It's up to your guide data, so short of editing the data before the
recording, not really.  (I.e. category isn't really user-editable data.)

You should probably create a "cooking" recording group (recording groups
are user-editable data) and set all your cooking rules to record to that
recording group.  You can also move all your existing cooking recordings
to the cooking recording group.
