New York, New York (PressExposure) October 11, 2011 -- MergeLeft Reps, Inc, a photography agency based in New York has released a photography based app, a cooking app, Matt's Pantry, with photographer Matthew Furman and chef Matthew Shields for the iPad.
Matt's Pantry cooking app is different then other cookbook apps as it was designed to help the user shop once and cook dinner for the week. The weekly menus are designed to use ingredients throughout the week that might otherwise go unused. How often do you buy an ingredient then don't know what to do with it? You can also shop by recipe if you like. Matt's Pantry helps you waste less food with easy to prepare, beautifully photographed step by step recipes.
Each of the 100 recipes were photographed by Matthew Furman, a New York based photographer on the MergeLeft roster. Unlike other cooking apps, every ingredient was photographed as well as process shots to make cooking the recipe easier.
Matt's Pantry is now available for $3.99 on the itunes App Store. Screen shots, a video and complete list of features can be seen at http://www.mattspantry.com.
