Though it may seem trivial in comparison to indexing millions of books in libraries, hundreds of thousands documents for publishers, and the endless financial data being indexed continuously, a new technology is indexing personal cookbook libraries for ease in searching for a specific recipe, ingredient or theme.

We found this very interesting information on Taiwan News in their article, “Technology is changing the once simple cookbook.” This makes me happy. As an owner of more cookbooks than you can imagine and that my husband thinks is necessary, being able to use them in a more interactive and organized way pleases the OCD side of me. Having faster access to meal planning ideas and gourmet potential recipes, pleases the foodie side of me. It is a good and rare thing when many sides of me are pleased at the same time.
