To undo the act of cooking.
2019, Andy Brennan, ''Uncultivated'' (page 65)
- You can't uncultivate anything, in the same way you can't uncook your food.
1999, "y2kilroy", ''New Freeware Utility to uncook mp3's!'' (discussion on Internet newsgroup ''alt.music.mp3'')
- Hi all! I have developed a freeware utility to uncook MP3's...
2000, "Xorys", ''Creating audio CD from mp3 files'' (discussion on Internet newsgroup ''alt.music.mp3'')
- If you "uncook" a file that isn't "cooked" you will just mess it up (and I don't know of any way to fix it then) - so uncooking should be used with caution (I'd suggest never over-writing the original file).
