Here’s to recipe management for the 21st century!

Introducing MacGourmet Deluxe 4, the most powerful food and drink management experience for the Mac! And, of course, El Capitan compatible.

Import recipes from your favorite websites. Create, edit, and scale your recipes. Share them via email and Facebook. Break down and illustrate the steps for your recipes with images, as well as written directions. Use the Chef’s View for distraction free cooking. In addition to cooking notes, you can now build up a library of notes about beer, cheese, as well as wine. There’s a place for tasting notes, brewery, pricing - even pairings. Enhance your recipes and your notes with images. Make shopping lists from your recipes - even combine multiple lists. Plan out meals for your family or a formal dinner.

Concerned about nutrition and how many calories you consume?

MacGourmet Deluxe will calculate the calories and nutrition of your recipes. If you have a collection of great family recipes, creating a cookbook of them would make a great gift. Use the Cookbook Builder to do it and have a PDF of it that’s suitable for printing.

Not sure what to have for dinner? Use the Ingredient search or let MacGourmet Deluxe suggest a recipe for you.

Share with other MacGourmet Deluxe users - via a Mac or iOS device - when you sign up for an included, free Mariner Cloud account where you can store and sync all your information.

Cloud sync function is hot garbage

So, unlike any cloud service I've ever used, rather than upload the recipes you have saved locally, it downloads the "null" stuff from the cloud.

Just deleted all my recipes. Thanks a lot you dopes.

Save your money people.

Bad, Bad, Bad

This is not a good program, you cannot change any this like you want it. It is made for the person who made the program. I want a program that I can coustmize like I want. I wasted my $40.00

Dont WASTE your money

I bougt it to download recipes off the internet. Apparently the one function it fails at most of the time. This is a Pile of Crap so save yourself the money and the aggravation.

Developer Response ,
