Welcome to the DailyChef Beta!
Hello fellow foodies, cooks, chefs, and food bloggers! Thanks for joining me over the past 1.5 years and sharing my trials and tribulations in the kitchen as well as my love of food.
Over the years, I’ve noticed how hard it is to find recipes. Oftentimes I wanted to cook , but I didn’t know exactly what. No recipe site on the web knew what I liked to eat and nothing could recommend a recipe catered to my tastes and food preferences. And even when I knew what I wanted to cook, I’d get 100+ recipe choices for a dish as basic as lasagna. The effort required to sort through all the recipes might have led me to abandon cooking altogether if it weren’t for inspirational posts and great stories from all of you, my fellow food bloggers.
With all this in mind, today I’m proud to announce that DailyChef has become more than just a food blog. For the last year and a half, our team of engineers – all friends and fellow foodies – has been hard at work trying to solve this problem. We’ve built a revolutionary new product with the goal of helping you make the food you love. After consulting with professional chefs in San Francisco and New York, we think we’ve built an amazing recipe recommendation engine that will change the way you find recipes. In short, we are proud to introduce the DailyChef beta!
When you first sign on, you can start by telling us a few ingredients you like or don’t like. Even better, start browsing recipes and rating them “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down.” After every rating, our engine gets smarter and finds recipes that are better and better suited to your tastes. Now you don’t have to know exactly what you want to eat to find a recipe – DailyChef can help provide the inspiration.
We know that we have a lot of work ahead, but please join us as we figure out our next steps. After you’ve had a chance to try out DailyChef, click the Feedback link and tell us what would make the site work even better for you. We’d love to get food lovers like you involved. Create accounts, find new recipes and upload your recipes– if they mesh well with other user’s taste and flavor profiles, we’ll recommend it to them!
Thanks for being along for the ride. Onwards to a better cooking and eating experience!
