Git for delicious cookies.

I work for a business that uses recipes for baked goods. We are having a problem managing recipes. We need a system to control who has access to recipes, tracks and logs changes and archives recipes which have been superseded.

Can anyone suggest a system (software and/or best practices) which will help me get a handle on all these recipes?

A wiki perhaps?

Are you familiar with version control systems? You could set up a simple Subversion system (even on Windows) and make a simple document management system out of that. You can control access and track revisions (and who made them).

Sorry, you'll also need this doc to set up the server.

You could look at flashbake, version-control for writers using git

Since you're clearly aware that version control systems like git exist, it would be helpful to hear first why git isn't the right solution for your situation. Otherwise we're just going down a rabbit hole of naming ever random version management product we can think of.
