Social Cooking

Preparing food becomes a social affair with apps, tools and games

Implications - With a variety of apps and online recipe tools available these days, cooking has become infinitely easier for even the most novice chef. Now, the act of cooking is also becoming more of a social activity, with everything from social media cooking apps to social cooking games encouraging consumers to share recipes, cook together and more. As the world becomes increasingly connected through technology, it only follows that individuals' everyday activities, such as cooking, become increasingly intertwined and connected as well.
