Great British Chefs, the award-winning premium recipe website, has launched a new Summertime App in partnership with online grocer Ocado. Full of “fabulous dishes worthy of the great British Summer of 2012″, proceeds of the App will go towards Action Against Hunger, a global charity committed to ending world hunger while saving lives of malnourished children.
Packed with over 100 lovingly crafted recipes from 21 of the most talented British chefs - including our very own Josh Eggleton from The Pony & Trap – this app will help people of all cooking abilities hone their skills, allowing them to create their own award winning dishes. From irresistible dinner party menus, glamorous picnics to sumptuous BBQ recipes and delightful summer puddings, there’s a summery dish for every food lover, no matter where they are.
Food lovers can tap into an extensive library of recipes for inspiration and each recipe is linked through to an aggregated shopping basket, enabling users to purchase all the related ingredients in a single click from Ocado.com.
The Summertime App also includes instructional videos to help perfect your cooking skills such as making a mayonnaise or tips on how to prepare an artichoke. Users can search by individual ingredient, specific course or level of cooking complexity and then simply click to buy all of their ingredients from Ocado.com. The app showcases recipes ranging from classics with a twist such as Kedgeree, Coronation chicken salad, Chicken and curry Kiev, Cod scotch eggs, Salmon skewers, Eton mess, to stunning summertime dinner party sensations such as Burrata with chickpea fritters & summer salad, Ceviche of Trout with Avocado Sorbet, Monkfish with tomato, ginger and garlic, Whole grilled sea bass with fennel and orange salad, Cod with pork belly, Asparagus, roast red onion and blue cheese tarts and Pimms and Hendricks jelly.
Says Ocado founder Jason Gissing, “Joining forces with Great British Chefs to create the Summertime App is hugely exciting for Ocado. For the first time you can create your own award winning menu and buy the ingredients from Ocado with a simple click. This unique function makes it easy for people to create a fine dining experience in their own home and have fun experimenting with Ocado’s super fresh and delicious summer ingredients.”
The app, says Ollie from Great British Chefs, is already the number one paid lifestyle app – and the more it is downloaded, the more money goes to Action Against Hunger (a minimum of £1.20 per sale)! The app is available for just £1.99 for both iPad and iPhone – just search for “Summertime App” in the App Store to download.
