The future of cookbooks may be closer than anyone would imagine.
I’m not going give you any earth shattering news that you probably don’t already know. But, here it is anyway. The cookbook app is not only coming, it’s here. See, I told you that was somewhat old news.
What may be new however is the acceptance of the cooking app as a legitimate format to impart culinary wisdom, instruction and advise. On March 6, at Folies Bergere in Paris, one of four cooking apps will be named the best of the best at the prestigious The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. That part is BIG news.
The fact that digital cooking applications are so prevalent in todays kitchens says a ton about how we consume information. It’s too early to tell if the smartphone or tablet will eventually replace the physical book, but, suffice it to say that it’s firmly in the realm of possibility.
Among this week links we have some digital news and some traditional cookbook reviews and happenings. Big Think has an interesting piece on the creation of an iTunes like format for recipes. That could have some far reaching implications on a digital cookbook industry that still has it’s training wheels on. Stay tuned to see how that turns out.
