Thank goodness; the cheese folks are getting into apps… it’s about time… something that The Lady has wanted for use on the floor at the cheesemines when someone asks about a cheese she doesn’t carry or knows too little of… now she can check one of these apps and it’s all there:
Janet Fletcher released Cheese Plate app earlier this year. This app presents 25 cheese plates personally designed by the two-time winner of the James Beard Award and writer for the San Francisco Chronicle.
You can purchase Cheese Plate at iTunes for $4.99.
In addition to her cheese app, Janet has written or co-authored 18 books including Cheese & Wine: A Guide to Selecting, Pairing and Enjoying. This was the first cheese book The Lady ever bought.
She is also the author of The Cheese Course and Eating Local. Both available at amazon.
The second cheese app available is Fromage from Steve Welch which features more than 750 cheeses with pictures and complete profiles and food and wine pairing for each one. You can even add your own cheese favorites with pictures and store them in the app.
This app is a steal at $2.99. Also available at iTunes.
June 5, 2011 Update:
Max Allen and Will Studd have developed a Cheese and Wine Pairing App for the iPhone and iPad. Max and Will have been eating cheese and drinking wine and writing about their adventures for more than a decade.
This app is another steal at $2.49 and you can purchase it by clicking here.
