Neowin.net ~ where good food tastes bad lol

Cooking isn't really "Tech" related is it ? But would be interesting to see what other nationalities around the interwebz , whizz up in the kitchen :D.I may even post my infamous "White Widow" cup cakes recipe.

A cooking section would be fun and I'd love it, but it's not very interesting on an international scale.

Aside simple things many recipes by foreign cooks are impossible to make since you can't find the right ingredients. I live in Belgium, and even though our stores are pretty good when I look up a Nigella.com (UK) recipe there's often a lot in it that I can't find. I'm sure that many of the things I make contain things you can't buy in the US or UK either.

But it'd be nice and I'd love a cooking section, even if only to share pics of what I cook :D
One of my specialities: penne + completely fresh tomato sauce with meatballs and bacon and a layer of mozzarella slightly roasted in the oven. Family favourite :D

But the site already has tons of traffic, it's not like it would be starting a new site just for cooking. People aren't going to go "oh the cooking sub forum is looking empty, I'm not going to come back to Neowin". IMHO the best way to see if it would work is create the forum, give it a 30 day trial and see where it is in 30 days.

You my friend are a very clever person :p

I'd consider contributing some of my non-secret creations. (Y)

However I wouldn't drown my efforts of good layout, a nice recipe, international measures, photos and all that in a cooking pot of miscellaneousness. :sleep2:

Am I the only one anymore that thinks a tech site should be well.... umm..... tech...

we've turned from a tech site into an anything goes site as of late on the forum end... I see more political debates then tech debates.... if we had reviews of new food gadgets, then yeah sure go for it!

If it wasn't for the breadth of this forum I wouldn't bother coming here that often, because quite frankly I can only take a certain amount of tech talk a day and the additional topics just make it easy to stay on this site and not come and go all the time.

It's like a living room to me.

So no, I don't think we should limit our topics and should cherish anything that's popular.
Neowin is more than a tech forum quite obviously and the suggestion it should be just that always annoys me a little, because the variety of what can be found on here sets it apart from the rest, although there are some other forums that follow a similar strategy.

Neowin is NOT the place to go if you want tech-only talk and are annoyed by the existence of stuff on the side of your browsing.

not saying we shouldn't have other topics, it's just gotten so much away from tech anymore...
