• Epicurious: If you go online and you're a cook, you're probably quite familiar with Epicurious. This free app lets you search for 30,000+ food and drink recipes or browse categories by skill level and theme, and then save or share them and create shopping lists. Recipe we made at the event: Maple Glazed Wild Salmon
• Allrecipes: This is another online standard, and the free app lets you browse 40,000+ recipes, search by nutrition or ingredients, save and share recipes, and create shopping lists. On the Windows phone you can pin your favorite recipes to the start screen, and they become live tiles featuring a photo of the dish and the ingredients.
• Betty Crocker: As much as I love the vintage Betty Crocker cookbook, I must admit I never thought of turning to Betty Crocker for modern-day recipes on my phone. However, the fantastic asparagus dish we cooked at the event was based on a recipe in the free app, so I'll be giving it a closer look. Like the other recipe apps, you can search and save recipe and create shopping lists.
• Cocktail Flow: This $2.99 app features cocktail recipes and great photos. One of the best features is the ability to identify cocktails that can be made from the ingredients you already have in your home cabinet.
• Vino Match Mobile Sommelier: This $2.99 app may be used to learn more about food and wine pairing, to shop for wine pairings at grocery stores, to help with pairings at restaurants, and to record your tasting pictures and notes.
• Foodspotting: The free Foodspotting app isn't specifically focused on home cooking, but we often find inspiration from restaurant dishes, so it can be a fun way to find and share photos.
