So what would you rather have – a small box stuffed with pieces of paper that is, well, mostly in order and where, after some frantic looking, you’ll be able find what you wanted? Or a nice, tidy, well organized, easily searchable file? That’s a trick question, right?
Get rid of the box.

MacGourmet Deluxe takes you beyond the kitchen. The Nutritional Database included in MacGourmet Deluxe will keep you up-to-date on the nutritional value and details of all your recipes.

And if you own MacJournal, you can take advantage of the integration between MacGourmet Deluxe and MacJournal and post your recipe to your own blog account.
If you cook, you love to share.
People who cook just naturally love to share their creations. That’s why we’ve included a Cookbook Builder in MacGourmet Deluxe. This robust feature puts the production of a real cookbook right at your fingertips. Create a cover, a table of contents and divider pages; insert pictures and format the pages and the size of the book. Turn it into a PDF that’s publication and print ready so you can send it to the printer of your choice. What a great gift!
Wait! There’s more!
MacGourmet Deluxe comes filled with hundreds of recipes from places like the National Chicken Cooking Contest and the National Beef Cook-Off, to name a few. You can add to those recipes by visiting the macgourmet.com web site to download recipe packs such as, Pork: The Other White Meat, which are sample recipes from The National Pork Council. Yep, you guessed it – Mariner worked with the developer of MacGourmet and with his help we created MacGourmet Deluxe, which has all the extra features not available in MacGourmet, such as Nutritional Analysis, the Cookbook Builder and Meal Plan.
Make notes about your favorite wine!
MacGourmet’s Wine Notes feature allows you to catalog information such as winery, region, sub-region, vintage and style of your favorite wine. Record all your tasting and winery notes. Add a picture and the cellar information and-just like that-you’ll have more than just a memory of that wonderful glass of wine.
