It is the collection of memories, traditions, recipes, meaning and the reasons why we cook and eat what we do. A recipe is more than just a set of instructions, it's a story that contains all of these things.
Follow us on Instagram, Pinterest or our closed Fareloom Community Group on Facebook for more hints, tips, how-to, stories, recipes and other inspiration.

Create Recipes & Food Stories

There are a few ways that this can be done. You can include memories and stories in the “Story About This Recipe” field in the first screen, after you select “Create a Recipe”. This can also be added or edited later by selecting the three dots on the top right hand corner of the recipe and selecting “Edit”. You can also add photos as the cover photo or throughout the steps. You may wish to add additional memories or thoughts in the “Final Notes” field on the last tab of the recipe when you are in Create or Edit mode.
If you have started to create a recipe, but may not have all the information at hand, you can save a draft of your recipe and come back to it later. Drafts will be shown by a pencil symbol in the top right hand corner of the recipe icon on your front page. Simply click on the recipe and continue to edit and add your details, selecting “Preview” to check that all the details you have entered are correct before saving your recipe. For more information on how to add a recipe and how easy it is see: https://youtu.be/4SzaEJX1Ybg
This can be done by selecting the + symbol on the bottom task bar, and select “Scan a Recipe”. You will be prompted to take a photo. Use the image selector (little white dots) to change the size of the scanning box to suit the website text, and select “Scan selected part” from the bottom of the screen. Then you can scan all other parts of the recipe. Remember to select “Done” on the bottom of the page, which will take you to the recipe template for you to edit and finalise your information. If you need to take a second photo to capture more information, select the 'x' at the top right of the screen and you will be able to take a second image to capture information from.
This is definitely possible, and can save you time. From your front page, select the + symbol on the bottom task bar, and select “Import a Recipe”. This will take you to a field where you can paste the URL of the recipe website. Use the image selector (little white dots) to change the size of the scanning box to suit the website text, and select “Scan selected part” from the bottom of the screen. Then you can scan all other parts of the recipe. Remember to select “Done” on the bottom of the page, which will take you to the recipe template for you to edit and finalise your information.
Yes you can store photos of your recipes either as the front image, within the steps of your method or end of your recipe.
You can save a draft of your recipe without images or photos. However, once you finalise your recipe, you will need to at latest have the front cover photo included. Including photos for each step in your method is optional.

Share Recipes & Food Stories

Yes you can. If you have a public recipe (rather than a private one) click on the three dots (in the top right hand corner) of a recipe in preview mode and select share. You will be able to share a link to the recipe via all social media platforms. If they want to view it they will need to sign up for a free trial. In future releases we will have available features for people that are mot members of Fareloom.
A recipe circle is a group of your friends or family that you want to share recipes with on a regular basis. For example, your immediate family may be the first recipe circle that you create, which means you would send an invitation to them on the “Community” tab, and once they have registered for Fareloom, they will appear on your list of friends. Then you can create your recipe circle under the “Circles” tab and select your friends and family from the “Community” list. For more information on how to create a circle see here : https://youtu.be/Iur0pItO_EA
You can invite your friends and family to be a contributor on a recipe, which means that they can comment and add their tips or memories. You can do this by adding a Contributor on the last (5th) tab of the recipe when you are editing or creating your recipe. Only the friends and family that you have already invited to be part of the Fareloom community or are in your recipe circles will appear as potential collaborators. If someone does not appear on the contributor list, you will need to invite them to Fareloom via the Community and Circles page, found on the task bar at the bottom of your home page. For more information about creating circles with your family and friends click here https://youtu.be/Iur0pItO_EA
Yes you can, in exactly the same way that you can invite contributors to your individual recipes, accessed when you edit or create collections. For example, you can create a collection called ‘Hamilton Family Recipes’. Add the recipes that you would like and then add all the members of the family as contributors.
You can send them a link to the recipe but they will need to sign up for a free 14 day trial to view it.

Gathering & Organising Recipes

Refer to “What is a Recipe Circle”
A collection is a category for your recipes that you can create to organise your recipes better that are grouped together by a common theme. Examples of useful collections might be “Gluten Free”, “Christmas” and so forth.
Yes. This is the very purpose of the Collections tab. When you select the Collections tab, you will be able to add a collection. You determine the name of the collection and then you can select all the relevant recipes that belong in that collection.
Collections are your own self-created categories of recipes, where books are collections that you have converted into a printable book or PDF.
Yes you will be able to do this by selecting the magnifying glass on the bottom task bar on your home page. This will bring you to a search bar where you can enter your criteria or search word/s. Only recipes that have been made public by others will be visible in this section. If you would like to share your recipes with the Fareloom community, you can select this on the last (5th) tab of your recipe when you create or edit your recipes. For more information on how to use the search function see : https://youtu.be/mxLOrWwuYNM

Preserving recipes and memories

Fareloom is designed so that for each recipe a food story can be recorded, photos of the food, media of handwritten recipes can also be attached to the recipe. In addition to this allowing friends and family to share their memories by collaborating on a recipe or a collection.
Yes. Once you have one or two collections of recipes you can use Fareloom to create an ebook using our unique design templates to take to a printer or send to our worldwide network of printers to design a keepsake for your family and friends delivered to your door. This will be at an additional cost but you will be able to design the finish according to your tastes.
