Some comments about MacGourmet for Mac OS X:

"MacGourmet is my top pick, and it's the program I found myself using on a daily basis. I recommend it for anyone, especially people who want to import recipes from Web sites." -- Andy Affleck of TidBITS

"With so many ways to sort, organize, and search for recipes, MacGourmet Deluxe is invaluable for anyone who loves cooking and collecting recipes." -- MacNN First Look

"It all boils down to this: if you need a database to manage your recipes, there are several available, though none has been more pleasant for me to use than MacGourmet Deluxe." -- Ed Eubanks, Jr. of ATPM

MacGourmet touch uses the MacGourmet Documents folder in iTunes to easily transfer your MacGourmet data to your iPhone/iPod, but you are also able to use your wireless network if desired.
