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

What's New in Version 7.0.2
This update fixes a display error on iOS 7.
Good value, especially if you got it free.
Not sure why people are rating this 1 star and slamming the publishers simply because there were fewer recipes than they expected.
You get 60 (15 recipes in 4 categories) in the Quick and Easy section, all beautifully laid out, with very illustrative photography so that you can see the ingredients (and estimate the amounts) at a glance.
You would easily pay the same or more for an e-book. Makes me wonder what people think $3-4 entitles them to; just because it's not a physical object you're buying doesn't mean that time, effort and creativity didn't go into making it.
A free app that could save you $3
The app was free, which is nice, but requires a $2.99 payment to fully unlock three of the four cookbooks that come with the app by default. The good thing is the extra content is $1 cheaper then normal.
If you check the other Photo Cookbook apps from the developer, they are charging $3.99 for individual apps that have the same content found in the Quick and Easy unlockable categories such as Baking and Asian meals.
In the future, I hope they expand on the usefulness of Quick and Easy by making more cookbooks available directly within the app, instead of having to individually purchase their standalone apps which are dedicated to only one food or topic.
Let me jut start off by saying that I, a 13 year old, was able to follow one of the recipes in this app precisely. It really helped me cook a meal for my family, which I've always wanted to do but never knew what to make.
I absolutely adore this app due to the fact that I am a vegetarian and it separates the food types into columns (ie: meats, fish, vegetarian, dessert) and so when I chose a recipe to make, I knew that what I was making was 100% vegetarian. It simply just told me!
Another thing I love about this app is how it shows pictures!! Without them, I probably would have completely messed up the recipe ten times along the way.
GET THIS GREAT APP WHILE IT IS FREE (because to be honest, if I found it at full price, then I most likely wouldn't have purchased it. The only reason I might recommend buying it at full price is because of how wonderfully organized everything is, how delicious the food selections are, and the pictures are just so great!) ❤️
