Food Guide Cover iPhone

The Food Guide is your culinary adviser in an app. The program contains basic information for 2,000 foods and culinary specialties – and assists with translation when on vacation abroad. In order to know what's behind a "Lubina" on a Spanish menu, all you need is to whip out your iPhone.

Food Encyclopedia and Shopping Assistance

For every entry, the app provides at least one photo, evaluates culinary quality and indicates the scientific name, if applicable. In the description, the most important and relevant culinary information is summarized all in one place, and is followed by hints to uses in cuisine and its processing and preparation – without the App actually intending to be a cookbook.

Translation Assistance Abroad

Travelers mostly enjoy that all the food names are simultaneously given in five languages – English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Thus, it is possible to translate menus abroad, to ask about a specific fish on a Spanish market or to look up whether Banon cheese from the cheese menu in a restaurant is made with raw milk or not.

Search by Keyword or Chapter

The Food Guide can be perused by individual ingredients, but is also organized into 21 categories such as "Fish", "Vegetables and Legumes", "Herbs and Seasonings", "Cheese", "Seafood" and "Sausages and Ham", to name just a few.

Favorites Function

Interesting findings can be transferred into an App-specific favorites list with just the touch of a finger. That way, they can quickly be found again at any time.

Runs Offline

It is not necessary to have an Internet connection to run the App. You will always have full access to all of the information, regardless of whether you find yourself on the beach on Mallorca, in a Spanish mountain village or in a delicatessen in Paris.
