Pro Chef,”culinary bible” for iPad, now #1 grossing lifestyle iPad app
Inkling, creators of the new standard for interactive learning on the iPad, has just broken new ground with the release of The Culinary Institute of America’s The Professional Chef (“Pro Chef”) culinary textbook. Named one of the five favorite culinary books of this decade by Food Arts Magazine, “Pro Chef” is now available for fall, exclusively from Inkling for iPad. The app is already # 1 Top Grossing Lifestyle iPad app in the iTunes App Store and No. #2 Top Grossing iPad App Overall.
With more than 40 percent of iPad owners using their device in the kitchen, it’s no surprise the development of recipe and cooking-related iPad apps are on the uptick. However, the current crop of these apps leaves something to be desired. Often, they are nothing more than a digital copy of the book version. No interactivity, no sharing, no videos, no learning….no fun. Further, the lack of professional caliber guidance on the fundamentals of cooking leaves aspiring chefs wanting more. Inkling redefines the cooking app category with a suite of features which can’t be found in any other app, including:
- 100+ embedded videos by CIA instructors demonstrating professional tips and tricks for preparing 800 restaurant-worthy recipes
- Ability to zoom on 750 gorgeous photos of ingredients, kitchen tools and finished dishes
- Interactive enhancements
- Ability to tap into the collective wisdom of cooks around the world with shared notes, discussions and commenting
- Touch a “poptip” for more info, images and web links
The Professional Chef by the Culinary Institute of America app is available at the App Store for $49.99.
