Our former photo editor Michael Harlan Turkell spent the past year photographing rustic Italian dishes with the wonderfully talented Sara Jenkins, chef/owner of both Porchetta and Porsena restaurants in NYC. The result is a gorgeous app for iPad packed with over 75 recipes for simple, delicious food that’s easy to make based on 16 basic pantry items, plus loads of beautiful photography (why are we not surprised?). The best part is you can make many of the recipes straight from the pantry and many more with the addition of just a few fresh items. But don’t take our word for it. Try it yourself from iTunes for only $3.99.
