How To Cook Everything: Gone Digital

If you're an iPhone and iPod Touch user, you'll be pleased to know that the online food magazine, Culinate has partnered with John Wiley and Sons to bring one of my favorite cookbooks, Mark Bittman’s best-selling, boffo, award-winning, and amazingly useful How to Cook Everything (Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition), into the hand-held digital age, with the How to Cook Everything app.
Actually, it contains all the book’s content — including 2,000 recipes and recipe variations — plus easy-to-use search and shopping-list capabilities that don’t require wi-fi. This app is truly useful anywhere, anytime; online or offline, it’s all there.
And here’s something really nice: apparently they're able to make it available for the introductory price of only $1.99 — less than the cost of your morning latte (or even your morning ride to work on the NYC subway system).
Finally, from what we've been hearing, this only the beginning of a whole string of awesome cookbook titles — old and new — that Culinate hopes to bring to the digital world.
Something else that's nice: they're also asking folks to tell them what you'd like to see make the move to the iPhone or other digital device, helping them to assemble a virtual bookshelf of your favorites.
Sweet.

A good thing because my cookbook shelves are full. This should free up some space.
