The Professional Chef

Click here to Buy it Now from Apple App Store, $50

Before you balk at the price, consider this: the Professional Chef app is based on the heralded textbook that has been called “the bible for all chefs”. Curated and written by the Culinary Institute of America (Anthony Bourdain's almer mater) , The Professional Chef, brings together a sick melody of instructional videos, high-res photos, and interactive materials. And like it's paper-bound brethren, the app allows you take highlight sections, search for keywords, and take notes which are saved in the cloud. If you're serious about cooking, put this on your digital wish list.
