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. • Joy of Cooking classic red bookmarks help you keep track of several recipes at once. • 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. • The Sleep-Block feature prevents your iPad from sleeping when you just want to cook. • A switch to enable metric units can adapt recipes to your preference. • A built-in conversion calculator makes it easy to substitute just about anything. Want to know how many teaspoons are in a half-cup? That answer, and many others, is just a few taps away. • 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. • A handy notes page on each recipe lets you file away your own customizations for later reference. Over the years, you’ve come to expect high-quality cooking advice and recipes from the Joy of Cooking cookbook. Now you can expect the same level of satisfaction from the app. • • • 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
