The search panel can be used to filter recipes by name, rating or ingredients.
Multiple ingredients can be added, and a recipe must contain all ingredients you select to appear. To add an ingredient, enter it's name then click the Add button.
If Match exact name is checked, only recipes which contain the searched ingredient exactly will be matched.
Eg: A recipe contains 'ground cinnamon'. If you search for 'cinnamon' and Match exact name is checked, the recipe won't be found.
Wines in your collection can be searched by name, type, rating, country of origin or category.
