What's cooking with Pinterest?


“I mostly pin things for parties and holiday-themed treats for school,” she said. “I am more likely to pin a recipe and adapt it to something that I can pull out of the pantry. I am terrible about remembering ingredients at the market that are not on the usual weekly to-buy list.”

Toa Green, chef/owner of Thai Orchid Café in Lexington, Ky., said she pins recipes “as a way to keep up with dishes I want to try and make. It’s a fun way to get ideas for recipes or new dishes.”

Carolyn Gilles of Lexington, chef/instructor at The Wholesome Chef, said she likes Pinterest for recipes because it’s so visual.

“I like to get inspired by what a dish may look like, colors or even just presentation ideas,” she said. “I don’t follow anyone in particular, but I usually like to search by foods that are in season and find recipes based around locally available foods.”
