App Description

Good Food for Friends has been featured by Apple in the WHAT'S HOT section and in "Apps for the Bank Holiday".

About Good Food for Friends:

How’s about this – plan a menu then invite your friends to dinner – all in one app!

Our Good Food for Friends app has 170 recipes, arranged into starters, mains and puddings – which means you can easily create a lunch or dinner menu. We’ve included 30 drinks and canapé recipes, too. To get you started, we’ve themed the recipes, for example: curry night, show-off suppers and family-friendly.

So, maybe it’ll be Melty onion toasts, followed by Sticky chilli roast chicken and a Little iced lemon mousse?

Once you’ve decided, connect to your friends on Facebook (through the app), or, simply email them the date, time and menu using your own email (we’ll take care of setting up the email, you just fill in the details).

We’ve also included some tips on entertaining, such as how to feed a crowd, and best ways to clear up once your guests have left.

As with our other apps, you can add ingredients to your shopping list, then see ingredients by 'aisle'.

Depending on where you are in the world, or your preference, you can choose to view recipes by metric or Imperial measurements. Each recipe includes nutritional information per serving for kcals, protein, carbs, fat, saturated fat, fibre, sugar and salt. You can save recipes to Favourites and send to a friend, too.


Visit us at www.bbcgoodfood.com for over 8,000 more recipes, all triple-tested by the BBC Good Food cookery team. Follow us at http://twitter.com/#!/bbcgoodfood for Good Food app and kitchen news.

Remember to take a look at our other apps, including Quick, Healthy, One-pot, Cake and Festive for iPhone and iPod touch, and Healthy, Quick and the BBC Good Food magazine subscription on the iPad.

This app is produced by BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC. BBC Worldwide is self-funded and returns profits to the BBC to be reinvested in programmes and services to help keep the UK licence fee as low as possible. For those who wonder why our apps aren’t free, BBC Worldwide has the responsibility of channelling funds back to the BBC, so the BBC can continue to create amazing content.

Any feedback on the app is welcome.
