Google Recipe Search Comes To Your Kitchen



Google has entered  into your Kitchen  now with the launch of their Recipe Search.Google has started a new recipe search that it says will bring up only recipes, cutting out other results on such things as the history and definition of your desired dish.About one percent of the queries on Google are for recipes, the company said, and the new vertical intends to make it easier for people to find recipes across the web. Keeping with its search roots, Google isn’t showing the recipes in the results, and is linking to recipes on sites like Epicurious and the Food Network. 

 To start searching your favorite Recipes at Google  Go to http://www.google.com/landing/recipes/

Google's recipe search engine  will serve dishes based not only on the ingredients you may have on hand, but the calories you want to consume and even how much time you have to cook.

But the real innovation is in the background: the entire search is built on structured data that webmasters have built into their webpages using markup code that’s invisible to humans but is extremely useful to machines. The dream of the so-called semantic web is built upon the idea that web pages will be full of such underlying tags so that search engines can parse a webpage to learn someone’s e-mail address or know exactly what a restaurant’s operating hours are by scanning underlying code invisible in the browser.

Go to Google Recipe View, type in your search term and Google will list recipes for you to peruse. A menu on the left side of the screen lets users filter recipes by ingredient, cooking time and calories.The Recipe feature will show up in the left side bar, underneath other so-called vertical searches such as Shopping, News, Images and Videos, and gives searchers options to refine results: such as finding a red curry recipe, then specifying one that has less than 300 calories and includes red peppers.
