    We have a lot of pictures of amazing dishes in the "What's cooking?" thread. And there are recipes interspersed in there. Which are very hard to find later.

    I really would appreciate having a dedicated sub-forum for recipes. I think it would make a worthwhile addition to the site.

    Let's face it: kitchen knives don't exist in a vacuum; we have them so we can cook stuff, no? ;)

    Not sure why a dedicated Forum is necessary...just start a favorite recipe thread.

    Yes, but we'd end up with hundreds of recipes in a single thread, making it hard to find them. That's my problem with the current "What's cooking?" thread: there are hundreds of posts, and the recipes are far and few between. It would work a lot better with a sub-forum with threads such as "crispy skin pork belly" or "chicken liver paté".

    I like the idea - easier to navigate. It would be fun to see the recipes behind what everyone's cooking!

    I would be terrified to write out precise recipes for all of you guys to follow.

    often time just the ingredient lists still can demonstrate how flavours/dishes are composed or put together
    although I'd also understand if people didn't always want to go thru the hassle

    How would you see it work? And are any others interested?

    I think it's a good idea.

    'course much of it will be in pro kitchen quantities. "Chop 37 quarts of onions and saute in 14 lbs of butter..."

    I definitely would be interested, especially if it was organized in a way to make recipes easy to find (the search function is not without limitations).

    I think it would be great! In order to keep it easier to find things, maybe subgroups for different recipe types: soups, sauces, beef, pork, desserts, etc.

    Love the idea, kinda can't believe there isn't one already.

    Being that I'm in my first week owning a Japanese knife I'd like to sort it by the most chopping & slicing possible ;)

    I’d love to have a thread in there for menus. Honestly, I can find any recipe I need but I’m endlessly curious how people put menus together. Here’s tonight’s for 16, this is what I have in mind:

    Apps
    Tuna pate
    Sardines with Mustard & gherkin
    Focaccia if I have time

    Pasta
    Buccatini with NeoNata and Mussels

    Main
    Roast Salmon with Salsa Verde
    Chana Dal
    Brussels sprouts with Oyster sauce
    Boiled Potato

    Dessert
    Cookies

    By the way, there’s seven fish in here

    I love this idea. I agree you can find them the old fashioned way, but it can be clunky at times remembering where things are.

    Well, one thread per recipe, preferably with the recipe name in the title.

    To keep things organised, rather than lots of sub-sub-forums, maybe we could use tags? We could create a whole bunch, such as "Desert", "Beef", "Appetizer", "Japanese", etc. (I believe the tags can be used in a search, yes?)

    I think this is a great idea. As Michi has suggested would work.

    To have a couple of photos added would also be a bonus.

    I think it would be fascinating to have the OG recipe with a couple photos, followed by photos and notes by others. Kind of a running evolution type of thing.
