New Recipe Search Feature on Google

Google adds new recipe search feature to its page where it only gets you the pages regarding the recipe from numerous recipe website’s and also directs the users towards the cooking directions in relation to the searched item as the feature is only based on the dish name and ingredients.

It also provides a menu on the left hand side of the page for the users to filter by cooking time, calories, food type, ingredients and occasion therefore it reduces infinite search results for any recipe item by only showing the pages in regard to the recipe but not on other details like about the chef/ his cooking shows/  any restaurants/ history and definitions of the recipe. In addition the recipes will also have star ratings and user reviews.
