There are a mil­lion and one cook­books out there — each one of them claim­ing to be the best at some­thing, whether that’s cakes, easy-to-cook meals, veg­e­tar­ian, Ital­ian, stove-top-based and ev­ery­thing else in be­tween. But none of these books could ever hope to be the best at all of these things. ckbk is at­tempt­ing to be the one ser­vice to rule them. Hav­ing cu­rated a list of “the most es­sen­tial cook­books of all time” with the help of hun­dreds of chefs, the cre­ators of ckbk have now worked with the pub­lish­ers and writ­ers of those books to bring to­gether the ul­ti­mate col­lec­tion of recipes. At the mo­ment, this will be a web-based ser­vice (with an app com­ing soon) and will give sub­scribers un­lim­ited ac­cess to ev­ery­thing in those es­sen­tial cook­books. You can ei­ther search for a spe­cific recipe, browse for some­thing new to at­tempt, share and save what you’ve found, fil­ter by cui­sine or di­etary pref­er­ences, make a shopping list, as well as watch how-to videos to make sure you’re juli­en­ning just right. While many home cooks have some kind of cook­book or app to help them whip up a storm in the kitchen, this ser­vice looks pretty great. The only draw­back will prob­a­bly be the sub­scrip­tion cost.
