yummly

A company offering a visual and semantic recipe search engine and aggregator.

Provider of a digital recipe platform designed to make it easier for users to find and share recipes. The company's digital recipe platform uses patented technology and proprietary data to understand food and taste and provides recipe recommendations to handy tools and helpful videos. The Yummly app is available for iOS, Android and web browsers. Yummly was founded in 2009 by David Feller and Vadim Geshel.

Yummly provides recipe recommendations personalized to the individual's tastes, a semantic recipe search, a digital recipe box, shopping list and one-hour grocery delivery (in certain regions). Yummly allows users to search by ingredient, diet, allergy, nutrition, price, cuisine, time, taste, meal courses and sources; and 'learns' about users based on their likes and dislikes. Yummly uses this information to categorize food for search and make recommendation.

In May 2017, the company was acquired by appliance maker Whirlpool Corporation. In 2020, Yummly is set to open a new permanent headquarters in San Carlos.
