Thanks to the digital age, cookbooks have evolved from bulky recipe books to apps you can easily download on your mobile device — which makes trying new recipes, especially those by world-renowned celebrity chefs, more accessible than ever. Besides, who needs shelves of cookbooks when you can fit all the recipes you need into your pocket?

With advances in technology, you can also say goodbye to the hassle of reading written instructions on a physical book while making sure your food doesn’t burn on the stove. With interactive apps, it is now possible to watch step-by-step videos on your smartphone while you’re preparing food.

While cooking shows like Top Chef and Masterchef have remained popular, recent years have also seen more celebrity chefs dabbling in developing apps to share their famous recipes with the world. These apps will ensure you’re whipping up delicious, drool-worthy dishes (ranging from Mediterranean to classic English dishes) in your own kitchen in no time —  akin to celebrity chefs like Marco Pierre White or Nancy Silverton.

From David Ellner’s award-winning app to one that boasts recipes from Italy’s top Michelin-starred chefs, check out these apps you can download. You are set to impress your mother-in-law with your fantastic cooking skills the next time she comes over.
