I came across a project called Gourmet Recipe Manager today. I’ve not really done anything with my computer to support cooking (another hobby of mine) but this looks intriguing.
I particularly like the idea of computer-generated shopping lists. For a couple of months now, I’ve been thinking that it might be about time I had another week of Indian cookery but it’s just been too much hassle to sit down and work out what ingredients I’d need; the whole point of the exercise would be to extend my vocabulary rather than to develop my ability to improvise from the ingredients I normally have in.
Of course, if I get round to installing it, the next step will have to be networking the kitchen!
