Editors' Review


MacGourmet Deluxe can help you collect, edit, use, and share your favorite recipes and recipe-related notes in an easy, intuitive, iTunes-style interface, which is much improved over previous versions. This Deluxe version includes all three optional plug-ins for MacGourmet: the Mealplan (to help schedule meals and sync up with iCal), Cookbook (for creating and sharing PDF cookbooks), and built-in nutritional data from the USDA database (which makes it easy to calculate nutritional info for entire recipes). The main recipe interface is highly customizable and includes a large, easy-to-read "Chef View" for laptop-assisted cooking, which you can control with speech recognition or an Apple Remote. MacGourmet's recipe import assistant and integration with Safari makes importing recipes from the Web almost effortless (especially for the app's supported list of over 40 popular recipe sites).

MacGourmet also makes it easy to compile cooking notes and shopping lists (for easy printing or export), along with a shopping list history. Tools for taking notes on wine help you keep track of personal ratings, bottle labels, and "cellar info" (such as date opened and maturation date), and recent updates also help out aspiring food bloggers with support for MacJournal. Overall, MacGourmet is one of the best applications of its kind on the Mac--and though slightly pricey, the Deluxe version offers a good value given the cost of the optional plug-ins.

"terrible product and tech support"

November 26, 2014  |  By shelleyjen

 |  Version: MacGourmet Deluxe 4.1


no pros for the new version


terrible- would give it zero stars if I could. The company I would also give zero stars. I have been raving about the old version of this product for years until I was forced to "upgrade" due to the old version no longer being supported. Now my shopping lists no longer sync. Customer service is absolutely non existent and tech support no longer responds to calls or emails since they can't figure out the problem. As far as I'm concerned it is theft for them to take money for something that doesn't work. Of course you can't reach anyone at the company to even try to get your money back. I'm so disappointed as this program was like my right hand to me. I was constantly using it and have spent thousands of hours creating the database. I have been promoting this product for years and this is the treatment I get.

Easy to use


Crashes for no apparent reason.
Menu planning feature is woefully lacking and mostly useless.


With each software update I hope the crashing problem will be addressed and it never is. Crashes don't happen very time I save or delete a recipe but certainly more often than it should. If the crashing problem were resolved I would give this 5 stars.
