Recipe View is a new Google search feature that allows you to find recipes from across the web. This new search feature allows you to narrow your search results to show only recipes. After searching for a recipe or ingredient on Google, select “Recipes” in the left-hand panel on the search results page. You can filter your results by ingredients, cook time, or calories. Here’s the news from Google:
“Recipe View lets you narrow your search results to show only recipes, and helps you choose the right recipe amongst the search results by showing clearly marked ratings, ingredients and pictures. To get to Recipe View, click on the “Recipes” link in the left-hand panel when searching for a recipe. You can search for specific recipes like [chocolate chip cookies], or more open-ended topics—like [strawberry] to find recipes that feature strawberries, or even a holiday or event, like [cinco de mayo]. In fact, you can try searching for all kinds of things and still find interesting results: a favorite chef like [ina garten], something very specific like [spicy vegetarian curry with coconut and tofu] or even something obscure like [strange salad].”
Definitely a great enhancement (especially taking into account that recipe searches account for some 10 million Google searches every day!) — even if Google isn’t first with this (Bing has had it for some time already).
