Recipe Slideshows

Chef has a feature called Recipe Slideshows which allow you to view a recipe fullscreen in a PowerPoint-like format that’s much easier to read while you’re cooking than the small text of a cookbook, or the regular view of a recipe in Chef for that matter. I’ve had that feature around for a while, but I noticed that Ana never uses it!

Her main complaint was that the ingredients weren’t always displayed so she’d find herself constantly flipping between the directions and the ingredients, to the point where it was just much easier to deal with the small text of the regular recipe window. This past weekend I made a few changes – the ingredients are always displayed AND it highlights the ingredients that are used for the current step. Click for the full image:

This is going into version 1.3 with a few other enhancements and fixes due sometime in January or February.
