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!

  • This is a paid app

    By Franqueeta
    They make you take a quiz at the beginning and then you have to pay to use the app this is just another subscription you’ll never use
  • i love this app !

    By ko_xxx
    the display is so clean and the features in the recipes are so helpful. the side programs are also really neat! i’ll continue to use it
  • Great for the first few days

    By Abby4337
    Really loved this app at the beginning. Love the concept but thats about it. I cook at home a lot but just follow recipes and I’ve been wanting to dive deeper into the science behind cooking. I tested into level 6 and I’ve completed that level in a few days and seems like there are no more levels, unless you pay (I'm assuming). Unfortunately $10 a month is kind of ridiculous for a 2 minute lesson and for an app that aesthetically looks unfinished. It’s advertised as being like Duolingo but for cooking, but Duolingo has an option to watch adds for people who can’t afford to pay for the app.
  • Not the target audience

    By Barneythedinosaur6846543126846455463
    So I like this app, but it’s not really for me. I tested into level 6 immediately, and was hoping it would go into more advanced cooking techniques. It doesn’t appear to do so. For the price tag, I don’t think there are really enough recipes to suggest it to friends who are learning how to cook either. I am enjoying the quick review of some skills, and am going to make use of my 5 free recipes, but it’s not really for people who can already cook who are trying to level up their cooking.
  • Videos have no audio after newest update

    By Breathily
    I love love love this app but I can't hear audio on any of the videos since the most recent update. If this was fixed itd go back to 5 stars easy
  • Needs more dietary restriction options

    By Mack C 13
    I love the app, but as someone with a deadly food allergy I’d like to be able to ensure recipes I’m given don’t include nuts!
  • Amazing cooking app!

    By CWitt98
    Delicious recipe options, easy to follow guidance, and awesome cooking tips along the way.
  • I like my kitchen now

    By Leahkras
    Zest is a real life changer if you want to learn to cook but don't know where to start and don't want to put hours in at a time. The small lessons and quizzes really help me learn why and how to cook certain things. The menu/recipes are the best part. I can finally make good meals for my friends and impress them!
  • great app!

    By Mateo_MM
    best app i’ve ever used!!
  • So happy to find this app

    By BD Good37
    This app has been really great. It’s helping me develop my thinking about cooking: how to make substitutions that make sense and how to think about the elements of what I am making (“ok the acidic and fatty ingredients are working together” that kind of stuff.) It is already making me a more capable and more creative home cook. Tonight’s Paneer Tika Masala was my best dish yet. The lessons are well-planned and the writing has a good sense of humor. Very sweet and thoughtful. Highly recommend!
