Let’s start with Epicurious, one of the top food apps out there. The great thing about this appis that they scour all the best cooking magazines on the bookshelves, they cull the best recipes from there, and they put them on their database. You get high-res pictures, of course. That’s a given. But in addition, the app helps you find all the ingredients needed, and it even gives you good idea what those ingredients cost.
This is a really smart feature. This is an app that really understands how people think. It gives you every recipe on earth that you would want, no matter what the cost. But it also helps you keep things within budget. This is exactly what you need to be a practical culinary expert.
So much for expert recipes. How about recipes that regular people make up? For that, you need the app that’s called BigOven – a collection of a quarter million recipes from amateur cooks. Even if a quarter million is a huge number, most people find that they’re attracted to this app for a different reason. They like it for the way it gives them ideas for what to do with their leftovers.
