Posted on the 28 October 2013 by Naveedkhan

Didn’t you know? Food is the new rock ‘n’ roll. A hearty portion of prime-time television viewing comprises of programmes dedicated to cooking and the App Store certainly isn’t left behind thanks to a bulging selection of foodie apps. Whether you want a choice of new recipes to brighten up your weekly menu or you’re after some culinary tips on how to craft fantastic dishes, you’re sure to find great apps to help in the App Store. Apps such as The Photo Cookbook, Great British Chefs and Gojee all provide an enticing selection of recipes that are healthy and tasty, and there are even apps for you to review food by snapping a picture of your dish, as well as keep track of what’s in your fridge. So whatever your lifestyle or tastes, cooking apps are big business, and you’re sure to find something inspiring.

01 The Photo Cookbook – Quick & Easy

Price: £2.49/$3.99 Developer: ditter. projektagentur GmbH
In terms of cookbooks this is one of the best looking around thanks to the clean and smart images that accompany every stage of every recipe on show. Following the example of Foodspotting in a sense, this app deems photos as the best way forward.

02 Foodspotting

Price: Free Developer: Foodspotting
This is a restaurant and dish recommendation app with a twist, as Foodspotting asks users to follow the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words by sharing images of their dishes instead of text reviews. These are plotted on a map so you can see how delicious the brownies down the street are, as well as the pizza place on the other side of town, all on one screen.

03 Great British Chefs – Recipes

Price: £2.99/$4.99 Developer: Great British Chef
It’s not often you can work on a Michelin star recipe, but with Great British Chefs you can. This app focuses on some of the top chefs working in the UK, and the food they create. Some of their best dishes are fully broken down for you to try if you want to be adventurous in the kitchen. The tile wall of dishes might have you drooling at your iPhone.

04 Expire

Price: Free Developer: Daniel Albert
A really simple way to keep track of everything in your fridge, Expire will notify you when that milk is about to turn, and allow you to set the time you would like to be reminded. This means you’ll get a reminder as you leave work to replace the milk, and the clean, simple interface makes the whole process a very easy one. This is more food management than creation.

05 Gojee – Food & Drinks Recipes

Price: Free Developer: Gojee Sanchez
Gojee has a really clever personalisation feature at its heart that allows users to find dishes and recipes from within the app’s database based on what they’re craving, and ingredients they like and dislike. It means you don’t have to look through copious amounts of dishes you’re not interested in and would never make.
