How to Cook Everything

How to Cook Everything iPad App

This one from Mark Bittman is an app based on the best-seller, How to Cook Everything from the famed NYT columnist. The app is one of the heftiest, costliest apps you’ll find on the App Store but it’s one heck of a completely-illustrated, detailed recipe app which helps you cook amazing recipes. Naturally, it’s more of a personal assistant with its exquisitely detailed tutorials and information.

My Recipe Book

MyRecipeBook iPad App

My Recipe Book is more of a recipe organizer than a recipe discovery app but it’s one of the best “cooking” apps for the iPad. You can store all the recipes you find on bookmarked websites, on paper/magazines, etc. The app lets you import recipes directly from certain compatible websites. You can tag your recipes and that comes in handy when you sort them. There are also features like Servings Adjuster and iCloud sync (along with offline access).

Epicurious Recipes

Epicurious iPad App

You’ll find an enormous list of recipes that you can tap into. Epicurious also lets you save recipes from certain websites, and you can also create your shopping list for a recipe.

The Photo Cookbook

PhotoCookbook iPad App

The basic version comes with just 84 recipes (across five categories) but it’s one of the finest, fully illustrated cookbooks ever. The app is more like a (cook) book with detailed overview of the recipes, the cooking process. Although the number of recipes is paltry (240 after you purchase all in-app features), it’s the detailing that matters in this app.
