We know that sticking to a weekly food budget is important to many of you, and our latest update helps make that a little bit easier!
Now when you receive your weekly menu from Gatheredtable, any recipe that we suggest will include a budget indicator based on the price of the ingredients in the recipe ($ through $$$$). Based on our database of ingredients and grocery prices, we’re approximating the cost per serving for each recipe – from main dishes to sides to desserts.
Note that you’ll only see budget on recipes that come from the Gatheredtable recipe library (marked with a green ribbon), not recipes from your own library.
How we calculate budget: Excluding olive oil, salt and pepper, we price out all of the ingredients in a recipe and determine the cost per serving. $ is up to $1, $$ up to $3, $$$ is up to $5, and $$$$ is above $5 per serving.
Not only will you see the $ indicator on each suggested recipe in your menu, but you’ll also see the budget of each Gatheredtable recipe when you hit + from the menu page to search our library for an alternate recipe. (Filter by budget coming soon!)
This enhancement to Gatheredtable is based on requests from our fantastic community of customers! If you have an idea to share, please be sure to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
