Aperitif.no is the largest Norwegian information portal presenting a wide variety of food and drinks recipes. It also offers several unique services, related to cooking based on chef’s high competences and skills.
Tasks and objectives
We designed an information portal based on the proprietary Edito CMS platform, which we expanded with the Norwegian language version of the administration panel. The website is fully responsive and displays correctly on any device. Edito CMS platform provides high-performance and flexible solutions. The project included data migration from previous CMS, and optimization of the whole transferred data.
The website presents a wide selection of recipes for dishes, snacks and wines, along with detailed information, comments and ratings.
In the Today’s special bookmark you can find different interesting recipes every day. Users who have their own profile account can use several interesting functions after logging in, e.g.:
- enter products that they have in the fridge so system will find recipes with these particular ingredients
- like a recipe / wine
- “My cookbook” - users add their own recipes, which they save in their profile
- “My wine cellar” - similar to food, they add and save their wines and information about them
- “My Drinks” - Users can save their recipes for unique drinks / cocktails
Products catalog search is based on Elasticsearch engine.
From time to time, the client organizes degustation, for which users can sign up on the website. You could also buy a gift card voucher for an event.
Edito CMS is integrated with SendGrid - the e-mail marketing platform, which automates newsletters sending and gathers statistics. The website is also integrated with Vinmonopolet and payments - Elavon and Nets. They enables importing data (updated on-line) about wines from Vinmonopolet (The Wine Monopoly) and ordering chosen drink.
Our SEO specialists helped us to optimize the website to be even more visible on the Search Engines.
