Chef Alain Ducasse joins the iPad age with a comprehensive new application, "My Culinary Encyclopedia."
The app's 280 recipes are divided into five cuisines (Gastronomic, Around the World, Mediterranean, Bistro-style, Desserts) and four major food groups (Vegetables, Grains & Cereals, Sea, Land). Users can also add personal notes, create and send shopping lists and add their own favorite recipes.
