Fond – The No Hassle Way To Cook From Your Phone

a collage of the fond app recipes and screenshots.

This isn’t a recipe, but it will impact the way you cook.

My friends, Ben and Matt, have come up with an idea to make cooking from a recipe on your phone simpler and easier with no scrolling back and forth, no dimming screens and no ads. Fond.

It’s a subscription based cooking app that’s more intuitive and easy to use than anything else I’ve seen before, so I’m thrilled to be partnering with them and to be able to offer you free 30-day access {affiliate link} so you can see what the fuss is about!

What’s the new cooking app?

Fond is a cool new iOS cooking app that takes you organically through a recipe, step-by-step with no scrolling, no ads and no hassles.

Why you’ll love Fond

Fond is a strictly advertising-free zone that gives home cooks what they’ve always wanted. JUST THE RECIPE… in a super-easy “Recipe Stream” format that makes sense for the way we cook at home, taking you step by step with ingredients, measurements, instructions and timers, so you won’t miss a step.

What does it look like?

Here’s a screenshot of the Garlic and Zest homepage on the Fond app, but you can browse by course, dish type, blogger, or a list of your favorites. It’s even got a dynamic search bar that lets you search by ingredient.

How does it work?

Choose a recipe, scan the ingredient list and start cooking.

Fond takes you through each step of the recipe with clear, concise instructions that include the measurements for each ingredient (so you won’t leave anything out).

After you finish a step, tap the screen and the app takes you to the next step. Fond helps you make the best use of your time in the kitchen by laying out the steps efficiently and automatically setting timers when needed.

When you’re done cooking, you can even snap a quick pic and share to the app, rate the recipe and add any notes for your personal archive.

Here’s just some of the Garlic & Zest recipes you’ll find on Fond:
