New, Food section with 50 apps, 25,000 recipes

We've added a new section to the Keys Gallery to highlight 50 apps containing links to 25,000 recipes around the world. Take a look!


Cooking books are one of the largest segments for the book industry. Tens of thousands of books are published each year and sell tens of millions of copies. Unfortunately, each book kills trees, uses oil, and damages our environment.

Each of our 50 apps is equivalent to one 400-page book. Every download saves a shrub, a can of oil, possibly a dolphin, and one mind. That's one good motivation to produce so many apps with links to such a huge library of recipes.

Rather than accumulating more cook books for your coffee table, wouldn't apps on your phone or tablet be more convenient and better for the world?

Concept Map for Foods

Recipes allow inexpensive vacations - a discovery through the foods we eat. The apps allow us to explore various lifestyles and understand our connections with cultures around the world through the foods that we eat or would like to enjoy.

Each app highlights one food ingredients (ie beef, pork, chicken, seafood, desserts) by countries of the world (eg Europe, the Americas, Asia)
  • Download any app to find more apps.
  • Tap the left flow selector for the list of countries.
  • Review the photos. Tap the photo to visit a website for the recipe.
  • Tap the right flow selector for recipes by food ingredient.
  • When you see an app you like, bookmark for easy access from your phone or tablet.
Thus, this app becomes a 400-page book with 400 top recipes for desserts from Europe. This app is a 400-page book with 400 top recipes for fish from Asia. There's even an app for 400 bug recipes. ;-)

Simple, useful, enjoyable - like any coffee-table book, but without killing our environment. Find your favorites.

Apps are Not Perfect

These apps also highlight the immaturity of web development for different regions of the world. For example, here's an app for the cuisine of India. For the majority of these large city destinations, the photos don't link to recipes. Most of India is still not on the web.

We've released these apps as a social statement so that we can observe the progress of the web in large developing nations, such as India. Watch as these photographs become relevant in the coming years - as India adapts to the web.

Oh, BTW, these ebooks are free. Enjoy!
