# Create & publish recipes
Recipes are intentionally structured very similarly to regular products. This means that the creation and publication requires almost the same steps.
# Create recipe
You can create recipes in the admin under
Catalogues > Recipes by clicking on the button
It is important that you give the recipe a name, of course, because it is a mandatory field. Afterwards you can click on the button
Save to save the recipe.
Now you can write your content for the recipe via the tab
# Publish recipe
Creating a recipe is not enough to display it in the storefront. Apart from the one-time setup the following points must be in place:
- The recipe must be active.
- The recipe must have a main category OR a category.
- The recipe must be associated with a sales channel.
If everything is correct so far, the recipes should appear in the storefront. Have fun writing them!
