The organisers behind Expo Milano 2015 - which starts in May this year - have launched a new app of recipes from all over the world.
The Expo World Recipes app is a simple collection of online recipes from food bloggers, chefs and different food organisations that are available through a web browser or a smart phone application.
Users and groups are encouraged to upload their own recipes to the site with over 4,000 contributors from 68 different countries contributing so far.
To keep in with the Expo’s theme of ‘feeding the planet, energy for life’ the app also tells people the nutritional value of each ingredient in the recipe and the impact they have on the environment.
Users will also be able to create shopping lists that will be available offline, allowing people to plan recipes at home and take a list of ingredients with them to the store.
To further link the app and its contents to Expo Milano, users can choose to search the recipe database by the different thematic clusters found within the Expo site that are broken down by particular foods groups such as rice, coffee, spices and cacao.
The app is available for Android and Apple devices and is free to download.
S.Pellegrino and Food for Soul, the non-profit organisation founded by Lara Gilmore and chef Massimo Bottura, form a new global partnership to drive social and environmental change and promote a sustainable food culture.
