What web sites will MacGourmet Deluxe allow me to import from?

Authors list
On 8/18/15 we introduced MacGourmet Deluxe 4.2 which addressed the web import problem that we have had for several weeks previous. Due to a significant amount of original third party code that was recently deprecated and shut down by the host, we were forced to totally rewrite this functionality. In a nutshell, MacGourmet and MacGourmet Deluxe are now parsing the data from recipe web sites _within_ the application opposed to using the third party software as it did before. Moving forward, this will be a much more effective way of importing recipes from recipe sites. You can download the latest version (assuming you originally purchased from a non-Mac App Store entity. If it was from the Mac App Store, just log in and download the latest version) here:

Please note there are only a handful of supported recipe web sites (22) in the Recipe Import Assistant at this time (late 2017). We will be adding more over the next updates. If you have a favorite site that isn’t listed, please send us an email to and we’ll try to add it. Some sites are extremely technical to parse so it may take some time to get those types of sites integrated into the app. We also will be implementing this new code into Gourmet Mobile.

One caveat to this new web import functionality is that older versions of MacGourmet/MacGourmet Deluxe (pre-MacGourmet 4) rely on the online code that was shut down and unfortunately can’t be salvaged. If you have a pre-MacGourmet/MacGourmet Deluxe 4 version and wish to use the new web import feature, you will need to upgrade to MacGourmet Deluxe 4, which you can do on our web site here:

As a sidenote, if you are running the Sierra or High Sierra OS, we strongly encourage upgrading to MacGourmet Deluxe 4 (whether we had this import issue or not) as Version 3 is no longer being developed and isn't completely compatible with Sierra or High Sierra OS.

Thank you for your patience with this issue. 

 As of Late 2017
