The headword is nominative plural.
[1] A false connection is made here between the headword -- for which see Aeschylus, Agamemnon 231 (dative plural), and next note -- and this adjective. (Seemingly, the headword has been misunderstood as the adjective no-branched, which has generated its opposite.)
[2] For cooks in this connection see Hesychius s.v., citing Callimachus fr. 563.
