Following on from Justine's post here, we thought it would be good to start a quick thread where you can post the URLs (with titles/descriptions) of your favourite BBC online recipes to preserve them for the nation and, more importantly, the nation's tummies.

To start you off, here's James Martin's Eton Mess:

Serves four or, if you're in my house, one.

Good plan grin

Antony Worrall Thompson's chocolate chip cookies - still the best recipe for cookies I've ever used, and I've tried quite a few. If you're after the Millie's Cookies texture, this is it.

But isn't the point that the URL won't exist anymore?

lucylove1973 Tue 17-May-16 17:33:24

yeah, but you can print them out

Seeyounearertime Tue 17-May-16 17:43:06

Posting links here won't be them active but you could print the recipe to PDF, save it on a cloud server, share the link to it for everyone.

No the URL will still exist it just won't be searchable/show up in Google results.

BBC Good Food just posted on their instagram that the recipes aren't being cut from online so they'll still be there

Chicken and Leek Pie

Good Food was always safe. It's just not as good!

I make this Christmas Cake every year. It is the best recipe I have found. Luckily I printed it out a few years ago in case of a disaster like this although the printout is missing the final instruction so I have to look it up for the oven temp. Every. Single. Year. (Never learn)

Excellent idea, thanks.
I'll come back with mine.

BBC Press posted on twitter that the BBC Food recipes are being moved from BBC Food to BBC Good Food. It would be best to C&P them into a word document and post them if they aren't on the BBC Good Food site, rather than now. Mumsnet servers have limited storage you know.

Fragrant pilau rice. Gorgeous, easy and foolproof. I've been making it from this recipe (and my own variations on the basic theme) for more than 10 years!

Blatherskite Tue 17-May-16 18:48:38

Went to find my favourite recipe and it's gone already sad

Quietlifenotonyournelly Tue 17-May-16 19:20:08
My favourite pizza dough recipe.

mamamea Tue 17-May-16 19:23:42

The URLs will still exist, and they still will be searchable in Google. They will just have an 'archive content' notice at the top.

Like this:

It doesn't change anything.

Rick stein's beef stroganoff with matchstick potatoes

HoppingForward Tue 17-May-16 20:00:18

chewbecca that recipe has made my mouth water, going to try that this week, thanks flowers

BertieBotts Tue 17-May-16 20:28:59

Asparagus soup with Jersey new potatoes

TheSkiingGardener Tue 17-May-16 20:32:43

Love the idea of this thread. Will go and have a look through my favourites.

Since it is uncompetitive for the BBC to have the recipes available I wonder who will benefit from them being unsearchable?

My favourite simple recipe for a Swiss roll:
