Complete with great descriptions


This is a well made app for learning all about foods. Lots of terms, in depth descriptions. . I think I knew it was a high quality app when I got to the "Chiffonade" card under the "Cooking Terms" deck and they included a reason for why using a sharp knife is crucial (so you don't bruise the leaves obviously!) I love the Sushi deck where they list all the Japanese names for fish (even some pretty obscure pieces) and then the type of fish as we know it in English

Fun flash card approach to honing cooking and food knowledge!


Downloaded the app and wasn't impressed at first. But as I was going through the cards, I realized I was learning so much information about food I never knew before. This app is a great learning tool for anyone who has ever picked up a fork or spoon!

The bomb diggedy


How is this app not like the most popular app on iTunes? Every human being who eats food, ever, should be required to use this. So much information. More valuable than spending money on an entire college class about food.
