App Store 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.

• 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.

• 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.

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

Praise for the Joy of Cooking cookbook:

“I’m … a ‘Joy’ fan no matter the edition: Every recipe is written in the book’s unmistakable style, with ingredients and amounts seamlessly integrated into the instructions. For me, this is still the quintessential American cookbook.”

   — Alton Brown

“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
