Generally speaking, a recipe is set of instructions for preparing a particular dish, including a list of the ingredients required.

In Harmony Platform, we use the same general idea - a recipe is collection of add-ons (extensions, packages and/or themes) used to build a specific functionality. By example, we create a recipe named Blog which contains everything needed to build a simple blogging website.

Recipes are only available in the extension section of the Harmony Marketplace. Recipes are created by the administrators of Harmony Platform.

Be careful, do not confuse Harmony Recipes and Symfony Flex recipes.
