iPad apps for the home chef

Mobile Apps
Hed: iPad apps for the home chef Dek: With its large screen, your iPad is the perfect kitchen companion. We found three must-have kitchen apps to get you cookin�. 1. All Recipes - Your Kitchen Inspiration -Free -Huge selection of amazing recipes from ordinary people. I�ve tested many myself -Read reviews -Filter options -Scale recipes -Featured 2. The Photo Cookbook -For a more visual experience -Step by step instruction with beautiful, high resolution photos -Great for beginner cooks -based a book series, so you can actually buy more chapters: Baking, Asian, Italian for $5 each 3. Smart Chef Suite -Kitchen side kick -Conversions -Definitions -Substitutions VIDEO Hey everyone welcome to Tap That App. I�m Sharon Vaknin and I�m hanging out in the Chow test kitchen to talk about three apps that all you home chefs...seasoned or aspiring...will love. All of them are on iPad, which is a perfect kitchen sidekick with it�s large screen and gorgeous apps...like the Photo Cookbook. Launch it, and you�ll know exactly what I�m talking about. This 5-dollar app gives you step by step photo instructions of about 80 gourmet, but basic recipes. It�s a great way to get comfortable in the kitchen since not only are the instructions easy to follow, but you also learn about ingredients in the process. Tapping on an ingredient in a recipe will give you its description, ways to prepare it, and other related items. If you decide that you want to email yourself the ingredients, Photo Cookbook lets you do that with just a few taps. When you�re ready to expand your culinary knowledge, you can buy up to 180 more Asian, Italian, and Baking recipes in the app. -- Now if that�s too fancy for you, check out the AllRecipes app. AllRecipes is actually an online community where people like you and mesubmit their own recipes...and let me tell you there are some AMAZING ideas on there. So with this app, you can access the entire collection on your iPad in a pretty interface. Do a search for dish you want to make...browse by filters like course or ingredient...or check out the hand-picked featured recipes. Each recipe is accompanied by reviews, nutritional information, AND the option to change the serving size to make more or less of the dish. AllRecipes is probably my favorite place besides Chow of course, to find original recipes... ...But even with all these recipes at hand, you�ll need to build your culinary knowledge. It won�t replace culinary school, but Smart Chef Suite will help you out with substitutions, conversions, and definitions while you�re cooking. For instance, if a recipe calls for bread crumbs, but I have none of that in my kitchen...the nice little owl will tell me that I can use cracker crumbs, matzo meal, or ground oats instead. You can also convert things like pints to cups, and get vocabulary lessons from the �Definitions� section. Like, what the heck is Aji-no-moto? Oh, okay...good thing we checked, because it�s Japanese for �MSG�. Now go pick your recipes, satisfy your hunger, and master your kitchen skills with these three apps. For more awesome apps, check out CNET TV�s Tap That app channel, and tell us what apps YOU love on our Facebook page. For CNET, I�m Sharon Vaknin. Happy cooking!
