"I'm so excited to share my first ever app with you! I personally created 100% of the content in this app - 63 of my most requested recipes from the many regions of Italy each with it's own video and still images made exclusively for this app. Then I added 25 technique and kitchen basics videos along with my own, personal introduction. This app allows me to get as close as I've ever been to personally cooking with you in your kitchen. So grab some extra-virgin olive oil, and let's cook some great food!!" - Mario Batali

Customer Reviews

Buggy but good content

The videos are great. The instructions and time in the videos is awesome and so are the actual techniques and recipes.

HOWEVER, the are huge bugs which make using the app very frustrating. One, the panels don't easily slide when swiping. I try to scroll up, to see more, and the panel just moves slightly from side to side. No other app I have does this, so I know I'm not an idiot who doesn't know how to swipe. It's the app.

Also, the app fixed the videos to go sideways, but the app itself still won't go sideways. For a $10 app, I would think they should fix these issues.

Other than those, it's awesome and the recipes are tasty.

Fantastic recipes and companion videos

Some of our favorite recipes are located in this delicious app. Many of the recipes require only a few fresh ingredients, which is so nice for quick weeknight meals, but there are also more labor intensive "special occasion" recipes too. The instructions are simple and I love watching videos of Mario demonstrating techniques. It's like getting a one on one lesson from a prestigious chef.

Needs help

Really great content, at least what I can get to. The gyro doesn't work and that blocks half of the apps content from being accessible. If they drop some updates quickly to fix some of the technical flaws I'll change my rating to 5 stars.
