Last week, I asked if you would be interested in having me launch a Your Weekly Questions section in the newsletter and on the website. The idea is to get everyone talking and make it easier for you to get answers to your burning questions. Below are the questions I received for this week. Please feel free to comment on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments section. I will aggregate and post your responses next week.
Do you have any burning questions? Send them my way ( danielle [at] foodtechconnect [dot] com) and I’ll include them in the newsletter next week!
Nick Smolney asks: What sort of online recipe sharing resources is everyone using? I personally go for allrecipes.com – but am not thrilled with the lack of social resources (adding friends, seeing what they are bookmarking/adding, etc.) I’d really like something where I could share family recipes with other members, and we could collectively create a database. I remember hearing about something similar to wikipedia where members were collectively creating recipes. But can’t locate that site.
See the comments section to read Nick’s excellent round-up and insights into would make the recipes a “web2.0 multiuser experience.”
Nichelle Stephens: Not an app, but @bakespace has been facilitating recipe sharing for years.
Christine Rico: I’ve used tastebook.com & Createmycookbook.com 4 printed collections, #foodtech #recipes
Harlan Harris: For small groups, I’ve been pretty happy using sites like sites.google.com to create Wiki-like pages for sharing recipes. Doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the mammoth recipe-specific enterprises, but that might be a good thing for you.
Deidre Hopp: you should check out Foodbuzz and Social Culinaire
Danielle Gould: Try Love With Food. Yummly is a relatively new, semantic recipe site.
Ofelia Mangen asks: What are you doing to make your community more sustainable?
