Best cooking apps for the iPad

One area where the iPad really shines is the kitchen. You can prop it somewhere relatively out of the way and consult your recipes as you go without having to run back to the computer or flip cookbook pages ... if, of course, you're happy to risk floury finger smears.

One area where the iPad really shines is the kitchen. You can prop it somewhere relatively out of the way and consult your recipes as you go without having to run back to the computer or flip cookbook pages ... if, of course, you're happy to risk floury finger smears.

If the iPad were just a web browser, that would be handy enough for accessing favourite cooking sites, but there are a number of excellent cooking apps available that make the process much smoother for everyone.

Free

The upsized version of the popular iPhone app, Epicurious provides you with access to Epicurious's entire database of recipes, including from Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines searchable by key word, ingredient, what's in season, user rating. If you sign up to a free account, you can also save recipes to a list of your favourites and create a shopping list that you can take with you and check items off as you go. The Epicurious iPad app also offers a kitchen-friendly recipe view so you can use it for cooking with ease. Bear in mind, though: this American-based app only has measurements in imperial.
