Access smart recipes within a subscription model

The challenges of a recipe database

Most recipes are not written for online use. As a result, many potentials remain unused.

Inconsistent format

Recipes are available as Word files, pdf, Excel, database or even on paper. Mostly inconsistent and not standardized.

Ingredients and quantities

5 carrots, 100 g carrots or a handful of yellow turnips. milliliters or ounces. The reader can handle it, but an online shopping cart?

Important data is missing

Nutritional values, allergies, diets and much more. So far, the editors have been taking great pains to take care of that. This makes finding the right recipe time-consuming.

Restricted Licenses

So far, manufacturer-independent recipes can only be licensed expensively on a recipe basis or integrated by platforms with a backlink obligation.

Smart ingredients and amounts

Filters and sorting

The search for the right recipe can be filtered and sorted by numerous criteria. Gluten-free high-carb salads for vegans? You name it!

Interface (API)

All data can be queried via an Application Programming Interface (API). And since everything is database-based, third-party APIs can also be connected, such as online supermarkets.
