New Recipe Symbols Available

New Recipe Symbols Available

Back in 2019, Family Cookbook Project introduced add special icons to recipe titles to call special attention to them in a cookbook table of contents. Recipe symbols were a big success and many contributors started using them. Many people also asked us to include additional symbols and that is what we have done. We have added 9 new symbols that are now available:

  • Paleo
  • Vegan
  • Keto
  • Dairy-Free
  • Pressure Cooker
  • Air Fryer
  • Updated Kosher
  • Instant Pot
  • Low Carb

As the editor you can add these recipe symbols to any recipe right after you have entered the recipe title on the “Add a recipe” page. There is a drop-down menu to select the symbol to be included in that recipe.

For recipes already added to your cookbook, you can edit that recipe and add a symbol of your choice.

A key of icons and their meanings used in your cookbook will also appear on the bottom of your table of contents page. If you don’t include a specific symbol, it will not be included in your icon key list.

This new feature will be available on both the site as well as the site.

Please let us know how you like the new recipe symbols.
