Cook And Dine Like A Master Chef With BlackBerry Apps

If you are inspired by the success of Channel 10’s Australian MasterChef, or New Zealand's MasterChef on TVNZ, and keen to crank things up in your kitchen, then make sure you check out the great range of food and cooking apps on your BlackBerry Smartphone.

First stop is to get your shopping list in order so check out the FREE Our Groceries app. Our Groceries automatically keeps your family’s grocery list up to date with the latest changes on every family member’s mobile phone, and the app’s website. You can also keep track of the key ingredients in your favourite recipes and add them all at once to your shopping list.

The Our Healthy Recipes application is perfect for budding chefs who are unsure where to start but keen to maintain a focus on health and nutrition. Browse and search almost 200,000 recipes, plus save your favourites. Calories, carbs, and more are also provided for each recipe.

Should you run out of time or puff but still want a great food experience, then the Urbanspoon on BlackBerry app could be your answer. Urbanspoon’s FREE BlackBerry app uses your current location to find restaurants near you. Just hit the space bar (or shake the phone if you have a BlackBerry Storm) and the wheels on the app will spin, until they settle on a restaurant of your choice. You can select the neighbourhood, cuisine and price you desire, or search and browse restaurants. Keep spinning the app until you land on a restaurant you want to try.

If after all the above indulgences, you feel like you need to pull back and shed a few kilos then the Calorie Counter for BlackBerry by MyNetDiary is the solution. MyNetDiary is a modern, comprehensive online diet service that offers a calorie counter for a database of over 100,000 foods.

The Online Community is also supported by a Registered Dietician. The app is FREE with a monthly subscription (from $US5/month) to MyNetDiary.
