Bloggers Table | Evernote Food App … the ‘elephant that never forgets’!

“I wish my stove came with a Save As button like Word has. That way I could experiment with my cooking and not fear ruining my dinner.”

The above quote might yet be far from reality but recording food memories is just an app away! What is the single most important thing that food evokes? Memories!! Food draws us to the table, food makes us giddy with happiness, we can’t live without it and all of us celebrate good food like there can be no tomorrow! This is where Evernote Food App steps in. {Pssst, it’s free}EvernoteIn this fast paced food centric life where we blog, we eat, we review, we taste, we cook, we click and then we try and bring it all together into one ‘plate’, here’s a cool app that does it for you … and beautifully! The Delhi Bloggers Table was hosted at the delectable Dum Affairs by Evernote to showcase the food app last week. Intriguing, engaging, addictive; it does so much, it was amazing! {Thank you for the first picture Sangeeta}

Of the app they say From romantic dinners to passed-down family recipes to crazy eats in tiny alleys, meals contain some of our most vibrant and formative memories. We don’t just eat for nutrition; meals are a vehicle for conversations, romance, ideas, family, exploration, and so much more. With Evernote Food, people now have a beautiful way to preserve every dish, every table, and every bite they have ever had.The app is all about preserving the experiences, thoughts and memories that accompany food. People can also share their experience on social media platforms via an integrated share feature within Evernote Food itself. The app is simple, elegant and a lot of fun to use.
Availability: Evernote is available on the iPhone and all Android phones {see the video here}

I don’t have a smart phone and never did feel the ‘pain’ … until the Evernote meet of course. That app had me sit up and take notice, even get Evernote hunger pangs! It’s a great app for foodies – good for recipes, good for food reviews, good for recording memories by way of notes, tags, pictures … the works! For foodies in the kitchen it’s a worthy companion! If you are knead-lessly busy, up to your elbows in dough or piping those fiddly macarons, just shout it out and record your thoughts verbally! Hands free fun!EvernoteFor me, I would use it loads to record my experiments in the kitchen, throwing in ingredients, weighing them, changing the order they go in, making the recipe healthier, ‘quicker’, a little different maybe. Happens 24 X 7 in my kitchen …EvernoteI would probably even record my thoughts while making something because thats how I like to draft my posts. A few days later that feeling and those emotions have pretty much been run over by day to day mundanities!Red HarissaThe app also offers something called a web clipper. Clip interesting recipes you find online, maybe an article on food trends or maybe a place you want to review based on others experiences. How often do you make a mental note, dig deep into the brain and come up with loose ends. The elephant shall hold them safe, together and in one place; the elephant always remembers! Oooh, you can also click your friends at a meet, the chef at work or even the Chef At Large!EvernoteAdd tags and life gets more organised than you will ever imagine. Its like an online filing cabinet. Ingredients, events {like this great one at Dum Affairs}, venues, experiences, chefs, food, kitchen accessories, local bazaars … anything available anywhere at the click of a button! It’s all in one place, safe, online, accessible anywhere!EvernoteWhat I like about the Evernote food is that it’s easy to use and you can do so much with it. Troy Malone {GM Asia Pacific Evenote} held our attention, kept us mesmerised throughout the meal. Click, tag, add notes, remember the experience, the look, that recipe so that you can recreate it, quickly jot down what you liked or didn’t like … you can even share your recipe cookbook with friends!   EvernoteAt Dum Affairs {a newly launched Awadhi cuisine fine dining restaurant in South Exten, New Delhi} that afternoon, specialist Indian ch Vikas Mudgal treated us to fine, slow cooked ‘dum’ Lucknawi delicacies! The meal was memorable, galawati kebabs, the three cheese bharwan gutchi {wild mushrooms}, especially outstanding was the haleem {still tantalising my tastebuds as I write}; as also was Chef Vikas’s take on Shahi Tukda and a Jaggery & Fennel Phirini. Fantastic! Good food, good company, and Evernote Food!EvernoteI love it! Remember, Recall, Keep your memories together! Thank you Troy, Karan and Radhika for making the afternoon so energetic and fun. Who would have known that tech and food make for great partners – you proved it! {Thank you also for the free Evernote premium 1 year subscription}
