Google whips up new search filter for recipes

By on February 24, 2011, 8:11 PM
Google has added a new service to its search engine that can be used to quickly find recipes online. The site's Recipe View allows you to enter queries and refine the search based on parameters such as ingredients, how long the meal takes to prepare and the amount of calories it contains. "With just a few clicks, you can customize and filter search results to show recipes with your ideal ingredients, cook time and calorie count," explains Google.

To try the service, enter a keyword in the Recipes section including specific recipe names, ingredients or even holiday and events for themed meals. For example, if you enter "chicken pasta," Google presents you with 1,070,000 results with filters for ingredients like lemon, cook times ranging from 15 to 60 minutes and various calorie counts. Recipes are also accompanied by pictures and user ratings so you know what you're getting yourself into.
