Comparable food (cooking) group?

This group (alt.sewing) is wonderful. Now, however, I need a comparable
cooking group. When I google for recipes I can get plenty of new recipes,
but I need the advice and extra hints that come in this group, not to
mention the moral support which can be so helpful.
Is there such a place? Please tell me about it.
Meanwhile, very painful arthritis is preventing me from sewing, but I follow
your sewing ventures and adventures and enjoy them vicariously.
Please help if you know of any such group.
Thanks.

Well, there's rec.food.cooking, but if you think this group is nasty, as some apparently do, you will hate rec.food.cooking. They tend to be food snobs.
If you are just doing regular cooking, the freezer cooking list I was on

You can search the rec.cooking and the alt.cooking hierarchy at google groups. In additional to general, there are groups dedicated to various cuisines.

Are you dealing with specific dietary needs? If you need a group to lend advice for diabetes, for instance, there are several newsgroups with "diabetes" in their name. That's probably true for other health concerns as well.
If you just want new recipes, or maybe some specific ethnic food recipes, you can probably use the advanced group search at the Google archives:

We are trying to go organic so I am in a LOT of cooking groups, my favorite is:
snipped-for-privacy@yahoogroups.com and the ones I've found on in the news groups are: alt.food.recipes and alt.h.i.p.c.r.i.m.e.food.recipes There is also a website I use that is

I can't find alt.food.recipes, and my news server carries almost everything. Are you sure you aren't talking about rec.food.recipes? (which doesn't allow discussion about cooking)? If not, can you double-check the newsgroup name, pretty please with sugar on top?
Melinda, confirmed recipe junkie, with hundreds of thousands of recipes on her hard drive -- really!

So I went to look at it -- at least ten times as active as this group, but seems to be mostly civil conversation, with a minimum of off-topic digressions. As on any very active group, there are a few people you need to killfile, and a few people daft enough to encourage them by responding to their posts.
I didn't notice any advertisements -- but then I didn't open any posts with all-caps subject lines -- so they must be as "nasty" as this group about defending their right to have a conversation.

other than Sheldon, SW, Peter A & Joe Spare Bedroom (who has other issues besides food snobbery), who on rfc gets nasty? i'd agree it's going through a more chat than recipes phase right now, but if you request advice, you'll get it. Sheldon can be a disgusting jerk, but he does know cooking... lee

Well, that's LOTS more than happens here. I don't generally see whole threads here bashing individual people.
True. And if you request advice here, you get it as well.

well, i admit to skipping threads in rfc ;) i introduced Sheldon to misc.rural (we were discussing tractors on rfc. a bit OT) & he's more subdued there, oddly enough. still opinionated, but not nearly as nasty. :)
even recipes... i have seen that happen here too. i wish there was a nice beadwork group, but, oh well... i bet if i really had a question someone here could answer :) lee

When you have ten times as many people, you have ten times as many nutcases -- which means that you have enough nutcases to keep a thread going. In any large group, one must keep a large killfile.
But I think I'll unsubscribe -- I've been cooking longer than most of those guys have been alive, and these days I prepare only one very simple meal a day -- often something that goes straight from box to oven. My time would be better spent kneading bread.
I've recently resumed baking bread, and though I once wore out the dough hooks on a mixer, I find that hand kneading is easier -- if you make bread in batches that two people can eat up before it gets stale. In our case, that's one teaspoon of yeast, one teaspoon of salt, one cup of water, and two or three cups of whole-grain flour.
Which, it turns out, is exactly enough dough to make a pizza on Sunday evening. I use an old cast-iron griddle for a pizza pan, which makes lovely crisp crust.
Today's pizza had mozzarella -- I think I prefer the assorted scraps of cheeses I used before. I've a quarter cup of steel-cut oats soaking in the cup of water for the loaf I mean to bake tomorrow.
Ob sewing: I finally finished my "quick to make" wallet yesterday. Haven't decided what to work on next -- the nylon wind pants aren't quite as urgent as they were. (It *ought* to be the pile of mending.)
