"I’m loving Meez!. It's been instrumental in developing our new spring menu items and rolling out new marinades to the teams. The ability to push certain recipes to specific stores when we’re piloting recipes is awesome. And the 'Docs' feature is Huge! Previously our SOPs were buried on dropbox, having them easily accessible in the kitchen is a game changer! Managers can easily pull up our processes and refer to them with team members anytime there’s a question as to the proper way to cook chicken (which comes up often…)”

How long does onboarding take?

Most of the time, you'll be setup in under a day. If you are a very large business with a thousand plus recipes, it could take a few days to a week. The next step is getting your team involved and we recommend tablets or phones for day to day use in the kitchen (though printing works great too).

Quickly and easily. Oh, you mean like how... A few ways:
1. Upload from most file types right into meez, your recipes auto-format upon upload
2. Type them in using the meez predictive text technology.
3. Just send them our way, our team can upload recipes for you. Learn more about recipe upload services here.

Are the built in yields and conversions customizable?

Absolutely! Though our team has tested every item for accuracy, we understand that your cup of diced onions may weigh more/less than the average weight we determined. You can update any ingredient or prep action from the ingredient's detail page.

Is there a mobile app?

Currently meez is accessible and optimized for use on any computer, tablet, or mobile device.  There is not an iOS or android app yet.

Can I still print recipes?

The meez story

meez is inspired by the same principles applied to great cooking– an uncompromising attention to detail and a constant drive to evolve and improve.

What the team has built is the culmination of so many lessons learned from stages of my own personal experience as a chef and entrepreneur, so we thought it best to present the story of meez as a timeline.

Our hope is that meez will become the home for all of your recipes, menus, and ideas for as long as you continue to cook. And the meez team will continually strive to build new and innovative ways for you to experience and share your content.

Josh Sharkey
Founder of meez

1999-2000: The First Notebooks

I began cooking in restaurants around age 16, and in 1999, I started culinary school and cooking full-time.

I was learning so much, and I began writing down everything in a little spiral notebook: all of my ideas, what I was learning, and what I was eating and tasting. One little spiral notebook turned into 2, then 5, and soon, more than I could count.

Unfortunately for me, between my terrible handwriting and the fading paper, my early notebooks are pretty much illegible now…

2001-2008: A cook's life

I learned an unbelievable amount working in the kitchens of chef Gray Kunz, Floyd Cardoz, David Bouley and Rick Moonen.

In 2003, while working for Chef Floyd by night, I also spent my mornings working for free rinsing pig intestines in a Salumeria, so I could learn how to make charcuterie.Every meticulous detail of the process—time, temperature, humidity, proper tying and hanging, good bacteria, fat content, etc–all ended up in the notebook I was using at the time.

Then one day, while trailing at another restaurant, I lost that notebook! I was devastated and vowed to never lose a notebook or a recipe again.

And thus, the idea that would grow to become Meez, was born.

2009-2016: Running a business

In 2009 I opened a fast-casual concept called Bark Hot Dogs with a business partner. Our mission: taking the same commitment to technique we apply in fine dining to execute classic American fast food.

We quickly realized that translating technical cooking skills to a team of cooks that had never worked in a kitchen before required a methodical approach to documenting and training.

In just a single recipe like Baked Beans, a cook needed to learn to sweat an onion, cook bacon lardon, soak dried beans, clean & smoke trotters, braise, tie a proper sachet, and more–a heck of a lot, especially for someone who's never picked up a knife before.

Through this experience, the vision for meez began to expand far beyond simply capturing recipes and ideas. And thus began a new journey: aligning a love of cooking with a newfound obsession–leveraging technology to promote better cooking and have an everlasting impact on our industry.

2016-2019: Development begins

I spent the next few years researching and soliciting friends and colleagues for input on what I was building.

And with the help of a small team, I began analyzing thousands of ingredients that would eventually become the Meez ingredient database.

After sharing the vision for meez with the founders of Aurify brands, an NYC based hospitality incubator, they believed in the product enough to help fund the project.

With a long road ahead developing Meez, I also began developing menus and creating an R&D process for Aurify, eventually also becoming the COO of Aurify.

The Meez team began full-time development of the tool in 2018. Aurify to date has been instrumental in allowing Meez to incubate within a hospitality company, allowing for constant feedback and iteration.

2020: Now we're cooking

After 2 years of development, Meez is ready to be shared with the world. We're giving a number of hand-picked chefs, mixologists, and teams early access to Meez.
