Punchfork uses tweets and Facebook likes to rate recipes by popularity from top culinary sites such as 101 Cookbooks, Serious Eats, and The Kitchn. We then present them in a beautiful magazine-like visual layout.
Punchfork uses real-time data like tweets and Facebook shares to measure which recipes are grabbing the attention of users. We uncover the latent sentiment in sharing patterns on social networks.
Our proprietary rating system assigns each recipe a popularity score from 1 to 100. The higher a recipe’s score, the more it has been talked about and shared on the web.
Traditional recipe sites list page after page of search results in no discernible order. With Punchfork, you see only the highest quality recipes, presented in a beautiful magazine-like visual layout.
Punchfork shows the latest posts from food blogs and recipe sites in one unified place. New recipes appear on our site usually just minutes after they’re published.

Punchfork offers a new take on the traditional online food site by taking top quality recipes from the best culinary sites like Serious Eats, Simply Recipes, The Kitchn and 101 Cookbooks and using customer tweets and Facebook recommendations to rate them. Then they are presented in a beautiful magazine-style easy to use interface.
