How to Cook Everything App Description

This first-of-its-kind app of the bestselling cookbook—How to Cook Everything® from New York Times columnist Mark Bittman—has 2,000 recipes, 400 how-to illustrations, and a host of features that appeal to cooks on the go. This app is optimized uniquely for both the iPad and the iPhone, making the most of the size, shape, and capabilities of each. (Some features are specific to the iPad only.) In the app you’ll find: • The full content of the multiple-award-winning How to Cook Everything®: all 2,000 recipes and variations. • Bittman’s no-nonsense cooking guidance: how-to illustrations; equipment, technique, and ingredient information; and meal-planning ideas. • Easy-to-use and flexible search capabilities, including enhanced filters and the ability to browse recipes and reference information. • Dedicated layouts for portrait and horizontal views, so the information and recipes are easy to follow—from any angle. • Inspiring photos of weekly featured recipes (iPad only). • Well-organized and email-friendly shopping lists that make it easy to buy ingredients—and whatever other groceries you need at home. • The ability to bookmark particular recipe steps and jump with ease among recipes (iPad only). • The ability to convert temperatures and quantities to metric. • Handy built-in timers, placed throughout the recipe steps. • A How-To section that provides convenient access to hundreds of illustrated tutorials on a broad range of topics (iPad only). • A notes tab on each recipe that makes it easy to add your own recipe notes (iPad only). • Select quotes from the book with voice-overs by Mark Bittman (iPad only). • A constant-on button to prevent the screen from dimming while you cook (iPad only). • The ability to print recipes and shopping lists and to add recipes to calendars. • The ability to email up to 10 recipes a month to yourself or to friends. • Cooking inspiration: Bittman’s Picks, Featured Recipes, Menues, and Favorites, which provide quick access to selected recipes. • Feed your friends: Integration with Facebook and Twitter allows you to share what you’re cooking with your social network! • Owners of the new iPad: this one's for you. We've updated the app to include a full set of retina display graphics and images to take full advantage of your high-resolution screen. All recipe and reference content is embedded in this app, which means that you can use it even if you don’t have a network connection. The How to Cook Everything app is the perfect complement to the book, an invaluable resource and guide. • • • "The bells-and-whistles of this app are what make it a must-buy, from grocery lists you can email to how-to illustrations. Bittman also makes it nearly impossible to mess up a dish—each recipe step has a built in timer so there’s less chance you’ll forget how long your osso bucco has been cooking."    — Bon Appetit • • • Love this app?

App Reviews

  • The gold standard for iPad cookbooks

    By snapper-Z
    I’ve been using this app regularly since Mr. Bittman released it years ago. It’s never steered me wrong. It’s regularly updated and maintained (unlike apps offered years ago by cash-in celebrities like Batali). It’s vast in coverage. Some of the best money I ever spent on the App Store. Thank you, Mark!
  • Nice content

    By jam9999
    Great content and easy to use. Please update the app for the latest version of iOS and newer screen sizes.
  • Clear and easy to use

    By DonnaJ11
    This is an excellent, clear and easy to use app. I have basic, not very fancy cooking skills and this app really helps me along.
  • Not a bad little app

    By Silknred
    I used a few of the recipes and they’ve turned out great. Also great to use just for reference. Good “how to” explanations and I like that they include variations.
  • Missing App- How to Cook Everything- The Basics

    By guy brooklyn
    What happened to the third App in this series? It was a nice addition, not cheap, and should be updated to work on the latest operating system. FYI, all developers are in the same boat, your customers should not need to beg. Developer, please respond.
  • Good app

    By chroko29
    Needs to be updated for iPhone X and up but other than that it’s great.
  • Had to purchase twice

    By Eating On Two Wheels
    Love having recipes available when traveling or shopping, but after my phone updated, I had to pay for these all over again. *angry face*
  • Money-grubbing creators.

    By Rstrdews
    It’s unfortunate that i can’t leave a review for the vegetarian app, which I bought and paid for several years ago. Apparently the creators decided to eliminate that version and make everyone repurchase the app for more money. Since I’ve also purchased the book, paying for the app once was enough for me. I’ll make do with other apps. Think twice before paying money for something they may decide is obsolete.
  • Had to re-purchase

    By Ajetreo
    I used this for years until the app stopped being compatible with iOS updates. Finally had to re-purchase it. It’s an excellent app, but I’m displeased at having to pay for it again to access it.
  • Abandonware!

    By tabaks
    Now, we're ready for more updates, after three years of ignoring your customers! To developer: And no, fixing the shell while providing no new content isn't "update". It's "squeeze more money out without giving anything in return". Also, your response is facetious, unless you've somehow squeezed in all of the recipes of the world.
