The Photo Cookbook is like a private cooking course in your own kitchen with an experienced cook, who clarifies the preparation. Beautiful photography, which is displayed in high resolution especially on your iPad, illustrates every step.
Now also available:
The Photo Cookbook - Vegetarian
The Photo Cookbook - Simple & Delicious
The Photo Cookbook - Cocktails
The Photo Cookbook - Baking
Those apps are following the same concept and using the same user interface as The Photo Cookbook - Quick & Easy.
All of the recipes take less than half an hour to
prepare – many can be made in just minutes!
Watch the video – new features in version 2.0
Every recipe starts with a photograph of all the ingredients. This is more than just a pretty picture or – even less helpful – a montage that is not to scale, so that a chili appears to be the same size as a whole fish. Instead, it serves as a handy way of checking that you have everything ready before you start cooking.
Each short and straightforward step is clearly explained without any jargon or difficult technical terms. What you see in the photograph is what you should expect to see in front of you. Not only is this reassuring for the novice cook, those with more experience will find it a helpful reminder of the little touches that can easily be overlooked. Each recipe ends with a lovely photograph of the finished dish, complete with any serving suggestions.
The basic version of the app illustrates 84 recipes, divided into four topics: “Quick & Easy” (60 recipes), “Asian” (5 recipes), “Italian” (15 recipes) and “Baking” (4 recipes). By In-App-Purchase, you can increase your library to 240 total recipes (that’s 60 recipes per chapter).
basic version with 84 recipes and over 700 high-resolution photos
expandable with In-App-Purchase to 240 recipes and 2,000 photos
all recipes can be prepared quickly
all recipes displayed in professional step-by-step photographs
Each topic is divided into four chapters, within which the recipes are displayed in an overview. Every chapter scrolls vertically, so that you can play with your choices and visually decide which recipe you really want to prepare.
NOTE: This app is similar to the FREE ibook "Step-by-Step" that was also part of the 12 days of Christmas Promotion, but seems far more interactive.
