James Martin's Food - Simplicity
9 master classes for less than the price of a bag of sugar...
Version 2.0 has been written from scratch incorporating new features and a dramatic performance increase.
With Simplicity, the focus is on the food and only the food. No talking - just great cooking from James, beautiful filming and amazing music. We have chosen to concentrate on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the recipes we include. There are lots of other great Apps out there that provide the reverse.
Simplicity is first in a series of “mini-Apps” from James Martin’s Food. By re-inventing the way recipes are published and used by you, thanks to the iOS platform, we have found a way of making the experience significantly more enjoyable - and with great end results.
With over 80 minutes of film split between 9 subjects, the attention is on the detail in as close to real time as possible and sensible. No point staring at an oven for 45 minutes.
Each of the films has been cinematically graded using lighting shifts to draw your eyes to the important details as they arise without being noticeable. The music we have chosen is from the Paris based Gotan Project with guest tracks from Mind Food, specifically to match the mood and atmosphere of each of the recipes.
Our aim is to give you as rich and enjoyable experience as we can, for the lowest price we can.

What's New in Version 2.0
Completely rewritten for optimal performance and functionality under iOS 4.3 and above. Additional Functionality and tools included too.
I would like to start by saying how great it was to find this app by the one chef that inspires me to have a go at some "real cooking". There are some great features with this app, one being, the ingredient list. Unfortunately, when I used this feature to shop for the steak recipe it didn't list the shallots - So I haven't cooked that dish yet. I also found the level of detail in the recipe relating to the shallots was great, but was not carried over to things like the olive oil etc. Also, when you read the text version and accidentally double tap the screen when scrolling, the text editor comes up, which reduces the viewable area. There are are many annoying things about this app in addition to the aforementioned, surely James can afford a better team to manage this app.
Awful app good recipe
Took ages to load and VERY disappointing - no pictures, no voice over and only 9 recipes! I'm sure they will be lovely when cooked but the presentation doesn't inspire me to have a go. I like the ability to size up the quantities but the measures given are a mix of imperial and metric and the switch between them doesn't work. James, I adore you, PLEASE get yourself a better app designer! Also the icon is meaningless, please consider people may have loads of apps, it needs to be quick to find.
As it says on the box, quality over quantity but extremely well thought out and just what the iPad does best! Comparable to attending a cookery class but much less expensive and with the ability to revisit whenever you wish!
