February 11, 2012: Roger Smith Cook Book Conference

Panel: Cooking Apps:  Here Today—What about Tomorrow? Cooking Apps took over the conversation about a year and a half ago, right after iPads were introduced. Everyone — saw the App as the successful merger of cookbooks and TV. Did that happen? The Tech Developers love them, but what about Cookbook Writers and Users? Here Today—What about Tomorrow? If not Apps, then what?  What are cooks looking for?  Recipes?  Random House is looking at buying Allrecipes. Cookstr. Yummly. Epicurious.  As everyone adds “features”, what’s the difference between an App and an enhanced e-book, an interactive web-site or vlog?  Are Apps, even the most sophisticated ones, becoming instantly obsolete as features change so rapidly: how will Siri type technology or Cloud access change things.  And combine all of this with what seems to becoming the new food trend: The Rise of the YouTube Chef.  Expect these amateur chefs (and pros, too) to multiply like rabbits in the year(s) ahead at least on the web.  As a content creator, how do you compete?  As a user, how do you choose and navigate?   Chair: Geof Drummond, Television Producer, Writer, Director Panelists: Dorie Greenspan, Cookbook Author; Andy Schloss, Cookulus / Chef Salt; Tanya Steel, Epicurious, Antonella Iannarino, David Black Literary Agency
