Say Chef

What is it

Imagine you are in the kitchen with flour already on your hands and you need to look up a recipe. This app is for you.


A hands-free kitchen companion app to ease the cooking process.


The program uses the Houndify API to understand what you say and then searches through an online database of recipes using an API from Yummly to get ingredients instructions.

Written in Swift and designed with Photoshop, Illustrator, Marvel, Pen and Paper.


Jono Sanders (@sjono), David Keller (@fossil12) and Sarah Schechter (@sheckshow) designed, developed, and code Say Chef during PennApps XIII in the Spring 2016 at the University of Pennsylvania.
