Recipes overview

Recipes are the backbone of an operation, and opsi was built to manage your recipe book in a simple and familiar way. Below you will find the features that make up recipes on opsi.

Categories: The category that recipes will fall under (ex. Appetizers, Entrees, Garde Manger, etc.). You can create and manage your categories the way you want, and also use them as recipe books!
