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."

Customer Reviews

Great app lots of recipes and techniques

Recipes have links to special techniques, great for making certain you remember the technique correctly or learning a new technique.

This app is now part of a bundle. But the complete the bundle for the two apps in the bundle is the same as the bundle price. Making the complete the bundle option more expensive then just buying the other app.

If you don't own either of the apps in the bundle and think you want both then buy the bundle and save half price off the second app. If you already own one of the two apps the complete the bundle price will cost you an extra half the price. Caveat emptor.

Excellent tool and teaching app

Every time I use this app I learn something. My cooking responsibilities have increased in the last few years and I find this app powerful and extremely useful. There are embedded links within recipes for everything from basic cutting and measuring techniques to step timers.
I agree with another reviewer that it would be a real feature upgrade if the Boolean logic for ingredient searches included a "NOT" option to eliminate allergens, wheat, etc when planning meals for guests or visitors.
Nonetheless, this program is worth every cent. I use it frequently and it has never failed to deliver.

I just read a bad review

...and had to write a review in response. This reviewer said he was disappointed by the lack of variations in the recipes...after saying they "knew their way around a kitchen!!!" Fact is, if you know your way around food ingredients, ALL recipes are infinitely variable! Plenty of reviews here testify to how much any cook can learn from this app. The breadth and the depth of kitchen knowledge presented here is unmatched, Bittman is a wonderful companion to have in your kitchen. If you don't see variation here, you lack kitchen confidence, something you only gain by doing!
