Ratings and Reviews
This is a good quality, very comprehensive cooking school app. I'm glad to finally find a reference that assumes you know nothing (which I don't!) and goes from there. More experienced cooks might like to buy just the more advanced lessons. The videos are good quality, not great, but the instructions are very clear and detailed, and the camera focuses on the chefs' hands to demonstrate the techniques. While they chose past popular contestants for the instructors, its not about the chefs' personalities, but their skills, which I also like. Basically, I think this is a very thorough cooking tutorial, and I think a beginner like me can get a lot of basic, as well as more advanced, things out of it. I would say as my only quibble that their pricing is a little high. Maybe I'd expect the full course to be more along the lines of $60. And I think the introductory price, for which you get ten lessons plus the app, should be MUCH lower. You really can't do anything with the ten lessons they give you, its just a sampling of the types of things you can see in the full course, and they should be more eager to lure customers in with a lower starting price.
Bought All Lessons
I acquired the All Lessons library; I dont typically write reviews but feel so strongly about this series that I came back to write a review. I found this library to be fantastic and I have been trolling the ITunes site to try and find similar content. This video provides very detailed cooking lessons and tips on techniques which are unique and fantastic. It is probably the best thing I have ever acquired on Itunes. Brilliant quality to the videos; wonderful recipies, specific cooking tips
It Is Dead! Zero star!
I bought the whole package from day 1 and yet this app never recognized it on iPad. I'm already in my final evaluation of my final test and had finished all 19 courses and yet after I downloaded the app, it all went back to zero. The worst app!
Developer Response ,
We are very sorry to hear you are having difficulty with the app. Hopefully the following will clarify any concerns you have.
This app is independent of the online course. It is offered by a separate company even though there is common content in the training. The app is more of a reference and skills development solution whereas the online course is meant as a true curriculum.
The evaluations in the app are not related to completing the certification of the TCU online curriculum.
However, if you still subscribe to the online solution you should be able to take the evaluation. It will be current.
Again, sorry for the confusion and issues you are having with the app. Please let us know if you have any other problems.
