Chefs / Recipe Sites

Support Philadelphia Chefs on

When launched last year during the pandemic, it was designed to help chefs make a side income from selling their recipes online. The site had been in development before COVID-19 struck, but the need for it became more urgent when mandatory lockdowns occurred, shuttering restaurants and leaving many chefs furloughed. As a Philadelphia-area-based startup, started reaching out to local chefs.

Users who sign up for a membership on can search, download and save recipes by a chef, meal, dietary restrictions, skill level, and more, and keep the recipes in their Recipe Box. Members can also grab a recipe from anywhere on the web and save it to their Recipe Box. Additionally, they can upload their favorite recipes for access from any device, anywhere. Each saved recipe can be annotated, shared, and used to generate shopping lists.
