Gourmet Recipe Manager

Gourmet Recipe Manager

Gourmet Recipe Manager is a manager, editor, and organizer for recipes intended for the GNOME desktop environment (although it does not need all of the GNOME libraries to run).

It currently has support for MealMaster and MasterCook import, including 1 and 2 column MealMaster recipes and plain text and XML MasterCook.

In addition to allowing you to edit, import, search and categorize recipes, Gourmet generates shopping lists sorted by category. It has a simple mechanism for allowing you to designate "pantry" items that you already have and don't need to buy, which will gourmet will remember between sessions.

Gourmet can also calculate nutritional information for recipes.

Features include:

  • Simple searching and sorting
  • Clear display of recipes and nutritional information, with individual recipes opening in their own windows, just like recipe cards drawn out of a recipe box.
  • Easy recipe editing
    • A keyed ingredient list which allows searches and shopping-list generation to understand synonyms (like aubergine and eggplant) and ignore ingredient descriptions (i.e. to treat "tomatoes, finely chopped" as "tomatoes" for the purpose of searching and generating shopping lists.
    • An intuitive spreadsheet-like editing interface
    • An alternative, fast form-like ingredient entering interface (which allows you to easily type ingredient lists without looking at the screen.

    • Support for pasting ingredient lists in from your clipboard.
    • Support for grouping ingredients within a recipe
