no one uses the word "cookery." Maybe I could see "culinary arts," but cookery? The answer key has cooking, yet it was rejected.

Plenty of people use cookery. Just not in your corner of the world.

Are you calling me "no one"??? I'd definitely say "cookery" and saying "culinary arts" sounds incredibly pretentious to me.

Cooking can just be kupika, but yeah, I think "cooking" should be accepted for this too.
