Description

Joy of Cooking, the first cookbook in many kitchens, is now the must-have app for every cook—experts and beginners alike. Containing the entire contents of the latest edition of the bestselling and best-loved, 1,132-page book, the app is a treasury of recipes, reference materials, and special features that make planning and cooking easier than ever.

Here’s some of what you’ll find in the app:

• Universal app supports both iPhone and iPad.

• High resolution graphics and full HD resolution support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

• Thousands of recipes and reference materials cover everything from enchiladas to lemon meringue pie.

• All materials are included in the app. No internet access is required.

• Pre-set digital timers enable you to get each recipe just right.

• Let the app speak each step aloud so you can concentrate on cooking, rather than reading.

• Navigate each recipe with simple voice commands. No need to touch the screen with sticky fingers!

• Thousands of photos and illustrations leave nothing to interpretation.

• Built-in menu-maker allows you to create a menu and use it to navigate among recipes while you cook; you can even print it out or email it to your guests.

• Joy of Cooking classic red bookmarks help you keep track of several recipes at once.

• The Favorites list lets you store recipes that you want to cook again and again.

• Shopping lists can be created easily from one or more recipes.

• The Sleep-Block feature prevents your iPad from sleeping when you just want to cook.

• A switch to enable metric units can adapt recipes to your preference.

• A built-in conversion calculator makes it easy to substitute just about anything. Want to know how many teaspoons are in a half-cup? That answer, and many others, is just a few taps away.

• A smart search page, with easy-to-set filters, gets you results fast.

• One-tap help overlays make the app’s features easy to discover.

• Email or print any recipe for easy reference when you don’t have the app.

• Easily share what you’re cooking via social media so your friends can try to keep up.

• A handy notes page on each recipe lets you file away your own customizations for later reference.

Over the years, you’ve come to expect high-quality cooking advice and recipes from the Joy of Cooking cookbook. Now you can expect the same level of satisfaction from the app.

Praise for the Joy of Cooking app:

“As in the book, the fire hose of information — how to frost a cake, make salt-cured lemons, field-dress a gut-shot animal — is overwhelming, but the digital design makes it easier to navigate through 4,500 recipes and numberless tips.”

   — Julia Moskin, The New York Times

“@TheJoyOfCooking’s new iPad app might be the best thing to happen to home cooking since…the cast iron pan?”

   — Samin Nosrat, Author of SALT, FAT, ACID, HEAT; via Twitter

“One of the things I love about this app is that it helps bring recipes to my attention that I’ve passed over in the print versions.”

   — Marisa McClellan, Food in Jars

“The … narrative of Joy is one of, well, joy. Its recipes will prompt readers to bound into the kitchen; their range and depth is such that there really is something for everyone.”

   — Publisher’s Weekly

“The Swiss Army knife of cookbooks.”

   — The New York Times

Looks awful on iPhone X

I just downloaded this and I’m sure the app is wonderful, but I feel like I am using an iPhone 6 with it. Please update the app so it takes advantage of the iPhone X screen. Also there aren't near enough pictures. I am pretty new at cooking so it would be nice to see with these dishes look like before making them.

Love it, but could love it a lot more...

I've loved and used the book for nearly five decades. I like this app's interface for the most part, but in this day and age, to not include any sort of scaling facility (like tap on the number of servings, change number of servings, and quantities recalculate in the recipe and shopping cart) is both unfathomable and inexcusable. I'll give 5 stars if and when that oversight is corrected.

Easy Peasy

Traveling on the road for the holidays and needed my tried and true JOC recipes. Forgot my cookbook at home...rats. This came thru in a pinch and I will continue to use.

Easy to learn, use and navigate. Well done!
