Our kitchens tend to be the hub of our homes, the information center, communication center and the place all adults gravitate to at a party. Fridges have become message boards, photo and picture galleries, and our appointment scheduler. Today the iPad or tablet is taking over most of these jobs. Incorporating current tech into the kitchen is a matter of choice but can add a versatility that bits of notepaper do not have. I have been told they can even work as a baby monitor! You can buy gizmos to attach your tablet to the fridge or protect it from cooking splashes, sticky fingers etc, excellent for when the children want to bake.
I personally like the apps. I follow many recipe sites and have my favourites on these sites, the ease of just opening the site and going to what I want is great. I still enjoy my cookbooks but I can just as easily lose hours surfing all the recipe sites. On the plus side with a tablet I can save the recipes I like for future use. So much easier than trying to remember which cookery book a recipe is in. Try looking through some of these 50 fantastic food and cooking apps. Another bonus of apps over cookery books, most of them are free, you get up to date recipes and videos of ‘How To’ without incurring any payment – except of course for the initial cost of your tablet.
