A food app that came out recently called Ratio, redefines the way we look at recipes from strict measurements to a simple ratio of ingredients metric. The app was designed by Michael Ruhlman, an esteemed journalist and cookbook author. Ruhlman specializes in bringing elaborate culinary art to the home kitchen, and continues this trend with Ratio. The app quantifies cooking through ratios of ingredients rather than specific measurements; for example rather than directing someone to use two eggs and a cup of flower, Ratio would direct the user to cook with three parts flour, two parts eggs. This formula works for a wide variety of recipes, and is especially useful in making batters. In this way the user can utilize a ratio of ingredients to make whatever quantity of a recipe they require, as long as they stick with these basic ratios.
The app itself is very user-friendly, allowing you to save recipes and searches, and even share your updates with others. The app also offers a handy calculator to help you while cooking, with metric conversions available. Ratio app is available for Apple and Android for $4.99.
