Rezepte-Wiki (cooking recipes wiki) is a free collection of recipes, tips, and tricks all around cooking, baking, and adjacent topics. It was founded on 17 August 2005 by Daniel Beyer. The wiki uses the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license, as most Wikimedia projects—except Wikinews—also do.

The project aims at building a database for recipes linked to pages on ingredients and cooking techniques with many pictures so as to make it easy even to the unexperienced to prepare a dish. This is where the Rezepte-Wiki is different from most cooking websites.

The wiki became known when it was presented in Linux-Magazin and reports in news websites, such as Giga as well as through its co-operation with the platform.

In technical terms, Rezepte-Wiki is run on a MediaWiki installation.

In November 2014 the most active editors of Rezepte-Wiki left the platform due to excessive spamming the operator had not blocked for quite a long time. Instead, they founded the Koch-Wiki which basically is a fork of the content that had been gathered in Rezepte-Wiki. They moved there on 29 November 2014.

There also used to be an Englisch version under the name Recipes-Wiki which has been offline for a while already.

On 27 August 2015, Rezepte-Wiki went inactive, redirecting all requests to Koch-Wiki which is its official ancestor ever since.
