Learning to Cook… From a Cell Phone

It’s not easy to find someone more obsessed with phones than me.

Still, even I was somewhat surprised to learn how important cell phones have become in the kitchen:

It has become the kitchen tool of choice for chefs and home cooks. They use it to keep grocery lists, find recipes, photograph their handiwork, look up the names of French cheeses, set timers for steak and soft-boiled eggs, and convert European or English measurements to American ones.

“It taught me to cook, really,” said Kelli Howell, a college sophomore in Chicago, of her Nokia phone.

Maybe that’s why everything I cook is so bad. I haven’t been using my phone. 😉
