FINALIST IN THE IRISH APPY AWARDS 2011 for Best Food App
This convenient app collects together 600 recipes from the Gourmand World Award winning series of cookery books by James McIntosh.
It offers straightforward, easy to follow steps for meals, cakes and desserts for everything from an extra special dinner party to a surreptitious midnight snack. James’ love of food and the techniques behind preparing it are clearly conveyed through his presentation of dishes from all over the world.
Each recipe is designed to appeal to home cooks of all abilities, and the clean, intuitive interface makes it ideal for the kitchen. It's rounded off by a range of features and clever touches: shake your device and it will display a random recipe for that time of the day; take a photograph of your own creations and post them to Facebook; and build up a mix of your favourite dishes with the ‘My Whisk’ feature.
With 600 recipes to choose from there really is something for everyone.
Frankly, it's a bargain. Dozens of easy to follow recipes which actually work and taste great. Furthermore, they don't require you to collect obscure or expensive ingredients before you get started. James clearly knows his stuff, and presents this knowledge in a non-patronising, warm and friendly manner. In comparison with other apps by so-called celebrity chefs, this app doesn't trick you into buying extra content after the initial download. It has a sleek design and nice interface too. Well worth it.
I bought this app after attending a cookery demo by James, based on the notion that if it was as good as the demo it would be great. It is. It is like having a professional in the kitchen at your elbow to help you. Doesn't matter what you cook on- gas, electric, Aga or Rayburn, it's all covered. Contains a wide variety of straight forward recipes for every situation with adaptations. I have had the app for nearly a year and have had no technical problems at all.
Whisk Cooking is a must have app!
I have an ipod touch not an iphone and downloaded this app. It works brilliantly and is so useful when faced with the age old 'what are we going to have for dinner?' problem. It is easy to use and inspirational which is a bonus when you are not that fond of cooking! I look forward to being able to upload my photos of the dishes and share my experiences with other Whisk users.
