Presentingâ€¦Appetites: iPad App & Giveaway!Thursday, February 24, 2011
I have some very exciting news!!!! The kind of news that gets me wriggling in my chair! Some of my Facebook followers may have heard whisperings of this super secret project I’ve been working on. Well today is the day, my friends. Appetites, a new cooking app for iPad created by Clear-Media, has officially launched!
To give you a peek, here’s my promo video (Why didn’t anyone ever tell me I raise my eyebrows a lot when I talk? Hmm?):
Appetites features recipe demos from me, along with 5 other fantastic food bloggers: Matt Armendariz (MattBites), Gabi Moskowitz (BrokeAss Gourmet), Nick & Blake (The Paupered Chef), Adrianna and Caroline (A Cozy Kitchen), and Gaby Dalkin (What’s Gaby Cooking?).
Essentially, the app presents some of our favorite recipes, shown step-by-step, in high-quality video, from your point of view in the kitchen (you see what I see).
So, when I’m cutting up that pomegranate, you’re doing the same right there next to me. What’s cool is that the video segment showing each step will keep looping until you’ve completed it. No stopping to check the recipe, starting, and stopping again because you’ve forgotten what’s next (pshhh, that’s so 2010). Once you’re done with that step, just swipe to the next step.
It was so much fun filming these little cooking segments. I must admit, I felt like a stah. A flight down to LA, a kitchen set, food stylists, production crew, even a fabu makeup artist to make sure my hands looked supple on camera. I was a little nervous at first. What if I didn’t know what to say? What if I had an onion-cutting mishap? Did I really want the entire world scrutinizing my knife skills on high-def video? Eeek.
Thankfully, the crew was amazing. And I didn’t shed any blood. I am so very proud of this project…and I want to share it with you!
Today I’m giving away four Appetites apps!!! To win one of the apps, leave a comment below telling me: What recipe have you always wanted to see me make?
Giveaway deadline is Thursday 3/3, 11:59 pm PST. (Winner will be selected via a random number generator.)
If you can’t wait and need to see it now you can purchase the app on iTunes. It costs $4.99 (which includes 7 recipes); each additional recipe is $.99. So, check it out! Tell all your friends and your momma’s friends!
