I love Food52, if you haven not checked them out, visit their website and check out their recipes. What started out as a simple recipe site has now steadily grown into what you see today. What brings me back to their site are their community driven recipes, specifically their “Genius Recipes”.

As a fun project, I decided to create a command line application that would allow me to search & view recipes through the command line.

Why I built a CLI for Food52

Late last year I switched jobs and joined Gobble, a premium dinner kit delivery service that helps busy people cook dinner under 15 minutes. I’m a huge fan of cooking and working at Gobble has allowed me to combine my love of cooking with my love of code.

I figured building a fun cli tool would be not only a good way to refresh my Ruby skills (we use RoR @ Gobble) but also a great way to commemorate this new chapter in my life.


This CLI application brings all the search functionality of but strips away the non-essential components such as comments and ads. Users can search for recipes by:

  • Keyword
  • Cuisine
  • Ingredient
  • Meal (Breakfast, Lunch…)
