Author and food activist Michael Pollan has lamented that the Food Network and cooking shows have “transformed cooking from something you do into something you watch.” But remember; those celebrity chefs can teach us a thing or two about how to cook. Maybe we’re finding celebrity chefs’ ease and comfort in the kitchen, their quick chopping skills, and their ability to tell when something is cooked to perfection a bit overwhelming. Whatever it is, cooking shows are driving us to eat, but not cook. A recent study found that we actually eat more junk food while watching cooking programs, even if the show is promoting healthy eating. It’s time to get off the couch and back into the kitchen. We’ve gathered our favorite celebrity chef cooking apps for you to try out. In these easy-to-transport apps are videos, step-by-step instructions, easy-to-use grocery lists, and, of course, the big personalities you love.
