Best Educational Cooking Apps
Every chef lecturer or food technology teacher has to teach a student to a catering or food subject.This scoop it will reflect practice from counties and contexts in order to give resources to teachers and learners about the Industry. At team chefs, we are using IPad2 and apps for some of the students we are teaching and one of our teams is training chefs who each has an IPad2. So how does IPads and media platforms help with learning?

Students bump each other in Kitchen

Students bump each other in Kitchen | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it

This is an app that works really well in the kitchen

Today was the turning point of my career. I turned up to my training kitchen with my IPad in hand. 5  hospitality and catering students turned up with theirs.

They cooked their dishes from the recipe apps one was all pictures recipe the other was complex master chef app the others was a range of visual recipes.

Oh best one was a video recipes app which she paused at different stages

They photographed the dishes at stages with their ipad one videoed their feedback from me on the ipad and the others wrote their feedback on their note pad app.

One used Dragon Dictation is an easy-to-use voice recognition application

The day ended with them bumping me which sent me their images and also gave me a chance to set up a class group on my bump app of who had an IPad

I can use Bump for free texting: send messages and a event from my bump calendar which is linked to my ICal

One of the students  had problems cooking her dishes before she had an Ipad, the dish she presented to me  was amazing and she has a Numbers which allowed me to compile a spreadsheets with what work she has to catch up with.

Their coursework sits on their dropbox app

By the way rules are Ipads out - Ipads away no games no music

Food - Snapguide

Food - Snapguide | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it
Daniel Mullings's insight:

It's not everyday that you find an app for all that is relatively new but has so much potential its unbelievably..

The interesting part about this app is the story about how it came about.The founder wanted to make bread but found it difficult to photograph and video each stage so snap guide was born.It's possible to embed a guide on most sites, including Blogger, Tumblr, and self-hosted Wordpress sites I can only say the thing I don't like about it is you can't embedded it into an ibook book but who said can't you never know.

Anyway that's my app for today and what a find it is.

My last but best by far is this little gem,my mistake big gem.

What an amazing app developed by a  ground-breaking  company that has had my respect for a long time.

 

 I personally use this app with my hearing-impaired students   who like the video and  the images which is almost a step by step guide.

My hats off to future keeping doing what you do well.

Value for money.

Daniel Mullings's insight:

Well, its coming to the end of the year and what is Santa giving us from apple?

Let's start with Sauce app.

 

 There are some good parts and bad parts.

Good part: Very colorful ,step by step,great by step,geat glossary easy search and some amazing clear pictures.

Bad points:

It's in cup measurements.Some images are not step by step. Chapters    are a bit odd. Some  step by steps look like a video but in fact,  are a glorified slide show.

 

 Rating 7-10

 

 Good for students who need image but must be checked first.

App review: Nigella on iPhone

App review: Nigella on iPhone | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it
Nigella Lawson is the latest TV chef to release an iPhone cooking app, Nigella's Quick Collection from Random House, which contains 70 recipes, along with videos. In stead of me reviewing I thought for once you could get someone view. Nah. So what's it like? It's not bad ,pretty pricey for what it does very clear vide almost like watching it on Tv. Love the link from the video to the recipe. Good for visual learners.

Dont buy its not the best educational app its the worst.

Dont buy its not the best educational app its the worst. | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it

It's not very often if ever have I had to say to don't buy at any cost

this app if you can call it that.

 

It was time to bulk buy and review the cooking apps this weekend a disappointed doesn't even begin to explain what's out there. I think its all in the wording that draws the unsuspected to buy the apps like this site. It cost £2.99 it's called global cuisine it's marketed in 3d and try to get it on an ipad is like trying to get an iPad to drive you to work.

The ball downloads on the mac and when you do get to zoom in what do you get ? Images and text about what the country eats.

 

There are some countries that seem to only eat one meal, in fact, its most of the countries.

 

Anyway must fly got to moan about what else we have found in this golden world of cooking apps.

Let's Cook | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it

It is a pleasure to review this app.

Well, its not very often that I come across an app which I think is going to be crap, has one bad review and is backed by a major company. Well this isn't crap it's really good. The one thing you will notice is the quality of the images. We tested the app as we always do on both 1st generation iPad and the new iPad. The images are good on both but the clarity on the new iPad is great. So that's the images. What about the content? The app is easy to use, in fact, its one of the best designs of a cooking app, I have seen in a long time. One of the features I like the most is the slides of the equipment. Anyway that's as much as I would like to say except Its FREEEEEE.

 

Oh yes one complaint you didn't need a video of Fabio on the front it takes up room, which could be used for more recipes . But a great app.

15 Best Cooking Apps for Your Smartphone Slideshow

15 Best Cooking Apps for Your Smartphone Slideshow | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it
Daniel Mullings's insight:

Its a bold statement to make about the best so here goes.

Chef lecture against the blog

 

 15 I agree a great app also has a quiz from the same company that I use all the time. 10 out of 10

 

 14 not bad good images 6 out of 10

 

 13 stays away I didn't like it at all could have utilised the space building it better. 3 out of 10

 

 12 loves it used it all the time with my student's minor problems with the recipes well worth the money 9 out of 10.

 

 11 Not bad but linked to the magazine which means more money. Nutritional values could have been better explained.5 out of 10.

 

 10 to much money just for a grill app spend it on something else 2 out of 10.

 

 9 hated it when I first got but now love it.  You get great updates clear images worth the money 9 out of 10

 

 8 seen this before very boring g unless you are a farmer going to market 1 out of 10.

 

 7 don't know much about Pakeo but any app that cheap is worth a try 6 out of 10.

 

 6 never liked it when it first came out, too  much money even with all the tech 4 out of 10.

 

 5 I can never understand why anyone would develop an app for slow cooking but as the review states design by experts 5 out of 10.

 

 4 Love this app don't like the cluster of images but well worth a look for non meat eaters. 8 out of 10

 

 3 like this app, however the database needs to be bigger and should have had images but for the price well worth a try 8 out of 10.

 

 2 I am certainly glad   that they are not saying this is number two as one of the best it's a menu planner boring unattractive and hope you have time uploading all the  prices.3 out of 10.

 

 1 had to be linked to a TV show its commercial ok no average 5 out of 10.

Escoffier Cook’s Companion Review

Escoffier Cook’s Companion Review | Best Educational Cooking Apps | Scoop.it
Cook’s Companion by Future Group is a free cooking app available for all ios devices. This app is a swiss army knife of information for the kitchen. Th
Daniel Mullings's insight:

It's not very often that you get several apps that all though free should have just been one app. This is the case with Escoffier aps; they are great apps in their own right but should have been one. Interesting though surprising is that they have also teamed up with futra apps that have really amazing apps I use.

So what's so good about these apps?

Well, the cook's companion sells its self read the review.

The one I want to tell you about is the quiz app. Its fun challenging and not for the faint hearted,the speed of the clock is fast.

A great couple of apps.

If we are at a level where e are using apps in our lessons it makes sense if I expand the information what new sites can help us with for our lessons.

This is one of the first trials in promoting websites that give educational discount or a free service.

 

 So how is it linked to food.
