This recipe app transforms Nathan Myhrvold's best-selling 'Modernist Cuisine' cookbook into a fantastic app.

The Modernist Cuisine app features the same photography and recipes that can be found in the cookbook, along with video tutorials that break down techniques like using a blow torch to melt the sugars on top of a crème brûlée. Dynamic photos, diagrams and video tutorials make being able to replicate these recipes that much easier for all levels of chefs.

The app also includes features to help chefs create shopping lists and a glossary to define ingredients that may be foreign to some beginners. To get started, three sample recipes can be downloaded, with additional chapters of the Modernist Cuisine cookbook available for purchase in-app.
