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.

Cookbook Builder Is Useless - The old MacGourmet allowed me to make a great cookbook. The new version Cookbook Builder is useless. It has one theme and you can only include one recipe per page. Mariner Software stopped responding to customers in June 2014. They should not be selling this product if it cannot fully work with Mavericks.
Worst Application EVER!! - I have had this program for about 10 years… it works great ON the computer but getting it there is hell! Not syncing properly (I Lost 130 some recipes) and now the “Recipes” that is supposed to be at the top is mixed in with the recipes so I can’t search properly to find anything. I can’t move it anywhere! I have been up all night (it is 6:30 AM) just trying to salvage my recipes and sanity! DON’T buy it! I would rather write them out longhand!

Would like it if it worked - I regret investing my money in this app, and more importantly, my time. Too many promised features just don’t work. Their support and updates have been unacceptably slow over the many years I’ve used it. It can’t import from many of the recipe sites I use and every time a website updates their code, you have to wait for months or even years to get functionality back, if ever. I suggest looking for something else. This is a pattern with this program and Mariner Software in general that I have unfortunately grown all too familiar with.
Great App - This is a great app. Ive been using it for years. They finally allow syncing with the mac which i love. I had some problems at first but once i downloaded instruction booklet from the website and now its great. Still the best recipe database you can get.
