mezzanine-recipe provides the blog post type “Recipe”. The Recipe blog post type represents a single recipe.

Create a Recipe blog post in the Mezzanine admin (naming it something like “Recipe”).

The template for the Recipe List can be found at templates/recipe/recipe_list.html and for a Recipe Blog Post at templates/recipe/recipe_detail.html.

  • Periods and times: WorkingHours, CookingTime, RestPeriod
  • Cooking info: ingredients, portions, difficulty, categories
  • Text data: title, summary, content, comments, ratings

To Do

  • Implement some tests
  • Add single cooking steps to Recipe
