The Photo Cookbook

The Photo Cookbook is like a private cooking course in your own kitchen with an experienced cook, who clarifies the preparation. Beautiful photography illustrates every step.
Every recipe starts with a photograph of all the ingredients. This is more than just a pretty picture or – even less helpful – a montage that is not to scale, so that a chili appears to be the same size as a whole fish. Instead, it serves as a handy way of checking that you have everything ready before you start cooking.
Each short and straightforward step is clearly explained without any jargon or difficult technical terms. What you see in the photograph is what you should expect to see in front of you. Not only is this reassuring for the novice cook, those with more experience will find it a helpful reminder of the little touches that can easily be overlooked. Each recipe ends with a lovely photograph of the finished dish, complete with any serving suggestions.
The app includes 240 recipes, divided into four topics: “Quick & Easy”, “Italian”, “Asian” and “Baking” (60 recipes each).
- 240 recipes in four topics
- over 2,000 high-resolution photographs
- all recipes are easy to prepare
- all recipes displayed in professional step-by-step photographs
- search function for ingredients and recipes
- ingredient lists can be emailed
- ingredients provided with consumer information (retrieved with a click on the relevant ingredient)
The contents of this app can also be found in a book series by Parragon Books.

Great for those who love to explore new recipes!
I am always looking for new recipes to try and this cookbook is perfect! The recipes are a step above the normal betty crocker recipes. Also, the photos are superb and look stunning. It breaks down the recipe into great steps and gives you information about the ingredientes when you click on them in the ingredient list photo. The program opens fast and looks great. It is so worth the $16.
Disapointed cook book
I was disappointed in this Apps i was hoping to add my own recipe with my photos that would help new cooks like me remember the easy steps.
Need update for Yosemite
Seems to have a compatibility issue with OSX Yosemite. I’m running OSX 10.10.1 and after launching the app, the columns of dish images are all black and only the scroll bars are visible. However clicking in the area does bring me to the receipts, so I think it’s just the problem with rendering those images?
