Thick cookbooks as well as the tradition of writing down interesting recipes in a special notebook or notebook, are gradually becoming a thing of the past - their place is being taken by applications for smartphones. Here are eleven cooking apps that will teach you how to understand food and make the cooking process easier and more fun.

Sorted food

iOS: is free

We have already talked about the YouTube channel SORTED Food, created by four British people, and now we advise you to pay attention to the app of the same name. The program contains over 700 step-by-step recipes, many of which are also filmed. Users can upload recipes to the app themselves, see what others have downloaded, and subscribe to their favorite recipe authors (in order to better understand who to target, in the profiles of each of them you can see what foods and dishes they like and what they don't) - the result is an impressive library of dishes for a wide variety of occasions. The SORTED authors themselves have nearly a thousand recipes, including the perfect cheeseburger, lobster rolls, potato waffles, coconut shrimp, stuffed onions and a cake shaped like the Superman logo. You can save the recipes you like.

food and feed

iOS: is free, Android: is free

Everyone seems to know about Afisha-Eda, but this is not the only good Russian-language culinary app. Food and Feed is a new version of Bon App's culinary app. The authors consider inspiration to be the main thing in the preparation of any dish, and the application itself is called "a glossy magazine in the world of ascetic culinary dictionaries" - so much attention is paid to beautiful pictures of food. Food and Feed has a user-friendly and eye-catching interface and, according to the creators, more than 10 thousand step-by-step recipes. You can just scroll through the application, choosing a recipe by the picture, or you can search for a specific dish by name or ingredients. If you type the name of an ingredient into the search bar, the app offers you to view recipes that match your query in different categories. They are quite standard - there are, for example, salads, soups, mains and snacks. You can like the recipes you like, you can add them to your favorites, or you can mark them as cooked so as not to forget. Links to recipes can be sent to friends on social networks or via instant messengers.

Patee

iOS: is free, Android: is free

Most of all, the design of this application resembles Instagram: recipes are issued in the form of a feed, you can like and leave comments. By clicking on an ingredient in one of the recipes, you can learn more about it - including its nutritional value, types and uses in cooking. You can subscribe to the accounts of the authors of the recipes you like, and add interesting dishes to your recipe book. Also at Patee. there is a section with recommendations: here you can find thematic selections ("Children's birthday", "Lenten recipes") and dishes categorized. Some recipes have video tutorials.

Let's make a reservation right away that most of the recipes are available only to users with a premium subscription: 12 months of full access to all recipes will cost 459 rubles, and an unlimited subscription - 699 rubles. You can subscribe for shorter periods of time - for a day (15 rubles), a month (149 rubles) and six months (299 rubles).

Jamie Oilver's Recipes

iOS: is free

This list would be incomplete without Jamie Oliver's Culinary App. The chef and TV host have several apps of their own, the most popular being Jamie Oliver’s Recipes. Every week you get access to 15 new recipes for free; in addition, in the application, you can add the required products to the shopping list. In order to get access to all Oliver's recipes, you have to pay extra: Jamie Oliver’s Ultimate Recipes will cost 529 rubles in the Russian App Store.

Other famous chefs, for example, Nigela Lawson, Gordon Ramsay, and Yulia Vysotskaya, can also find interesting (though most often not free) culinary apps.

Kitchen stories

iOS: is free, Android: is free

Another nice and handy library of recipes, some of which are loaded by editors, and some by users. The application is Russified, but not fully translated into Russian: the recipes themselves, for example, in most cases are published in English, so you cannot do without knowledge of the language. Otherwise, it is very convenient: the recipes are divided into categories (for example, "Dishes in 20 minutes", "Comfort food", "Dinner in the middle of the week"), instructions are given step by step, supplemented with photographs and sometimes video; the approximate cooking time is also indicated. In addition, there is a section with video instructions: here you can find both simple tips for novice chefs (how to boil an egg, how to sculpt cutlets, how to blanch), and video recipes (how to cook the perfect steak, make homemade mayonnaise, etc.). The recipes you like can be saved to the cookbook, and the missing ingredients can be added to the shopping list.

NYT Cooking

iOS: is free

The New York Times app with over 17,000 recipes. You can search for dishes by keywords and tags (there are many tags in the search that help you find what you like, including the type of cuisine, type of dish and the author of the recipe), or you can use editorial selections. In the latter, there are recipes by regular culinary authors of the New York Times, for example, Melissa Clarke and the same Nigela Lawson, classic recipes by Julia Child, dishes that are easy to cook with children, unusual sandwiches and much more. The app also includes a selection of basic (and not so) text-based cooking guides prepared by the authors of the publication: for example, how to properly handle a knife, how to glaze a cake, and how to make pizza, burgers and pancakes.

Dishes that you have prepared yourself can be ticked off with the “Cooked” checkbox so as not to lose them, and the recipes you like can be saved to a cookbook or added to your own selections - very convenient if, for example, you are planning a holiday dinner.

Green kitchen

iOS: 229 r

A non-free, but useful application with vegetarian recipes, which is also useful for those who eat meat and just want to diversify their diet. The recipes, unfortunately, are not given step-by-step photos - but it is possible to mark each cooking step as it is completed. In addition, the authors provide helpful tips at the end of the recipes. The application is available in several languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Italian (Russian, however, no). Plus, you can customize the filter and keep only vegan-friendly or gluten-free foods. Unfortunately, the app does not have an Android version - but you can always read the culinary blog of its creators and authors, or find an analogue on Google Play.

Perfect produce

iOS: is free, Android: is free

This app will teach you how to choose the best fruits and vegetables. Perfect Produce has a long list of products with recommendations on what to look for when choosing them. For example, the authors of the application advise choosing hard avocados, which, nevertheless, lend themselves to light pressure (although you should not squeeze the avocado too much, so as not to damage it). In addition, here you can find information about the nutrients found in fruits and vegetables, and many recipes where they act as the main ingredient.

The application is useful for those who carefully monitor their diet: in it you can search for a suitable ingredient for a dish based on the nutrients it contains. Perfect Produce also helps you calculate how many vegetables and fruits you need to eat in order to meet the daily intake of a particular substance: each product is marked with the RDA - recommended dietary allowance, that is, the recommended intake.

Kitchen Calculator PRO

IOS: 229 r

An indispensable application for those who cook according to foreign recipes and do not understand how, for example, to translate American "cups" into grams. Kitchen Calculator PRO converts one unit of measure into another - and you can select both tablespoons and teaspoons as a unit of measure. In this case, the calculator takes into account all the nuances (for example, that a cup of sugar and a cup of rice have different weights): when converting, you need to indicate the ingredient itself. If you are missing the ingredients that are already marked in the application, you can add your own. The app also helps you calculate the ingredients for the right amount of servings.

Substitutions

iOS: 229 r

In the Substitutions app, as you might guess from the name, you can find a long list of ingredients and what can be substituted for without compromising the dish. It will be useful, for example, for those who, already in the cooking process, understand that there is no necessary product at home or, for example, want to know how to replace an ingredient to which they are allergic. Foods can be viewed by list or by category (Baking & Cooking, Seafood & Meat, and others) - a list of substitutions for allergy sufferers and a list that adapts dishes for vegans are especially helpful. True, you need to approach the advice of Substitutions consciously: there are no completely interchangeable products, so you have to figure out for yourself how the replacement will affect the taste of the dish.

Baristame

Android: is free

The Baristame - Coffee Guide app teaches you how to understand coffee: here you can find information about different espresso-based coffee drinks, tips on how to brew the drink in different ways, as well as basic information about coffee in general - countries where the beans are grown, how to roast and grinding and more. In addition, the application has step-by-step instructions for each method of making coffee, a calculator that calculates how many coffee beans and how much water you need to make a drink, and a timer. The PRO version of the application without ads will cost 30 rubles.
