On September 8, the James Beard Foundation released James Beard Foundation Vegetables: Recipes by James Beard Award–Winning Chefs, its first-ever app. The app highlights vegetable recipes featured in The James Beard Foundation's Best of the Best, with entries from Alice Waters, Charlie Trotter, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, and Daniel Boulud, among others.

Available as an iPhone app (with iPod and Android apps forthcoming), JBF Vegetables is a mix of free and paid content. Users can download the app and access any five recipes, or unlock the full collection for $3.99.

The app, designed by Kinetic Art, includes interactive features such as built-in cooking timers, social media sharing capabilities, as well as a “shop” section that features direct links to purchase products and gadgets relevant to each recipe.
