It's for 'cost savings' apparently. I'm not sure how an existing series of web pages and data being wiped will save money but there you go. Goodbye BBC Recipes. You were delicious.

I said the same thing to Katie. There'll be a tiny saving for admin of those pages I guess - unless the comments section has become host to some kind of war between rival brands of cooking oil.

They will indeed be sadly missed - honestly, I didn't use them as often as I'd like, but it was great to just get some ideas of wtf to do with what was in the fridge! All very well sticking up the recipes that have been on tv for 30 days, but a lot of the time, they're not simple recipes I'd want to use..

Having got rid of a load of recipe books because "you can get everything on the internet", I'm a little peeved about having one internet recipe option whisked away from me :(

I use copymethat.com to store all the good recipes I find elsewhere on the web. I may need to spend some time copying all the ones stored in my bbc recipe file too :(
