Where are my recipes stored?
Your recipes are stored in a file named MacGourmet4Database. This file is usually found in your Documents folder unless you chose another location for it the first time you ran MacGourmet Deluxe.
You should back up this file regularly, preferably to your cloud account, another computer, a thumb drive or external hard drive.
Note: You cannot move this file without updating Advanced Preferences, and you cannot rename this file. If you do either of these the application will not be able to find your database and will try and create a new one.
If you purchased MacGourmet Deluxe through the Mac App Store, you'll need to contact Mariner Support so they can direct you to where Apple requires the database to be.
