EDIT: There is an FAQ question based on the results of this discussion.
I just came across the Chocolate Peppers question and have been trying to figure out what to make of it.
I can see how this could be a good wiki question. Sort of a reference for the different preparation methods for this ingredient and how they affect the flavour and other characteristics of this food. Roasting it will do X to the flavour, sautéing it will do Y, caramelizing will do Z. Great.
But the OP actually submitted his own answer and it's just a recipe without any serious analysis of any of the steps. To me, the question looks more like a recipe request than a question about understanding a particular food or ingredient.
To be clear, I wouldn't have batted an eye if the OP had put the recipe itself into a question with the tagline "help me improve this recipe" and including some of the specific comments that he already wrote ("Is this the right method for battering?"). But that's not we have. We have a question that seems to very strongly imply that answers should be in the form of recipes.
I believe we need to tread carefully here, as these types of questions have the potential to be great wikis but can also be used as loopholes for recipe postings. If the author had a great recipe that he wanted to share and receive feedback on, I think that the "recipe tweaking" format would be more appropriate.
What do you think? Should this question be closed? Edited? Left alone? Should we point the OP to this meta question to discuss the subtleties?
