This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
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.
