Depends what it does. My (step)son was never taught to cook (had he been living with me from birth he would have been immersed in hot oil if he couldn't cook)...so a year ago he decided to try Jamie's recipes using YouTube. He does it EXACTLY as Jamie shows. Not one pea out of place not a pinch of salt less. His cooking is brilliant (if you like Jamie's though I'm not overkeen myself). He just does it like a monkey, he says, nothing clever, Monkey see, monkey do.

I've read that Delia (food much closer to my taste) is going to run online cookery classes. That will be really superb. If Delia's courses can run on apps - Android, iPhone and iPad - then we can use them in the kitchen more easily. That would be really great even for experienced cooks trying a new technique. It's much easier to see it in action.

Note to developers: If you are developing an app for iPad can you please incorporate voice command via Siri? 'Stop', 'Pause', 'slow back', slow forward'.... Yes, could be really useful.

There are no plans, also I doubt if anyone would want to buy a small selection of recipes, when you can call up almost 2,000 recipes for free by using our site on your Ipad, laptop or phone.

I often use my Ipad in the kitchen and set it so it doesn't time out.

Noreen, I see where you're coming from but I was thinking more of the course than the recipes. For pure recipes I print them out and keep them in a folder in the kitchen and make careful notes of what I did, what changes, and how it worked for me, etc. So yes, I doubt I'd ever use a recipe app.

Imagine trying to follow a course on how to fillet a fish or chicken, bone a shoulder of lamb (I have never mastered that!) or some other quite complicated thing then you might like to keep watching carefully the sections you're having a problem with, while you are in the kitchen, with foodie hands. For complete beginners, making a roux is one of the hardest things, and is best watched carefully while you are doing it.

When this course comes out please please make it mobile device friendly and if at all possible with Siri voice command. Thanks :)

an app

if it's anything to do with a mobile I won't be using it . I can use one for texting and I answer the odd call but that's it.

I am afraid this would not be for me either - don't use a mobile 'phone. I haven't a clue how to text - never had the urge to do so either! I e-mail, skype and talk on the "old fashioned telephone" - that seems quite satisfactory to me.

won't be something I would use either.

hate mobile phones, lol. actually hate phones full stop.

I don't understand how a person could buy a cook book on the kindle/similar thing either...i need a cook book/magazine - that gets splattered and torn and worn with the spine creased on your favourites - with colour pictures is very useful too.

I still think its totally pointless, but I think all apps are.

Just buy a cook book and open it. If incapable of doing that, load the page and take you laptop into the kitchen. It ain't rocket science!

Each to his own. But thinking of Delia as a business, a brand, Delia must provide what people want. Tablets and smartphones are the only high street retail products that are growing in both money and volume. But not everyone chooses to stay at the cutting edge of modern technology and that's fine, of course, as long as they don't mind others steaming past them. It is their choice.

but Delia, is Delia.... perfect the way she and her "products" are.

Aunty D is perfect the way she is, and how she presents herself and her fabulous ideas... That is why I love and trust her and her recipes.

I don't take issue with you on that but Delia has stated publicly that in future she will not use TV 'entertainment' but offer online courses. All we are discussing is the platform. Tablets and smatphones are in the ascendancy and pcs in the descendancy. Like it or not the point is that that is what is happening :)

Ha ha! You do talk some cr ap!

To suggest Pc's / Macs are declining is just ludicrous. No one has a tablet without one!

almost as realistic / crazy as

'(had he been living with me from birth he would have been immersed in hot oil if he couldn't cook)'

and

" Tablets and smartphones are the only high street retail products that are growing in both money and volume"


All hysterically funny, totally inaccurate and pure rubbish!

I don't have a laptop. I don't want a laptop. I do have an Iphone (which works - unlike that crap Blackberry you've just sent back James..... ha ha ha). And hopefully when finances are better and hubby stops buying more bl**dy bikes, I will have have an Ipad!

An app would be useful.
