Gastronomixs – Thousands of recipes, always in your pocket
The culinary platform Gastronomixs.com helps their 28,000+ users to be able to always find inspiration and never stop learning in their culinary careers.
Building blocks for endless culinary creations
Gastronomixs provides students, teachers and chefs with building blocks for endless culinary creations and stimulates the creative thinking process. It’s a digital platform that allows you to browse through thousands of professional tried and tested recipes, create entirely new dishes or learn more about certain cooking techniques. The platform simplifies your creative process by looking at ‘components’.
A component is a basic preparation method that revolves around one single ingredient. A component is not a dish, but part of a dish. You could think of components as being LEGO® bricks. They give you the ultimate freedom to create new dishes or adjust existing ones.
For example, you enter the ingredient ‘tomato’ on the platform. Your results will show all the techniques that work with tomato, so think jelly, compote, sorbet, crisp, powder etc. One quick search on a familiar ingredient you commonly use can introduce you to applications of that ingredients that you had not previously considered.
On Gastronomixs you find components of ingredients, such as tomato, salmon, pork belly and green herbs. Next to this you will also find components of basic recipes such as dough, sauces and dressings and also you can find components of techniques, e.g.: cooking sous vide, fermenting or marinating.

Working with recipes that are shared and used by professional chefs
All recipes on Gastronomixs are tried and tested in the Gastronomixs Test Kitchen, based in The Netherlands. The platform is used by over 28,000 professional chefs and students. The recipes are created by the culinary team – but also shared by many world renowned chefs. When selecting chefs who share recipes, the originality, quality, and practicality of the recipes are key. With the launch of the renewed platform in July, 120 new recipes have been added by 4 fantastic chefs: Merijn van Berlo (Netherlands), Benoit Dewitte* (Belgium), Jp McMahon* (Ireland) and Ben Murphy (England). The recipes shared include typical examples, such as those from classic preparations, unique fermentation techniques, and high-end components like ‘crystal bread’, to preparations of wild picked herbs and flowers. In the future more chefs will share components with users of Gastronomixs.
Collections to organize your inspiration
To better organize your inspiration, do your homework or prepare your lessons, you can easily store components in a so-called collection. A collection can be a dish, a selection of your favourite components or a thematic collection (e.g. all dessert components or components with fermentation as a technique). Already thousands of chefs created collections on the platform.
So you can save all your favorites in your collections. But you can also quickly create new dishes. Imagine you want to get started with the fish corvina. You want to get started with the lightly smoked corvina terrine. At serving suggestions you can see that this combines well with tomato, jalapeño, and Huacatay mint. Then look for suitable components and you can create an unique new dish in just a few minutes!
