The web cookbook that doesn't suck.

#Project status

I am kind of deprecating the site, since it was basically a response to Luke Smith's challenge to make a minimal recipe site and he's since launched his own site that not-surprisingly has garnered quite a lot of attention. I recommend you check based.cooking

I will still keep this site up for the foreseeable future, probably until I get tired of paying the domain yearly fee. If, for any reason, you are still interested, you can still submit your recipes by email or pull request.

#Publishing your recipe

Send a git patch with your recipe and if it's (not bloated) fine I'll merge it. Every recipe is kept in its one folder under the content/recipes/ directory. The name of the directory should be the approx date you submit your recipe followed by the name/slug of the recipe.

Take a look at the content/recipes/ directory for examples of recipes and how to format them.

#Building the site

This website uses Zola to generate the html files from the templates and markdown. To build the site run:

zola build

To launch a lightweight http server for development purposes run:

zola serve -p 8080


  • Finish Russian and Spanish translations
  • Maybe add some kind of search functionality on the backend
  • Maybe add some way to categorize recipes
