Epicurious Recipes App for the iPad

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

You can get a lot of culinary assistance from the Epicurious app for your iPad, which easily lives up to its billing as the “Cook’s Companion.” The Epicurious iPad app is a tasty recipe app that comes courtesy of Condé Nast Digital. If you love to eat, and will take all the help you can get when it comes to preparing a great meal, you should check this app out.

Tap the Control Panel button in the upper-left corner of the screen to get started, and you can find a yummy recipe in no time. Tap Featured inside the Control Panel (if it’s not already highlighted) to find recipes that have been lumped into categories, often timed to the season. Recipe collection categories included Spring Dinner, Mother’s Day, Graduation Party, and Grilling Entrees. Some recipes carry reviews.

If you tap Search inside the Control Panel instead, you can fine-tune your search for a recipe by food or drink, by main ingredient (banana, chicken, pasta), by cuisine type, and by dietary consideration (low-carb, vegan, kosher, and so on), among other parameters.

When you discover a recipe you like, you can add it to a collection of Favorites, e-mail it to a friend, pass along the ingredients to your shopping list, summon nutritional information, or share it on Facebook or Twitter.

Bon appétit.
