If you are a foodie looking for recipes and peers who can share in your joy of cooking, then Douguo, an online cookbook app helping users share good food and stories, might just be the service for you.

Douguo secured US$25 million of Series C funding led by Hillhouse Capital at a valuation of US$300 million at the end of last year. The previous rounds were funded by GGV Capital and Shanda Capital.

As a recipe sharing platform, Douguo structuralizes the data contributed by users, allowing them to look up, bookmark or share recipes with friends. It offers recipe recommendations of almost every dimension you can imagine, whether by ingredient, cuisine, cooking device, group of people, or health function. When it’s time to start cooking, users can switch to a “step-by-step” mode to see each step clearly as they progress.
