    cooking

    Hi

    Does "What is cooking?" mean the same as "What's going on?" or "How are you doing?"

    Thanks

    ***NOT A TEACHER*** Yes, it does. It probably sounds more idiomatic (the way native speakers speak) if you use the contraction: What's cooking? Here in the States, people (especially younger ones) say, "What's up?" Or if they are talking really fast: 'sup?"
