Michael Ruhlman's 'Ratio' Becomes an Apple iPhone App

Michael Ruhlman's Ratio is coming to the iPhone in the form of an app due out as soon as the Apple App Store can test and approve it. What it comprises: "The 32 critical ratios that form the backbone of the culinary arts, with instructions: doughs, batters, meat preparations, custards, sauces," along with an ingredient calculator, an ounces-to-grams converter, and, this being an iPhone, "ways to share your cooking on Twitter and Facebook."

Video: Pizza Hut iPhone App

Pizza Hut's iPhone app got some big-time love in a new Apple iPhone commercial that debuted last week. I haven't seen the commercial yet, and I can't use the app, either, since there are no Pizza Huts in my area that do delivery--and you pretty much can't get past the first screen of the app if you're not in a delivery area. But here's how it works. Enjoy.... More

Swiss meat company Bell recently released a free bratwurst-grilling application for the iPhone where you blow into the microphone to simulate fanning the embers and touch the screen to move the bratwurst around the grill.

Locavore 2.0: A More Social iPhone Application for Local Food Shopping

Buster Benson of one-man company Enjoymentland launched his iPhone app Locavore 1.0 earlier this year and has already come out with a second version. In his own words, Locavore 1.0 "told you what’s in season, what’s coming into season soon, and where nearby farmers' markets are located,” while 2.0 “does all of that and also lets you be social about it.” As the app loads, the screen reads, “now rolling up to the market,” which I found pretty cute. The screen then fills with a more or less accurate list of fruits and veggies in season, accompanied by confusing but pretty rainbow-colored pie chart symbols. Then there's the tab that “lets you be social about it,” where you can read... More
