With the increase of individuals having an interest in the culinary world, the demand for recipe and lifestyle applications have increased. As we adapt to the changes around us during these trying times, many have also taken an interest in home-cooking. However, it may be challenging, especially for beginners to brainstorm recipes for cooking as they may not be equipped with the proper ingredients to do so. In this paper, we propose Feast In, a platform for web and mobile devices which aims to meet a user’s needs for home-cooking. The platform focuses on three unique features which make Feast In more than just the average recipe platform. Firstly, an improved search algorithm which goes beyond searching for keywords would help users narrow down recipes which they can use in their kitchen. Next, customization features which would create a personalized experience, specifically towards recipes results. This would provide individuals who may face allergies or dietary restrictions an improved experience as they would not have to browse through recipes which do not meet their needs. Lastly, the search-by-image function which utilizes image recognition and machine learning technologies. Users will be able to upload an image of food that they have come across and Feast In will return a list of results which matches the image uploaded. By conducting this research, we were able to propose a unique lifestyle and recipe application which would aid users in searching for the perfect recipe.
