All cooking is an art and with this art form you can get increasingly better with practice and knowledge. The Sara Jenkins' New Italian Pantry app for your iPad helps you where Italian cuisine is concerned. This app takes a look at rustic Italian cooking with dishes that are tasty, impressive to serve, but surprisingly easy to follow. Even if your “Italian cooking” to date has only involved dropping pasta into a bowl of boiling water and opening a jar of tomato sauce this app can help you out.
The Sara Jenkins' New Italian Pantry app will have you feeling just like a pro as you take simple everyday ingredients and turn them into incredibly dishes. The app contains 80 recipes in total with full-screen pictures of each dish. There are actually pop-up images throughout the recipes as an added feature. The recipes offer step-by-step instructions which you can view in portrait or landscape mode. For those recipes that have become instant hits you can save them as a favorite and even share them on Facebook and Twitter. Jenkins is a New York-based chef with her own restaurants who is also an author, which means you can expect some professional quality recipes.
The app scores very high with uses who have given it 4.5 out of five stars. It hasn't been updated in over a year but this doesn't seem to be hurting the app in the least.
More Than Just Cooking
The Sara Jenkins' New Italian Pantry app is more than just recipes though you also get 17 different videos that discuss a variety of tips about Italian ingredients. You'll learn how to buy them, where to buy them, and how to store them so they stay fresh as long as possible. You can do a search by season, course, or ingredient to find that perfect recipes, and the integrated kitchen timers mean your dish won’t be forgotten. The interactive pantry is a big feature in the app that keeps track of what ingredients you have on hand. What's handy about this is that it makes selecting a recipe a whole lot easier because you know what you can do with the ingredients you already have. The shopping lists that you create in the app can be emailed to anyone else, maybe even your significant other to pick up what you need on the way home.
