The grinning Cockernee is back with yet another app for the iPhone
Jamie’s Recipes Review
by on December 10, 2010
Aaaah, Jamie Oliver. You really have to either love him or loathe him. The gurning Cockernee cook is constantly on our tellies and in our Sunday supplement magazines hectoring us about some cooking-related cause or other.
Yet whatever your opinion on Mr Oliver, whether you think that he is a chancing PR opportunist or a national treasure, you really cannot doubt his passion for cooking and his knack to make good food easy to prepare and cook. His latest cookbook, for example, has just become the fastest-ever selling non-fiction hardback in British publishing history. The boy’s doing something right, clearly…
If old-school cookbooks are not your thing and you would rather use your iPhone to decide what to knock together in the kitchen for a quick supper or a special occasion, then Jamie’s second iPhone app is certainly worth a look. Firstly, because it is free (with ten free recipes and 3 videos featured and further recipe packs available to buy for £1.79 a pop) and, secondly, because the production values are genuinely impressive.
Oliver breaks down the steps in each recipe into really useful ‘cards’ which you can double tap to see a photo or, occasionally, hear Jamie’s voiceover giving you tips as you cook. It’s a format that works really well, and is loads better than relying on a greasy old cookbook.
