Rather than write a cookbook divided into traditional categories like salads, pastas, and mains, Porsena and Porchetta owner Sara Jenkins decided to organize recipes based on whatever pantry ingredients the home cook has on hand. The chef’s New Italian Pantry has now arrived in the form of an app, and it’s helpful for those who’ve assembled an arsenal of dried pasta, olive oil, and salumi but are unsure of their next step. Check out the trailer here, or at the iTunes store, where it’s available for just $3.99. The title is the first in a new series from Tasting Table co-founder Nick Fauchald and Mizaplas, a digital production company. [iTunes]
