For restaurant owners, bake shops, caterers, manufacturers of food products, chefs, and even home cooks. With Salt & Pepper, you can:
Create recipes with an ingredient list, procedure, yield, preparation time, notes, and photos/videos. Choose your recipe ingredients from your dynamically-filtered master ingredient list, then select various preparations (such as "finely-diced" or "sautéed"), from a pick-list of over 40 options.
Enter costs for each ingredient in your recipe, and Salt & Pepper will display the total cost of the recipe, and the cost per serving. Set a recipe's selling price, and Salt & Pepper will calculate the mark-up and profit information. You can also add "other costs" to your recipes, which can be a percentage of the total ingredient cost, or based on quantity, such as per serving, per batch, or per unit."
Use the Suppliers screen to create, edit, and delete ingredients. Changes made to an ingredient's name, price, allergens, food energy, density, or usable portion are applied to all recipes containing that ingredient. You can organize your ingredients by supplier, and further by category.
Record your inventory, and set minimum values. Salt & Pepper will calculate the monetary value of each stock item, and the total value of your entire inventory.
Scale your recipes up or down, or to a desired yield. The amount and cost of each ingredient, and the total cost of the recipe, are adjusted accordingly.
Separate a recipe's ingredients into multiple sections, such as "For the Cake", "For the Frosting", and "For the Ganache". Re-order your ingredients and preparation steps by dragging them.
Use one recipe as an ingredient in another recipe. When "Recipe A" is used as an ingredient in "Recipe B", the cost, allergens, and food energy of "Recipe A" become part of "Recipe B" (based on the quantity used).
Duplicate recipes, in order to experiment with multiple variations.
Track the expiration dates of your ingredients. If you choose, Salt & Pepper will notify you before your ingredients expire.
Enter densities for your ingredients. Densities allow the calculation of a recipe's cost or calories when an ingredient is purchased by weight, but the recipe measurement is in volume.
Manage shopping lists. You can add ingredients to your shopping lists directly from your recipes. Quantities from multiple recipes are automatically summed. You can arrange your store's aisles to match the physical stores at which you shop, and you can arrange your ingredients in the order that they appear on the actual store shelves.
Create notes, with checklists, photos/videos, and a due date (with alarm).
Create custom categories for filing your recipes and notes. A recipe or note can belong to multiple categories. For meal planning, custom recipe categories can serve as menus, such as "Rehearsal Dinner Menu". You can also create "outlets" to further categorize items based on location. For instance, if you operate a number of restaurants, you could create a separate outlet for each.
Link your recipes and notes to related recipes and notes.
Share individual recipes, suppliers, shopping lists, and notes with co-workers, family, and friends. When changes are made to a shared item, everyone receives the changes. You can also set "abilities" for each user. For instance, you can specify whether a particular user is allowed to view or edit ingredient costs.
Print your recipes, suppliers, shopping lists, and notes.
E-mail recipes and notes. You can send them in PDF format, and as Salt & Pepper data files, which the recipient can import into Salt & Pepper.
Use the Conversions screen to convert units of weight, volume, and temperature, and to perform price comparisons.
Sync your recipes, suppliers, shopping lists, and notes between all of your iOS devices.

Salt & Pepper Positive Reviews
Written for professionalsI have been in the food service industry since 1981, having worked in many different sizes and styles of restaurants and ultimately having one of my own for the last 20 years or so. The first time I opened this app (I’m not sure how many years ago) I knew it was written for someone like me. Thank you for marrying technology to how a ‘working kitchen’ functions. 👏👏👏
The one request I have is the ability to re-order ingredients after entering them into a recipe, sometimes procedurally things change 😎.EemyarVersion: 8.7.10
Great app for cocktail menusRecently got this app after trying several others and getting frustrated. This allows sub recipes for your recipes, pretty much any units you can dream of and the support team has been fantastic. I found a bug and they fixed in hours. I asked for a localisation feature to make it more useful to me and they implemented it with a day. Really impressed..PapalulaVersion: 8.7.10
Easyyyyyy costingThis app has made my costing life super easy. I’ve tried excel templates and it was just too time consuming and complicated. This is easily worth the $$. Absolutely no regrets..NikkitakeschinaVersion: 8.7.10
Best appI love this App.
It is a good alternative until my business become very big.
Any small food business should use this.Julien la belleVersion: 8.7.10
Love this appThis is so helpful to me as I am a home baker. How do I get on my iPad without purchasing again?.TrabennVersion: 7.5.1
Love the app! But...I wish there was a way to change the currency. I don't live in the states so the US dollar currency is useless to me. Other than that, great app!.Rmz95Version: 7.0.0
AmazingAmazing app! I was using excel prior to this. But this has just been amazing to use..SalkezVersion: 7.9.0
Good for small businessI sell homemade candies and spent hours making an excel spreadsheet - that kept having formula glitches. This works great and it is easy to change servings and get updated values so I can calculate a profitable retail cost - it also helps me check my margins if I want to offer a discount.
Now, if the creators would make a version for home crafters where we could input costs on items like beads, fabric, labels, etc that would be FANTASTIC..BfdivaVersion: 4.7.5
LoveI have an in home bakery and this helps me keep up with how much each recipe costs me to make down to the tea spoon.
Helped me adjust prices to make sure I profit off of my things!
Only thing I do not like is how it adds an ingredient every time you type one on the recipe card. I have "eggs" stored but sometimes I type "egg" and it doesn't know the cost anymore and adds it to my list of ingredients.
Other than that I love it!.Emilylynnboyd1234Version: 4.6.1
Great tool for cost calculations of recipes!So excited to find this tool! I bake cakes out of my home on the side and have been looking for an app that I could see what my actual costs are for different cake recipes and buttercream. THIS APP IS THE BOMB!!!
Works great on my ipad and syncs to my iPhone thru the cloud so when I am shopping I can adjust the cost of the item based on current prices. Love this thank you!!!!.FireflynrsVersion: 1.3.0
Great AppI recommend this program. The support area is great.Margy WVersion: 4.0.0
Great but needs workI love this app it is super awesome, but... it isn't easy to use. It's a little buggy. I want to use this for my business but it isn't easy enough to use yet. If this were worked out it would be an amazing tool for business. I'm having trouble with the costing piece. It's buggy. In my ingredient bin I've set costs and the item will show up in recipes but the cost info won't travel with it. Cost does not register in the recipe portion..Taser12Version: 4.12.5
Needs a calorie calculator too.So far easy to use. I Ike that you can add picture. I thought it calculated calories too. But it does not. So likely I will not continue to use it. I need a calculator that also calculates nutritional value. It would be silly to enter a recipe here then enter it into another calculator for nutritional value. Please add calorie calculator! Since you already add price calculator it can't be that difficult to add this. Thanks!.KyhatVersion: 1.4.0
Great appThis is an excellent app with lots of useful features, and is extremely reasonably priced for those features. My one complaint is that you have to scroll and choose a number to be entered, rather than just being able to enter it with the keyboard. If it weren't for this, I would give it five stars..AdreacooperVersion: 2.4.0
Too badWas very excited and pleased with this app, until realizing, after much time invested, that not all ingredients were transferred to the shopping list from a recipe. A tragic glitch..NextTimeMaybeVersion: 4.15.0
Great app!I’ve been using this app for quite sometime now, it helps me in my product costing. I hope you could have an android equivalent to this app, i want to have one also using my android phone since all my baking pictures are all in my android phone. Very great app! 😊😊😊.Qtfy_rheaVersion: 7.5.2
4.9999 star 😀This is a great app, especially since I have just started my catering business. I like it so much that I paid for the full version. There is one option I would like to see in a future update. When tapping on an item from the recipe screen to add it to my shopping list, it would be nice to add the quantity from that recipe (for example, 5 apples) so when at the store, I don't have to go back into the recipe to see how much I need to buy. Also, if I have two different recipes where I've added apples to my shopping list (one requires 5 and the other requires 2) it would be helpful for it to recognize the same ingredient and just add 2 to the number of apples I need. Thanks for an AWESOME app!.AdonicanopolisVersion: 4.2.0
An amazing appIf I could give this a 4 1/2 I would. What it needs to move to a 5 star is to either sync over drop box (not just iCloud) or give the ability to group share suppliers and even shopping list. This is my issue, as my spouse and I have two separate iCloud accounts and the app only allows sharing of the recipe.
As a bonus it would be great to have a meal planner (for specials or functions), but that isn’t as important..Chris JaxVersion: 5.7.0
Incredible appI use this app every day. I can’t tell you how useful and important this app has become for me. I truly wish it had desktop support for those times when you have to zip through 100’s of recipes and batch processing. But otherwise, amazing app..Anthony SestitoVersion: 5.6.5

Salt & Pepper Negative Reviews
Old and klunky (updated)This used to be pretty good. But I added over 2000 recipes, many which were scanned images. It started to hang up, needing to wait two or more minutes to open. The developer said it was my iPads fault, the only app to have that problem. I switched to Paprika 3 and learned what a modern app should be. With so many more features (including a direct download from an online recipe) I wonder how much longer this app will be around.
Update: The developer’s response says it all. This program is not meant to be used for a recipe collection; it’s really meant for businesses. From my experience it has no sorting or lookup capability, and is certainly not meant for scanned images. There are many apps out there that are far better for recipe collections and include features that Salt and Pepper does not have such as direct download from a web page and full size printing of scanned images..Birdkiller 1000Version: 8.7.5
Concept-Great! Execution-POOR!It has all the needed separate features... but the layout is absolutely terrible! You are also forced to do your inventory by supplier vs. by item - which is fine for established places who use the exact same suppliers - Always!, but we’re not all in that same boat. Was really excited to use the app but sadly, it fell very short and was more frustrating than its worth. Being told the app would automatically change my pounds of citrus fruit, into tablespoons of zest (it doesn’t!), did not help the frustration level. Really hoping the refund I put in for comes through.Kat-Dog33Version: 8.6.6
