Computer Cuisine Deluxe iPhone & iPad
Computer Cuisine Deluxe on an iPad and iPhone via the free FileMaker Go app


Computer Cuisine Deluxe is a desktop application available for both Mac OS X & Windows, including macOS Sierra. However, unlike other recipe programs out there that either don’t even have an iOS app, or charge extra for their app, Computer Cuisine Deluxe has a totally FREE companion app (FileMaker Go) which allows you to have your entire recipe collection in your pocket!

With Computer Cuisine Deluxe 8.1, the app will now adjust your recipe viewing/listing for larger iPhone devices like the iPhone 6/7 or iPhone 6/7 Plus. And right from your iPhone or iPad, you can search, email, and view your grocery list with ease. In fact, you don’t even need network coverage or data usage to view your collection…it’s right there on your phone, and it’s free!


You heard that right and that’s not a typo! I’m Mike, and I created Computer Cuisine Deluxe way back in 1990 where it began as a hypercard template to help my mother store her home recipe collection. In fact, Computer Cuisine Deluxe is the longest running recipe application for the Mac, and has expanded into a Windows version and a companion iOS app for iPhone and iPad. That’s really saying something. Computer Cuisine Deluxe has stood the test of time, and has come a long way!

So in an age when things come and go, or you might be afraid to invest in an recipe application that might hold your important recipe data in some odd proprietary format, well, never fear. I’ve always released Computer Cuisine Deluxe with the idea that your recipe data is yours. Computer Cuisine Deluxe always allows you to export your recipes in the most popular universal format possible, a tab or comma-separated csv file, and more.

So along with the fact that Computer Cuisine Deluxe has been around for over 25 years, it’s not going anywhere. So please give it a whirl, and download the free demo to see if you like it. It would make my mom (and me!) happy knowing that people around the globe are using something she inspired. 🙂


Unlike other software companies which may have a team of people working in a corporate environment, for over 25 years, Computer Cuisine Deluxe was, and has always been, shareware created single-handedly by me, Mike. 🙂

Coffee helps fuel my insomnia, and my insomnia helps fuel the development of Computer Cuisine Deluxe.
So any contribution to my coffee addiction is well appreciated, and in return here’s my favorite coffee-related joke below, cheers!

Q: How Did the Hipster Burn His Tongue?
A: He drank his coffee before it was cool. 🙂
