  • Hi Albert this seems amazing so we can use the work on any of these sites, with an API that was mentioned does this mean we would get a feed of recipes to our site for a subscription fee, so we are free to download recipes from those sites? thanks for taking the time to reply

If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page at https://www.epicurious.com/, you will learn the following information:
