Tastebook - your own customized cookbook


If I were to give Tastebook.com a rating, it would get 5 stars just for the idea.

Tastebook allows you to create custom-made recipe books by choosing from an array of available recipes on the website (thanks to Tastebook’s partnership with Epicurius.com) and/or by adding your very own.

After registering with the site, you can start selecting the recipes that you would like to include in your very own Tastebook. Once you're done with your selection, you can pick a cover to customize, and then – before finalizing the process - you can review the created cookbook page by page. Every Tastebook can include up to 100 recipes, which can be added at any time; this means that for all the unused recipe credits, you will get remaining credits to be incorporated afterwards. Its practical design makes it very easy to add and remove recipes from the book over time.

Tastebook is a great idea not only for organizing your own recipes but also for a very personalized present. When I recently moved from Amsterdam to my new hometown Stockholm, I put together a collection of my favorite recipes for a friend of mine. While my original intention was to put them together in a nice folder and add pictures, in the end the moving stress caught up with me and I ended up sending my collection as a Word file via email. If I had known about Tastebook back then (and if they shipped outside the U.S.), I would have gladly paid the $34.95 price to put together a very personal and beautiful cookbook.

Via The NY Times.
