Enjoy the Lessons

I am enjoying the lessons and learning a lot about the basics. I will never be a top chef, but wanted to learn more and I have. The only problem that I have been having is that the app itself doesn’t work as it should. It doesn’t recognize the lessons that I have taken and when I take the quiz and go back into the app, the quiz goes back to zero. Other than that disappointment, I am enjoying the chefs and their lessons.


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

Very comprehensive

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.
