Our bulk importer is currently in a beta release whilst we continue to test bulk importing. You can check it out here.
We strongly recommend only using the bulk importer on a desktop computer.
If you need help or hit an issue, please ping us a message with your bulk import files so we can find and fix any bugs.
We support bulk importing from the following:
|System||Supported File Types (* preferred file types)|
|Cope Me That||.zip (html)* / .zip (text)|
|Living Cookbook||.fdx / .fdxz|
|My Recipe Book||.zip* / sqlite|
|Paprika||.zip* / .paprikarecipes|
|Plan to Eat||.csv* / .txt|
|.CSV||.csv - find example format attached|
Instructions for importing .CSV file - If you'd like to bulk import your own curated recipes, you'll need to use our .CSV excel sheet and add all of your recipe information in this format. Find this file attached with an example in row 2. Once you have finished adding the recipe information. Sign into https://import.thecookbookapp.com/ then select .csv* under 'Plan to Eat'.
Note: This is an interim method whilst we continue to develop the .CSV import, it currently does not include all fields but has most of them.
