It’s a digital cooking assistant
Most cooking software stops at letting you organize your recipes. SousChef helps you cook, start to finish. Find a recipe, cook it, modify it and share it with friends & family—all in one application.
Tap the Cloud.
SousChef uses a cloud database made up of all our users' recipes. Every time a user enters a recipe it is submitted to the database and is instantly available for you to find and cook!
Have a secret family recipe you don’t want to share? SousChef lets you opt-out of sharing recipes.
What’s in your Fridge?
Find recipes based on what you have in your refrigerator. SousChef searches for recipes based on multiple ingredients and ranks them according to how many of each recipe’s ingredients you have. No more searching through hundreds of recipes to find one that you can make without a special trip to the store.
Cook with your computer.
It doesn’t make any sense to print out a recipe every time you want to cook, so SousChef includes a ten foot mode that lets you place your computer somewhere safe but still read your recipes from across the room. Ten foot mode features a high contrast fullscreen display with smooth transitions and only the info you need to know. While in ten foot mode SousChef can read your recipes to you and can be controlled via speech or a remote.
SousChef supports the Apple Remote and Keyspan Front Row Remote.
Substitute with ease.
Ever find a recipe that calls for Bok Choy and you happen to be all out this week? Wonder what† you can substitute for it? SousChef lets you substitute ingredients for each-other on the fly based on accepted substitutions.
†Swiss Chard may be substituted for Bok Choy.
Blog it. Email it. Share it.
Want to blog about that recipe you cooked last night? SousChef integrates with blogging software to let you blog your favorite recipes in style. Need to email that secret family candy recipe to your brother? Not a problem.
Ever find a recipe on the web you’d like to save? Our import tool makes it easy, maybe even fun! Just drag a box over each area of the recipe that SousChef hasn’t already identified and then click the correct label. Most recipes can be imported in just a few clicks!
