Sara Jenkins' New Italian Pantry View website

Developer description

Sara Jenkins’ New Italian Pantry is the first of a series of iPad apps that re-thinks and simplifies the cookbook experience. In her app, Sara shows you how you stock your pantry with 16 favorite Italian staples, then gives you 75+ delicious recipes that you can cook right now—either straight from your pantry or with the addition of a few fresh ingredients. It’s the reverse approach from other cookbooks - where you usually search by apps, entrees or desserts first. This app also takes full advantage of iPad features—including gorgeous photos, tip-filled videos, integrated cooking timers & process shots, and instant shopping lists. 

Sara Jenkins earned her reputation cooking in Florence, the Tuscan countryside and i Coppi, Il Buco & 50 Carmine in NYC. She is also chef and owner of Porsena and Porchetta in NYC's East Village. The secret to her rustic Italian cooking is her dedication to sourcing the best ingredients and turning them into simple, approachable dishes. Or, as Mario Batali says, “Sara is one of the few chefs in America who understands Italy and how Italians eat.”
