I was in the mood for analyzing, so I did Web scraping (web data extraction) from the website.
Then, to check how useful the data is, I analyzed “What ingredients are often used for egg recipes”.
■About the data I extracted
[From]http://www.opensourcefood.com/recipes/page/1 ~202 all the recipe data (about 3700).
[What]Title, Ingredients, Tags
■What did I extract?
Check the picture below.
“Title” is in the black frame,”Ingredients” are in the red frame, “Tags” are in the blue frame.
I extract all of them.
(Not all the recipes have three of them.)
■Visualize(The connection between egg recipes and ingredients used)
There are 46 egg recipes that can be analyzed.
So, I categorized egg recipe into four, and linked seasonings that are used in the recipe.
From the visualized data below, you can discover facts like this:
(1)Cheeze and Tomato are often used for omlet
(2)Mayonaze and curry, which are not so used for other type of egg recipe, are used for boiled egg.
