COOKPAD is Japan's largest online cooking and recipe sharing community. We have been subscribers and eager users of COOKPAD for a long time now. It serves as a brilliant resource of new recipes and is equally fab for new ideas for more familiar recipes too.

There are currently about 10,500 translated recipes on the new site a mere drop in the ocean compared to the 1.5 million recipes shared by passionate home cooks currently on the Japanese site. However, the people at COOKPAD are working on cherry-picking and translating on thousands more. 

Japanese food fans will love this site, it's teeming with great ideas, some traditional, some are more international dishes with a Japanese twist.....I will shut up now. Go and see for yourself....BE INSPIRED!!



  1. Thanks a lot for sharing! Strangely, I have never heard of Cookpad. I love Japanese food, and I prepare it at home for myself and my family (we are not Asians!). We all adore Japanese cuisine. Healthy and creative, just what I like. Also, I love going to my local library and borrowing new Japanese cookbooks. Right now I have two of them: Washoku by E. Andoh, and Japanese Soul Cooking by Tadashi Ono. I always find them very inspirational as well as soul and mind healing.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this site, you should share more of your own recipes on the blog too x

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this site, you should share more of your own recipes too (i noticed an aubergine one a while ago on instagram which looked delicious!) x


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
