The app contains every single recipe from the book and all the tips. In the start screen you can browse recipes, view kitchen basics, view most popular recipes (people can vote on recipes) and see a featured recipe and menu ideas. You can also search by ingredient, quick or advanced. The app has four types of recipes: Fast, Make ahead, vegan and essential.
A recipe is build up in several section that you can browse through. The first page contains number of servings, the basics, the time it takes to make and related content. The second tab contains all the ingredients, the third takes your through the steps of cooking and the forth shows the variations you can make.
You can also easily share recipes on twitter, facebook and email. You can also print them, save it to your favorites and add items to your grocery list. I have to say that I love this app! I made two recipes so far and they were both good and will appear on the menu more often. However because there are so many recipes, everything does get a bit overwhelming and it will take me a good while to have read everything in this app. Surely this app is money well spend and I will be using it a lot. I can recommend it to everyone with an iPhone. The two recipes I made were both soups. I shared the Cream of Broccoli Soup earlier and today I will share the Potato-Leek soup with you. I made the variation that is pureed.
Potato-Leek Soup: (serves 4 )
- 30 grams butter
- 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 3 leeks, white and light green parts only, washed and sliced in rings
- 900 ml vegetable broth
- salt and pepper
- 250 ml sour cream or yoghurt
- Fresh chives, in rings
Put the butter in a large deep saucepan over medium heat. When the butter melts add the vegetables. Sprinkel with salt and pepper and cook while stirring for about 2-3 minutes. Add the broth and cook for about 20 minutes until the vegetables are very tender. Puree the soup with a handheld blender. Stir in the sour cream or yoghurt. Garnish with the chives and serve.
