Not only does it pull basic recipe links and descriptions from all those third-party sites, but it grabs the full ingredient lists, pictures, user ratings, and preparation/serving instructions, then categorizes them for search refining. So if you’re looking for a Vietnamese dish to whip up tonight, but you don’t want anything deep-fried, and you’d like the main ingredient to be chicken, Food.com can help you get there.
It’s hard to believe it took so long for someone to offer a recipe search with this kind of breadth and functionality. The service is still in beta, so you’ll need to sign up and log in to use it. From a first look, though, it’s definitely worth it.
