3 food & drink apps for your consideration

Italian Pantry App

Food- and drink-related apps are becoming better and better. Here are three that have been singled out in the press recently that we thought you might be interested in:

The Kitchn recently published, This New Italian Cooking iPad May Be the Best We've Seen. They introduce it with "If you're looking for a clever yet easy-to-understand Italian cooking app, we think we've found it. Sara Jenkins' New Italian Pantry is built around the idea that once you have 16 basic Italian ingredients in your pantry, you can create almost any meal with whatever other ingredients you have on hand." The video on The Kitchn's site demonstrates it quite effectively ($3.99).

And the Food Republic has Taking Coffee And Cocktail Apps for a Spin, specifically talking about Coffee Guru and Speakeasy Cocktails.

Coffee Guru ($1.99) "...allows you to search for coffee bars by name or proximity, the results of which can be mapped or listed." It gives you a great deal of information about the results...The app is an obvious labor of coffee love as opposed to a mere directory, with plenty of details even the haughtiest of coffee snobs will appreciate."

And then there is Speakeasy Cocktails, which happens to be one of our favorite apps. As Food Republic writes, "Unlike so many cocktail apps that seem to collect their recipes from Tom Cruise's 1988 handbook, this one relies on two of the country's top bartenders for its repertoire. Jim Meehan of P.D.T. and Joseph Schwartz of Little Branch, both speakeasy-style bars in New York that helped propagate the cocktail renaissance, share not only their recipes, but the many tricks of their shared trade. " Personally, we took their Margarita recipe out for a spin recently and found the idea of a little Agave syrup to be brilliant. And we will testify to the excellent videos. It is the most expensive of the three, at $9.99, but is also universal.
