Recipe Apps for the Curious Foodie



In recent times, people have made the transition from paper cookbooks to recipe apps that run either on smartphones and tablets. You could say that people went with the times, but if you think about how easy it is to find recipes this way, you’ll admit that they’re right. After all, even the most popular chefs in the world decided to switch at least partially from conventional cookbooks to the digital ones, an example being Jamie’s 20 Minute Meals made by Zolmo in cooperation with British chef, restaurateur and media personality Jamie Oliver. Even Gordon Ramsey has his own Ultimate Cookery Course app in Google’s Play Store, in case you prefer his style more.

Obviously, Android is not the only mobile OS for which recipe apps for the curious foodie were created. Many of the most popular recipe apps also have a version for iOS, so you can run them on them iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. For example, BigOven: 250,000+ Recipes, the mobile version of BigOven.com, has versions available for both Android and iOS. The fact that it includes a shopping list is a major plus.

It is not uncommon for well-established recipe websites to develop a mobile app that encompasses all of their recipes in an easy to browse format. This is also the case with AllRecipes.com Dinner Spinner, which is based on a very interesting concept. To find recipes using this app, you have to select the type of dish, the main ingredient and the amount of time needed for cooking it. After making these selections, you have to either press on the Spin Categories button or shake the smartphone.

Recipe Search by allthecooks.com and Epicurious Recipe App by the eponymous award-winning food website are two other apps that you should try.

Needless to say, there are many other international cuisines that have dedicated apps. After installing such an app, you need to make sure you have all the necessary kitchen utensils and ingredients before proceeding with cooking. Once you find an app that satisfies your taste, sharing it with your friends is the second best thing you could do, after serving them food made after one of these recipes.
