The Story

What started out as a trivial goal to learn how to cook soon turned into a substantial frustration with existing online recipes and their general lack of context, accuracy, and organization. We thought to ourselves, "Well here's a good opportunity..." So as an experiment, we hired a chef, set up cameras and light boxes, cooked up a storm, and scribbled notes furiously. After a very exhaustive (though gastronomic) evening, we realized that not only did we need to create a better recipe source but also a simpler recipe creation tool. Thus, we built Kitchenbowl, the mobile app and website for cooking enthusiasts to easily share and discover recipes!
