Tired of cooking the same 3 meals on repeat? Zest integrates a mind-blowing cooking education into your routine. Learn to cook with us through step-by-step explanations of foundational cooking concepts in fewer than 10 minutes and dishes that bring the concept to life. Our recipes are created by two former Michelin star chefs, distilled by a home chef, and cooked by you, the superstar home cook that you are (or will be). We don't assume any prior culinary knowledge. We meet you where you are and help you improve. Stop copying traditional recipes - start learning from Zest. We've cooked those delicious Bon Appetit dinners. But when we took away the recipes we felt like lost puppies. Zest is designed to teach you the how's and why's of cooking. So when the recipe is gone you can confidently navigate the kitchen. The promise: Taste improvement after one dinner with Zest. FEATURES: STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS We've all tried cooking a TikTok recipe. You rewatch the video 13 times to figure out what the hell is going on. Zest embeds videos throughout recipes so you can click into content when you need it. No more pausing and restarting. Learn at your own pace. CONCEPT VIDEOS Watch a short video on a new concept at your own pace and then cook recipes that reinforce what you've learned. We dive into topics like the science of tasting and the basics of seasoning, sautéing, roasting and more! SKILL VIDEOS Don't know how to dice an onion? Don't be embarrassed, we got you covered. Skill videos are linked in each recipe to guide you along, so you don't have to watch Gordon Ramsey on YouTube (we love his accent too). CURATED MENU Choose a menu to fit your preferences. Tired of wasting produce? Search for dishes including what’s already in your fridge. Got allergies? Compile safe recipes in your menu to find them when you’re ready to get cooking. GROCERY LIST Shop your menu with our automated grocery list. Plus, utilize our helpful tips while you shop. Don't know what a neutral oil is? We got you covered. PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS Rate the recipes you cook, so we can recommend similar ones. Feedback? Technical Issues? Killer ideas you want to contribute to make our app better? Email us at support@zestapp.co. We're always here to help and would love to chef up new ideas together!

No vegan options

So I love the concept. For someone who has no beginning knowledge of cooking/food etc it’s perfect. But being vegan and having other specific food allergies makes it harder to learn the meals. If there was a way to substitute out the foods for a completely different one or to have vegan, and gluten free options that would be great.

I’m 13 and I can cook a little but usually I just have leftovers or instant ramen and stuff like that which is a pain sometimes. So I found this app and it literally is AMAZING cuz I’m always kinda embarrassed at the grocery store looking for ingredients and for every ingredient they say the specific section u can find it in. IT ALSO TAUGHT ME HOW TO REALLY COOK. I LOVE THIS APP SM

Not enough vegan recipes

Not enough vegan recipes and if there were more than 2 it was very hard for me to navigate where they were and how to get started on the 2 that showed up needs a little more user friendly design to it and obviously more dietary restricted recipes

Excellent app if you never grew up cooking

I kept getting frustrated with cooking apps that assumed I knew how to correctly chop veggies or cook meat a specific way. Zest walks you through everything from shopping for groceries to balancing flavors to cleaning up efficiently. Definitely worth the sub!

Absolutely worth the money.

There are so many great features. I especially love the shopping list feature, it automatically adds items to your shopping list for meals you want to cook and additionally will tell you about all of the health benefits of the ingredient and why it is important to have in your diet.

Too pricey

This app was great when I first started using it, but they’ve put everything behind a $100/year subscription now. I’m a college student, so the subscription isn’t in my budget. I’ve enjoyed the things I learned, but I’ve reached the end of what the app has to offer now. I’m absolutely heartbroken that I can’t continue to learn and explore new techniques since it’s too expensive.

Great app

Love the app but needs more recipes.

This is hands down the BEST investment I’ve ever made. I can now actually feed myself, my family and feel good about what I’m putting in my body.

I've never been more obsessed with an app. So yummy, so informative and beginner-friendly, and really funny.

I’m a frickin chef now

Not kidding I always hated cooking. I never understood it and it was always so overwhelming and complicated to me, but ever since this app I feel SO confident. I cooked 2 new dishes this week and I feel on top of the world. Being able to make a healthy simple new dish for my husband and kids is the best feeling ever. I feel so happy there’s an app that teaches me from square ONE. I also love the little encouragements during the recipes. I love this app. 10/10!
