Want to Go Ethnic in the Kitchen? There's an App for That!


Have you resolved to expand your culinary (and taste) horizons in 2011? If so, there’s a user-friendly app for that. Pairing her love of both food and travel, Registered dietitian and radio host Rebbeca Subbiah created the food blog chowandchatter.com; out of that grew the new Chow & Chatter app. It includes a small but growing collection of recipes from around the world designed to inspire us to think outside our neighborhood when cooking for ourselves, family, or friends. The app, which can be downloaded for only 0.99 cents onto your iphone, ipad, or itouch, allows us to search recipes by dish, ingredients, or cuisine (currently there are 19 cuisines ranging from ever-popular Italian and Chinese cuisines to more obscure ones like Fusion, Turkish, and Vietnamese.) The app provides simple cooking directives as well as photos of the finished products. When you find recipes you love and want to share them with others, you can email them directly from the app.  The app also let’s you go directly to Subbiah’s food blog to see other recipes and any new ones posted.

Subbiah plans to add more recipes over time to help novices and seasoned cooks alike bring some extra flavor and flair to their home cooked meals. While I would have liked to see more recipes for each cuisine as well as nutrition information and serving sizes, this app is definitely a real bargain and can certainly be a useful and tasty tool to use in the new year. The app can be purchased here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/chow-and-chatter/id400685844?mt=8.

Have you tried the Chow & Chatter app? Please share your comments or thoughts, or a favorite recipe here…..

FULL DISCLOSURE: I learned about the app from the author and sprung for the cost myself; I received no compensation for this review and will not receive compensation for any purchases made for the app. Just wanted to share it since I thought you might enjoy it!
