If you enjoy cooking, eating, and generally hanging out in the kitchen, then you are sure to enjoy this food-oriented, informative app. Dictionary of Food and Culinary Terms is a fount of knowledge for those who have ever been confused by a food or cooking term, or who work with international and exotic cuisine. Some of the enlightening features of Dictionary of Food and Culinary Terms are as follows:
  • Advanced search for all food terms. The top 150 terms are returned by the search engine.
  • Add/edit/remove food terms, and access terms you added using My Terms. If you find a definition that needs revision, you can edit it.
  • You can rate food terms on a 5-star system. Once rated, the term is much easier to access later since you can just tap on the "Top Rated" button.
  • Mark your favorite food terms, and view them in the Favorites area. This is similar to the "Top Rated" feature, but with more direct access.
  • E-mail any food term to a friend, and CC or BCC it, too.
  • Rename categories and add/remove categories. Put any term in up to 2 categories, if desired.
  • Shake your mobile device for a random term. This is just fun on every level. Your kids will like this one, too.
  • "View All" food terms for access to every item in the database. This can take a few seconds to load since there are a LOT of terms in this app.
  • Use a simple "finger swipe" gesture to move from one term to another, or use the previous/next buttons. Navigating this food terms database has never been easier!
  • Insert a textual comment about the term. For example, you may want to keep some notes about where you learned about the term, or when you might use it.
  • The history feature keeps a log of what you've seen, so you can always go back to re-read about that term you remembered from days ago.
  • A Settings screen allows you to change the relative font sizes and the size of the history table.
What a pleasure it will be to follow a recipe and not be stymied by some difficult term such as "blanche" or "braise" which is not in your everyday vocabulary! This knowledge from Dictionary of Food and Culinary Terms will help you turn out better recipes, and ultimately, even better tasting food!
