Condé Nast Digital’s latest addition to Gourmet is the launch of the official application for iPad, called Gourmet Live, allowing users to explore their “passions for every aspect of food in a brand new way” (Condé Nast). The application is free, includes some recipes to get started, and is available to download now.
“This app brings together the key components of a good meal — great company through access to social networks, the best ingredients in the form of fantastic content, and a beautiful presentation,” said Juliana Stock, General Manager of Gourmet Live, and Creative Marketing Director for Condé Nast Consumer Marketing. “We’re serving up content developed exclusively for Gourmet Live and curating the great content of Gourmet magazine in reimagined ways.”
Gourmet Live brings more than just recipes, offering news and food-related information from celebrities and even President Obama: “Read about how the Obamas’ eating habits reflect on national food trends. Hear a four-time Oscar nominated actress talk about her love of food, family and butter. Follow one man’s quest for authentic British food in NY and LA” reads yesterday’s release.
New covers are updated every day on the application, with new stories and recipes “at least once a week.” The application also includes a social networking ‘reward’ feature, allowing you to save articles and get inside tips if you connect with Facebook or Twitter. The application’s design is modern and pictorial, placing emphasis on images on the home page and text within the articles. The layout is clean and the font smart, but there is no interactivity (like check boxes).
Whether this will become another essential utensil in your kitchen, or just an application that you’ll try out once, it’s free to download and quick to install – meaning there’s nothing to lose. Just be sure that your hands are clean when you tap the iPad, otherwise there’s going to be even more cleaning to do!

Guess what, America? There are people who really don’t crave burgers, steaks, and gobs of meat for every meal. There are people who don’t even eat food that contain products that come from animals of any sort. This group of people runs under the Vegan flag. Those of you curious about trying this lifestyle should continue reading.
21-Day Vegan Kickstart is an app geared toward folks looking to jump onto the vegan bandwagon, or just take a gander at what the eating lifestyle is like. The app sports step-by-step recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a snack. The recipes are easy to read and offer a decent variety of fine dining choices.
Here is where the problem lies in the app. The description goes on to comment about improving and regaining your health. That statement makes it sound like the rest of us are all living some atrocious life style of eating sin. This just rubs me all kinds of the wrong way.
Eating a vegetarian meal can be just as healthy as eating a vegan friendly course. Both of these can be just as healthy as eating a fat slab of slowly cooked prime rib. What makes it healthy is how people live their lives and what they do to burn off those calories from the prime rib.
The benefit to this app is it gives some pretty easy and simple recipes for people to follow. Even if you are not considering a vegan lifestyle, some simple meals are presented that take almost no time to prepare. Just perfect for today’s non-stop running around society.
The app is currently free and available for the iPhone. Regardless of your dietary preferences, there is sure to be something in here to suit just about anyone’s taste buds. Why not give it a look and see just what your taste buds have been missing all along?
