ZipList, Inc., the market-leader in online and mobile grocery list and recipe box management, with partners ranging from AOL’s KitchenDaily to Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, today announced that multiple award-winning food blog, Leite’s Culinaria, has teamed up with ZipList to integrate a fully-branded recipe box and grocery shopping list along with custom recipe search, in order to enhance the overall experience of food lovers and at-home chefs who frequent the site.

Leite’s Culinaria ( was launched in 1999 by David Leite, author of “The New Portuguese Table: Exciting Flavors from Europe’s Western Coast,” which has won numerous literary awards. Leite’s website features culinary resources and cooking tips, as well as an extensive collection of recipes from the United States and abroad. Leite’s Culinaria has been presented with prestigious awards from the James Beard Foundation, World Food Media and Writer’s Digest, among others.

The unique value proposition of ZipList is that recipes found on Leite’s Culinaria can be saved to a user’s personal recipe box that syncs recipes and shopping lists across the web and mobile devices, creating a single, searchable database tailored for each user. ZipList can be accessed from any ZipList-powered website and on free ZipList Android and iPhone apps, all of which sync seamlessly. Importantly, users can search and save recipes, as well as manage all of their shopping lists and recipes, directly from within Leite’s Culinaria using a single account.

“Leite’s Culinaria offers an extensive collection of world-class recipes. We’re excited to be able to work together to help readers engage and act on these culinary experiences,” said Geoff Allen, Founder and CEO, ZipList, Inc. “These new recipe tools allow users to have a single, easy-to-use recipe box and shopping list no matter where they are on the web.”

“The first time I saw what ZipList could offer us and our users, I was mightily impressed,” said David Leite, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Leite’s Culinaria. “We’d been looking for a long time for a personal recipe box and shopping list solution to no avail. ZipList fit our needs perfectly—and all without complicated or costly customizations. What sold me was that my users could have a single place for all their recipes, regardless of where they came from, and just one password to access them. This is something our research showed they wanted.”
