500,000 recipes indexed - that's a lot of data inputting!
Many people assume that this is an automated process - no, it's all
done manually! It's the only way we can provide such
precise and accurate recipe searches by ingredients and
categories. No other recipe search engine does this! We
have a wonderful team of indexers headed by Deborah who take
on any challenge they're given.
Larousse Gastronomique (3,880 recipes), Joy of Cooking (3
editions and 8,614 recipes), Noma (86 new ingredients),
Modernist Cuisine (144 new ingredients - see below) were
amongst the more challenging projects. The largest EYB
Bookshelves have around 200,000 recipes - most belong to libraries:
French Culinary Institute, Johnson & Wales College of Culinary
Arts and more recently America's Test Kitchen, but some
personal collections are also coming close.
