Another look at GNOME recipes

It has been a few weeks since I’ve first talked about this new app that I’ve started to work on, GNOME recipes.

Since then, a few things have changed. We have a new details page, which makes better use of the available space with a 2 column layout.

Among the improved details here is a more elaborate ingredients list. Also new is the image viewer, which lets you cycle through the available photos for the recipe without getting in the way too much.

We also use a 2 column layout when editing a recipe now.

Most importantly, as you can see in these screenshots, we have received some contributed recipes. Thanks to everybody who has sent us one! If you haven’t yet, please do. You may win a prize, if we can work out the logistics 🙂

If you want to give recipes a try, the sources are here: and here is a recent Flatpak.

Update: With the just-released flatpak 0.8.0, installing the Flatpak from the .flatpakref file I linked above is as simple as this:

$ flatpak install --from

      1. What about internationalization ?
        Units and language preference (with optional fallback) might be included in it.

        1. Recipes is fully localizable. There’s a handful of translations already, more will surely appear soon.

  1. It would be good to add some options to add exclusion filters for those with food allergies or vegans/vegetarians so that only recipes without certain ingredients would show.

    1. We can mark recipes as being e.g. vegan, or nut-free, and there’s filtering by this in the search bar.

  2. I grok from the last post why you’re not just refreshing Gourmet, but Gourmet import would be nice if you can swing it. (Krissa has a few hundred recipes in it still…)

  3. FWIW (maybe more a flatpak comment than a recipes comment), doesn’t say anything about flatpakref files, and flatpak remote-add doesn’t seem to like that file, so I have no idea what to do with that flatpak link :/
