Loads of recipes to try out!! I'm a college student who loves to cook for her family. This app suits my urge to cook almost every time. If you want all the recipes, you gotta pay for it though.
Found lots of interesting recipes
Browsing through the app makes me hungry
Very high quality recipes. Definitely worth the extra $ for the premium account!
I love this app. It is a little pricey, but totally worth it to assist you with your foodie life. You get menu categorization, pictures, video techniques, automated shopping lists, and everything interfaces properly all in one app! Thank you 🥘 🥗😻!
SimpleFeast is simply awesome!

Love this app! Great recipes, incredible variety, I love that you can see what ingredients you need at each step. I also love the shopping list feature! I use this every time I cook!
Delicious and simple
Never have I come across a cooking app as thorough as Feast Kitchen. As someone who enjoys the art of cooking, I found that within this app is a variety of different cooking styles-from easy to more involved. You will find that within this app are various categories stating just that-easy to more difficult. There are also how-to videos contained within the recipes for those who are unsure of the way to poach an egg or cutting up onions, as examples. Plus, there are new recipes added every week. There is also a "grocery" category that I find invaluable as well as a category that includes your favorite recipes. I looked into this app when it was first suggested by Apple when they sent out a generic email of several new cooking apps available in the store. I was so surprised when I started digging into Feast Kitchen. One of the categories is "free" meaning there are several recipes for you to try without a subscription. There are also several recipes that are included, but you have to have a subscription by way of their monthly or yearly payment plan and are there just for you to try out.
I decided I would try a free recipe called "Dahlia Lounge Mussels with spicy pork Sausage" submitted by Chef Tom Douglas who owns restaurants in Seattle. Absolutely delicious! I substituted New Orleans Andouille sausage instead of the chorizo because that's what I had on hand. It's very simple, but delicious. The fragrance of the onions cooking in the olive oil and then incorporated into the crushed tomatoes and the sausage makes you want to eat this dish before its fully cooked. This was my trial recipe and so glad I chose this recipe to review.
I think that once you choose to try out any of the free recipes you will be tempted to subscribe to either the yearly plan or pay the month-by-month plan, as I did, to "unlock" the ingredients to several recipes.
Out of all the free cooking apps available, Feast Kitchen is really my favorite. For those of us who truly enjoy cooking or are just novice cooking, Fast Kitchen is the app for you.
Nice but wishing for an iPad optimized app
The app is nice, but it's too bad there is not optimized for an iPad or even the iPad Pro's larger screen. Most iPad stands don't work in a vertical orientation, yet this iPhone only app cannot be used in a horizontal orientation on an iPad. I had hoped this would get fixed over time, but it hasn't. I'm deleting the app.
One of the best apps
A must have app, I wonder why it's not featured on the AppStore!!
So much inspiration for new awesome you, you wont know where to start!
What a great app! The pics are stunning as well as the technique videos!! The food you create with this app will blow you away!!
Mortgage the house to RENT the recipes!
This is the most ridiculous, overrated food app yet!
There are so many great apps and websites out there with truly amazing food, there's no sane reason to throw good money away just to satisfy the developers GREED on this one!
1. You have to pay exorbitant amounts to RENT the recipes! There's no way to print them or save your favorites. They allow you to "heart" recipes, but who knows how long they will last.
Jacque Pepin is a world renowned master chef with a library of cookbooks to his name. You could buy several of his books online for the price of one years rental of this app, and you'll get so much more for your money! (He is the rare gem in this app.)
If you buy a cookbook or subscribe to a magazine, you can refer back to them for as long as you please.
2. The "free" recipes are frequently incomplete. Part of it is free, but the sub recipes for ingredients in the main recipe are in the paid group. NOT HONEST!
3. The recipes themselves seem ok, albeit most are not geared for the home cook, even if experienced.
4. Many recipes are incoherently written and use obscure ingredients with no reasonable substitutes given. These are old tricks insecure chefs use to try to prevent others from learning their techniques.
The rest of the world has evolved from this nonsense. Too bad the app hasn't.
5. The photos mostly look good, although highly stylized. Though some look like something I wouldn't even feed to my dog. Ugh! Blobs of unidentifiable mass on a plate.
In summary, if you want to look at (mostly) pretty pictures & dream of cooking like that, and you like reading recipes on a tiny iPhone screen as it sits in a cloud of flour & other ingredients, then knock yourself out.
If you truly love cooking & great food, LOOK ELSEWHERE! There are so many better & more cost effective alternatives out there.
Wow just WOW!
Best app for cooking, recipes, and shopping list! Also high class food are so fabulous!
