We’ve talked cheese apps before – remember my review of Fromage? This week I’ve got another recommendation, Ask The Cheesemonger. While Fromage is still an excellent cheese encyclopedia to which you can add your own cheese discoveries, Ask The Cheesemonger gets the gold for superior design as well as being a useful beverage and cheese-pairing tool.
Created by McIntosh & Bowman, an Australian company specializing in cheese tasting events and cheese-making workshops, this app features a database of over 320 cheeses and plenty of educational material to help demystify the vast world of curds and whey.

Whether you’re a cheese novice or an aficionado, this app has plenty of useful information to guide you in learning more about purchasing, serving and pairing cheeses from around the world.

Wine is an extremely old beverage, renowned throughout the world. There’s also a great variety of wine types, some of which match better with certain meats, others with certain cheeses or pastas — who knows! There are so many options and combinations, knowing them all requires a master’s degree. Well, not really, although being no expert means you won’t always pick the right wine for the right occasion. If you have no idea what the difference between “Cabernet Sauvignon” and “Syrah” is, or would like some help next time you’re buying a wine bottle, this app might be for you.
Let’s take a look at what it can do after the jump.
Glasshouse Apps have developed two applications to make your life that little bit easier. The first, Barista, is full of recipes to creating that perfect, café-style coffee. Whether its a Caffé Latte, Espresso or the humble Flat White – Barista has it.
