The cooking assistance mashup helps end-users to easily sequence useful tasks around recipes. It aggregates different technologies like textual translation, unit conversion, communication facilities and intelligent text processing for multimedia content. Flexibility and ease of use is obtained thanks to our graphical mashup technology called Biologeek. Biologeek uses knowledge management and context-aware service customization to allow end-users to intuitively create mashups without the need of being highly technically skilled.

To test the mashup, you should use Firefox exclusively.
