Hi, we’re PureWow and we have a cookbook hoarding problem. Our stacks runneth over...and we just can’t stop.
Here’s the deal: It originated from 1000 Cookbooks, a list of the 1,000 most essential cookbooks of all time curated by food writers and chefs. Ckbk will offer free and paid subscription access to cookbooks that have been digitized in a giant, searchable database.
Founders Matthew Cockerill and Nadia Arumugam carefully chose each book in the collection, with help from experts (like Nigella Lawson, for one). So far, they have a robust selection of 500 books (both old and new) and more than 100,000 recipes—and it will only grow from there.
Subscribers will get unlimited access to the complete content of available books: a search engine with extensive filters, seasonal podcasts and videos,and personalized recommendations based on recipe preferences. You can even make recipe “playlists” to share with friends and family (slightly more appealing than the “mid-2000s party jamz” playlist you shared last week on Spotify).
