Q: Is the "eat where your food lives" program compatible with my operating system?


A: Yes, eat where your food lives is compatible with all operating systems. If accessed from a computer with internet access, all eat where your food lives features should be fully functional.


Q: Exactly how many recipes are available with my membership?


A: Eat where your food lives is a growing library of recipes from Chef Monica Pope. We focus on quality not quantity, so as you continue your annual membership to eat where your food lives, you will gain access to more outstanding recipes from Chef Monica Pope, as well as any enhancements to the program as they become available.


Q: How is "eat where your food lives" different from the hundreds of other computer-based recipe software programs on the market?


A: Eat where your food lives focuses on quality and ease of preparation rather than on quantity and universal serving numbers. With eat where your food lives, you can be sure that the recipe works for one person or an entire dinner party, since the serving size calculator automatically adapts the ingredients and the generated grocery list to accommodate whatever number you’re preparing for. 


Q: So when I alter the number of servings and the ingredients change, what happens to the "eat where your food lives" directions?


A: All of the recipe directions have been written in a manner that will work for any number of servings. Don’t be discouraged when the directions remain unchanged. For example, if an original recipe calls for ½ teaspoon of salt and in step 3 you need to add ¼ teaspoon of salt, the direction will simply say, “add half of the kosher salt.” Therefore, even when you increase the ingredients, you will still be adding the same proportion of salt.


Q: Each recipe in the "eat where your food lives" collection provides a list of necessities to ensure I have all the necessary appliances before cooking. Will this list be altered if I increase or decrease the serving size on the program?


A: You’ll need to use your own judgment when you change serving numbers. Chances are if you triple the number of servings, you’re going to need a larger bowl or pan! And vice versa for reducing the serving number. 


Q: If I get an error message when logging in, what could be the problem?


A: Since the eat where your food lives program operates online, you must have a solid, continual Internet connection! A disconnected Internet connection is the most common cause for log-in errors.


Q: How will I know when new recipes are added to the collection or if there’s been an upgrade in the program capabilities?

Q: What is the best way to use the Pairing Search Page?


A: The Pairings search feature allows you to perform very general recipe searches by a beverage category, such alcoholic or non-alcoholic, as well as narrower searches by a specific type of beverage and/or grape varietal, if searching for wine.  For example, if you have a bottle of Chardonnay that you would like to drink and need to find a recipe to pair with it, go to the pairings page and click the + box on the Alcoholic category.  This will open all of the alcoholic categories.  You can then click the + box on Wine, then the + box on White Wine, narrowing your search by one level each time.  You will then see the list of all white wine varietals that the cookbook offers.  Select Chardonnay, by checking the box to the left, and click Search at the bottom of the page.  All recipes that are recommended to pair with Chardonnay will appear in the Search Results on the right side of your screen.
