What Is Recipe Buddy?
Introducing Gusteau, your personal recipe buddy! Baking and cooking will never be the same again! Gusteau is a voice-activated assistant that searches up recipes of your choosing, sorted based on time taken to make. Upon selecting a desired recipe, Gusteau will check if you already have the ingredients in your Loblaw's Click & Collect cart. If not, he searches the store for the highest recommended of the corresponding item and adds it to your cart. Simple as pie! Now, get cooking!
