Dinner Is Served! Nimble Chef Introduces First Intelligent Cooking App for iPad
With patented technology and recipes from top culinary stars, Nimble Chef solves ubiquitous challenge of completing an entire menu on time and stress-free
CORONA DEL MAR, Calif., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Nimble Chef(®) announces the launch of its new cooking app for iPad, giving home cooks the ability to prepare complete menus from world-class chefs in their own kitchens. Featuring recipe content from some of the food industry’s hottest talent, including Michelin Star chefs, James Beard Award nominees, Top Chefs, Iron Chefs and celebrity chefs, Nimble Chef is the first intelligent app to solve the logistical challenges of cooking at home. Its patented Smart Recipe format guides home cooks through the entire process, organizing their time in the kitchen in order to create delicious, perfect meals, right on schedule – just like professional chefs.
“Timing is the classic challenge for anyone working in a kitchen, whether it’s the executive chef of a three star restaurant, or someone at home preparing dinner for family and friends. The power of Nimble Chef and our Smart Recipe format helps the home cook be as organized and successful as the trained professionals,” said Chet Harrison, CEO of Nimble Chef.
“Our ultimate goal is to encourage more people to be adventuresome in the kitchen, in order to enjoy the soul-satisfying act of preparing food for our friends and loved ones. With Nimble Chef, we are giving them the tools to create delicious, high quality meals with confidence.”
Powerful Scheduling Engine Does the Thinking for You
Nimble Chef’s sophisticated scheduling engine coordinates multiple recipes or full menus, creating an integrated, comprehensive menu planner with step-by-step instructions, a shopping list, time estimates and targeted completion times for every dish and every menu. Home cooks can see what steps may be completed in advance, and receive real-time updates about when the meal will be ready to serve once they have started. The number of servings can be scaled up or down in multiples of the original recipe, and the scheduler will flag potential bottlenecks or conflicts in advance, suggesting adjustments or alternatives in advance so that everything goes smoothly once preparation begins. To ensure accuracy and efficiency, Nimble Chef even tracks the number of ovens and burners that a user has available.

About Nimble Chef
Founded by Chet Harrison in 2010, Nimble Chef was inspired by two factors: a belief that the most accessible way to improve one’s quality of life is to learn a new recipe; and a recognition that perhaps the greatest challenge is the ability to schedule and execute multiple recipes and get everything to the table on time. Nimble Chef’s proprietary Smart Recipe format and scheduling engine allow home cooks to work just like a celebrated chef, completing certain steps in advance, moving back and forth between recipes, and working efficiently and confidently to get a delicious, stress-free meal on the table, right on time.
