MacGourmet:Cookbook Released


Cookbook, a brand-new new plug-in for MacGourmet, adds the creation of real PDF cookbooks to MacGourmet.

Pick from a variety of cookbook styles, create chapters and specialized image and text pages, and specify the order of the recipes in each chapter. MacGourmet's new cookbook builder allows you to optionally include a cover image, table of contents, and an index of ingredients. It also allows you to create a PDF suitable for upload to print-on-demand services like Lulu.com, CreateSpace and CafePress. Cookbook is the perfect thing for building that family cookbook you've always wanted to create.

If you want to see a sample of what's possible with Cookbook, you can download a sample creation to get an idea of some of the things that can be done with it. With Cookbook, you can choose from a variety of cookbook styles, there are a bunch available.

Cookbook is available in the same way that Mealplan and Nutrition are, as an optional add-on to MacGourmet. You can to try it out, and if you like it, you be able to add it to MacGourmet for an introductory price of just $9.95. If you don't need it, you won't be forced to pay an upgrade fee to get something you don't want. Cookbook is also part of MacGourmet Deluxe which is available from Mariner Software, if you purchase that product suite.
