As with viewers of the TV show, app downloaders will no doubt be divided on their views of John and Gregg’s cheesy introduction, but no one could argue with the sheer amount of content on here. Just imagine how much trifle Gregg would manage to fit on a mouth-bound spoon having not eaten for several hours. Then add a bit more. That’s how much content there is. The “academy” consists of 9 courses, ranging from basic skills to meat, seafood, vegetables and stocks & sauces. Each includes detailed notes backed up by demonstration videos presented by previous MasterChef contestants and winners. There’s a whole host of recipes for each section too, and when you’re ready you can take the “pressure tests” in a bid to gain a badge for each course. Though not a substitute for real cookery classes, if you’re only just getting to grips with the kitchen, this would be a genuinely useful educational tool. And besides, few cookery schools offer much for £2.99.
