App developers got the news weeks ago and now the Apple App Store has gone live with a new category: Food & Drink.

As of this writing more than 7,600 apps are gathered willy nilly under this category. That’s a lot of browsing and, like any category out there, some of the apps are useful and even brilliant, others not so much.


But that’s for you to find out. And be sure to let us know if you uncover some indispensable app out there for food and wine lovers.

Meanwhile, I’m sticking with favorites like Evan Kleiman’s Easy as Pie, Gilt Taste, Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything and Patricia Wells’ The Food Lover’s Guide to Paris, not to mention Weightbot.
