This is brilliant. Cooklang, a language for personal cooking recipe management.

Here’s how the Cooklang ecosystem makes that happen:
  • All recipes are human-readable text files.
  • Everything is a file. No databases. And you have complete control over your information.
  • All the tools are simple, focused, and efficient; the UNIX way.

I wonder if it would be possible to have parts of that functionality within a markdown-it plugin? It could be used also for other things, like technical descriptions with part reference lists.
