How do I import recipes from MacGourmet?
Please submit a ticket to MasterCook Support and send us your MacGourmet file (*.mgourmet) as an attachment. We will convert it for you and send it right back. If it's too large to attach, please upload it to www.dropbox.com or Google Drive or somewhere similar and send us a link. Or, you can use CB2CB to convert your file. See USING CB2CB below.
In MacGourmet select/highlight the recipes you wish to export. Then select Export from the File menu. In the Export window that appear from the drop-down list for Export As, select the .mgourmet format.
