Most food sites are a collection of unrelated recipes. Pages and pages of recipes from one source. Punchfork offers a new take on the traditional online food site by taking top quality recipes from the best culinary sites like Serious Eats, Simply Recipes, The Kitchn and 101 Cookbooks and using customer tweets and Facebook recommendations to rate them. Then they are presented in a beautiful magazine-style easy to use interface.

Punchfork uses a proprietary ratings system where Twitter and Facebook users rate a recipe from between 1 and 100. Social networking users love sharing their culinary results and often recipes only posted in the last few days are accessible straight away making your dinner parties at the cutting edge of cuisine. Only the highest quality source material is used and the fact that the recipes are already 'road tested' by other users means they are delicious. Craving a specific dish? Want to use up the leftovers you have in the fridge? All are searchable with Punchfork. You can even bookmark your favourites and save recipes you wish to try later.


Conclusion
Punchfork is a well thought out site that's obviously been put together by lovers of food. The recipes are presented in a beautiful looking package that gives the feeling of a glossy magazine. Just a quick click gives access to the recipe and the instructions couldn't be clearer. If you're looking for an app that will inspire your taste buds Punchfork could well be the one...
