We have printed three recipe books.

Monday, June 27th, 2011

In the social network of Mis Recetas we have published 3 books for their respective authors: Penchi Brown, Gloria Pischansky and Carmen Castillo, each with 1,000 recipes. It is the recognition of  Mis recetas/Euroresidentes to people who are passionate about cooking in generosity to share their valuable knowledge through the first community of friends specializing in food, cooking and gastronomy.

  • Penchi Briones is a native of Cartagena and its 1,000 first recipes (it has now surpassed 2,000) published in Mis Recetas served to inaugurate our first book. In the interview of Penchi Briones, you can learn many things about her and her cooking skills.
  • Gloria Pischansky, lives in Texas (EEUU), but she is mexican. In her 1.000 recipe book  there is an extraordinary collection of international recipes. She loves the Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Lebanese … soon we will interview.
  • Carme Castillo, is from Cataluña and  lives in Barcelona. She’s such a perfectionist that has worked really hard at each of her recipes so they are perfectly understandable. We will also interview her very soon.

These three authors have launched a project with IT & IS (still in design) which will soon see the light: the cookbook edition of Mis Recetas users and the posibility to order it online.

Soon any user / author of Mis Recetas can edit and comercialise his recipes in a book printed on paper through the Mis Recetas online shop.

The Social Network Mis Recetas has become a leader in this sector for  users in Spain and Latin America

We are also preparing new technology, based on structured data, which will position us in the most advanced technologies currently available on the network.
