★ Go shopping with an Asian grandma ★

Have you ever tried cooking pad Thai or beef rendang but just couldn’t make heads or tails of the recipe? Or have you wandered around an Asian market aimlessly searching for an ingredient you can't even pronounce? Fret no more. Asian Ingredients 101 is a comprehensive guide to East Asian, Southeast Asian and South Asian ingredients at your fingertips. Whether you are shopping at an Asian market or traveling in Asia, this app will help you to identify close to 100 ingredients ranging from spices to herbs to sauces using color photographs as well as their common names in different languages. It also tells you where to find the ingredients at the market (i.e. frozen or dried goods section) and offers little tidbits on selection and preparation.

4/5 stars

easy to use and informative

Great app for both the expert and novice cook, most useful as a reference, but also fun to flip through and go, "oh, *that's* what that is!".

3/5 stars

Good info, disappointing photos, misleading UI

The info is useful, but what's up with showing a video play icon in the images? This makes me expect that tapping the image will play a video, and it's supremely frustrating when instead it just shows an enlarged version of the image on the screen by itself.

Also, the images themselves are disappointing--at the very least you should include a hi-res version that fills the entire iPad screen.
