Epicurious is an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch app from the famous online recipe and cooking community, Epicurious.
With more than 28,000 recipe entries, Epicurious has quite an extensive inventory of instructions on how to cook a variety of foods. It even has an international inventory of recipes. If you want to give that dish from your favorite Indian restaurant a try, for example, Epicurious might just have it on file.
In addition to having an extensive selection, Epicurious categorizes its recipes to make dishes easy to search. During the holidays, there are even appropriately specific categories like holiday sides and Christmas cocktails. If you find a recipe you love or simply want to try, you can place it into a favorites folder for easy access as well. There's also a regular search screen to type in your query if you can't find what you want via Epicurious's pre-made categories.
Epicurious is truly a useful resource for a cook or those who aspire to be one. The only frustrating feature becomes clear after you use the app for a while. On occasion, notifications pop up, inviting you to sync your favorites so you can share them between devices. This is great if it's something you want to do. If not, there's no way to stop the notifications from appearing from time to time, which can get annoying.
Overall, Epicurious is a fantastic recipe app for food lovers of all types of cuisine.
