Adding your own recipes

There are two ways to add your own recipes:

  • Add them manually from your desktop.
  • Add them manually in the app (Pro feature)
  • Import them using the ChefTap Recipe Recognizer from your device (Android only)


From your desktop:

  1. Go to the recipe list.
  2. Click New at the top of the screen
  3. Type or copy/paste your recipe into the recipe form.
  4. Click Save.


Using ChefTap on your Android/iOS device (Pro feature)

  1. Go to the main recipe list
  2. Tap the green (+) button in the lower right of the screen
  3. Tap “Type or paste manually”
  4. Type or copy/paste your recipe into the recipe form and save.


Importing text files on your Android device:

  1. Save each of your recipes as a plain text (.txt) file. Don’t worry about having any special format — your recipes will be imported using the same artificial intelligence network that we use with some web sites.
  2. Attach your device to your computer.  Copy your .txt files into the directory ChefTap/Import.
  3. Disconnect your device from your computer.
  4. Start ChefTap. ChefTap will try to import any .txt file that it finds in the ChefTap/Import directory.  After each file is imported, it will be deleted, so make sure that you have a copy.
