The Video Cookbook for Mac
The Video Cookbook is a cross-platform educational application that provides access to more than 200 video cooking recipes that capture professional chefs in action. The recipes are organized into various categories and the clips include step-by-step instructions.
The application includes both videos and photos in a high-quality format. Moreover, in each recipe, you can view information such as ingredients, difficulty of preparation, number of people to be served and a “Star” button to add that recipe to your favorites.
While watching a video or view photographs, you can also read the instructional information, view how many minutes it takes for a preparation step, access social networks buttons, such as Twitter and Facebook and more.
Furthermore, the initial window allows you to choose a food category, such as snacks, appetisers and salads, side dishes, desserts, Australian native cuisine and more. Additional food dishes can be acquired through in-app purchases.
Apart from the cooking videos, you can access a Shopping list where you can view the exact ingredients you need to prepare each dish for a specified number of persons. The Shopping lists can be easily printed in a friendly format.
Another asset of The Video Cookbook is that it includes a comprehensive glossary of cooking terms. Most terms are borrowed from another language. What’s more, some words even come with audio pronunciations. This makes the app a great tool for cooking students, professional chefs or home cooks.
All things considered, The Video Cookbook delivers a great way to learn how to cook tons of recipes. Obviously, the reason for investing in such an app are the built-in videos and pictures that are worth more than a thousand words when it comes to learning how to cook.
