Recipe and ingredients ontology with Neo4j

26th April 2017 in London at CodeNode

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from Neo4J April Meetup

Gousto is an online retailer that delivers recipe kit boxes with exact quantities of fresh ingredients and step-by-step recipes. Customers can pick from a weekly menu, consisting of 22 different recipes. It is vital that the menus are balanced and contain a wide range of recipes, with, for example, different cuisines and different protein sources. Designing these menus can therefore be a time consuming task. In order to automate and speed up this process, we needed a way to measure the similarity between recipes.

We therefore implemented a recipe and ingredient ontology into NEO4J, which gave us the flexibility of structure we needed to look at recipes from different angles and ensure our menus are varied enough.
