The secret to Sara Jenkins' rustic Italian cooking is
her dedication to sourcing the best ingredients. In her
New Italian Pantry app, Sara will help you stock your
pantry with her favorite Italian staples, then show you
which of the app's 75-plus recipes you can cook right now,
either straight from your pantry or with the addition of
a few fresh ingredients. The app is loaded with bells
and whistles — including gorgeous photography by
Michael Harlan Turkell, informational videos by
William Hereford, automatic timers and instant shopping
lists — that make cooking from an iPad easier than ever.
