Google Recipes: kinda cool

Feb 24 2011 Published by under information retrieval

Recipes really lend themselves to a fielded search and a faceted presentation, but most sites don't do it too well. I love Cooks Illustrated, but their search has been quite awful. Epicurious is much better, but with all that great structured data, you would think they could rock it.

Google has come out with a recipe search that takes advantage of the markup some sites have added. You can narrow by prep time, calories and often ingredients.

I'll have to try it some more with some real searches. Seems pretty cool so far. No need to memorize any pages, you can just do a normal google search and then limit to recipes afterward.
