Once you open Food Network In the Kitchen, you’re bombarded with a food photo segment that gets you salivating.  The images are enough to make you keen on utilizing the app and fulfilling the night’s culinary masterpiece, whether it’s Italian, Mexican, Asian or (God forbid) healthy.

The home screen features top chefs like Bobby Flay, Alton Brown, Anne Burrell and Giada De Laurentiis. Say you choose Tyler Florence of the show Tyler's Ultimate. Next, you’re forwarded to a page that offers all of the chef’s signature recipes—from smothered pork chops to French onion soup (drool). You can sort the recipes based on Recent, Popular, Editor Picks and All. Each recipe has a one to five star rating (most boast at least four stars) and range from easy to intermediate to difficult levels.

Besides offering thousands of recipes, Food Network In the Kitchen makes the next step in your culinary adventure easier. The Shopping List tab on the bottom lets you add items as you go, making your grocery store trip less of a drag and more of a mission. The Quick List tab lets you bookmark and quickly compare recipes, weighing pros and cons, and the Recipe Box allows you to store your favorites all in one place (if you sign up for a Food Network account). Lastly, the More tab provides you with a couple of essential cooking tools—a timer and a unit converter.

New recipes are added each month and users can search by chef or ingredient to fit their tastes.

There are a couple of features that the Food Network In the Kitchen iPad version has that the iPhone app doesn’t: An interactive meal planner that lets you name and organize a menu for special occasions and how-to videos that provide helpful tips and tricks on everything from baking to knife skills. We hope to see fun tools like these incorporated into the iPhone app soon, but until then, we’ll be getting our cook on.
