Food is one of human beings’ favorite obsessions. Most people spend a great deal of time physically and mentally preoccupied with food: we organize and prepare meals, we daydream about what’s for lunch or dinner; we eat.

"We are What We Eat"

As food is a major part of every one’s life so cooking channels are getting so much popularity nowadays. Cooking Channels are television specialty channels that only on air programs about food and cooking.

A number of cooking shows have run for many seasons on channels. Many of the more popular cooking shows have had flamboyant hosts whose unique personalities have made them into celebrities. From recent past, famous chefs are hosting the shows. The organization keeps the records of these shows, name, producer, timing etc along with the detailed information about the hosts. Administrator has full rights on this data as he/she is responsible for maintaining the system.

The channels also store the cooking recipes categories wise. There are categories like Breakfast, Salad Entrees, Soups, Fish, Chicken, Meat, Vegetarian Entrees, Side Salad/Dressings, Side Vegetables, and Desserts. Chefs can enter/edit/delete the recipes. Viewers can view these recipes any time through website. Viewers can also enter their own recipes along with their own record. They can also comment on the recipes of chefs and other people and on shows of the channel. All the users have to register themselves to access the system.

Mr. X wants to open a new cooking channel and has approached you to create a system to store the whole data related to cooking shows and recipes.
