Just saw that there is a FREE version for the Mark Bittman “How To Cook Everything” iPhone App.
It’s called “How To Cook Everything Essentials“. The app includes 103 basic recipes that Mark Bittman considers “Essential,” plus reference information and features from the complete app. Timer, shopping list, etc
I was lucky enough to purchase the paid version at a low discounted price of $1.99 back in June. They offer it on sale every few months on holiday weekends, so if you want a bargain, keep checking the price. It’s a fantastic app – read my full review. I think it’s worth the $5 full price!
I’m downloading the freebie app now and I’ll update after I compare both apps side by side.
For the Summer Lovin week over at I Heart Cooking Clubs – Cooking through Mark Bittman recipes!
The cookbook “How to Cook Everything” authored by Mark Bittman is available in a handy, easy to use, full featured iPhone app. I have been browsing the recipes, getting to know the app and I am totally thrilled with it! Highly recommended if you have an iPhone. I would love to see more cookbooks available like this!
Anyway, I saw the recipe for zucchini pancakes, and knew I had to try them. We received a medium sized zucchini in our vegetable CSA share last week, so it was the perfect time to try it.

I just picked up the “How to Cook Everything” iPhone app. It’s the full version of the Mark Bittman book! It’s on sale for only $2 (down from $5) until tomorrow (Sunday – Father’s Day)
UPDATED: June 22, 2010: I love this app. I’ve been using it for a few days now, and it works very well. It’s easy to find recipes, although it’s not the same as browsing through a cookbook.
You can save recipes to your “favorites” as well as set up grocery shopping lists. Search by key ingredient, cooking technique, flavor, or recipe type (fast, make ahead, vegetarian, essential).
I can tell that I will be using this app quite a bit. It’s on the front page on my iPhone! And with the new iPhone OS4, I don’t have to keep reloading the app, it’s been updated for multi-tasking.
This afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised with a wonderful feature! I was cooking the recipe for Zucchini Pancakes and I clicked the underlined text link for cook 10-15 minutes and was thrilled to find a timer pop-up for 10 minutes. There’s an option to add/subtract time, reset and stop the timer. These little touches are excellent and make the app such a pleasure to work with!
Oh and I found a great site called “I Heart Cooking Clubs” (IHCC) that sounds really fun. Until October, they are showcasing Mark Bittman recipes so I will definitely have a chance to put the app through its paces!
