It’s been 24 hours since the MacHeist reveal, and the recipe cloud has already jumped to over 12,000 recipes – at the time of the reveal yesterday, there were only about 8,400! According to, over 18,000 bundles have been sold so far, which means that over $150,000 has been raised for charity. And there are still 13 days to go!

We’ve been hearing from a lot of users about features they’d like to see in SousChef, especially metric support and general international compatibility. We read every e-mail and take all feedback into consideration. Metric support and an iPhone app are at the top of our list. We’re taking our time so that the future versions of SousChef are something you can fully enjoy – and something we can be proud of. But by all means, keep the suggestions coming! Send any ideas for features you would (or wouldn’t) like to from this knowledge-base article.

Keep on importing!

Big News: MacHeist Reveal and New Features!

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Well, MacHeist has just revealed their newest bundle of software, MacHeist 3, and we’re proud to announce that SousChef 1.1 is a part of it! If you’re not familiar with MacHeist, we definitely suggest checking it out – it’s an awesome deal for any Mac user. You can purchase a bunch of the best Mac apps out there for a fraction of what you’d pay individually. 

But that’s not the only important news. This latest version of SousChef offers some major new features and some equally important minor ones. First of all, SousChef will now generate grocery lists from any recipe. This was one of the most-requested features from our users, and we’re really happy that we can bring it to you. The grocery list function also supports customized lists – you can add more items to an existing list, or create one from scratch instead of from a recipe.

It is also now possible to import an entire MacGourmet library into SousChef in one step! The Import menu now gives you the option to “Import MacGourmet Database.”

Version 1.1 also has improved conversions, stronger unicode support, and other improvements throughout the application. As always, check out our Support section for help with using new and old feature of SousChef!
