Welcome to /r/AskCulinary where we provide expert guidance for your specific cooking problems to help people of all skill levels become better cooks, to increase understanding of cooking, and to share valuable culinary knowledge.


Here's our FAQ. Please check it before posting!

Here are some of our most popular discussions and a few other odds and ends. Check it too!


Keep Questions:

Specific (Have a goal in mind!)

Detailed (Include the recipe, pictures etc.)

This will ensure you get the best answers.

Please avoid requests for recipes for specific ingredients or dishes (unless it's obscure and Google has failed you).

Prompts for general discussion or advice are discouraged outside of our official Weekly Discussion (for which we're happy to take requests). As a general rule, if you are looking for a variety of good answers, go to /r/Cooking. For the one right answer, come to /r/AskCulinary.

We're also avoiding brand recommendations or comparisons for kitchen equipment. Kitchen equipment preferences tend to be subjective and personal. Few people have enough experience with multiple brands to make useful comparisons.

We're best at:

  • Troubleshooting dishes/menus
  • Equipment questions
  • Food science
  • Questions about technique

Questions about what is healthy and unhealthy are outside of the scope of this subreddit. But if you have a culinary question that takes into account some specified dietary needs, we'll do our best to help.

While we are happy to answer general food safety questions, we're less comfortable with questions about the specific pot of soup you left out on the counter. See USDA's topic portal, and if in doubt, throw it out. There is a lot of space between the two, so we'll try to answer what we can if there seems to be enough information to give a reliable answer.
