Little Sous is a digital publisher that focuses on children’s relationship with food. Filled with stories, recipes, and videos, the site’s mission is to turn the kitchen into a place where families connect and children become creative, confident cooks.
Personally, I need a recipe when I’m in the kitchen. I often search for recipes on my phone or tablet and follow along while cooking. Immediately I had front and back end ideas on how to improve the functionality. Moving ingredients side by side with the instructions, and creating a collapsable step by step feature reduces the need to scroll up and down and constantly losing your place. The back end of the site uses custom fields for the ingredients, units, and measurements to make future features, such as doubling recipes a cinch.
Little Sous isn’t just about recipes. The site includes instructional courses, stories, interviews, and videos. I designed and build a range of templates to handle the flexibility of content across the site.
About six months after the launch of Little Sous, they launched a subscription box service. I helped select the e-commerce platform and incorporated into the site.
