Wikichef's objective is to be the definitive collection of the world's recipes from authoritative sources.
Each recipe requires a title, followed by at least two notable references and then a sentence or two describing the recipe. Recipe pages should not contain the history of a recipe or any other editorials. After the description, the list of ingredients must be shown followed by the instructions. Next should be links to the recipes of notable variations with a quick summary of each variation. This is then followed by the references, a link to the relevant Wikipedia pages and then External Links.
Generally speaking, for a given food, there should be only one recipe per locale per language and the recipes need to be self-contained. Exceptions include variations where an ingredient is optional or substituted but the instructions and other portions remain exactly the same as the original recipes.
