18:09, 9 August 2021 (UTC)[]

Food article mess[edit]

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 Yenhloko[edit]

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

List of breads[edit]

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 categories[edit]

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)[]
