Fresh Juice Reviews: DK Quick Cook App & The Barbecue Collection
DK Quick Cook app
Customize your view to read recipes in a way that makes the most sense to you while you're cooking.
From home-style applesauce to restaurant-calibre wasabi beef, the DK Quick Cook app has more than 500 photographed recipes that appeal to both novice and experienced cooks.
But what really sets this application apart is the intuitive layout; it's customizable so you can interact with recipes in a way that suits your style of cooking: either view the ingredients on one screen to set your mise en place (the culinary term for arranging all of your ingredients ahead of time), then tap to view the method, or for "big picture" cooks, have everything on one screen for scrolling easily through the ingredient and method lists as you cook. Serving guests? The menu feature allows you to scroll between selected recipes, ideal for the multitasking host. $5.99, iTunes.
