Just enter ingredients on hand for fresh and simple custom recipes with start to finish instructions for the busy budding chef
Toronto, Canada – October 19, 2011- Peace Point Entertainment Group announces the launch of the Olson Recipe Maker, a new mobile application from celebrity chefs Anna and Michael Olson. Designed for the food lover with any level of cooking experience, users just enter ingredients on hand to create fresh and simple custom recipes, with step-by-step instructions and tips for cooking a delicious meal.
Olson’s Recipe Maker is not a cookbook, but a highly innovative data-driven application, which generates recipes based on exactly what you already have at home. It’s also an instructional tool featuring short ‘how to’ video segments by Anna and Michael with advice on everything from food selection to cooking techniques. Custom recipes can be saved in your own personal database.
Known for her hit Food Network Canada shows Sugar and Fresh with Anna Olson (produced by Peace Point Entertainment) top chef Anna Olson and her husband Michael, well known chef and culinary instructor at the Niagara College, are one of Canada’s most celebrated food teams. Together for nearly 15 years, they have penned seven cookbooks full of delicious original recipes.
“We are excited to take Anna and Michael’s expertise in creating fresh yet simple cooking to a new platform,” said Les Tomlin, President & CEO, Peace Point Entertainment. “This is a truly innovative app that is perfectly suited for today’s busy lifestyle, no matter your skill in the kitchen.”
“We wanted to share our knowledge and passion for great food in a very accessible and easy-to-use way, with all the techniques and tips to get great results every time. The Olson Recipe Maker has everything the busy food lover needs to create delicious meals simply and quickly,” said Anna Olson and Michael Olson on their new project.
Canada Media Fund (CMF) Experimental Stream financed the project, which is sponsored by KitchenAid. The Olson Recipe Maker was created and produced by Eric Leo Blais, VP Digital Media, Peace Point Entertainment together with Anna and Michael Olson. BCK Group designed the interface and built the application.
