Cooking shows are popular these days and one of my absolute favorites is Top Chef. I also love Top Chef Masters. I never miss an episode of either. Even though I have nowhere near the culinary skills of the contestants, I like to imagine what it would be like to compete on either show.
This post is sponsored by Top Chef University To Go App.
They always come up with the most creative recipes! I’ve been spending more time on my recipes lately and have been trying to really learn how to cook. That’s why I was excited to be given the chance to work with the new Top Chef University To Go App on this sponsored post to share with you why this app is so wonderful for those who want to learn to cook like a Top Chef contestant.
This free app is available for the iPhone and it’s full of cook and learn videos from the top 11 chef’testants at Top Chef University. You will recognize many faces from Top Chef including:

I was so excited to see these chef’testants in these videos teaching over 200 lessons organized into 20 course. If you love Top Chef than I’m sure you’ll love this app too. It’s packed full of information and cooking tips with over 60 hours of videos and is a fun way to learn new culinary skills.
I was happy to see that there are plenty of videos that teach Basics & Techniques. I’ve always wanted to learn more about how to properly use my pots and pans, how to best set up my pantry and fridge, how to properly utilize spices and specialty vegetables, and to learn what exactly Mise en Place in and how it can help me become a better cook.
The categories in the app are numerous and inclue:
- Basics & Techniques
- Stocks & Soups
- Sauces & Salads
- Cooking Technique I: Saute, Boil, & Steam
- Cooking Technique II: Grill & Roast

I love how much info is in the Top Chef University To Go App and that I can pull it up on my iPhone while I’m in the kitchen and practice right along with it. This is going to be lots of fun to continue to use and I can’t wait to see how much my cooking improves!
