Description

**This is not a cooking game, it's an app that gives you ideas on what to cook**

WHAT YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS APP:
"This is my favorite cooking app. I love it that there are no cooking times, no instructions. It encourages me to get creative, and guess what? I really do know what to do with the ingredients once I've been inspired"

"It encourages me to cook healthy, because all the ingredients are fresh, real food, not sauces, not dehydrated mixes"

"If I'm at the grocery store and pork is on sale, I can flip through and get some ideas. If I have a pizza crust at home but want something more interesting to put on it than pepperoni, I need look no further"

We couldn't have said it better! This is exactly what we made BeTheChef for!


Why BeTheChef ?
********************
Aren't you bored of all these cooking Apps that just have thousands of recipes?

If you want to be more creative, this is your app!

Instead of having tons of recipes for you to find, BeTheChef presents you cooking ideas that are a combination of 4 ingredients that can make an awesome dish when mixed together.

Take that combination, and make something amazing and if you do, please share your dish with us!

Many people that were not good cooks, complained that with BeTheChef 1.0 they did not know how make a dish out of the cooking idea.

BeTheChef 2.0 is here to fix that. We present you with what we think is one of the best recipes based on the BeTheChef idea that you like, so that you get the inspiration you need to cook
you own amazing dish.


Thanks for the support!

App Description
********************

You can use BeTheChef at your home in order to decide what to cook, or even at the groceries store to get amazing ideas on how to combine tastes and build a great menu!

  • Awesome

    by My cooking style

    This is a cool app it's inspires u to create different foods

  • Read the description BEFORE complaining, people.

    by Sadielain

    I downloaded this and found it did exactly what it claimed. People need to read the description. They clearly state that this is NOT A GAME that you play, and it is NOT A COOKBOOK. This is a TOOL to inspire and help you CREATE YOUR OWN RECIPES that you can cook in your kitchen. You don't PLAY as a chef, you actually BE the chef. Hence the name. If you've ever seen the show Chopped, the concept is similar. On Chopped, they give you random ingredients, and it's your job - as a chef - to turn them into something (hopefully) great using your own imagination and knowledge of the ingredients. This app, obviously, is different in that you pick the main ingredient and it gives you choices of groups of other ingredients that could go well with it. Pick the group you like, cook it however you like. Experiment. Have fun. I do wish the interface was a little smoother, but props for using pictures of each ingredient. I also love that it gives you tips, and little blurbs about what each ingredient goes well with. And while I wish the trial included a few foods of each type rather than all veggies, it does what it advertises, and does it well. I would love to see more ingredients added soon.

  • Yes yes yes

    by Selkirk sarah

    Just my style of cooking!

  • Not what I thought.

    by Chinaidy Petithomme

    Hello. I just wanted to say, that when i read BE THE CHEF, i thought it would actually let you BE THE CHEF. I thought I was going to cook something but instead it just showed things about what you should do like in real life. I wanted to cook virtually. The name really caught me off gaurd. Thank You. :)

  • I like be the chef

    by Bria_88

    Cool app!! Love it!

  • Pretty good

    by Oarriaga

    I like how it gives you ideas, then others say how they've changed it, but I would have liked it to have a fruit section.

  • Confusing

    by artescamila

    It gives you a couples of ideas of what to do with single ingredients. Thats all.

  • Awesome

    by B@$T$

  • Needs some work

    by Gasykara

    Love the concept, the graphics and the one combination that I tried, HOWEVER, the app only works about half the time. Very frustrating. I also would like to see a baking version also, if you could just get it to work more consistently.

  • Best app ever!!

    by Kris3mac

    I don't know what theses other people are talking about, this is the best app ever. If you want everything done for you, then this is not the app for you, but if you like to create your own recipes and just need ideas and inspiration you will love it. Totally worth buying it.

  • Boo

    by Cc200211

    You should be able to cook using the stuff off the shelf in the phone for fun.

  • Don't really have a title.

    by Sick of this nickname thing

    I would love this app if it did what it said it does. The way that the information is presented tells someone that they will be able to create the recipes themselves. But they can't.

  • Not so great

    by Wandapol

    This is not a game. When I downloaded it, for some reason I cannot delete it!

  • Not a cooking game

    by Narnia girl

    I was looking for a game where I could cook virtual food and this came up. It's not a cooking game, it's a cook book.

  • Not good

    by Bethechef

    This app is not helpful at all

  • Not good

    by Carrie Morgan

    Do not get this because it is a waste.it is not a game!

  • The Worst Game EVER!

    by Werta.12345678910

    It is the worst game any one could ever get!! You think you can make a meal or dessert but you can't! If you want to 'cook'(your not even cooking) with more than like 3 or 4 vegetables then you have to pay like 30 something dollars! It is so stupid and unfair! Conclusion: DON'T GET IT!! IT WILL SCAM YOU!

  • This game is a Bust!!!!

    by Pollo loco12

    I recommend not buying this app all you can do is Click a type of food and the app gives you 3 ingredients to cook with no instructions or anything!!! DON'T EVER BUY THIS STUPID GAME!!! It also wastes your capacity on your device!!!!

  • Is it worth it?

    by Lilmonkey89

    You have to buy it in order to "unlock" all the ingredients. Not sure if its worth paying for.

  • Not helpful

    by Slrogers1

    Great graphics, but how am I supposed to know what to do with paprika, eggs, tomatoes and goat cheese? Sounds interesting but no instructions = no help. Maybe the paid version is better.

  • Not my type

    by Ariellovespinkpandas

    I got the app to. Make the meals not fun don't get this app if u wanna make the meals!!!!!

  • Sorry but I don't like it

    by

    Sorry but … I don't like this app , I want to delete it , hope you won't be upset , Oh and how to delete this app ?

  • Awful

    by Reviewer123010

    I didn't get the app to look at the food I got it to create a meal!!!

  • Pathetic

    by Bubblepopfly

    I first got the app but all u do is see the vegetables.! Disapointed

  • Its not all that

    by Natsmercado

    It only comes with a few vegetables u can pick and everything else in the pantry it's saved for when you buy the thing. So it leaves you with little choices to get creative. If u don't want to use a vegetable in your dinner, well i guess u are doomed mu friend!

  • Hate it

    by Ranger red

    Why would I waste my money on something I couldn't even cook on

  • Worst app I ever downloaded

    by Rthibo

    After downloading and opening the app I tried to tap an item and it led to to "unlock" the items for $.99. Which I did thinking it was going to be awesome! Except now when I tap an item the app closes and after I restart it I still have the same problem. You win, be the chef. I lose.

  • BAD

    by Moveyy

    I hate this it's really bad don't get it

  • Stupid app

    by $:&(!($.$:7?;

    I think this app is soooooooo stupid waste of my time i think this app would be sooo much better if u could cook the food on this app and thats what i think about this app

  • Uhhhhhhhhh,

    by sasmommy

    Worst app ever! Seriously people this app stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • HORRIBLE

    by Minap76

    by fireggurl

  • What?!?

    by Critter6578903

    I thought it would help me cook and show me at LEAST one thing to cook. It just says: salmon+<3+eggs! Never get this app. Waste of time!

  • Wt???

    by Plusle567890

    U act like its a cooking game. You say that in this game you dont follow recipes, well ITS NOT A GAME AND IT GIVES YOU RECIPES!!!!!

  • Don't buy it!!

    by Dakota Russell

    It doesn't work!! It crashes every time I open it and freezes. It's not worth your time.

  • Would be nice but

    by 313dsg

    they only give about 10 vegetables for free, you must pay if you want ideas for meats and lots of other items. I'm going to delete it, I'd rather not pay for ideas I can find free on Internet searching.

  • It is not free!

    by 19474920018374919174017401

    This app was a wast of my time, I wanted to download a FREE cooking app and this sounded like a good idea and I was excited to try it...but it was NOT FREE! When u click on a food item it tells u that u have to bye a package to see/creat anything. DO NOT download this app!

  • Poop!

    by Person2334

    Poop on everything!!!
