New cookbook website ckbk

Recommended Posts

Just came across this new website that seems to have features of Eat Your Books for free or you can upgrade to paid version and access full recipes.  It is not up yet but I signed up to be notified when it is launched.  I am probably interested in the free version.

Hi chefmd - Eat Your Books has a free option as well. In fact you can search our database of 1.6 million recipes without even being a member. You need to be a member to create your own Bookshelf - for a free member that is up to 5 cookbooks/magazines and unlimited online recipes or with a Premium paid membership you can add as many cookbooks and magazines to your Bookshelf as you own.

I did not realize there is a free option for EYB.  I will let a few friends interested in EYB know that.

With the great search features it is easy to find what you are looking for.

I wonder if the new website can match all the information and articles provided at EYB.

I go to the site daily to read their new articles.

Also, the membership is very active at making comments about recipes they have made.  I always check the notes section of recipes I am about to make to see what is said about it.

It seems to me that the site that @chefmd linked to is trying to replace individual user collections of cookbooks by licensing content of their own selection of cookbooks - their website says, "500+ licensed books with more than 100,000 recipes," much less than is indexed on EYB but it apparently includes the actual recipes.  

I think I read of it being called, "Spotify for food,"  or "Spotify for cookbooks."

I really appreciate that feature and have been trying to be better about adding comments.

I signed on to the free trial and half price offer this morning and will use an upcoming road trip to see how I like it. On first encounter, I am finding the navigation and browsing rather clunky. I am used to using cookbooks on my Kindle, and was expecting that look... not even close!  That being said, I will withhold my final verdict until I have given it a fair try out.
