“When people ask me to describe Gojee, I tell them to think of it as Pandora for your kitchen”
With a rapidly-expanding foodie following, including the likes of celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson, Gojee vets and recommends top-quality recipes from more than 200 of the world’s most passionate food and beverage bloggers. The “curated” dishes are each screened for taste and visual appeal by real, live humans.
The Gojee smartphone and tablet app takes the rich data and visual web design of gojee.com and carries it to the mobile device, creating a seamless user experience. Gojee’s website and apps are not just about the data, they’re also leading the way in user experience. “Because we eat through our eyes first, Gojee features stunning, full-screen images of our recommended dishes,” said Michael LaValle, co-founder and CEO of Gojee. “Gojee combines beauty and utility to create the ultimate food-lovers experience.”
Beauty is More Than Skin Deep
In addition to mouthwatering imagery, Gojee boasts a recipe database of more than 10,000 recipes. “When people ask me to describe Gojee, I tell them to think of it as Pandora for your kitchen,” said LaValle. “Gojee uses the most basic building block of a dish—the ingredients—and recommends a variety of quality recipes that fit users’ specific cravings.” For example: you’re craving chocolate but you have a bottle of maple syrup that has been gathering dust. Type these cravings and ingredients into Gojee and voila!: a mouthwatering recipe of spiced chocolate pots de crème with candied bacon and maple cream appears on your screen.
Gojee was founded in 2010 by Mike LaValle and Tian He. LaValle and He set out to create an application designed to offer users a customized way to find delicious and professional created recipes. Since its launch in fall 2011, Gojee.com has registered more 500,000 members in 200 countries.
