Reviews from the popular iOS app:

★★★★★ "As a chef instructor, I find the videos both informative and useful. Students now are in the information age and small segmented videos play right into that. Long lectures don't get the point across as well as 15 minute blurbs. I use whatever means at my disposal to ensure I am producing the future trendsetters in the industry. Thanks so much for a great product."

On My Own... - I've got to work in Florida now but my wife has to stay in her job in Ohio. That means I'm on my own. My cooking skills are minimal, and I desperately need help in making healthy and inexpensive meals. I found this app for my iMac, and it is fantastic. I am now learning some of the very basic techniques and steps in cooking. I'm also finding out that I've been doing many things wrongly and ruining the nutritional value of certain foods as well as reducing flavor. This app is a must for the non-cooking husband who's out on his own for the first time. Bravo!

It's easy to come up with things that would make this better - In fact, lets do that: it could support full screen mode in lion, or resizing the window, it could contain links to more information elsewhere online. The videos are often ridiculously short, and the action seems to be sped up-- just the opposite of what you'd want. It's clearly a quick port of the iPad app-- some time spent looking at best-of-breed mac apps would do the developer good, it simply doesn't feel at home on the mac. The content seems OK-- I feel like there could be more depth. Imagine if each technique was accompanied by a few recipes that use it, or even just links to relevant wikipedia articles, or provided a space for discussion.
