Sweet, dairy-free chocolate-chip cookies and savory “mushroom ears” are just a few taps away for home bakers creating delectable Rosh Hashanah treats.
Just in time for the Jewish New Year, APPSolute Media has launched Gloria Kobrin’s “Kosher Cookbook” for iPhone (News - Alert) and iPod Touch users – its first digital recipe book as part of its new Cookshelf application.
Ideal for spontaneous cooks who don’t always have recipe files handy, “Kosher Cookbook” features more than 300 of New York City-based cook Kobrin’s kosher recipes, including 50 customized meal plans for Shabbat and Jewish holidays.
“We believe this is the time people are thinking of cooking, have to plan big meals, and don’t know how to impress their guests in the New Year,” Alexander Libkind, CEO of APPSolute Media, told TMCnet. “We therefore have prepared a collection of recipes and organized them into menu plans to make this task easier for those that need to prepare either an intimate meal or a big feast.”
Upon clicking the chocolate-covered pear application on an iPhone
or iPod Touch, the user is led to a menu where he or she can choose recipes and add the needed ingredients to the one-click shopping list. These lists can also be viewed by store aisle or by recipe.
The Cookshelf app is certainly a lot less cumbersome than a traditional cookbook, not to mention tear-proof, Libkind said.
“Having the ability to rapidly create shopping lists is also something you can’t really do with a cookbook or a printed recipe,” Libkind said. “How many times have you gone shopping and forgot the photocopy of the recipe or the print out?”
