The Photo Cookbook is like a private cooking course in your own kitchen with an experienced cook who clarifies the preparation. Beautiful photography, elegantly displayed in high resolution on your iPad, illustrates every step.
***As seen on Apple's iPad TV ads!***
Every recipe starts with a photograph of all the ingredients you’ll use in the process. This way and in one glance, you can control if you’ve got all the ingredients you need for preparing the dish.
Each short and straightforward step is clearly explained and easy to understand. Along with the pictures, this assists novice cooks as well as those with more experience in remembering the little touches that can easily be overlooked. Each recipe ends with a photograph of the finished dish, complete with any serving suggestions.
The basic version of the app illustrates 84 recipes, divided into four topics: “Quick & Easy” (60 recipes), “Asian” (5 recipes), “Italian” (15 recipes) and “Baking” (4 recipes). By In-App-Purchase, you can increase your library to 240 total recipes (that’s 60 recipes per chapter).
The item "Baking" is also available with the same content as a separate app: "The Photo Cookbook - Baking".
Each topic is divided into four chapters, within which the recipes are displayed in an overview. Every chapter scrolls vertically, so that you can play with your choices and visually decide which recipe you really want to prepare.
- basic version with 84 recipes and over 700 high-resolution photos
- expandable with In-App-Purchase to 240 recipes and 2,000 photos
- all recipes are easy to prepare
- all recipes displayed in professional step-by-step photographs

The contents of this App can also be found in a book series by Parragon Books.
What's New in Version 7.0.2

Great aid to culinary skills
I've been using this app for quite a while now, in fact it's responsible for the continuing use of my 1st gen ipad which would otherwise lay unused. It's clear and well laid out but it's the lack of complication that wins you over. It also made me realise, what I thought were good family cooks, really don't go into nearly as much detail as these basic recipes and so you quickly become elevated to that of a pretty decent chef (in their eyes). As a male, I did find I used to produce these recipes to the letter, precise amounts and precise timing. I've since learned through this app to cook more on instinct and thus more comfortable generally in the kitchen.
A great app with the features I expect in a strange way!
I've had this app since my iPad 1 days and it hasn't changed much at all. However, I've only just noticed it does have favourites, which are not categorised and accessed through the search feature. It also does shopping lists, via email of all things!
Finally someone has put together an app that kids can use to learn to cook, people with learning or literacy difficulties can use. I only wish it had voice over instructions. The photos are clear and simple, and kept consistent. This app is really for everyone
