Review by Shoshana Raff, August 1, 2011
I have another confession to make: I’m a tech geek, married to an even bigger tech geek. I also love to climb into bed and read cookbooks as if they’re novels. But I’m very picky about which recipes I actually make for my finiky family and, I only prepare Kosher food. So when I got my hands on Gloria Kobrin and Appsolute Media’s Kosher Cookbook App for iPhone, I was ecstatic! The marriage of my favorites: kosher cooking and technology.
I also consider myself a decent critic – of both recipes and apps, since I’m an avid user of both. Kosher Cookbook is up there in the ratings for its clear, organized, fun and extremely easy to use application. An app built by technology masters with recipes developed by a professional cookbook writer/chef. If you want the app for the amazing recipes but are a bit shy of the technology, there really is nothing to fear. You will be able to understand how to use your Kosher Cookbook application in no time flat. If you love apps (like I do) this will easily become one of your favorites.
And as for the Kosher gourmet in your house, they will love Gloria’s selection of recipes. The recipes are not too exotic or unusual yet not boring or common in any way. All the recipes are classy, gourmet and classic. Take for example, ‘The Classics’ (from that category) such as Baked Marinated Chicken, Pot Roast, Chicken Soup, Cole Slaw, Mandelbrodt, Rugelach, and Stuffed Cabbage. Or the “Masters Gone Kosher” category where you can find Baklava, Boeuf Bourguignon, Coq Au Vin, Meringues, Moussaka, Peach Galette, Roast Duck in Rhubarb Sauce, Salmon Canapes, Striped Bass En Croute and more. The next category of recipes is “Gloria’s Hits” featuring Butterscotch Brownies, Meat Loaf, Rack of Lamb with Pesto and more. You can also find a wide selection of easily organized recipes in the rest of the categories: The Carnivore, Let’s Make a Salad, Soup’d Up, Just Chicken, Vegetarian Gourmet, Lots of Sides, Lite Fare, Breakfast Bakery, Party Fare, Tiny Treats and Big Sweets.
The best feature of all, however, is ”The Tools“. With the touch of a finger, you can organize your favorite of Gloria’s recipes into Meal and Menu Plans (Jewish Holiday menu planning is around the corner, folks!) and she gives you suggestions for meals and menus for each Jewish holiday, Shabbat and seasons of the year. As with most apps, there is also an easy to use search feature, a section where you can add your own recipes and you can create your own customized shopping list from her fully itemized list of ingrediants from each of her recipes. Your complete Kosher shopping list, recipes and menu plan all neatly contained and organized right in your app. Now do you understand why I’m so ecstatic?
No more searching through thick hard-copy cookbook indexes to find the recipe you need. No more pages and pages of lists. No more searching through index cards and drawers for last years Rosh Hashana Menu Plan. Its all there for you in your little app. And the best thing about it – the well used recipe ‘pages’ won’t ever be full of chocolate and oil smudges!
Download the Kosher Cookbook App from iTunes now while its on sale for only $0.99 – regularly priced at $4.99. If having over 300 delicious Kosher recipes and 150 images at the touch of your fingertips isn’t appealing enough, I’ll bet the price certainly is.
