Social food networking site Allrecipes.com has added a new Community feature to its site that allows users to find recipes by geographic region.

"Allrecipes.com is very much a social networking medium for members to share a glimpse into their own kitchens and we’re excited to provide them with more options to showcase their passion for creating and sharing great food," said Lisa Sharples, president of Allrecipes.com.

Visitors to the site can search reviews, user-generated photos, recipes, menu ideas by geography or by member profile. A geographical search can be done by clicking on a specific region on the interactive map or by typing in a city name.

Users can browse member profiles of the individuals located in a specific region to find recipes and meals that are unique to the area.

"We were proud to be the first to introduce the idea of community to the online food space and are thrilled that after 10 years we’re still driving the industry ahead with tools and functionality that are unique to our community," Sharples said.
