Google Chrome Web Store Shoppers Can Now Taste BBC Good Food

The British Broadcasting Corp. hopes to whet the appetite of browsers in the Google Chrome Web Store with BBC Good Food, a free app that allows users to download more than 160 healthy recipes.

The app can be used online and offline, and users can search for recipes by choosing Today’s Pics or by categories including Breakfast, Starters, Mains, Less than 200 Calories, and Healthy Classics.

BBC Good Food also contains short video lessons, and its recipe lineup contains international fare including The Ultimate Makeover: Moussaka, Sticky Lemon Chicken, Shrimp Curry in a Hurry, Steak & Kidney Pie, and Mexican Chili Burgers, as well as desserts such as Chocolate Muffins and Apple Pie Samosas.

BBC Worldwide director of digital development Simon Hutson said:

The BBC has been tremendously successful on the Web and mobile around its food brand, and we’re really confident that cooks are going to love our latest digital package of recipes. The mouthwatering photography and triple-tested instructions should make the app a go-to destination for new and experienced cooks wanting food inspiration to impress their family and friends, or simply to treat themselves.
