Lists of ingredients and equipment per recipe, gorgeous photos and a glossary are all included. The first of its kind in Canada, it allows those of us who don’t live in this glorious city an opportunity to enjoy its cuisine long after our visit. And, for those of us who haven’t had the pleasure of stepping on its soil, it’s even more tempting to book a flight stat.

The app provides five free recipes immediately upon download. Pack of 10 recipes from each chef is available for download for a nominal fee.
