Your personal recipe assistant. Import recipes from your favorite cooking websites and customize them.

This app is for the home cook that uses the internet as their primary recipe source. Sous Chef Recipes allows you to easily copy recipes from any online source, from popular websites to personal blogs. You'll be able to tweak recipes to your liking so you remember your personal touches the next time you make your favorite dish.

Now you can even import recipes with your camera! Capture your favorite recipes from your cookbooks so you always have them with you wherever you go.

If you have an Amazon Alexa device you can also interact with your recipes using your voice. When your hands are messy and you don't want to touch your phone you can just ask to get ingredient amounts or recipe instructions. Look for the Sous Chef Recipe skill in the Amazon Alexa app.

Add your first ten recipes for free then subscribe ($0.99 USD/year) to add unlimited recipes.

Note that we do not guarantee access to any particular website since some recipe websites require membership and/or subscriptions. To load recipes from certain sites you will need to procure access independently of this app.

Sous Chef Recipes Unlimited subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current subscription year. Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the subscription year, cost of the renewal will be identified. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.

When recipe is open

This is great to use your own recipes with Show 5. When the recipe is open, Alexa can’t be used for anything else like setting a timer or converting measures. The links to directions are broken, so other than ‘Alexa, tell Sous chef to open ...recipe’, I can’t use the functionality and have to use the touch screen to close the recipe.

All Recipes Disappeared

This app has been great for many months! This morning I opened the app to find all my recipes are gone! I’ve come to heavilyRely on this app. I can’t find a fix for this issue online. I’m so sad I lost all the recipes I saved. Some were family recipes I have no way of getting back 🥺

UPDATE: changed my rating to 5 stars. Grant has helped me fix the issue. Amazing customer service and such a time saving product. I use this instead of copying recipes onto index cards because it can import recipes directly from a blog post. I’ll be a lifetime customer. Thanks Grant!

Developer Response ,


We released a new version of the app which means you should just have to sign in again. Your recipes are definitely not gone they are in a secure database. Please email if signing in doesn’t work. Sorry for the confusion!

UPDATE: Have you had any luck getting signed in? I just helped someone who forgot she had originally logged in with a family member’s email address to share recipes. Please contact us if you still can’t find your recipes

Convenient and straightforward

I love a lot of things about this app. You can easily organize recipes with tags and all different categories to make your time in the kitchen easier. You can also email it through the app or print it off if you’d like. The only thing that I would like to make a suggestion of is that, when printing a recipe, it could use some aesthetic upgrades (layouts and image scaling). However, it’s not really that important. What matters is that the information that you want can be accessed so easily.

Thank you for this app!
