Digital cookbook from Next restaurant to be sold exclusively through Apple
Wednesday 07 September 2011
New details of Grant Achatz's digital cookbook chronicling the Paris chapter of his restaurant Next have emerged.
According to a report in the Chicago Tribune , the inaugural menu for Achatz's Chicago restaurant Next will be bound in a digital format and made available exclusively as an enhanced iBook, sold through iTunes.
The final book will include all the dishes created from the Escoffier menu and should be available by the end of September, the story says.
In addition to "lavishly designed and photographed" pages, the digital cookbook will also offer videos featuring chef Dave Beran demonstrating the duck press which was used to create one of their show-stopping courses. Pressed duck, served in a sauce of its own blood and marrow, was first invented at a gastronomic institution in Paris - La Tour d'Argent.
The 125-page cookbook is tentatively priced at $4.99 and will only be available as an iPad app initially, but may be released as an iPhone and Android version.
Menus at Next restaurant change every three months and are built around different cuisines and time periods. The current menu - an homage to the flavors of Thailand - will also be available as a digital cookbook at the end of October or beginning of November, the Tribune reports.
Another hotly anticipated food app is David Chang's iPad version of quarterly food journal Lucky Peach.
In the meantime, to watch Beran test out the duck press for the first time just a day before having to present the dish in front of the press, watch this YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpcUdXiyWHA.
