Calculation methodThis price calculation is based on the average price of the ingredients in the recipe, which serves as a reference, and is used in various formulas to provide you with an estimated price.
Unfortunately the (average) price of the products varies according to several factors which are mainly :
- The season: especially for everything that is fresh vegetables and fruits
- The place: and thus the country where you are
They are logical, but they complicate everything, because the price calculation should take into account the place where you make your purchases, which, you will agree, is not easy for a website.
That's why all the prices that are indicated to you are on the one hand an average value (based on the average price of the product), and on the other hand a local value, to Western Europe, and more particularly to France where I live.
The pricesYou can consult the table of ingredients of the recipes, to see the price of each of these ingredients. Don't be too surprised by the values you will find there, don't forget that it is an average price, and especially per kilo, which sometimes gives surprising figures as for example for vanilla or saffron.
If the prices indicated here do not suit you, or are too different from yours, you can connect to "My EZ cooking" to redefine them to your idea, which will significantly refine the cost calculation of all the recipes on the site.
For example, you could decide that tomatoes are 3€ per kilo, because that's what you pay for them where you live, and in this way, all the costs of all the recipes that contain tomatoes will be automatically and instantly recalculated with your new price.
CurrenciesBy default the costs are calculated in euros (€), but you can get them in other currencies which are :
- US Dollar (rate : 1.0778)
- British Pound (rate : 0.8561)
The exchange rate is obtained from a financial site, and updated weekly.
Note: If you want another currency, contact me, and if the demand is big enough I will add it.
