It seems to me this question was a poor example for their question (which was likely meant to address questions of a trivial nature). The Easy-Veg question can be split in two directions, and I would like to know how people are viewing it:
Should it be left as an objectively answerable, nice and specific question to suit this individuals specific needs (which the OP will need to provide), OR converted to Community Wiki format as a standard 'important learning books' CW question?
In the former case, the question fails spectacularly by being incredibly broad, vague and has no discernible criteria for evaluating any expertise in a given answer.
In the latter case, it is very list-y, but that doesn't mean it's a failure. Looking at the stackoverflow democracy, cream-to-the-top example this question pretty much fits the bill.
- In a more interesting case, it could possible be restructured into an incredible useful list broken out by region/climate or other sort-criteria in line with cooking.se's list of glossary translations.
What are your feelings on this question, it should be restructured before it's roots take too strong a hold.
