Just think of it as Spotify for cookbooks!

Like so many cooks, we were frustrated by drowning in irrelevant search results when Googling for recipes, and the impracticality of searching through shelves full of printed cookbooks. If only we could get access to all the best culinary content in one place... There had to be a better way!

To solve this problem, first we built a list of the most essential cookbooks of all time, brought together with the help of more than 800 chefs and food writers, who contributed their personal top 10 lists.

Guided by these recommendations, and with support from our advisors, we worked with publishers, agents and authors to license hundreds of the best classic and contemporary cookbooks from the UK, USA and beyond.

The ckbk service, which will be accessible both on the web and soon also a mobile app, has been designed by cooks, for cooks, to make this fantastic content . Unlike other sites, ckbk doesn't offer just a sampling of recipes – subscribers to ckbk get unlimited access to the complete content of each cookbook. The service offers a seamless and natural way to explore the best cookbook recipes, with instant search from any device and personal recommendations to guide you to the most relevant dishes. 

ckbk gives you all the tools you need to put a great-tasting, stress-free meal on the table and have lots of fun doing it too.

Boundless Discovery Browse new cookbooks, explore exotic cuisines and different techniques, and check out personalized recipe recommendations, seasonal articles and podcasts and videos for fresh ideas.

Build you skills How-to videos and reference material to give you confidence in the kitchen

We are pleased to offer a range of great rewards for any pledge from $5 to $500 (or more). You can subscribe for yourself, give a subscription to a friend or family member, or just make a pledge large or small to help us get the world's best cookbooks online.

We'll be sharing more details of our author cookalongs/Q&As, and previews of our featured recommended cookbook recipes over the course of the kickstarter campaign

Here is just a small sample of the books that will be available on ckbk. For a more comprehensive view, see our ever growing list of licensed titles.

Identifying the best cookbooks and licensing them for ckbk has required patience, perseverance, and a lot of detective work...

Through our kickstarter we are bringing together a community of passionate cooks and food lovers who will, as founder subscribers, be the first users of the service. Tips, recommendations, ratings and comments from fellow users will be central to the ckbk experience. These contributions from the community will help to make ckbk a truly living resource, and our founder subscribers will be acknowledged on the site for their vital role.

The ckbk web app is now in testing with an initial subset of licensed content (already around 20,000 recipes). Support from founding subscribers will help us to accelerate our conversion process to bring the full ckbk collection into digital form.

Risques et défis

ckbk is the culmination of years of work by the founding team.

The most significant challenge was to put in place licensing deals with rights owners. This has been successfully addressed with more than 500 licensed titles offering a critical mass of high quality cookbook content - a collection that continues to grow as new licensing deals are added each month.

Digitizing such a large and disparate collection of cookbooks and making their content available via the friendly, modern ckbk interface, is a major undertaking, but the prior experience of the ckbk founding team both in cookbook publishing, and in groundbreaking digital publishing ventures (BioMed Central) provides the ideal background for this work.

We already have more than 15,000 recipes converted and available through the beta test version of ckbk. By the end of September 2018, we aim to have more than 100,000 cookbook recipes available through the ckbk service.

In the event that the digitization and conversion process takes longer than expected, we will extend the early access period offered to founder subscribers.
