    It shouldn’t be difficult to add a recipe to your WordPress site.

    Recipe Hero adds a new custom post type, recipe, to your website. Adding a recipe is just like adding a post. You can add everything from the recipe’s yield to the equipment needed, the cooking time to the ingredients – everything will be automatically formatted for Google Rich Snippets and Pinterest Rich Pins.

    Navigate to to see all the new recipes you’ve added. You can easily customise the CSS to your liking and make it look perfect. It’s automatically set-up to be responsive, clean & beautiful.

    Roadmap: I’d love for you to get involved in the future of Recipe Hero. Please come visit the Recipe Hero Trello Roadmap


    After creating your first recipe, you’ll normally be able to go to: to view an archive of all your recipes.

    You can also visit Recipe Hero > Settings and choose a Recipe Page. This will turn the chosen page (created through Pages > Add New) into a recipe archive, showing all of your recipes. This is useful for then making that page your home page (in Settings > Reading).

    There are also 2 shortcodes included with Recipe Hero:

    • [recipes] – displays multiple recipes (see docs below)
    • [recipe] – displays single recipe (see docs below)

    For more about displaying recipes, check out our Displaying Recipes documentation.


    They’ll come automatically through the WordPress dashboard – just relax and cook.
