Allrecipes.com’s Community feature connects Home Cooks

Allrecipes.com, the world’s largest social networking site for food enthusiasts, has unveiled an innovative new Community feature that allows users to easily explore member profiles, find home-town recipes and read the latest reviews from more than 2 million home cooks behind the site’s long-trusted user generated content. This new feature brings the world of food enthusiasts closer together to share their passion for cooking, whether across the globe or right in their own backyard.

Allrecipes.com's Community feature connects Home Cooks“Allrecipes.com is very much a social networking medium for members to share a glimpse into their own kitchens and we’re excited to provide them with more options to showcase their passion for creating and sharing great food,” said Lisa Sharples, president of Allrecipes.com. “We were proud to be the first to introduce the idea of community to the online food space and are thrilled that after 10 years we’re still driving the industry ahead with tools and functionality that are unique to our community.”

Allrecipes.com’s new Community feature makes it easy for people to share the authentic dishes of their region, their family’s generation-tested recipes and personal kitchen secrets with home cooks the world over. Users can search the latest reviews, user-generated photos, recipes, menu ideas and more by geography or by member profile. A geographical search can be done by selecting regions on an interactive map or by typing in a city or town name. Users can then browse member profiles unique to that area to find recipes and meal ideas that define the tastes and traditions of the region, be it all-American comfort food or foreign-inspired traditional fare. Truly a global community of home cooks, Allrecipes.com invites anyone to share ideas, successes, tips and personal experiences.
