What is Yummly?
Yummly puts every recipe in the world in your pocket. The most powerful recipe search, the recipe sites you love, your digital recipe box, recipe recommendations just for you, and a smart shopping list – all with you wherever you go. Yummly has the #1 iPhone, iPad, and Android apps in addition to millions of website visitors.
Yummly allows users to search by ingredient, diet, allergy, nutrition, price, cuisine, time, taste, meal courses and sources; and ‘learns’ about users based on their likes and dislikes. Yummly uses this information to categorize food for search and make recommendations.
