BBC Good Food - Recipes, tools & cooking tips

By BBC Worldwide

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The BBC Good Food – Recipes, tips and cooking tools app is free to download, but, charges for additional curated cookbooks. We offer 20 free recipes, 50 glossary items, cooking tips and a multiple timer tool for free in the app.

If you have lost access to your paid cookbooks you will be able to re-download to your iPhone or iPad without paying again - please refer to the instructions in the app within menu>settings>manage in app purchases. If you own both an iPad and an iPhone you will be able to download your purchased cookbooks on both devices without paying twice. Please ensure you are logged in with the same Apple ID on both devices and follow the instructions at the bottom of this description.

However, if you downloaded cookbooks for free during our promotional offer, you will not be able to redownload across devices or on to a new device. This is something we are aiming to make possible in a future release.

Whether you’re looking for weekday inspiration, trying to cook the perfect steak or attempting your own homemade ice cream, get cooking with the new BBC Good Food - Recipes, tips and cooking tools app. This app lets you buy and store all the existing BBC Good Food cookbook apps, and organise your favourite recipes and shopping lists in one place.

The app is free to download, and comes with 20 of our favourite recipes, like, Beef & beer pie, Summer vegetable curry and Chocolate & raspberry pots. It also includes tools like our simple-to-use roast timer, handy weight converters, and a basic glossary of ingredients and techniques, to get you started.

All recipes and tools found in the app are available offline.

Each recipe includes nutritional information on kcals, protein, carbs, fat, saturated fat, fibre, sugar and salt per serving.

And you can set your app to display recipes in metric or imperial measurements, according to your preference.

Customer Reviews

Better functionality on the website

The recipes are as always lovely. What is annoying is that the app crashes a lot and that you still can't use it in the same way you do the website.

On the website you can click a button to add ingredients to your shopping account with tescos or ocado, but the app (which as a paid for subscription should be better than the website) you can't do that.

Little fixes would make a big difference.

Love their recipes but space for improvement

I had the app previously on my previous phone.
Yes you have to buy extra recipes if you are happy with it. But they are definitely worth the money.

Now the downside:
My problem is the payment I made does not transfer on my new mobile phone. So if I want to access to the same recipes I have to buy them again.

Recipes are really good, well balanced for a healthy lifestyle but it needs to fix this transfer problem.

Also despite the recipes being really good. It would be nice to see some updates on the app. I had the app in 3 different mobile and through the year it does not look like any update has been made despite the amazing amount of contents they have on their website.


You have to purchase the recipes when they are available online? Also, after I purchased the one pot recipes the accompanying recipes eg beer and stout stew has creamy parsnip
mash it says the for the recipe see below but it isn't there so you have to look it up on the web! Expensive, not that user friendly and not intuitive (keeps logging you out and taking you back into the homepage)
