Semantic Web for Food

Yummly is an extraordinary web application that inspires to be the next Google for Food. The food search provides options for recipes and faceted searching via dietary, allergy, and taste requirements not to mention options to socially collaborate and organize. Perhaps, the model can be further extended for drinks and health. Maybe, even an option for localized search, social reviews, and e-commerce integration. There is still a lot that can be explored in the area of food via semantic web. However, there is a huge amount of competition out there with several sites already available in area of food. But, it is naturally a contextual model alternative to the current digital trends in music platforms. Semantic Web and Linked Data can truly transform the knowledge web into a global connected space with social interaction graphs and the meaning enrichment in natural language.
