Photo-based recipe recommendations for healthy, affordable eating

Looking for: Advisor, Designer, Developer
Imagine this: You see an interesting ingredient in a grocery store. You don't know what to do with it but it looks healthy/tasty. So you pull out your phone, open up RecipeGnome and take a photo of it. RecipeGnome immediately pulls up a list of personalized recipes from around the web which use that ingredient, and which suit your wallet, values and taste buds.

That's great, right? Now imagine you had multiple items in that same photo, what kind of recipes could you discover? What if you could share your customized recipes for a dish using that ingredient with a community that's excited to hear what you've been cooking up? Imagine if you could use RecipeGnome to share your discoveries and build a following around the great food that's cooking in our kitchen. 

And that's only the start. Imagine if this app could help you save money when you went shopping? The possibilities are endless.

RecipeGnome allows you to discover, create and share custom recipes using ingredients you discover, restoring the thrill of discovery and experimentation to home-cooking again. It also allows you to save money, and live a fuller, healthier and happier life through high-quality food.
