Cooks Central was founded in early 2006. We wanted to build a community where fellow home-chefs can share and discuss all sorts of recipes. As opposed to traditional cookbooks or sites with published recipes, Cooks Central gives you a more diverse array of recipes.

We realized there were way too many sites that just published their own standard recipes, without any input from you. So, we built this site where our members run the show and decide what gets on here. To be more helpful, we added a review box, so now you can review any recipes that are here. Read reviews to see what others thought and if perhaps someone else came up with an even better way! We also have a glossary of cooking terms, a kitchen safety section, a measurement guide, a nutrition section, as well as a virtual recipe box, where you can add all of your favorite recipes!

We are currently in the process of building an interactive member forum, where members will be able to discuss anything from topics regarding food, to anything else under the sun! Our mission is to build an interactive community for our members where you can drop in at anytime, share information, get recipes, and chat about anything and everything!
