When I was younger, my mother would ask for only one thing for any holiday or birthday, a cookbook of some kind. She was always so easy to buy for, just go to the local book store and pick up the latest “In” cookbook and call it a day. Well I feel the times they are a changing. She has moved on from Cookbooks to keeping her own Pinterest account updated with all the recipes she wants. The stacks and stacks of cookbooks she has collected over the years have taken the backseat to the new digital age.
Digital Cooking Options
Now a day’s people are not reaching for the cookbook to find their next great recipe, they are reaching for their tablet. There are so many options out there for cooking apps that it just has taken recipe collections to another level. For example a very popular app for Apple is My Recipe Book . This popular app is only $.99 and has many features such as synching recipes to your shopping list, import recipes from other sources, sharing recipes and conversion tools. These quick and easy tools are taken the place of the heavy books. People want convenience when it comes to cooking now. They want to be able to get what they want with just a touch of a button.
Social Media and Cooking
Social Media has also got into the game when I comes to recipes. SM has stepped up to the game and has started many resources for the Foodies out there. Many people are take advantage of sites like Pinterest to post great recipes and follow other Foodies. Pinterest allow people to connect on a food level and at the same times utilize SM to help master their culinary skills. There are also many SM site for learning how to cook like Rouxbe. Rouxbe is an online cooking school that have great online cooking videos and recipe library and a large library of how to videos for you to see.
