Ratio App

I have a standing offer from my husband since the release of the iPhone 3GS  to buy an iPhone but I keep turning him down because,  “I don’t really need one.” How serendipitous is it that I stumble upon two iPhone apps in one day that I can use in the classroom? Is someone trying to tell me something? Well, here is my second favorite of the day- the ratio app. Every culinary teacher’s got to have this one!

This ratio app released by Michael Ruhlman, is based on his book titled Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking

So if you have the iPhone or are trying to make a list of reasons as to why you need one, this is what that ratio app does:

  • It contains 32 Critical Ratios with the instructions such as doughs, batters meat preparations, custards, sauces (pasta dough and pizza dough, sponge cake and pancakes, fritters and crepes, stocks and sauces, crème caramel and chocolate sauce.
  • The Ratio App also can calculate how much of each ingredient you need
  • The Ratio App converts ounces to grams
  • Costs $4.99

Our students, the chefs of the future will soon consider the iPhone as an essential piece of cooking equipment! Who would have guessed?

For more information and to purchase the App visit Michael Ruhlman’s Website.

    I love the Ratio App and although I considered getting the iPhone I instead opted to purchase the iPod Touch which meant I wouldn’t have to change service providers and I wouldn’t have a large phone bill. This may be a better option for students who don’t want the added monthly expense.
