Cookstr Helps You Find Recipes From People Who Know Their Onions
Here's one thing that people all over the world will continue to need even in the worst of recessions: food. And while there are many places you can go to if you want to discover great recipes for home cooking, Cookstr is launching a website later tonight at a press event in New York City that takes a different route than all the cluttered and user-generated content sites out there: it's all about the top chefs and cookbook authors, baby. Cookstr has managed to sign up over 200 star chefs, cookbook authors and publishers who contribute to a database of high-quaility recipes for a wide variety of dishes, with more being added every day (both chefs and recipes). The contributor list is impressive, to say the least, including people like Mark Bittman, Jamie Oliver, Mario Batali, Nigella Lawson, Daniel Boulud, Jacques Pepin, Julia Childs, Alice Waters ... the list just goes on and on .
