Cookpad, the Largest Recipe Site in Japan, Launches New Site in English


Cook­pad bills itself as hav­ing the “Best Japan­ese recipes from the largest cook­ing com­mu­ni­ty in Japan.” And that’s not just your usu­al web site hyper­bole. Estab­lished back in 1997, Cook­pad hous­es 1.5 mil­lion recipes cre­at­ed by a base of 20 mil­lion users. And it’s now a pub­licly-trad­ed com­pa­ny on the Tokyo stock exchange. This week, Cook­pad did every­one in the Anglo­phone world a favor by releas­ing an Eng­lish-lan­guage ver­sion of its site. Right now, you can nav­i­gate your way through 1,500 recipes and find dish­es like Udon with Thick Egg SoupVery Deli­cious Stir-fried Tofu with Shime­ji Mush­rooms, and Pan-Fried Autumn Salmon with Gin­ger Sauce. And if you’re patient, you’ll soon find anoth­er 30,000 recipes added to the site. It’s worth not­ing that all recipes are trans­lat­ed by humans, not com­put­ers, and the trans­la­tors are appar­ent­ly com­pen­sat­ed for their efforts.
