With the power of the internet in your pocket, cookbooks are a thing of the past. No longer do we need to rifle through thick, dusty binders from the 1980’s just to find that recipe for pizza crust. Every phone needs a trusty cooking app with recipes that you can pull out whenever the mood strikes. Your smartphone can be a great sous chef.
