Shopping list – frequently asked questions


Learn more about the updated BBC Good Food shopping list functionality.

Where’s my shopping list?

We use partners to power our shopping tools on and we have now switched to a new company. With our new partner, Whisk, the shopping list will work in a different way and is not accessible via this link anymore. The new shopping list will give you the option of saving your list for accessing later.


Why haven't my recipes been moved to the new shopping list?

With the previous implementation, we used cookies to remember which recipes were added to the shopping list. The cookies were set on your device and we had no way of identifying those recipes to move across.

How and where do I build a new shopping list?

To start creating your shopping list, you have to use the shopping tools widget present on every recipe. 

The widget looks like this:

Can I save the new shopping list?

Yes, you can save your shopping list by signing in with Whisk, the company that powers our shopping tools. However, you cannot save your shopping list on in this first version of the functionality.
