App of the Week: Bing Food & Drink

The Bing Food & Drink app makes it easy to explore recipes from all around the world, choose from more than 100,000 wines and cocktails, and learn tips from celebrity chefs like Wolfgang Puck and Tom Colicchio to make your next meal a taste-tempting success with family and friends.

The app provides beautiful photos (like those shown here), easy-to-follow instructions and tools such as a shopping list and meal planner to help you prepare your next culinary masterpiece. You can also use the app to enter notes or upload your own favorite recipes, and then share them with a single tap of your finger. The app also has a bevy of articles, slideshows and videos about food and drink.

One of the coolest features of the app is its “Hands Free Mode.” Here’s how it works: Let’s say you’re preparing Swedish meatballs and you’re ready to move on to the next step in the recipe, only your hands are all sticky from handling the ingredients. No worries in THIS kitchen. With the “Hands Free Mode” you can navigate recipes with a simple wave of your hand. No more messy fingers on your device’s glossy, pristine gorilla glass!
