The book is a fun read, but I am enjoying his iPad app even more right now. He developed an app with a lot of video commentary, filmed in his own kitchen, and with many recipes he learned in Italy. The real highlight, though, are the video clips with Nonna herself. Watch a real Italian grandmother roll out pasta, and chatter with Mark in Italian — these clips are very funny and a real delight to watch.
If you love the sights, sounds, and tastes of Italy, this is a fun app to cook with, and to cook through.
• Find it: Beyond the Pasta app for iPhone and iPad. $2.99 at iTunes.
It is a lot of fun, although my only request is: More videos of Nonna, please!
