    Kitchen PC frontend?

    Anyone know of a frontend or touchscreen friendly software for a kitchen pc? Mainly i'm just looking for a way to easily browse through recipes and ingredients without a keyboard

    There's a bunch of recipe programs out there but none look too touchscreen-friendly. Feature-wise they do look promising though. Barcode scanners that'll allow you to inventory your kitchen and then keep you up to date on when things are expiring, automatically generated shopping lists, etc...

    Someone was going to do a plugin for RoadRunner but I don't think it got very far. It's something I have also considered so the the missus can have a terminal running it in the kitchen, but it'd have to get to the end of a long queue

    This could easily be done with MS Access

    Thats if u want it just for recipes you can set MS Access to easily have them in the database and also u can use active x plugins to have a webbroswer (IE) in access and read emails aswell

    If it's for basic stuff like that u can knock it out in MS Access in 1hour with purdy graphics
