Today, we’re introducing new features to help you find the recipes you love and get recommendations from people who’ve tried them.

    Narrow in on the perfect recipe

    It’s t-minus 30 minutes before hanger hits. Don’t panic! Now you can filter your searches to find recipes by time, diet and the ingredients you have on hand. 30 minute veggie-friendly coconut recipes?  Done.

    See what magic Lens dishes up

    Our visual discovery technology already recognizes objects in more than 750 categories, and people have been busily pointing Lens beta at everything from lemons to strawberries to find new recipes to try. And now we’re rolling out a way for you to Lens an entire dish and get recipes to recreate the meal. So the next time you want to copycat the waffles at your favorite brunch spot, Lens them to see what ideas turn up.  

    Don’t fry blind

    Picking out a recipe on Pinterest is easy because you can see what it looks like. Starting today, you’ll also see handy star ratings from sites like epicuriousMartha Stewart, and Food Network.

    Now it’s easier to see how a recipe turned out for people who’ve already made it—just scroll down on a recipe to see their tips and photos.

    Looking forward to seeing what you cook up!
