You can now turn your Instagram feed into your own personal cookbook library with the help of a new recipe finder app called 'Handpick.' The clever app will match any mouthwatering food snap on Instagram with the appropriate instructions for cooking or baking so that you can easily recreate anything that might catch your eye.

Just as they would with Pinterest, users begin using the recipe finder app by scouring their favorite food photo feed to find something they are interested in cooking or baking. The user simply clicks on the photo they wish to select and the Handpick app will present a breakdown of the dish. If you wish to see the full instructions, Handpick will then direct you to the original source of the recipe.

Beyond locating detailed recipes, the app also features an ingredient search, which allows you to locate recipes based solely off of the ingredients you have selected. With its easy interface, Handpick serves as the perfect way to find specific recipes based on fixed searches or food photography inspiration.
