“…In fact, now
every single Athenian goes inside
and yells to his servants
and asks, “Where's my pot?
Who's eaten off the head
of my sardine; My bowl
of yesteryear—has it perished?
Where is yesterday's garlic?
Who nibbled at the olive?”

-Artistophanes (405 BC), The Frogs, card 971

Very Impressive

I really do enjoy this app it has a lot of great ideas for cooking and I absolutely love cooking especially older recipes!!!! I would just like to know if any new recipes come up everyday because the same recipes from yesterday were still showing. I was just curious if it just takes time to share new recipes but still a wonderful app and it’s so great to use!

Surprisingly Good

Downloaded this app out of curiosity thinking I’d check it out and delete it in a week or so. We have found it to be incredibly interesting and often share the stories. You don’t have to be foodie or culinary expert to enjoy it. 👍👍
