Using the search filters

You can narrow down your search considerably by using the EYB filters. These will help you find recipes to match very precisely what you you're looking for by a recipe type, ingredient matches, ethnicity, course, occasion and nutrition.  

You will get more precise results by selecting Ingredient/Meat, poultry & game/Chicken in filters than you would typing Chicken into the search box. In this example we are using Filter By options to find a Thai curry, that uses lemongrass but doesn't use nuts.

  5. To exclude Nuts from your search click on the +, the filter changes to a black -
