MacGourmet Deluxe for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 15, 2009

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.
