Too Many Cooks Make Web 2.0 Soup…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on February 15, 2006

points out the rather useful looking Recipe*zaar.

Perhaps best thought of as the Flickr of the foodie world, Recipe*zaar is a database of more than 150,000 recipes, tied in with a community site. Lots to browse here, and the ability to search for recipes by ingredient is rather useful if the nice man from Ocado hasn’t been around for a while…

The only thing that’s missing is an ingredient translator (at least you can switch between US/UK/metric weights and measures). It’s an aubergine, not a bloody “eggplant” (though this recipe for Kuku does look nice)…

I wonder if it’ll work on the old Vadem Clio Windows CE HPC we keep as a web appliance in the kitchen…

    Recipe*zaar? Do you think perhaps they were aiming at Recipe*[tsar|czar] and missed?

    I still occasionally pull out a printed copy of the UK/USA/Oz “translation guide” put together for the alt.callahans cookbook. šŸ™‚
