Mark Bittman app

For those of you who have iPhones...

Mark Bittman has released an app of his "How to Cook Everything" cookbook I have been enjoying - even Dave says he will use it! Even as a recipe non-user, I do refer to recipes and cook books to figure out how to put things together. This app is great to have in a supermarket - suppose you decide to try cooking fennel...just type it in and get a bunch of recipes, and save yourself a second trip to the store...or if you're at home and decide you want to pick a few recipes for the week, you can easily drag the recipes into the "grocery" list and refer to that at the store. It may add silly things like salt, but it's of course easier to ignore extra ingredients than forget the vital ones. I also like that he has a range of types of cuisine in his cookbook, with plenty of Asian choices. There are all sorts of other useful components too, such as a "basics" section, including 16 simple tofu sauces, and some dishes he considers standards. Certainly $1.99 well spent!
