THIS week, we feature three good apps to hone your culinary skills and create your own recipes.

As someone who loves everything to do with food, I feel these apps are very useful even if you are a beginner in the kitchen.

SideChef has step-by-step photos, instructions, and voice commands to help you make ta great grilled cheese sandwich.

Cookpad is a cooking community app where people post recipes and pictures. The developer calls it your personal recipe composer.

If you are a fan of Marks & Spencer, you will love their recipe app, which has easy to make, sophisticated meals.


After trying your recipe, other people can post a photo of their own attempt at making the recipe as well.

As some users said, they would love to see a ‘try soon’ option/list, where you can save/add other recipes to this list so you can go back and easily find it when you’re ready to make it.

The recipes are also synchronised to your watch timeline as soon as you open them. Just tap “open on watch” to open at any time.

You can also find recipes for cooking from what you have in the fridge by typing the ingredient.

Cook With M&S


This is a very helpful app, which has a clean, fun interface. More importantly, it is easy to use.

It is also easy to search for particular recipes, for example, if you are making vegetarian dishes.

It does, however, lack a bookmark feature to save your recipes if you are not registered or logged on to the site.

There are more than 1,000 recipes to choose from and the app responds to voice command for hands-free cooking.


Cook With M&S

I find this to be a very classy and slick-looking app. It even adapts the quantity of ingredients to suit how many people you’re feeding. That makes this app stand apart from others.

It has a lot of great recipes to choose from and clear step-by-step cooking instructions as well as in-built timers to help you keep on top of cooking times.
