Hello. Tell me please what do you think about this idea:

A website where people post recipes. Other people can order ingredients for the dish on the website and authors of the recipes get a percentage of proceeds of their recipes. All ingredients are stored and delivered once a person decided to cook the meal. The idea aims to solve the problem of lacking needed ingredients at local shops and help chefs benefit from contributing to a community by posting recipes.

Strikes me as pointless. You don't solve the problem when the need exists, only later. By which time they could already order and recieve it off the internet. At lower cost with fewer middle men.

The ingredients are stored where? At the recipe author's home? Where is the money to be made? You need to think about the current supply chain for the world's ingredients and how impossible it would be to make an impact on that. There is no need, therefore you will have trouble finding customers for a business like this. Save your money.

Welcome to the forum. I see what you're getting at but I don't think this would work because it's not practical. First, it is very difficult to authenticate recipes online. There may be a bunch of legal issues associated with that. Then you have these ingredients that are stored somehwere. Are these in a warehouse? How long would it take to ship these items out if a person is hungry and wants to cook today?

The truth is that most recipe sites contain a function that compiles a shopping list if you want to make a recipe. I can find a recipe in the morning, stop by the market after work and cook the food by dinner time. And your final aim of solving the problem of lacking needed ingredients is a problem that was solved a long time ago - most shops are stocked with international ingredients and if they're not you can order stuff online. And the benefit of chefs contributing to a community by posting recipes, how does that benefit them exactly?
