FOOD52 Is The Best iPad Cooking App For Christmas

I love Christmas, because people get cheery, weather gets crispy and food gets delicious. Luckily, I don't cook anything! If you do cook, however, it's probably a good idea to have some recipes and a plan. FOOD52 Holiday Recipe and Survival Guide is an ace iPad cookbook that'll take care of everything for you.

The FOOD52 iPad cookbook was made by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, former New York Times food writers, and it's a serious survival guide for Christmas cooking. FOOD52 gives you 75 amazing recipes from home cooks, 100 minutes of video tutorials and even an event-planning guide (like what to do for centrepieces and such). There are even vegan and gluten-free recipes!

FOOD52 is built on the same platform as the excellent Speakeasy Cocktails so you get the same interactive cookbook feel that maximises the iPad's strengths. Basically, you won't be able to go back to print again. The pictures of the food are mouth watering, there are step-by-step slideshows and a ton more. If you get this app, you'll be set for the holidays (and everyone will want to come to your party). [iTunes via OpenAirPub]
