It has been a fast-paced and memorable first year for BakeSpace.com, the online social network and recipe exchange for people who are passionate about food. Launched on August 22, 2006, BakeSpace has grown to nearly 15,000 members who gather on the site to post, search, and exchange recipes, share culinary tips and build relationships with other food enthusiasts from around the world. Together they have posted more than 22,000 recipes on the BakeSpace Community Cookbook.
“Our goal is to preserve and update the age-old tradition of gathering in the kitchen to cook and socialize,” said BakeSpace Founder Babette Pepaj. “Over the past year, BakeSpace members have built a grassroots community where they can share their passion for all things food related.”
BakeSpace is designed for anyone interested in cooking or baking, whether they rely on the microwave or like to prepare gourmet meals from scratch. The site’s members come from 174 countries, and range from teenagers just starting to explore the culinary lifestyle to great grandparents who want to share and catalogue their treasured family recipes. The common thread among members is their passion for food and learning from one another.
